How To Make Scars Fade

Last year I fell on uneven concrete floor and injured pretty bad my left knee. It was an ugly and an almost to the bone deep wound. I knew it will take a while to heal (it took about two months to completely close) and even more time for me to get rid of that nasty scar. And it is taking. But I am counting with some real good allies to heal it properly: a scar gel (Mederma Advanced Scar Gel) and a scar patch (ScarWay Silicone Scar Sheets).

First I started using the gel alone and as soon as I found out about the silicone patches I started using it. And they were great to make my high and thick scar fade and get lighter as well. In the past months the nasty purple scar turn into a pinkish scar that day by day gets lighter. Now I am back to the gel. I think the patch is great to make it gets flatter and the gel helps a lot to kind of erase it, if you know what I mean.

There are many other products, even serums to use in recent or old scars. They tend to do their jobs pretty well. I don’t know if my scar is gonna fade entirely. I will only know in a few months. My dermatologist told me that those deep kind of scars take about a year and a half to actually fade and only then I will know. But so far I am really happy the way it is compared to how it was. Plus, I have to confess that I am kind of attached to it now. It is part of who I am and it was part of my awakening year, so…

By the way, you can find them in any Drugstore or at the Amazon.

Because Keeping The Skin Hydrated Is a Must

If there is one thing I have learned since I entered the menopause is that you must keep your skin hydrated. At all costs. Perhaps this is the most important step in your daily facial routine. For any woman, no matter her age. Because there is no way for your skin to look healthy and glowing without being properly hydrated. It will also help to prevent and/or keep the wrinkles at bay. Ish. Because hydration is one of the elements your skin needs to age well and kicking.

So, find out that great moisturizer that works wonders for you and use it. Every single day. Twice a day. With no excuse. How can you find the perfect moisturizer for yourself? You gotta try the options around till you find the right one for you. Because every single person is different and what works for me might not do the same for you. Simple as that. And there is no other way to find that out. Unfortunately.

For me, the best moisturizer that I ever came across is the Belif’s Aqua Bomb. Love this moisturizer. My skin feels hydrated and luminous all the way. It works wonders for me. And how about yours? Which one does the trick for you?

And don’t forget to drink lots of water. Because keep hydration from inside out is another must.
