Natural Scar Removal Treaments & Good Skin Health

Natural therapies for scar removal or reduction are quickly becoming popular. They are fast, easy and cost effective. In addition, good nutrition and health practices can help minimize scar formation. Good wound care at the time of injury will assist fast healing and minimize scar formation. Tips for good wound care are:

  • Never use alcohol or peroxide on a wound. They are caustic to the granulating tissue and will slow healing and worsen scarring.
  • Wash the wound daily with normal saline or sea salt solution. This is anti-bacterial and a natural astringent.
  • Pat dry and do not rub the wound bed. This will disturb the granulation of the tissue.
  • As long as the wound bed is moist, keep it covered. When it starts to dry out, uncover it but try to keep it out of the sunlight.
  • Do not pick at the scab when it forms. This will delay healing because the body has to lay down more collagen and worsen scar tissue. Allow the scab to fall off naturally. Saline washes will assist with speeding up this process.

Since collagen is a form of protein, it is helpful to supply the wound with adequate amounts of protein. It is helpful to increase your lean meats such as; chicken, turkey and fish. In addition, wounds need Vitamin C, Vitamin E, Selenium and Zinc. Taking a good multivitamin every day can decrease healing time and scar formation.

With good wound care at the time of the skin injury and natural scar removal treatments you can safely reduce the appearance of unsightly scars.
