How To Get Rid Of Scars

Scars aren’t very nice are they, and unfortunately sometimes you can’t get rid of them forever but there’s a lot you can do to help make them fade. If you had to get stitches, treat the area as soon as the stitches out and they could disappear forever, so be positive and try these tips.

1. Bio Oil

Known as the best ointment in the market for helping scars fade. Use once daily on new scars or twice daily on pre-existing scars. You can pick it up in Boots.


2. Massage the area

Manual Lymph Drainage aids lymphatic circulation and drainage around the injured area. Gentle, circular, draining motions within the scar itself or a firm stretch to the skin above and below the scar, first in a straight line and then in a circular motion, are two drainage techniques.

3. Stay hydrated 

This sounds like an obvious one but drinking 8 glasses of water a day has a positive effect on your skin.


4. Use SPF

The sun causes a discolouring effect to the scar so avoid being out in the intense sun and if you must, use a high SPF at all times. Wear SPF during the Winter also as you are still exposed to UV rays.
