Home Remedies for Scar

I recently had a bike crash when we were having fun biking on off - road trail but I lost my brake as I went downhill.

Good thing that I only incurred broken fourth metatarsal and some bruises on face, legs and arms. Now, that the discoloration and swelling had subsided and my hand fixed up, I could only make my hand recover for 6 weeks and worry about scars.

I bought an over - the - counter anti - scar called Contractubex priced at PHP 530.00 from Rose Pharmacy. With its pricey tag, I could only wish that home remedies are available.

So, I did my research and glad I could do an inventory of all possible home remedies for scar:

  • Aloe Vera. This plant has moisturizing component that can make the scar smaller and lighter. You can even mix aloe vera and vitamin E to make a mixture.
  • Vitamin E. This would help soften the scars.
  • Rose hip seed oil. This is a typical solution for skin problems including  dermatitis, acne and scarring.
  • Lemon juice. The acidic property of lemon can be used as a bleaching solution. Apply this for an hour,  30 minutes before you take a bath.
  • Almond Oil or  Olive Oil. These have similar effects like Vitamin and can be applied 2x a day.
  • Tea tree Oil. This has anti - bacterial component that can help prevent scarring.
Remember to consult with your doctor first especially if you have serious cuts  and scars for best and faster remedy.
