And since we love to make life easier for you beauties, we’ve done all the hard work, gathering a few of your most loved scar-treating products. Here’s what you had to say about them…
A'kin Pure Radiance Rosehip Oil
“I have a scar from 4 stitches just near my collarbone and have been putting this wonderful oil on it twice daily for the last 8 weeks. My skin has healed and the scar is barely noticeable! Highly recommend.” – flaveth
"I think I have tried every brand of rosehip oil available, but this one is definitely one of the better ones. It absorbs easily into the skin and for me has been really effective at fading scarring and balancing my skin pigmentation. It really is a great product." – Beckky
Innoxa Skin Tissue Oil
“I have a nasty 3-inch long scar on my shin which happened when I was careless with the razor. It was quite a deep and long cut… After a few weeks of use, my scar hasn’t completely faded –– but the white scarred tissue that is typical of scarred tissue is almost completely gone. The only telltale sign of a scar on my skin is that the skin texture is a little bit uneven, as the scarred area has that characteristic "smoothness" compared to the rest of my skin but this improvement is more than I can ask.” - Stensen
“I used this for my acne scars and random stretch marks on the belly after losing some weight…It helped my stretch marks after 2-3 weeks of using and also scars from scabs and cuts.” – Iconic
Protec Scar Cream ($13.95, keysun.com.au)
“It does take a few months to work, but the results are excellent. I had terrible scars on my face from acne and I used this twice a day for about 2 months and I cannot even see where they were nowadays.” - Taloyahjade
