Three Scar Reduction Home Remedies That Don't Work
Join 1000's of Authors at StreetArticles Today!

There are countless scar reduction home remedies out there and many of them can help you with your scarring. However, there are also many that do not work, and that's what this article is going to focus on so that you don't waste your time with ideas that aren't worth the time or effort. Here's that list:

Vitamin E

Vitamin E is usually either applied as a cream or is taken as a medicine. And it doesn't work. With clinical trials done, researchers actually found that the scars sometimes got worse, as the application of the cream actually hindered oxygen and light which is essential for successful acne scar treatment. As for taking vitamin E orally… don't bother. Some might swear by it, but experts agree that vitamin E just isn't as good as it's made out to be. Don't bother with it.

Honey

Researchers in my own country (New Zealand!) have used a type of honey called 'manuka honey' in clinical trials. Manuka honey is what all New Zealanders deem to be the best honey in the world, loaded with goodness (hey, I can be patriotic if I want to be!). It was proven that honey has miraculous results! For wounds, that is. The honey was very soothing and helped people in trials to quicken the speed in which the wound was healed. However, there was no results with honey for people with scarring. It's too thick, not penetrative enough, and isn't all that helpful for scaring. By all means, give it a go, but most likely all you'll end up with is a sticky face.

Onion

Oh yes, the humble onion, slapped all over scar, making your eyes water, and reducing the marks? Hmm, no. Again, another clinical trial which has not succeeded. People who applied petroleum gel (ugh, how nasty) did have noticeable results after two months, mainly because the gel was highly hydrating. The onion on the other hand, didn't do as well but people actually in the trial seemed to think that it had helped, while external people did not think so.

So there we are. Three scar reduction home remedies that don't really work all that well. Try them if you must and see if they work for you, however in most opinions, you'll just be wasting your time and effort. And you'll smell like honey or onion… if you have to try one, do the honey as at least then your eyes won't melt and fall out!

Despite all the negativity that I just wrote about, there are some scar solutions that do actually work, cheap, home based and proven. Take a look for some good scar reduction home remedies.
