Your skin reflects your inner health, and will reward these efforts with a healthy, beautiful glow. However, some degree of trauma to the skin is, alas, unavoidable. The soft, flawless skin of a baby does not stay that way, and sooner or later we all pick up various scars and blemishes.
While some of these may be sizable and significant such as the scars that can result from a cut or injury requiring sutures, smaller scars such as acne scars can be dealt will effectively and in most cases eradicated using simple home remedies.
To a large degree, this is folk wisdom: not necessarily the sort of thing your family doctor would be able to tell you about, but tried and true remedies such as your grandmother might have used.
Rubbing 100% pure virgin olive oil into a scar 2 or 3 times a day can minimize or even eliminate it, even if the scar is quite large. This works best on ‘fresh’ or new scars, but is worth a try even if the scar is older.
Vitamin E Oil
Vitamin E is the ‘skin vitamin’, and vitamin E oil is probably the best known and most tested scar remedy. You can buy vitamin E oil capsules at any drug store; the cheap kind is fine, and it doesn’t seem to make a difference whether the oil is from natural or artificial sources.
Break open a capsule and rub it into the scar, once or twice a day. (And while you’re at it, swallow a capsule each day as well, along with some vitamin C – both very good for the skin). The vitamin E treatment is virtually guaranteed to work for most scars. Don’t bother with creams or lotions that contain vitamin E, however – using pure vitamin E oil is cheaper and more effective.
Some consider this to be the most effective remedy for small scars and skin discoloration. Lemon juice naturally and gently bleaches the skin, and this makes it effective for certain types of scars that are essentially darkened or discolored spots.
It will not totally get rid of raised scars or indentations in the skin, but it can improve their appearance. You can squeeze some lemon juice onto your finger or a cotton ball and apply it directly to the scar.
