This post will discuss about how do scars form, the different types of scar, the 6 scar treatment home remedies you can use to reduce scar visibility and a video clip on how to get rid of scar spot tissue on face and legs.

 

Scars form when there is injury or trauma to the skin, especially when the dermis (the deeper layers of the skin) are injured. Greatly simplified, the process of a scar forming goes roughly like this.

 

Blood rushes to the wound site and begins to clot. Fibroblasts, remarkable little cells that help produce several different types of connective tissues and proteins, begin to deposit the foundation for collagen.

 

Collagen is the main structural protein found in our skin. However, the new collagen that is forming scar tissue is different from regular collagen, and tends to be inferior to ‘normal’ skin in its functioning. Still, it does the job-a pretty impressive one when you think about it.

 

Scar tissue looks different because the collagen that’s being laid down is made up of fibers that lie parallel to each other, instead of the regular randomized cross woven pattern that exists in undamaged skin. The scar tissue is tough, not as elastic or supple, nor do things like sweat glands or hair follicles re-grow in it.

 

Examples of Scar Types

 

Below are a few different types of scars that occur, summed up very simply, with some being more severe than others. How you go about remedying your scars will be easier if you know a bit about the scar itself!

 

Hypertrophic: Hypertrophic scars are raised above the surrounding skin, due to the body overproducing collagen. They typically present themselves as a red, raised, and thickened patches of skin. They often form when there is mechanical tension on the wound. They can fade over a period of two to three years.

 

Keloid: Very thick raised scars, more severe than hypertrophic scars, and may spread beyond the original wound site. They can also develop into benign masses. Keloid scarring, like hypertrophic scars, are raised from excessive amounts of stiff collagen fibers deposited on the wound.

 

Atrophic: The scar is sunken in the skin, giving it a typical “pitted” appearance, caused when underlying structures that support the skin are lost. Acne and diseases such as the chicken pox tend to leave atrophic scars.

 

 

Scars vs. Hyperpigmentation

 

Some of these remedies apply to hyperpigmentation, which is when extra pigment is deposited at the wound site. Hyperpigmentation is often seen in times after a bad bout with acne, and can give the appearance of there being a mark or scar.

 

How Best to Reduce Scar Visibility Naturally?

 

Different treatments and remedies and their results vary hugely from individual to individual, as it all depends on genetics, how you got the scar, how long you’ve had it, etc. So don’t be afraid to play around with these to see what works best!

 

Reduce Scar Visibility Tip #1 – Marula Oil

 

Long, long before it became mainstream, marula oil was used traditionally used by the Tsonga people of South Africa and Mozambique, where it is still used by many peoples in that region.

 

Marula oil is used for skin care-as a cleansing or massage oil, as a moisturizer- and even a dietary supplement. From food to medicine, the marula tree and the oil from its fruits have a long history of being extensively used.

 

The oil comes from harvested fruits that hold a nut, inside which rests a kernel. The oil is extracted from this kernel, and a considerable amount of work goes into the extraction process given the tough fibrous make-up of the nut. Once removed, the kernel is cold-pressed by hand for the oil, resulting in a small quantity the precious stuff.

 

The oil is extremely light, silky, absorbs quickly into the skin, and penetrates deeply. It has many uses, but in the case of scars it reduces redness and inflammation, and softens up the tough tissue.

 

The oleic acid enhances the ability of the oil to penetrate the skin, allowing other fatty acids to soak in and do their work. Use it plain or as a base oil-I’ll frequently add it to my scar butter.

 

You will need…

-Marula Oil

 

Directions

 

Rinse the scar and the area around it with warm water. Pat dry. Start with less oil and add more as you need it-if I plan on rubbing it in some I use more, if I am putting it on and letting it soak in on its own I use a little less. You don’t need much, just enough to cover the scar well. Reapply up to three times daily (or as needed.)

 

Reduce Scar Visibility Tip #2 – Baobab Oil

 

This precious oil, like Marula oil, is high in essential fatty acids. 33% of the seed content is oil, with the majority of those oils being oleic and linoleic.  Oleic and linoleic will soften skin-in this case, the tough scar tissue-and moisturize the epidermis, where the visible part of your scar sits.

 

All of the fatty acids help regenerate outer epithelial tissues (basically, the cells that make up the outside of your skin), which is part of why it is so renowned for its abilities to heal our skin and reduce scars. It is thick and rich and remains on the skin longer after application. Again, use it as a base or a carrier or on its own!

 

You will need…

 

-Baobab Oil

 

Directions

 

Rinse the area with warm water and pat dry. Apply a light coating of enough baobab oil to cover the scar. Remember that it will sit on the skin for a while after application.

 

Reduce Scar Visibility Tip #3 – Fenugreek Paste

 

Fenugreek was always one of those remedies that I just steered clear of. Not because of any fault of its own-for some reason the name just always deterred me. But, eventually, I was able to get over that quirk of mine, and now find it a useful ingredient to have lying around.

 

Fenugreek is used for a range of ailments, from easing indigestion to reducing dandruff. It can also help with skin inflammation and irritation, such as that which may occur with a scar.

 

Anecdotal evidence suggests that it also helps to lighten skin, thus reducing the appearance of the scar or hyperpigmentation. In this case, making the seeds into a paste is the most effective way of getting their benefit.

 

You will need –

 

-Fenugreek seeds
-Warm water
-Something to grind up the seeds

 

Directions

 

How much fenugreek you’ll need depends entirely on the size of the scar. Start with a tablespoon or two, and if there is extra store in the fridge for up to three days.

Soak the seeds overnight in warm water, or until they are soft (even “slimy”) feeling. Drain and mash them up into a paste-a mortar and pestle works best for this.

 

If the mash is too thick, you can add just a smidge of warm water at a time until it is the proper consistency-thick but easily spreadable, not runny.

 

Rinse the area with warm water and pat dry. Apply enough to cover the scar and leave on for 30 minutes. Rinse off with warm water and pat dry.

I would suggest using your favorite lotion/moisturizer after this as it can be drying.

 

Reduce Scar Visibility Tip #4 – Fish Oil

 

Ah, fish oil. It’s one of those “it’ll cure whatever ails ya” remedies. Rich in our favorite fatty acids, fish oil taken in the diet and applied directly to scars can help reduce their appearance.

 

Some research has been done showing that they may even speed of the breakdown of fibroblasts, which are responsible for laying down all that extra collagen, even in scars as severe as keloids.

 

If you can take it as a dietary supplement, I always say go for it. It’s worth trying topically as well. Fibroblasts aside, it will moisturize the scar well and moisturizing means a better environment for healing to take place.

 

You will need…

 

-A high quality fish oil

 

Directions

 

Apply fish oil directly to the scar and/or take the appropriate dosage for a dietary supplement.

 

Reduce Scar Visibility Tip #5 – Lemon Juice

 

This one should come as no surprise. Lemon juice, in addition to having other benefits, is known to lighten skin. This is because it is thought to interrupt melanogenesis-basically the process in which melanin, the pigment that darkens skin, is formed.

 

It is also thought to reduce or break down the existing melanin in the skin as well. Be careful after applying lemon juice as it can make you a bit more sensitive to the sun for a bit after using it.

 

You will need…

 

-1 fresh lemon

 

Directions

 

Juice the lemon. Rinse the affected area and then apply directly. Do this up to twice a day as needed and be patient, as it isn’t instantaneous. Keep the leftover juice in the fridge for later use.

 

Reduce Scar Visibility Tip #6 – Sunscreen or Cover Up

 

This is more of a (very helpful) preventative rather than a remedy. When the sun- chiefly its ultraviolet rays-hits your skin, it damages it. Your body, well-equipped as always, rushes to defend and protect your sensitive skin by depositing melanin, a darker pigment that will give more protection against the harmful rays.

 

The skin of your scar is sensitive and will darken easily, so cover up or use sunscreen, and you can help prevent any burns or unwanted melanin making it more visible. Tanning or getting sunburned will ultimately not help your cause!

 

You will need…

 

-Sunscreen that is at least SPF 30

 

Directions

 

Apply sunscreen to the scar before exposing it to sunlight or keep it covered.

 

And above all else…

 

Be patient. There is no current natural remedy or medical technology that can guarantee the complete removal of a scar. Although some may certainly helpful, our bodies are pretty incredible of doing the job.

 

Trust in your body – it knows what it’s doing! When it comes to badly damaged or non-regenerable tissues, they are replaced by the laying down of connective tissue (think collagen!) This is a process called replacement-also known as scarring.

 

Regeneration is a type of healing in which new growth can completely bring back at least portions of damaged tissue to its normal state. Most of the time these two occur in tandem during the healing process.

 

Over the course of 2 sometimes up to 3 years the scar will continue to heal, replacing and regenerating. So don’t panic about a scar. Get a little help from some good remedies, trust your body and time, be patient, and all will heal.

5 Myths and Facts About Your Sagging Face

Let’s face it: Sagging’s only cute if you’re a Shar-Pei dog.

 

For most of us, our jangly jowls and hanging cheeks are a source of chagrin as we age. Here, five myths and facts about sagging face, plus ways to stop the droop:

 

Sagging Face Myth #1 – Running causes your face to sag

 

FALSE. Sagging skin is due to two age-related reasons: loss of collagen, which gives skin its elasticity, and loss of facial fat, the absence of which causes skin to droop.

 

While your whole body bounces up and down while you’re jogging, it is highly unlikely that you’re jostling around enough to damage collagen, points out Las Vegas-based plastic surgeon Michael Edwards, MD, president of the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery.

 

A more likely cause? Long hours exercising outdoors equals more UV exposure, which over time breaks collagen down. Make sure you slather up with plenty of sunscreen before venturing outside, even in colder weather.

 

Sagging Face Myth #2 – Sleeping on your stomach causes sagging

 

FALSE. Your sleep position won’t actually cause sagging, but it can lead to sleep wrinkles: those creases and fine lines you see each AM in your bathroom mirror. They’re caused by your pillow tugging at delicate facial skin as you sleep.

 

When you’re younger, it is not an issue, as fresh, elastic skin bounces back easily, but as you age, skin becomes less resilient and can settle into these lines. Your best way to avoid this is to sleep on your back, says Dr. Edwards.

 

Some studies have found sleepers switch positions 11 times a night on average. But if you’re a die-hard tummy sleeper or flip flop through the night. you can try the Juverest, a so-called sleep wrinkle pillow.

 

This specially formulated pillow has a head cradle to encourage back sleep and graded steps to minimize contact between your face and the pillow if you do roll over onto your side.

 

Sagging Face Myth #3 – You can do facial exercises to reduce skin sagging

 

TRUE! But with a catch. They increase the size of facial muscles, which, while theoretically taking away some of the slacking skin, also causes expression lines, points out Dr. Edwards.

 

So while a few workout moves might help relieve basset hound-like eyes, they’ll probably also worsen crow’s feet. If you’re not opposed to getting some help from a dermatologist or plastic surgeon, you may get better results from Botox.

 

Sagging Face Myth #4 – Weight loss causes skin sagging  

 

TRUE. When you gain weight, the skin on your face stretches to go along with your extra padding, just like it does everywhere else. But if you’ve finally lost it, you may notice that you’re sporting under eye bags and a slack jaw.

 

As you age and your skin loses elasticity, when you stretch it out it won’t bounce back the same way it did when you were younger, explains Dr. Edwards. But don’t despair: products like Retin-A can help, as can injectable fillers such as Voluma.

 

Sagging Face Myth #5 – There are products that may help fight sagging skin

 

TRUE. You can slow down the sag from the outside in: Try topical products like over-the-counter retinols or prescription retinoids, which boost collagen production, and vitamin C serums, which help restore elasticity, advises Dr. Edwards.

 

In one study, a daily supplement of pycnogenol, a French pine bark extract, increased skin elasticity and hydration and increased production of hyaluronic acid, a skin plumping ingredient, by 44%, according to a 2012 German study (which was funded by the maker of the raw material used in the supplements).

When we think of beauty in Turkey, the first thing that comes to mind is the many salons where haircuts, hair removal, manicures and pedicures, and much more are available on a regular basis.

 

However, some of the best Turkish beauty tips actually lie in natural ingredients that people have used for centuries.

 

Turkish Beauty Tips #1 – Rose water

 

A true classic not only for Turkey but also many other countries, rose water is not only used for Turkish desserts but also for beauty. During the production of rose oil, 100% pure rose water is also made; people use it as a facial tonic, which cleans the skin like no other product out there.

 

But beware as the smell of rose water is intensely floral and can be too much for those who are sensitive to smells. However, for those that have a sensitive complexion, the gently cleansing forces of rose water are simply perfect.

 

Turkish Beauty Tips #2 – Lavender water

 

Just like roses, lavender also plays a huge role in Turkey’s beauty scene. Lavender soap may be our personal favorite, but lavender water is also quite popular and used for sensitive skin that is in need of renewal.

 

The water is applied to the face and neck and is also quite beneficial for the healing of cuts and burns. A truly relaxing scent, lavender water can also be sprayed into cribs as a natural way to calm babies down and allow them to sleep more peacefully.

 

Turkish Beauty Tips #3 – Turkish bath

 

No list of Turkish beauty secrets would be complete without mentioning the Turkish bath, one of the most thorough cleansing experiences possible.

 

The Turkish bath takes place in a traditional marble hamam where, through steam and heat, the skin becomes very soft. Professional attendants then scrub the skin with a kese (bath glove) that works as a full body peeling.

 

After that, the entire body is covered in soap suds, massaged, and then washed. It’s also highly recommended to apply lotion to the whole body after a hamam treatment. The Turkish bath allows the skin to be completely renewed, and you’ll end up leaving the hamam with soft and very clean skin.

 

Turkish Beauty Tips #4 – Natural soaps

 

Speaking of soap suds, the soaps used at hamams are also quite special and are made from extra virgin olive oil and coconut oil, both of which are very nourishing for the skin and have a very distinct and fantastic smell.

 

Of course, Turkey’s natural soaps also come with many other ingredients such as lavender, sage, argan, chamomile, and rose. One of our favorites is also soap made from goat’s milk, a really creamy soap perfect for dry skin.

 

Turkish Beauty Tips #5 – Vinegar

 

Vinegar made by fermenting different ingredients such as rose, apple, or even strawberries offers a natural way to lighten skin blemishes. In Turkey, these beauty vinegars are also used to cure acne, as an ingredient for face masks, and for irritated male complexions due to shaving.

Summer is in the air which means that it is time to book that trip to the beach already to soak up the warmth of the sun and just enjoy the waters for a relaxing day with family or friends.

 

But for those with oily skin, summer is something that they are anxious about as their oily skin becomes oilier than ever hence they suffer from acne breakouts.

 

You’re probably tired of having to conceal those blemishes every time you step outside and that you’ve been using up plenty of blotting tissues just to remove that extra oil that your skin is producing. Although having oily skin means extra care, just look at the bright side because those with oily skin tend to age more slowly.

 

With that being said, there are still steps that you can take to provide protection for your oily skin this summer. If you want to make sure that your skin won’t break out in acne or pimples, these tips are worth trying out.

 

Summer Oily Skin Care Tip #1: Minimize makeup

 

One way to keep your oily skin free from acne breakouts is to minimize the amount of makeup that you are using. This will help prevent your pores from being clogged because of the excess oil that you’re producing. By wearing less makeup, you will allow your skin to breathe better for a healthier look.

 

Summer Oily Skin Care Tip #2: Wash less often

 

It’s easy to fall into the trap of washing your face too often during the summer because you want to refresh yourself. Unfortunately, too much washing can actually make your skin produce more oil which is what you are trying to avoid in the first place.

 

It is better to limit your washing to morning and at night before going to bed so that you won’t have to contend with oil and sweat at the same time.

 

Summer Oily Skin Care Tip #3: Avoid touching your face often

 

Our hands are constantly touching various things so you don’t really have any idea on what you are transferring to your face whenever you touch it. This also means avoiding popping the pimples on your skin as it can spread the bacteria further.

 

Also, make sure that you tie your hair back as the oil coming from your scalp can travel to your hair and add more to the oils that are produced on your face.

 

Summer Oily Skin Care Tip #4: Choose lighter skin care products

 

You’ve probably used heavy creams during the winter to avoid your skin from being dry but now that the temperature has risen already, it is time to switch to something lighter that your skin can easily absorb. Sticking to the heavy stuff can actually make your skin appear greasy which is the last thing you will want this summer.

 

Summer Oily Skin Care Tip #5: Don’t forget your toner

 

Come the summer, it is important that you do not forget to use toner on a daily basis. Wipe the toner on areas of your skin that are excessively oily such as on your forehead and your nose.

 

The toner has astringent properties that can actually soothe and cool the skin at the same time. It will also help shrink the pores of your skin so that the amount of oil produced will be reduced.

 

Summer Oily Skin Care Tip #6: Primer can be your friend

 

If you cannot avoid wearing makeup during summer, don’t forget to apply a primer first. This will help keep your makeup in place and can even control the oil on your skin too. Go for the mattifying primer to get the best results.

 

These are just a few tips that you should keep in mind when it comes to dealing with your oily skin come the summer. You will find that your oily skin will be more manageable once you practice the steps above.
