getting rid of scars - November 12th 2013, 07:03 AM

So I know that I can't get rid of my scars completely, but I need to recover and move forward in my life and I can't do that if the scars are going to keep reminding me that I cut. I just need a away to make them fade and if possible at all go down so they aren't as risen as they are now. So please please I need help because I don't know how any ways. thanks

Hey Kayla, here's a few methods I've heard of.
Use bio-oil on them, they reduce the scaring quite well.
Adding Vitamin E tablets should help too.
Or you could use makeup.
Massage Vitamin E capsules into the scars.
Add toothpaste on them overnight then use 'Boots - Natural Colour Correction regularly.

I think the risen scars won't be able to go down with scar cream and oitment but I have a couple that were really risen and they have gone down themselves and I scar easily and my scars and stuff usually never fade like other peoples do mine are way visible. So your risen ones should go down a little. Also I think that you could change the way you look at your scars and see them as a way of surviving rather than "Oh I cut myself". I mean when I see my scars they just remind me that I'm a survivor.

Anyway for getting rid of scars Maderma(which is probably spelled wrong) worked on the word I cut into my skin and I don't have that scar anymore and like I said my scars don't fade or go away easily. So I would try that.

Don't lose who you are, in the blur of the stars
Seeing is deceiving, dreaming is believing,
It's okay not to be okay
Sometimes it's hard, to follow your heart
Tears don't mean you're losing, everybody's bruising,
Just be true to who you are

I have heard that cocoa butter or bio-oil work.

I wish you all the best in recovery!

Hi! I'm in a similar boat. I'm not sure how well they work, but I've just started using a scar cream myself. There are a variety available and they are meant to reduce scars, to at least make them less visible. I've got Protec scar cream, but have a look around and see what you can find, there are a few. I couldn't find one in a store so I bought mine online, guess it depends on your pharmacy though. Hopefully they help!

Good luck!

I agree with all of their suggestions. I just want to remind you that it'll take a few weeks or maybe even a month before the creams have a noticeable effect normally. I really agree with Br0k3nSmil3s in the fact that you're scars should be a reminder that you are a survivor. You are a very strong person for carrying on even when you don't feel that you should anymore. You survived a test of life and the scars are your battle wounds. You should be proud of yourself
