Reduce Scarring with Two Natural Remedies

22nd January, 2013 - Posted by Victoria Girard - 12 Comments

Improve the texture of your skin

Scarring can occur from a number of different afflictions including acne, chicken pox, injury, or surgery and can not only leave a lasting mark on your skin but can scar your self-esteem as well. You can safely reduce your scars without any risk and watch overtime as they slowly soften and become less noticeable.

Rosehip Seed Oil

Rosehip seed oil is one of the all-time greats when it comes to botanical oils. It has amazing anti-aging properties that not only reduce wrinkles but also help to significantly diminish scarring as well. A study was conducted on 141 subjects who had substantial scarring and/or very wrinkled skin. Each participant used a high concentration of rosehip seed oil (26%) added to a cream. The 123 individuals with scarring reported a visible reduction in scarring and greatly improved texture.

Rosehip seed oil is rich in antioxidants including vitamin E, essential fatty acids, vitamin A, and phyto sterols. Each of these properties has immense benefits for the skin and the combination is very impressive.

You can apply this oil directly onto the skin, mix it with your favorite moisturizer, or create your own potion by mixing it with other oils such as avocado, apricot, or argan oil. The older the scars the longer it will take to see results but you should start to see improvements after 3-4 weeks of regular use.  Mountain Rose Herbs is a great source for purchasing organic and authentic rosehip seed oil.

Red LED Light Therapy

Red light therapy has been proven to soften scarring as well as a whole host of other benefits. Red LEDs at about 660 nanometers improve skin health, stimulate collagen and elastin production, and boost cellular energy. It’s a safe alternative for greatly improving the appearance of scarring.

There are a number of systems that are approved for home use offering great benefits in your own home. They are so easy to use and yet produce shocking results. Again, it takes time and patience and the older your scars are the longer it will take to see a noticeable improvement but with patience you will begin to see them fade. Click here to learn about the best systems on the market.

You don’t have to glob on makeup in hopes of hiding your scarring, you can now arm yourself with the tools you need in order to break free of the binds that your scars have on you. Rosehip seed oil and red light therapy offer safe and natural alternatives that will help you greatly improve your skin.

These are great beauty tips. I have heard and already know about rosehip, but not much about the RED light therapy. It has a lot of benefits and actually looks safer than other beauty promoting methods. I’m going to recommend this to my friends. thanks for the share!

Even my grandmother attests to the beauty that is rosehips for treatment of unsightly blemishes and scars. As for the light treatment, that’s new to me, so I’m giving it a second round at reading. Thanks so much!

I can understand your concern with lasers Veronica. That’s the beauty of LED light therapy; it’s completely safe and non-invasive.
