A natural scar treatment cream is often chosen by the way it performs. The highest quality solutions are not only an anti-irritant, but they also have anti-microbial and anti-inflammatory properties.
Advantages and Disadvantages
Oftentimes a natural product can be used even on the most sensitive skin types. That is one of the main advantages to users. The only problem is that it sometimes requires application at least twice a day.
This is the only way a person can experience necessary improvements in as short of a time as possible. However, at least in many cases when the right natural formula is used permanent healing without serious side effects is possible.
Natural scar treatment takes on many forms. Below you will see an explanation of the various possibilities of treatment that involve at least some natural ingredients in the treatment formulas.
- Oftentimes the top recommendation is to use a solution that helps preventing excess sebum output without causing skin dryness. It also helps prevent other side effects from occurring that can further damage your skin.
- If you are looking for a natural scar treatment that is already made up for you, a product that will soften your dry skin while smoothing out rough patches can be very helpful. Finding a solution that can also erase scar lines completely would also be very helpful.
- Cucumber is a very popular home remedy choice. You can make a paste out of it and then put it on the scar and keep it there all night. If you do this for a few nights in a row you should notice that the scar will start to smooth out.
- Lemon juice is a very popular home scar treatment method. It can be found in any regular kitchen. Lemon juice acts like a natural bleach, but be very careful as mentioned above. It is NOT recommended for fresh wounds! It is only meant for scars.
It is also important to know what would NOT work as far as natural scar treatment is concerned. For instance, some sources claim that mederma (a type of onion extract) works like a miracle.
It may very well work and it still is recommended to this day. However, it has never been proven by scientific studies that it actually does work.
Another thing that many sources claim to work is Vitamin E. It is no secret that this substance is one that our skin needs.
However, it is not proven scientifically that taking Vitamin E oil and smearing it on the scar will help. It may not even work, but at the very worst it may actually cause dermatitis in some people.
