It also helps in lowering down the inflammation of wounds and produce new and healthy cells. You can either grow this in your backyard or buy the extract, ointment form, in stores. Use it daily to smoothen and soften your skin.

Cocoa Butter

This is a natural moisturizer and skin-softening product and lightens the evident scars. It’s best to use pure cocoa butter or as an alternative, products that have cocoa butter in it. In a circular motion, apply the cocoa butter to the scar and wash with warm water. Do this twice a day for best results.

Essential Oil

Olive and Coconut oil extracts are two of the most effective essential oils that help get rid of the scars. Although the virgin olive oil is effective, extra virgin olive oil gives better results as it has more acidity and is rich with Vitamins E and K. Coconut oil, with all its health benefits, serves as an organic moisturizer and help cell regrowth. Add lavender oil drops to either coconut and olive oil to quickly help heal the skin.
