welcome to health care magic
try these one:
1.Try accelerating the fading of these scars with the use of coconut water applied to these scars with the use of a clean cotton ball. Do this every day.Apply this paste to the scars with the use of a clean cotton ball as well, and do this daily.
2.Lemon juice has whitening and healing properties that can also be useful for treating chicken pox scars and minimizing them.
3.Benefits of vitamin E for scars and skin has always been known to be good. Applying this vitamin to the scars you get from chicken pox can also help diminish them.
4.Another natural scar remover or fader is honey. Apply natural honey to the spots where the scabs fell off and do this daily.
5.Aloe vera is also well known for its healing properties. Use aloe vera on your healing scars daily. 6.Use fresh aloe vera extract for better results. You can also use aloe vera ointments and lotions.
7.Eat vitamin-K-enriched foods for better healing and to reduce the appearance of these scars. Foods that have this vitamin include spinach, tomatoes, broccoli, liver, dairy products, and cabbage. Lean meats and even turnips are also rich in vitamin K.
Drink lots of water. Keeping yourself hydrated will help keep your skin elastic and will also help with the healing process.
Cocoa butter also has properties that promote healing and scar reduction. Use this on your scars as well.
Tea tree oil can also be used to help fade scars that are caused by chicken pox.
