Many of us have scars on our skin. Particularly on the face region. Scarring is perfectly fine and it is not a justified reason to dominate your self-esteem. However, most of us do feel a little bit insecure about our scars and that’s completely normal but always remember that your scars only define your accidents or external wounds and not your whole self. Scaring is common and is caused due to many reasons which could be external and in some cases internal. Scaring can also be further classified on the basis of its type whether it is a blemish, dark spot or some sort of open pore-like scar.
What Are Scars?
Anything that resembles a mark on the body or facial skin that has been caused due to injuries to the skin tissue internally or externally are scars. Scars can also be an after-effect of a wound that has or hasn’t been healed and has left a trace behind onto the skin.
What Are The Most Common Scar Causing Factors?
A scar can be caused due to many reasons. Strangely sometimes even mosquito bites that are highly irritated or itchy leave behind a small spot and people with sensitive itchy skin are more prone to this. So, in short, there are millions of ways to get a scar but some of the most common reasons are listed below
The number 1 reason for scaring is acne. Bloody red pimples or sometimes even the tiny irritated pimples leave behind marks on acne prone skin such as face, back or chest region.
Acne scars can be blemishes that are generally dark brown to red spots that stay on the face even after the acne reduces or disappears. In case of severe acne some people even experience ice pick or pitted acne scars which look like massive craters on the skin and they’re usually more hard to be treated. These kinds of severe scars can only be treated by expensive laser treatments and derma rollers.
If you have had a minor or major accident in the past where your skin was a little affected, there are higher chances that’s your scaring will stay longer and will need more time and efforts from you.
A lot of times due to any application of external pressure on the skin we are left with internal injuries. The best example for this can be picking your face. A lot of people share a habit of picking filaments or whiteheads. Constantly doing this damages the particular skin spot and may lead to broken capillaries which will further lead to huge visibility of thread veins. This can’t be technically called as scaring however it does leave some sort of mark on the face even though the broken capillaries are inside the skin.
Acne scars such as pitted scars or “pores” are hard to treat with natural remedies or mild treatments. However, for some acne scars, there are small home remedies that you can do and try to see the effectiveness and continue if you’re seeing visible results.
- The best things you can do to fade your acne dark spots are just mixed a pinch of turmeric with 1/2 tsp tomato juice/ potato juice. Mix well and apply as a spot treatment only on the affected and darkened region and wash off after 30 minutes. Do this twice a day for 7 days for amazing results. Continue if you wish to enhance the results and fade the spots further. Always use fresh juices only or you can even store the juice in a glass bowl for not more than 2 days.
- For any scars caused due to accidents always visit a Fermat and see if there are any good choices available that fit in your pricing and convenience. Simultaneously you may even be constant with a scar fading gel or treatment available on the dispensary.
- To wear a sunscreen that’s cruelty-free and works well for both UVA and UVB rays. Sun damages the scars by darkening them and also by slowing your cell repair.
- Be constant with any home remedy that you choose to try. Be constant only if you see results in good 5-7 days.
- Prevent acne or anything that could cause scars. As the old saying goes “prevention is better than cure”.
