Raise your hand if you have a scar on your body.
Could be it’s from childhood chicken pox, an unfortunate phase of cystic acne during puberty or simply walking into a tree….yes, this has happened to me before!
Whatever the reason behind your scar, the desire to get rid of it is there. After all, scars are only sexy in theory.
There is a big misconception that you can’t actually get rid of scars. To be clear, this isn’t necessarily true. Scars form when the deep, thick layer of skin (known as the dermis) is damaged. Your body will naturally begin to create more collagen fibers to help repair the damage and the resulting skin patch is your scar. The different texture and colour of your scar is what makes it more prominent.
There are so many ways you can help your skin repair scar damage and get back to its gloriously gorgeous original state, which is where today’s infographic comes in!
If you’re looking to say ‘See ya” to those scars then check out these Top 5 Ways to Remove Scars below!
