Scars are marks left on the skin after you are wounded. To help repair your skin, there are several natural remedies you can try to remove scars naturally.
How are scars formed?
When the skin repairs from a wound, the tissues that lie beneath it, which are made with connective tissue cells connect the skin the only way it can.
When we get hurt, wounds are produced on the body surface and occasionally internal organs. If the edges of the wound are separated and aren’t join together, the body begins to recover itself, using the connective tissue to bind the skin together again. As the gap it produces needs to be blocked.
How to remove scars naturally..
There are certain foods and herbal teas that can help the scars repair faster and with great results.
Food to heal scars
- It is advisable to consume foods containing vitamin C, drink plenty of juices and consume fresh fruits containing antioxidants. This way you can promote skin recovery and prevent scarring too that may occur as a result of the wound.
- Also, try pulped or gel extracted from aloe vera. (Although not a food) aloe vera is excellent for healing. It should be applied several times a day to achieve best results.
- Chamomile is also excellent for soothing and it is anti-inflammatory too. When the wound starts to heal, there is nothing better than to apply compresses of cotton wool soaked in chamomile tea 2 times a day. The infusion should be cold, and compresses should be applied without too much pressure. Place it over the wound and leave it for 15 minutes.
Recommendations for scars
It is recommended not to expose the scar to the sun, since it may become darker. If you can not avoid exposure to the sun, it is best to cover the wound in some way.
When the injury occurs, thoroughly clean the area. A clean wound is less likely to leave a scar.
If you have a crust formed over the wound, do not remove it, as it is sure to leave a scar: it is best to let it fall off in it’s own time.
