Remedies for scars: the types

Before proceeding with the remedies, it is good to know which types of scars are most common. There are three of them: hypertrophic, keloid and atrophic.

The former are formed due to the excessive production of connective tissue due to a wound , usually deep. The latter are generally much larger than the wound, and come in areas of the body where there is greater tension and in subjects who are highly predisposed, particularly those with darker complexions. Finally the atrophic ones come in points of the body where the presence of collagen is missing, creating a depression. These are the common scars for those who have suffered from acne or even chickenpox .

Rose water has an excellent healing power. It is very useful in alleviating small recent wounds . You can buy it ready-made, or prepare it at home with the petals: boil about twenty petals in distilled water for 15 minutes and be careful not to let the steam out because otherwise you risk losing all the beneficial substances of the petals. Then turn off the heat and let it cool , without ever removing the lid. Finally, dab where necessary without rinsing.

-Apply some lemon juice to the scar. This contains alpha hydroxy acids, which help remove dead skin cells and stimulate the growth of new cells. As a result you will have a more elastic skin and the scar will gradually lighten.
