Fade and remove scars

You can easily fade and remove scars. The more recent the scar, the easier it will disappear. Old scars can also fade and eventually disappear, although you must be patient for at least one year. We explain to you which creams, techniques and nutritional supplements you should use for this.

Aloe Vera

You should apply the Aloe Vera juice to the skin at least twice a day. It also mixes well with the oils and creams below.

Vitamin E capsules

Massage and peeling against scars

Do these massages in the evening at a pace of two to three evenings of massage and one evening of rest. These massages should not be done on open wounds. After the massage, rub the scar with Aloe Vera and one of the above creams or oils.

Loofah glove

Massage the scar every night before going to bed with a loofah glove. This massage can be quite vigorous, because the skin should turn pink to red. Hold this for about five minutes.
