To help with Acne scars you need a bit of TLC
Helping to repair acne scars and let our skin recover requires a little bit of TLC. Including Manuka Oil into the equation may be the extra something special you’ve been looking for.
The Manuka tree is a multi-purpose, nurturing plant. Manuka has been called upon by generations of Maori healers to aid and assist a variety of ailments, from coughs and colds to burns. Manuka oil is full of anti-bacterial and anti-microbial properties. When used as part of a skincare routine, it can help to soothe and support wound healing, including help with acne scars.
It’s near impossible to avoid gaining a scar or two over your lifetime. While acne scars are difficult to remove completely, and generally won’t fade rapidly without medical intervention, it is possible to lessen their appearance with a consistent skin care regime.
Here are a number of easy ways to include Manuka Oil can help with acne scars.
- Firstly and most importantly, clean the site and bandage it correctly if it requires it. Looking after the area from the beginning will help to reduce scarring in the long run. Including a antibacterial ointment such as ManukaRx Natural Skin Ointment may be beneficial at this stage as it helps to reduce the spread and introduction of bacteria.
- Keeping the area moist during the healing process will help the skin heal. Dry skin is more prone to scarring and may cause itching as it recovers. For a natural moisturiser and massage balm, combine ten drops of ManukaRx 100% Pure Manuka Oil with 30mls of coconut oil and rub into the area surrounding the scar. Massage is a helpful tool for easing inflammation that may be associated with a wound, so take a few minutes to work on the tender area.
- No scar will ever truly disappear, but moisturising the skin regularly will help with general scarring, including that from acne scars. Dry skin can make acne scars appear more prominent, so having a good skin care regime will help to lessen the visible effects. Including ManukaRx in your daily routine alongside cleansing, exfoliating and drying may help to fade acne scars. Thanks to its anti-bacterial properties, it may also help to prevent recurring outbreaks. ManukaRx Dry Skin Healing Oil combines Manuka Oil with Lavender, Jojoba and Lemon Oil for a gentle skin salve that hydrates and soothes.
The ManukaRx range of natural skin care products includes acne products, natural deodorants and multi-tasking balms. 100% natural and created using 100% pure East Cape Manuka Oil, ManukaRx is available online, or in a variety of stockists throughout New Zealand.
