An Insight on Scars and Two Natural Herbs that Reduce Them from Inside Out


What are scars?

Whenever you experience a topical injury, a burn, an open wound, acne or any skin ailment, it results in the skin getting somewhat damaged, scarred or blemished. Now, in order to make up for the damage, your body gets into a self-repair mode. It tends to form new collagen fibres, thus allowing the growth of new tissues in a crisscross pattern on the affected area.

In the process, the skin that had been wounded or bruised, gradually gets replaced with new skin. In fact, when you finally see a scar being formed, it implies that the wound has almost completely healed. It is believed that the sooner the wound heals, the less prominent the scar is going to be!

New skin - as good as new? not really!

This new skin, however, is a little different in terms of colour, texture and thickness when compared to the skin that surrounds it. This rather unpleasant mark or, in other words, scar, is not only embarrassing at times but something that continues to remind you of the incidence that that took place at the sight of injury for a long time to come. Scary? Well, that & rsquo;s a scar for you!

Plight of the unsightly scars
While scars tend to smoothen, soften and fade gradually over a period of time, or even sometimes months and years altogether, rarely do they ever go away completely. It is, therefore, quite unlikely for the skin to appear the same as it did before the scar. Nonetheless, there are several home remedies you can adopt in order to make the scar less visible and fade over time.
