While some people consider their scars to be beautiful and marks of pride, many people want them to go away. Since scars can affect your appearance, they can make you self-conscious and underconfident.

If you want to get rid of an old scar, you need to understand what type of scar it is and what you’re trying to get rid of. A scar is formed as part of the natural healing process after an injury. When the second layer of skin, the dermis— is damaged, the body’s initial response is formation of collagen fibers to repair the damage, and that results in a scar.

There’s no known way to make scars totally disappear till date, but many remedies will help it become lighter over time on their own.
Advocates of natural healing believe that there are remedies that can accelerate the lightening process and make a scar less noticeable.
