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




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




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




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




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




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




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.

Sagging skin? Turkey neck? These treatments may help tighten your loose skin.

Revealing Here the Treatments that may help to tighten your loose skin. Along with lines and wrinkles, sagging skin is one of the most common age-related cosmetic concerns among both men and women. Revealing here are some treatments that may help to tighten your loose skin.

Along with lines and wrinkles, sagging skin is one of the most common age-related cosmetic concerns among both men and women.


There are many reasons that skin ages and sags, but sun exposure contributes the most. Sagging skin can be particularly challenging to treat using topical products alone.


Fortunately, there are now a variety of different professional skin-tightening treatment options that don’t require a surgical procedure to help you achieve a smoother, tighter and more youthful look.


Ultrasound Technology


Ultrasound technology has long been used in the medical field, but is now widely used in nonsurgical skin tightening. Ultherapy is an FDA-cleared device that utilizes ultrasound energy to heat the skin to stimulate your own production of collagen, a key protein involved in maintaining firm, youthful skin.


Ultherapy has been shown to lift and tighten loose neck and chin skin, sometimes referred to as a “turkey neck,” as well as smooth away the lines and wrinkles in other areas of the face and upper chest.


Radiofrequency Technology


Radiofrequency waves also heat and tighten loose or sagging skin. This method works similarly to ultrasound technology, in that it uses heat to stimulate the production of important proteins within the skin.


There are many radiofrequency devices used to tighten the skin such as venus legacy, Velashape and Thermage. The device that is chosen depends on the area of the body and if there are areas of unwanted fat. For example, Velashape tightens the skin and smooths the appearance of cellulite, while Thermage only tightens the skin.


Both ultrasound and radiofrequency skin tightening may take several months to produce their full results, but you should be able to enjoy noticeably tighter skin for up to three years.


Which Is Right for You?


The best way to decide which nonsurgical skin-tightening option is best for you is to talk to an experienced doctor. Your schedule and pain tolerance are important factors to take into account.


Ultherapy, for example, requires one to two treatments spaced three months apart. Ultherapy uses intense heat, which many find uncomfortable, so most patients choose to take a medication to relax them during the procedure. Patients who like hot showers tend to tolerate Ultherapy better than those who hate the feeling of heat.


Venus Legacy uses less heat but requires one treatment every week for six to eight weeks. Although there are many similarities among these treatments, your unique skin type, condition and goals will factor into your dermatologist’s recommendation for the most effective approach for sagging skin. In some cases, two or more different treatment options can be combined to help you get the desired outcome.


No matter which option(s) you and your doctor choose, it can be helpful to pair the right topical ingredients with your skin-tightening treatments to enhance your results. Topical retinol and a properly formulated vitamin C serum boost collagen production and help these machines work even better.

Breakouts? Check out these 5 natural ingredients to combat oily skin.

We all know the importance of taking care of our skin, and that different skin types have different preferences and needs.


Of all skin types, oily can often be the most difficult to take care of – a constant shine, the urge to touch your face to remove the excess oil, and of course, dreaded spots!


However, not all hope is lost, as there are some amazing natural ingredients that can be found in many skincare products, or used alone, that can aid in combating that excess oil, and help keep your skin balance itself.


Combat Oily Skin Ingredient #1 – Seaweed


Seaweed is perfect for oily skin and has some well-renowned oil-balancing properties. On top of this, it can actually help to dry out existing blemishes, while keeping your skin moisturised at the same time with its high content of vitamins and minerals.


Seaweed exfoliators are great at penetrating deep into the skin, and buffing away that excess oil and dead skin cells that are left on the surface – revealing soft, healthy skin underneath.


For oily skin, seaweed is a well-loved natural ingredient, and because of this, it can be found in a variety of skincare products across the board.


Combat Oily Skin Ingredient #2 – Lemon Juice


Strangely enough, lemon juice works wonders for oily skin, and is a well-loved remedy for drying out acne. You can use lemon juice as a toner, mixed with water, or as a treatment and leave it on your skin for a few minutes before washing off. Lemon juice can also help to lightening hyper-pigmentation and spot scarring which is more common with oily skin.


Combat Oily Skin Ingredient #3 – Tea Tree Oil


A well-known, extremely popular remedy for oily skin is tea tree oil. Its strong scent is a signature, but don’t let it put you off; similar to lemon juice, it will to dry out existing blemishes and excess oils, and has skin lightening qualities to combat hyper-pigmentation.


‘Tea Tree oil is a good antibacterial for skin!’ says skin expert and beauty therapist Hayley Lockwood, who has experience working with Clarins Skincare and Benefit Cosmetics – and this also ultimately helps to prevent any blemishes from occurring.


Combat Oily Skin Ingredient #4 – Charcoal


Charcoal is renowned for being able to deeply penetrate pores and clear out blackheads and impurities. For this reason, a vast amount of skincare products on the market that contain charcoal are face masks and cleansers.


Charcoal face masks in particular are often referred to as ‘detox’ masks, and they are extremely popular due to their ability to pull blackheads from the skin.


Combat Oily Skin Ingredient #5 – Clay


Clay face masks are brilliant for oily skin sufferers as they act like a sponge on the skin, soaking up all excess oil and leaving the skin fresh, oil-free but also moisturised after use.


Keeping moisture in your skin, even if it’s oily, is important because the less moisture you have in your skin, the more oil you will produce.


Therefore, it’s important to opt for products that help to remove your excess oil, but don’t strip your skin of its natural moisture, and clay is an ingredient that does this well. Some clays can actually reduce the appearance of pores too.


While oily skin can be a pain to look after, it’s important to keep to a structured skincare routine.


‘A good, thorough, routine is far better than one miracle claiming ingredient or product,’ says Suzie Melbourne from Senses Skin Care Centre.


So after using an oil-reducing product such as the ones mentioned above, remember to follow up with a toner and a moisturiser.

The Benefits of Apple Cider Vinegar with the Mother Exposed

There seems to be this trend in the world of wellness, in which the substance you’re supposed to consume basically has the most unappealing appearance, taste, and even texture to it.


And, of course, this is as true for apple cider vinegar as it is for all the other health trends out there right now.


I can’t lie to you. Apple cider vinegar looks, and sometimes even tastes, kind of nasty.


Apple Cider Vinegar is not dangerous to drink in moderation, but it can cause damage to your stomach lining or the enamel on your teeth.


But the benefits of ACV simply cannot be disputed. Research has found Apple Cider Vinegar does help patients with diabetes control blood sugar levels. Therefore, you have to learn how to look past the ugliness of this magical beverage.


Here’s why apple cider vinegar tends to look like it possibly went bad about a year ago.


First, my friends, I must teach you about the mother.

Not your mother, and no, not my mother, either.


“Mother” in apple cider vinegar is basically a collection of bacteria that’s actually responsible for turning apple cider into ACV.


The mother in a bottle of the good stuff signifies how organic, wholesome, and pure the substance is.


If your apple cider vinegar doesn’t have the mother, leave it alone.

It looks nasty, but your ACV needs that foundation to work its magic on your body — it all starts with the mother.


Bragg, one of the top brands to sell apple cider vinegar, explains the purpose of the mother best:


The mother is the dark, cloudy substance in the ACV formed from naturally occurring pectin and apple residues — it appears as molecules of protein connected in strand-like chains.


The presence of the mother shows that the best part of the apple has not been destroyed. Vinegars containing the mother contain enzymes and minerals that other vinegars may not contain due to over-processing, filtration and overheating.


The mother in ACV is filled with probiotics, which is why apple cider vinegar aids with digestion and constipation.


The mother truly is the life of it all, from lowering blood sugar, to whitening your teeth, and even clearing your skin — mama (OK I know, it’s mother, but you get me) has you covered.


So really, the murkier and more unrefined the ACV looks, the more trustworthy it is.


According to Wellness Mama, clear and pasteurized vinegars typically do not contain the mother culture, and thus don’t carry the same benefits as apple cider vinegar.


Trust the ACV mother just as much as you trust your own mother.

It only has your best interest at heart.
