Women’s beauty is known to be centered on their face. If that face is filled with scars, then imagine, the hardship they encounter. Thankfully, here comes a solution. Scars come in numerous forms that are caused by burns, physical injuries, accidents, surgeries, acne or other skin diseases.
We know that a scar is formed as a part of a natural healing process after an injury. When the second layer of the skin is damaged it forms collagen fibres to repair the damage which in turn results in a scar. Scars are often than not something you cannot get rid off completely, but there are some remedies that can help reduce their size and change its appearance. Here, we have listed the top 5 effective home remedies that can help fade away scars with time.
Aloe vera is used on facial scars where it is promoted as a moisturizer and its soothing properties reduce the swelling and redness of the damaged skin. Use the extracted aloe vera gel from the leaf and apply it directly onto the scarred area using circular motions. Leave it for about half an hour and wash it off. Apply daily two times for the best results.
Coconut oil will effectively help in fading scars with the help of omega-3 fatty acids and antioxidants present in it. To minimize the scarring simply apply a few tablespoons of coconut oil on the affected area and massage it for 20 minutes. Let the skin soak it up for about an hour and wash it off.
Apple Cider Vinegar
