DIY Natural ways to get rid of scars

It does not matter how you got your scar or where it is located, since it can really make things difficult emotionally and cause the lack of self-esteem. There are many creams on the market targeted specially to the reduction and fading of the scars but in most cases there is no need for spending too much money on those since some freely available things in nature and your kitchen can serve this purpose perfectly.

Lemon juice

Lemon juice is famous for its scar and spot fading properties since it contains natural alpha-hydroxy acid (AHA) that can be seen in many ingredients lists of brightening products. It is also one of the simplest methods when it comes to preparation and application. Simple squeeze the lemon, mix the juice with water if you want (but it is not necessary), and apply the juice on the scar with a cotton pad. Once the juice is dry, wash it off with cool water and you are done. Since lemon juice can make the skin more sensitive do not forget to apply moisturizer regularly. Keep repeating the process every couple of days.

Honey

Many people who have sensitive skin and love experimenting with homemade masks have already discovered the wonders of honey for soothing the skin. But the benefits of honey do not stop there since raw honey can also promote healing and therefore, help with scar removal. Since honey does not have any negative effects on the skin, dabbing it on the scar can be done as often and for as long as one wants.

Coconut oil

Coconut oil is famous in the beauty world for its many beneficial properties. It is no wonder since coconut oil is one of the best natural moisturizers and it is also used in many branded products for both skin and hair care. That being said, coconut oil is also a great ally in removing scars precisely due to its great hydrating and healing properties. It can be applied on the scar or whole body and face safely and kept for as long as you like.

Aloe Vera

Again, one of the many ingredients of great skincare products, Aloe Vera is very beneficial for calming irritated skin, making the skin softer and healthier in general and fading scars. There are many Aloe Vera gels available but pure form of this plant definitely has the best effect. And you can easily make your own scar-fighting Aloe Vera gel or lotion at home.

Baking soda

With its numerous uses, baking soda has its place in almost every household. One particular benefit of baking soda is its exfoliating properties that can help reduce new scars. Making the paste is pretty easy as well since all that is necessary is to mix appropriate amount of water with one or two tablespoons of baking soda to create thick paste. Massaging the paste into the scar and then leaving it for a couple of minutes is all there is to this process. Once you wash the face with lukewarm water, combine some other natural moisturizers such as coconut oil or rosehip oil for best results.

Professional treatments combined with nature

If the scar you have is particularly deep, you might need cosmetic surgery to repair the look of the skin in this area. Still, that is no reason to neglect regular care since any treated area will heal even better if it is regularly hydrated with natural moisturizers.

Although scars can be nerve-wrecking, they are no reason whatsoever to put a stop to enjoying your life to the fullest. True happiness comes from the inside not the outside. Still, there is nothing wrong with wanting to look your best so pay attention to your beauty routine, put some effort in homemade remedies and your skin will definitely be grateful.
