5 Tips to Prevent Scars

5 Tips to Prevent Scars

Whether it be from acne, injury, stretching, or sun damage, prevention is your best bet against scarring. Scarring occurs when the dermis layer of the skin is damaged, and the body has to form new collagen fibers to replace the damaged cells. That new collagen will form for several months, and that scar tissue could have a different color or even texture than the surrounding tissue. The way the skin is treated during this period could have a huge effect on how seamless the skin heals.  

 1. Look But Don’t Touch 

When breakouts occur, don’t pick, pop, or further irritate the skin! Picking at the skin only drags out the healing process by forcing dirt further into the already inflamed skin and increasing the likelihood of scarring. Instead dry out the pimple using an acne fighting Sulfur Spot Treatment. I know whiteheads can be tempting, but your skin will thank you in the long run! 

2. Keep Skin Moisturized 

Moisture is a must when it comes to healthy healing. When wounds and damaged skin dry out, they form scabs that leave behind scars. It is essential that the new top layer’s water content is replenished in order to increase moisture and encourage quick healing.  

 

While moisturizing can help scars heal properly, it doesn’t necessarily fade discoloration. It is important to incorporate ingredients that have fading abilities, such as Vitamin E, Vitamin C, Allicin (onion bulb), Allantoin etc. Our lightweight Scar Gel has those same scar-fading ingredients that promote healthy skin.  

*Be sure to cleanse in between reapplying moisturizer because cream build up can cause further irritation. 

3. Massage the scar area 

Apply Vitamin E oil to the affected area daily and gently massage. The formula of our Vitamin E Skin Oil 14,000 I.U. helps protect the skin’s fatty acids, fights against free radicals, hydrates, and helps reduce texture. Massaging the skin helps break down those stubborn collagen bonds that can cause texture elevation and can help minimize the visibility of the scar over time. 

4. Cover Up  

After properly cleansing and moisturizing, you’re going to need a little extra protection against those free radicals and the sun. Apply a sun protectant of at least 30 SPF, like our Scar Cream or Sun Protection Mineral Powder, to prevent any further discoloration or inflammation. 

5. Give It Time 

Scars are completely natural and a part of the body’s healing process. Most superficial wounds heal without permanent scaring. However, it is easier to prevent then repair. 

 

Be sure to follow these tips to assist your skin through the biologically beautiful process of healing!

DERMA E didn’t start out in the beauty aisle or the boardroom. Instead, we began in a small health food store in Southern California. Our first product was a jar of Vitamin E 12,000 I.U. Moisturizing Cream. People were amazed at the results it had on their skin and word caught on.
