Healing Scars Naturally
Several people email and ask us how to get rid of scar tissue, stretch marks, etc. Much of your ability to not show scars depends on genetics, but there are some natural remedies that can visibly improve the appearance of scars and stretch marks over time. These include bentonite clay (topically) and carrot juice (orally). check out this poster for more:
Bentonite clay is a unique substance and an internal and external cleanser for very good reasons; it is primarily formed of an extremely flat crystal flake that carries a relatively strong negative ionic charge called Montmorillonite, which elevates your body’s PH and absorbs some of the hydrogens from your cells enabling them to fill that space with the oxygen you so dearly need.
Coconut oil’s ability to nourish and heal the skin and its wonderful moisturizing and healing powers have been known for generations. As a saturated fat consisting primarily of medium chain fatty acids (MCTs), it is not easily oxidized and does not cause harmful free radical damage like polyunsaturated vegetable oils.
Aloe Vera juice not only soothes inflamed skin it is a fantastic way to remove scars, boost the immune system and regenerate damaged tissue. Aloe Vera has acerbic qualities that ensures, with regular usage, that acne breakouts or scars would be easily prevented resulting in a softer skin, decreased swelling and invigorating new cell growth and thereby reduced acne scars which eventually fade over time.
Carrot juice is very rich in nutrients that help our skin such as potassium, which prevents skin dryness and reduces blemishes and scars and maintain our skin well-hydrated. It has anti-inflammatory property, and helps to revitalize and tone the skin. Drinking the juice regularly will keep your skin moisturized, smooth, soft and supple. It is also packed with antioxidants that prevent skin problems like eczema, dermatitis, wrinkles and even rashes.
Hazelnut oil can be used as a skin cream and/or lotion. This oil resists spoiling, allowing you to keep your homemade skin creams longer. Hazelnut oil is rich in vitamin E and essential fatty acids. Vitamin E may help reduce the appearance of scar tissue.
Vitamin E is an antioxidant and can help protect your body from sun damage, because of this, it’s added to many over-the-counter skin care preparations and it’s naturally found in foods like fruits and vegetables, and is an essential part of your everyday diet.
Vitamin C is an antioxidant which helps to reverse skin damage. You could use lemons on your skin since this is a strong form of Vitamin C, BUT this could result in drying out, so you need to do one in one form and the other in another form, meaning use vitamin E oil on your skin, but take vitamin C orally.
Asparagus and certain herbs renew your natural skin moisture and youthfulness.
