How to Remove Scars with a Fade Away Cream & Exfoliation

Posted by Porcelana Staff on

Scars tell the stories of our lives...our adventures, our mishaps, our struggles, and our pains. But sometimes old scars can reveal too much, invoke probing questions, and damage your self-esteem. Scars commonly form from injuries, acne, and sun damage, and there are several different types of scars that form on the skin.

Many people have accepted the fact that they have to live with their scars. Fortunately, there are easy, gentle ways to fade them away, such as fade away creams and exfoliation methods that will help reveal the beautiful skin underneath. These are some of the best practices for fading old scars and preventing new ones from becoming more noticeable.

Exfoliate Regularly

It’s absolutely essential that people with scars exfoliate their skin to remove dead skin cells and promote the healthy regrowth of skin. Exfoliate your scars every three days to reveals new skin cells underneath the scarred layers. If scars are on your face, use an exfoliating scrub with a soft cloth instead of a loofah. Exfoliation of any scars should obviously start only after scar has had the opportunity to completely heal.

Moisturize with Porcelana Fade Cream

One of the most important parts of scar treatment is a good fade away cream. Porcelana Day Skin Lightening Cream contains hydroquinone to fade scar discolorations and make them less noticeable. It also contains sunscreen to prevent your scars from darkening when exposed to sunlight.

Massage with Vitamin E

Vitamin E is great for scars because it soothes naturally and is easily absorbed into the skin. Massage vitamin E oil into your scars and rub it in until completely absorbed. This is a great habit to get into two or three times per day.

Home Remedies

If you like to approach health and wellness with an all-natural approach, there are quite a few home remedies that have been used for scar treatment. These are a few of the most popular home remedies:

  • Honey – dab directly on scars at night
  • Lemon – Squirt juice onto a cotton ball
  • Onion extract – typically found in gel form to rub into scars
  • Rosehip oil – massage into scar twice daily
  • Aloe Vera – rub into the scar and leave for 30 minutes before washing

Consider Glycolic Peels

Glycolic peels are sometimes used to treat stubborn, deep scars and are administered by a dermatologist. After applying the peel, the top layer of the skin is removed. The procedure can also be used to treat dark spots, sagging, wrinkles, and acne. Alpha hydroxyl acid peels are relatively mild; however, trichloroacetic acid is sometimes used on people with darker skin tones.

Consider Dermabrasion

Another procedure that is done to fade scars is dermabrasion, which typically uses a wire brush or rough edged wheel to remove the top layer of skin. Although the procedure is relatively painless, some people experience swelling and reddening of the skin afterwards. A variation of this procedure is called dermaplaning, in which a razor-like instrument is used to skim off the skin’s surface layer.

Use Sunscreen

Regardless of which scar treatment you choose, it’s always important to wear sunscreen...even during cold weather months. The sun’s rays make scars darker and may reduce the effectiveness of the fade treatment you’re pursuing. If you have oily skin and using a fade away cream treatment during the day, choose a milky, essence based sunscreen to apply before. It’s especially important to put sunscreen on your face or use beauty products that contain sunscreen because facial skin is particularly thin and vulnerable to sun damage.

How to Remove Scars with a Fade Away Cream

Knowing how to remove scars with a fade away cream properly is key to getting the smooth, even-toned look that you crave. The most effective approach to removing scars is well-rounded and holistic with the use of sunscreens, hydroquinone-infused fade screams and effective treatment such as glycolic peels.
