Professional scar removal can be very costly, so not everyone can afford it. Is there some other solutions?
Fortunately, you can try using natural remedies that are very effective for removing keloids and scars. They are very simple to use and most importantly they are cheap and you won’t experience those unwanted side-effects from their usage. If there is a keloid or scar on your body that you absolutely want to remove it we recommend trying these natural remedies. There are a few effective ones so you just need to select the most appealing for you and begin using it.
Apple Cider Vinegar
Apple vinegar is an excellent ingredient to erase keloids. It reduces the size and blocks the itching. All you need to do is soak a piece of cotton pad in apple cider and apply it on the scarred area. Leave it for a couple of minutes so that the vinegar can go deeper. If you regularly do this for several times a day, you will notice that the keloids are fading.
It seems that lemon juice can cure everything. Since it is rich in vitamin C it speeds up the heeling process of the skin and it lightens the scar so it won’t be that visibly. Lemon juice is very effective if your scar is recent. You just need to squeeze a lemon and directly apply it on the scar with a cotton ball. Leave it for a couple of minutes and rinse with warm water.
Aloe Vera truly is a miraculous gift of nature. It has a long list of benefits, but here we will only focus on the skin. Aloe Vera keeps the skin moisturized, fresh and hydrated, stops infections and itchiness and reduces the inflammations.
For the keloid removal treatment you should prepare aloe vera gel on your own. Remove the skin of the plant to get to the flesh and put it in a blender to prepare the gel. Apply it to the keloid or scar and let it stay for a couple of minutes and then rinse it with warm water. Use it often so you can get better results.
Scars and keloids are overgrowth tissue of the skin which begins covering the injury to protect it from additional damage. They are just an overproduction of collagen. This is the reason why baking soda is a great remedy since it boosts the production of healthy skin cells by means of exfoliation.
Mix water and baking soda (with a ratio of 3:1) in order to create a paste. Then mix until you get a homogenous paste and apply it directly on the skin. Gently scrub for a few minutes and rinse it with warm water. Do this as many times as you can for better results.
These methods will not eliminate the keloids and scars completely and restore the skin as before the injury, but they will certainly lighten them, make them less visible and reduce them.
To prevent scarring it is essential to start taking care of your injury in its early phase. Prevention is crucial for everything and this is not an exception.
