Scars are an inevitable part of our lives and there’s hardly anyone who doesn’t have a scar or two on their body. Scars are just a mark that’s left behind after a wound or an injury to the skin’s surface after it’s healed. That’s a natural part of the healing process and there’s not a person who doesn’t have at least one scar on their body. Contrary to popular belief, scars don’t happen just on the surface of the skin they can happen on the internal organs as well, usually after some surgery.
How are scars formed? – When you sustain an injury (a break in the tissues) your body starts producing more collagen which starts building up in the damaged area, strengthening the wound, helping it to heal faster. This process continues for up to 3 months, forming collagen and increasing the blood flow to that area, making the scar reddish, lumpy and raised. After this period the collagen starts breaking up, the blood flow reduces and the scar starts getting smoother and softer. However, almost all scars are permanent, even though some fade away after a year or two. If they don’t disappear after two years you’re most likely going to have it for the rest of your life.
Many people believe that the best way to get rid of scars is to have them removed with a laser surgery. However, these treatments can be rather expensive and not everyone can afford them, so is there another alternative? Luckily for you, there is a completely natural and cheap way to eliminate scars from any part of your body in less than a month and we’ll show you how. We have prepared an excellent homemade anti-scar cream which is extremely effective and easy to make.
Here’s what you’ll need:
¼ cup of Cocoa Butter
¼ of cocnut oil
1 tablespoon of honey
4 drops of natural lavender oil
Take a small pot and add the coconut oil in it. Put the pot on the stove and wait for the coconut oil to melt. Once the coconut oil is melted, add the rest of the ingredients, and mix with a wooden spoon until you get homogeneous mixture. Set it aside and turn off the heat. Put the mixture in the fridge for some 20 minutes and you can start using it afterwards. Make sure you keep the cream in an airtight container, in the fridge when you’re not using it.
How to use it? – It’s very simple. Clean the scared area, apply the cream and massage the area gently. Repeat the process every day, twice a day, once in the morning and once in the evening, for best results. In under a month you’ll notice the scar fading away until it completely disappears. Make sure your skin is well hydrated and moisturized during the day so that your skin is more elastic and heals faster.
