Hello everyone, see i have a slight problem. I used 'proactive' on my face and it distroyed a very small part. Completely took off a layer of skin about 1 x 1 cm and well what i would love to know is, is there any way to heal my skin faster, or soo it doesnt scar? Thank you so much for any post in advance. :)
If you have burns, abrasions or other wounds, try the herb aloe vera to speed up the healing process. Aloe leaves contain a clear gel that is used as a topical ointment. It has the ability to penetrate into the deepest layers of the skin to promote skin and tissue regeneration. The green part of the leaf that surrounds the gel can be turned into a juice or dried and taken in capsules. For optimum benefit, apply aloe vera as a topical ointment to your burned or damaged skin.
You can also use echinacea. The immune-boosting herb echinacea was used by Native Americans more than four hundred years ago to treat wounds and infections. According to the Herb Research Foundation, echinacea's anti-inflammatory properties make it useful in external treatments of skin conditions such as eczema and psoriasis. Crush the leaves and rub them directly onto your skin, or purchase a topical cream containing echinacea. Echinacea can also be taken as a herbal tea or in capsule supplements.
As said by other people,you can use lavender. To treat skin abrasions first clean the affected area with warm water with 5 drops of lavender diluted in a bowl. Apply one neat drop of lavender, or tea tree and leave to heal.
ROSE-HIP OIL!!!!!!!! is the best thing for scars, especially on the face!! it is very hard to come by though... have a look carefully and thouroughly around your chemist! some do stock it!!! by far the best...
If it is bad I would suggest a combination of comfrey and aloe. Both are better used fresh, because it is the juice you want. Gently rub a dab of the comfrey juice on the area and allow it to absorb. Repeat with aloe. If you cant get fresh comfrey you can make a poultice with the dry herb by rehydrating it. Goddess bless :)
