Question How to heal scars quickly - March 24th 2011, 08:35 PM

Ok, so I've moved on from cutting my arm and I cut in places easier to hide without causing suspision during the summer months. I only have a couple of months untill summer and I wear T-Shirts early, so I was wandering if there was anything I could do to heal my scars quicker than time... I read that you're meant to exfoliate and I am doing, but I need home remedies that work and things that I can put on whilst wearing sleeves, unless you only put on for short amounts of time... Please help me/tell me what you do!

Hey there

So I have done a bit of research and found out that actually lemon juice can help reduce scaring because its a natural bleach. I have never used it so I don't know how affective that is. Also Honey is known to help reduce scaring as is olive oil and green tea by applying it on the scars with cotton wool buds.

I've in the past used both palmer's and bio oil which have both been affective and reduced the scaring I had at the time, so perhaps you could look into them although I know the bio oil costs a bit of money.

Its really great your working on reducing your scars and I hope you manage to do so. I really hope this helps a bit!

Tale care,

Using shea or cocoa butter is good for them, as is taking (I think) vitamin E. Eating lots of vegetables is good for you too, as is eating lots of fiber. They facilitate quicker scabbing and healing.

Vitamin E oil can be very good. Bio oil has worked a little for me.

I've been using Bio-Oil, and I'm quite pleased with it. I've been using it for 1 1/2 months (I'm also clearing up scars for summer, actually), and some spots have cleared up pretty decent, but others still need more work. Bio-Oil is supposed to have it's full effect in 3-4 months, so if you start using it soon, you could probably have some fairly decent results by summer.
