Causes Of Scarring
Scars are a part of life. They are a record of childhood accidents or injuries, illnesses such as measles, chicken pox, acne and in some circumstances – surgery.
Visible scars can make us self conscious. Not matter their size most of us would prefer them to disappear
What Are Scars
Scar tissue is basically damaged skin. When skin is torn or damaged it renews itself but without the normal elements our undamaged skin contains. Melanin, sweat glands and hair follicles do not usually re-form in the damaged tissue. Elasticity is minimal and can make the skin formation in the scar area tight and at times itchy.
Scar tissue has a noticeable shiny appearance.
A common form of natural scarring are stretch marks

How To Reduce The Signs Of Scarring
Scar reducing creams and lotions are now widely available with more choice than ever before. They generally work by forcing the scar tissue cells to the skins surface, where they are removed by natural exfoliation – usually to leave new skin cells in their place
Natural based treatments are fast becoming the more popular and effective way to reduce scarring, they lack the harsh chemical based ingredients of pharmaceutical brands and generally do not cause the drying and itching so often caused by these sought of products.
