I scar very easily. Is there a way I
could prevent scarring or get rid of the scars I have?
The best way to prevent scarring is to
avoid getting hurt. But if you’re a klutz like me, sometimes that’s
way easier said than done! To help scars from cuts heal and fade
more quickly, keep them covered. That means treating them with an
antibiotic ointment like Neosporin and covering with a band-aid for
about a week. Keeping the area well moisturized can help, too.
One more thing? For scars that are
still healing, avoid exposing them to the sun’s harmful rays, which
can cause discoloration. Ugh!
Unfortunately, unless you go in for
expensive laser treatments, there is no guaranteed way to get rid of
old scars. Keeping your skin moisturized and avoiding sunburns and
tanning will help them become less noticeable.
