As you move through life, it is incredibly important to feel comfortable and confident in your own skin, but you can’t always plan for what life throws your way. Your body tells the stories of your past, and sometimes how you feel about yourself is directly related to how you view your injuries or experiences — especially if they have resulted in scarring.

Since scars can be quite noticeable, they can make you feel self-conscious about your appearance. If you would like to minimize the appearance of your scars, Dr. Nathan Brought and the team at Southern Plastic and Reconstructive Surgical Institute want to assist you.


Scar tissue is a natural part of the healing process when you’re injured or undergo some types of surgeries. However, it is more fibrous than your normal skin, which can make it very visible. Understanding the scars you have and how they form helps with applying the correct remedy for healing. The following list identifies some of the most common types of scarring that occur after even some of the simplest injuries:

• Keloid Scarring

These scars form from intrusive healing processes and can extend beyond the injury site. Depending on the size of the scar and its location, this type can prohibit movement and appear after extensive irritation to the skin.

• Contracture Scars

This type of scarring often forms after a severe burn or trauma, and can cause the skin to tighten. Similar to other forms of scarring, contracture scars can prohibit movement depending on their location.

• Hypertrophic Scars

These scars are similar to keloid scars. They stay within the site of the injury and can rise above the skin, causing discomfort.

• Acne Scars

This common type of scarring can occur from severe acne that presents itself at any age. Even with effective acne treatment, acne scars can last a lifetime in the forms of pits or deep pores on the skin.

• Atrophic Scars

These are pit-like appearances in the skin. Atrophic scars come about when fat or layers of tissue are lost.

• Stretch Marks

Stretch marks occur when the skin stretches too quickly. This is a common form of scarring for women going through pregnancy.

While scars can be difficult to identify and predict, natural remedies do exist to help in scar removal.


It is possible to assist in your body’s healing of scars or unwanted marks. Attending to scars does not have to be extraneous or expensive if you don’t wish it to be. If you are trying to heal scars naturally without surgery, take a look at these inexpensive remedies you can perform from the comfort of your own home:

1. Aloe Vera

You can either pull back the dark green skin layer of an aloe leaf or purchase a topical gel. Gently apply the clear gel to scars twice a day in a soft, circular motion. Rinse off the gel after about 30 minutes with cool water. Repeat this practice once in the morning and once in the evening for scar improvement.

2. Vitamin E

Pour a vitamin E capsule over a scar and massage for several minutes. Wash off the oil and repeat this process multiple times a day.

3. Apple Cider Vinegar

Make a solution by combining a few tablespoons of distilled water with one tablespoon of apple cider vinegar. Dip a cotton ball into the solution and place it on top of your scar. Cover the cotton ball with a Band-Aid or piece of medical tape to keep it from moving. Wash off the solution after a few minutes, and be sure to moisturize to replenish the skin.

4. Lavender Essential Oil

Place three drops of lavender essential oil into about three tablespoons of extra-virgin olive oil. Massage this mixture on the scar for five minutes. Leave the oil in place for thirty minutes and rinse.

5. Honey

Spread honey on the scar and cover with a Band-Aid overnight. Wash off of the scar in the morning and repeat nightly.

6. Coconut Oil

Heat the coconut oil slightly so it melts. Massage the scar with oil for 10 minutes and rinse.

7. Lemon/Lime Juice

Place lemon or lime juice on the scar with a cloth. Let this sit for a few minutes on the skin before washing it off. The acidic qualities of the juice help remove dead skin cells along the scar and can lessen the redness or appearance of scars.

8. Drinking Water

While this is not a topical cream, drinking plenty of water promotes hydrated and healthy skin. Be sure you are drinking plenty of water each day to assist these home remedies in the healing of your scars.
