What products would you recommend to get rid of scars, cuts, bruises etc?
I bought Bio-oil earlier this week so yet to see if it'll make a difference but I'd be interested to know any recommendations (or home-made tips) of any other products I can buy in the meantime. I know it's not an overnight thing and I wish I could apply some sort of magic cream!
There's no need to see a dr really. I can allay your fears. I've got bruises and scars from a sport I used to play and now I fear I've entirely ruined my skin so it's only recently I've been trying to take care of it.
Mizon Snail Recovery Gel Cream. I know it doesn't sound great but if you look it up you'll find good reviews. I buy it cheaper from Korea but you can get it from Amazon UK or have a look for Dr Organics snail stuff in Holland and Barrett.
I've recently had some minor cosmetic surgery on my face. The plastic surgeon said it's not the product (bio oil etc) but the massage of the scars that makes the difference. He said that most people use bio oil etc because they've heard of it, but you can use anything that's fragrance free / non irritating. I've been instructed to massage for 2 minutes twice a day for up to six months. HTH
For cuts I'd recommend paw paw ointment. DD used to scratch her face (we did use scratch mitts but we couldn't keep them on her 24/7) and a dab of it faded the scratch within a couple of hours. Works fantastically on nappy rash, spots, grazes etc too. My absolute wonder product
