You might be tempted to get an over-the-counter cream or some form of oral medication, but let's take a minute here. While these treatments may offer immediate results, they also tend to carry a long-list of side effects. Plus, would you really want a medicine cabinet full of prescription drugs, creams and what else is there?
Why not try other alternatives that are much safer and all natural?
Let's start with the wonderful aloe vera
. It's gentle so there is little risk of irritating your skin. It's a natural moisturizer and is a potent source of vitamins. It heal skins fast, fade scars, keeps your skin looking soft and healthy.
- You can use aloe vera in raw form.
- Break off a small piece of the leaf and peel away the outer layer to expose the gel. Then massage gel on your skin.
- Let gel soak in for 20 minutes for best result, then rinse off.
- If you don't have an aloe plant at home, there are aloe vera gel readily available in pharmacies.
Another common household ingredient that you can use is baking soda
. Baking soda is made of sodium bicarbonate, an efficient agent to exfoliate the skin.
- Mix a few teaspoons of baking soda with water to form a thick paste.
- Massage into skin on scar areas.
- Leave the mixture for a couple of minutes, so that it cleans your pores and stop further blemishes.
- Wash your face in lukewarm water and apply a good moisturizer afterwards.
