If you have scars or are recovering from surgery, it’s important to care for your skin as you heal. Scars as they heal benefit from a good moisturiser. Here are some reasons why you need to keep vigilant when it comes to skincare for healing skin, thanks to ScarsandSpots:

Well Moisturised Skin Heals Better

Keep in mind that dry skin is highly susceptible to scarring. Your skin needs moisture for the healing process – and when any kind of damage to the skin occurs, you lose moisture much more rapidly. Simply put, proper moisturising of the skin affects every part of the healing process.

Moisture Improves Scar Healing

The top layer of skin conserves water and serves as an infection barrier. Skin injury severely disrupts this function. The next wound healing phase is the formation of the new top skin layer (epidermis) and replenishing water content of the skin is essential during this phase.

Ingredients like aloe, essential fatty acids, and liquorice extract help to restore the lipid biolayer and provides moisture to the developing epidermis. The resulting increased moisture encourages faster and improved healing.

Moisturizing Doesn’t Fade Scars

While moisturizing scars helps them heal properly, sometimes resulting in a smaller, diminished scar, it does not fade the colour of the scar. Vitamin C is the most effective way to fade the hyperpigmentation and broad spectrum UVA and UVB sunscreen is the best method to protecting scars from darkening.
