Scars should be treated as early as possible, not only for aesthetic reasons, but also for the skin to be fully restored. It will be helpful to eat foods rich in vitamins and minerals, and you yourself can prepare a special ointment from natural substances, which should be applied every day until the scar disappears.
Vitamin A or beta-carotene helps maintain the skin in good condition, and also promotes scarring. We can use the products that contain it; most of them are orange cet, for example:
Vitamin C – a source of energy and health, it is a strong antioxidant for the skin, and also has a regenerating, moisturizing and strengthening effect on it. For this reason, vitamin C is a necessary element in the treatment of scars: it promotes the formation of new skin cells and the replacement of old ones. Foods rich in vitamin C:
- Barbados cherry
- Fruits of red color
- Red capsicum
You can also eat nutritional supplements with vitamin C. The most natural are produced from crushed Barbados cherry, they are best absorbed by the body.
Silicon is one of the basic elements necessary for the regeneration of cells in the body and, accordingly, in the skin. This is the first mineral to think about, if you want to have healthy skin, hair and nails. It contains many strengthening creams, since it greatly contributes to the elasticity of the skin. Products rich in silicon:
- Whole rice
- Whole oats
Also you can use organic silicon, it is the basic biological significant element, in other words, it is necessary for human health, and, besides, it is a real elixir of beauty. We recommend taking organic silicon of vegetable origin, since it is better absorbed by the body.
We will prepare a natural ointment to smooth out the scars, which contains elements that help cicatrize and regenerate the skin. We will need:
- Aloe vera (if you have this plant at home, you can take some liquid fibers yourself, which are inside the leaf, if not, you should buy an aloe vera gel in a pharmacy or in a store)
- Chilean wild rose oil
- Essential oil of lavender
- Vitamin E (it is sold in capsules in pharmacies and stores)
Preparation: Mix aloe vera and Chilean wild rose oil in a glass dish, approximately 50 ml, add 10 drops of lavender essential oil and 10 drops of vitamin E, which will serve as a preservative. Thoroughly mix the resulting product with a wooden spoon. In order to keep the medicine longer, you can put it in the refrigerator. Ointment should be applied to the scar at least twice a day, in the morning and in the evening.
To reduce the pain in the scars, we recommend the use of St. John’s wort oil, which you can also cook with your own hands. To do this, put the St. John’s wort flowers in olive oil for 30 days in the open air. The oil will become reddish. The resulting remedy should be applied to the scar that disturbs you three times a day. In addition, this oil helps well with bruises and burns. You can also use the homeopathic remedy Hypericum 6CN: three tablets under the tongue three times a day, not at the time of eating or drinking coffee and not during the use of substances with strong taste, for example, tooth powder.
When scarring and skin regeneration go through with complications and the scars remind us of themselves for a long time, we can use arnica cream, which is usually sold in pharmacies and specialized stores, and take homeopathic remedy Arnica 6CH as well as Hypericum 6CN, which we wrote about higher.
Honey and Propolis: tested means
Bees give us two beautiful natural and economical means for improving skin regeneration: honey and propolis.
Honey has many useful properties: it has moisturizing properties, is a strong antioxidant and antibiotic. It is often used in the composition of face masks, as well as in the treatment of scars. Every day, apply natural honey to the scar for ten minutes three times a day.
Propolis was used by the ancient Egyptians, who were well aware of its antibacterial and regenerating properties, so it treated various skin diseases. Aristotle called propolis “a remedy for various skin infections, ulcers and suppuration.” If every day to apply this substance to the scar, and also use propolis inside, it will quickly restore the skin cells, and the scars will become much less noticeable.
In pharmacies, you can find a cream of propolis, which helps to avoid inflammation, sometimes caused by conventional creams that contain a lot of chemicals.
