Scars

Scars are the results of damage to the skin. When the skin is severely damaged, the body will produce connective tissue to repair the wound. This newly formed connective tissue is different from the normal tissue of the skin and eventually forms a scar.

If only the top layer of the skin is damaged, no scarring will occur. Scars usually cause few symptoms except that they can be cosmetically distracting. With proper care, however, they are less noticeable.

Scars can occur in a variety of ways. For example, due to acne, an accident or surgery. There are numerous ways scars can be formed, which is why it is important to take good care of them. Fortunately, there are special products that provide additional support for the skin. In this article, we will take a closer look at caring for this skin type and show you what products are available for it.

But what are scars?

Scars occur when damage in the skin is so severe that connective tissue is created to repair the wound. This connective tissue differs from normal skin tissue and forms the scar. If only the top layer of skin is damaged, no scarring will occur. Scars usually cause few symptoms except that they can be cosmetically distracting. With proper care, however, they are less noticeable.

Don'ts with scars

This skin type is very sensitive, so caution is advised. In fact, the sun can severely burn this new, pigmentless skin, so going outside unprotected is not recommended.

In addition, it is important not to wait too long to take proper care of the area where the scars are visible. The sooner you start this, the nicer the skin will heal. During the healing process, it is crucial not to scratch away scabs, as this interferes with the healing process.

Proper care

Proper care always begins with thorough cleansing. Scarred skin can be fragile, so it is important to clean the skin in a gentle manner. The hannah Cleansing Milk is suitable for this purpose. This pH skin-neutral cleanser preserves the skin's natural protective layer without causing dehydration.

What is important for every skin type also applies to this particular skin type: use a moisturizer. This will keep the skin supple, and massaging the cream can help the scar fade. Be sure to choose a cream without irritating ingredients. The hannah Remodeling Cream is specially designed for use with scars, burns, rosacea and eczema. The high percentage of natural vitamin E ensures repair of damaged skin cells.

Finally, it is crucial to properly protect scarred skin from the sun with at least factor 30. 

Thus, it is important to be careful with scarred skin. Make sure to keep the skin well hydrated and protect it from harmful sun rays. Although blemishes are never pleasant, they can be made less visible by applying a gentle buffing method to the skin and using concealing creams.
