How to Remove Shaving Scars

by Amanda Kondolojy

Scars, even small one from razor nicks, can be a nuisance. Scars from shaving are typically tiny red or pinkish lines that don't go away after the wound has had time to heal. However, these scars can be minimized and eventually removed by following a strict skin care regimen. Although no scar removal technique is definitive (everyone's skin is different) following these steps will give you a pretty good chance for getting rid of those pesky scars.

Items you will need

  • Lemon Juice
  • Aloe Vera
Step 1

Bathe the affected area in lemon juice. As soon as you wake up in the morning, head to the bathroom and gently bathe the scarred area in lemon juice. The lemon juice's acidity will help break up the scar tissue naturally and gradually lessen its appearance

Step 2

Apply Aloe vera to the scar tissue in the evening. Natural Aloe vera directly from the plant is best, but store-bought gels will work as well. Using Aloe vera will promote healthy skin growth, and help to balance the effects of the lemon juice.

Step 3

Repeat until scar is lessened or has been removed. Most natural remedies take time to work, so you shouldn't expect results overnight. However, if repeated daily, you can begin to see results after a few weeks.

Tips

  • If your scars are particularly bad or you don't feel that a natural treatment is for you, you can see your dermatologist to explore other options such as prescription medication or laser treatment.
