Removing a scar altogether is not always possible, but there are ways to diminish it and make it less noticeable. Scaring forms due to injury or damage to the skin surface; this trauma can occur in an accident or just be a leftover reminder of acne. There are several medical approaches for scarring, such as laser treatments or dermabrasion, but look to the kitchen and the spice cabinet to create a less invasive procedure.
Mix one tsp. ground nutmeg and one tsp. unprocessed honey in a small bowl.
Wash the affected area with a mild cleanser.
Dip your fingers into the honey mixture and spread lightly over the scarred area. Let the nutmeg/honey compound sit for up to 20 minutes, and then wash it off with warm water.
Rewash the area if necessary to remove the honey compound, and then apply a light moisturizing lotion that contains aloe to the scar.
Repeat this process twice a day, once in the morning and once at night, until the scar fades.
Do not use this recipe if you are allergic to honey. As an alternative, use milk to replace the honey. Discontinue use if the scar tissue bleeds, reddens or becomes infected.
