Use almond oil to remove chickenpox scars?

Ad

Scars caused by chickenpox usually are unsightly dark-brown fibrous tissue formations in the outer layer of the skin. Most chickenpox scars fades away over time because of the regenerative properties of the skin and some chickenpox scars fade slowly. There are various home-remedies to increase the regenerative healing properties of the skin and one of the best home-remedy is the almond oil. Almond oil has been clinically proven to help in the reduction of scar tissues of the skin. Almond oil contains essential minerals, vitamins B, vitamin E, protein and healthy fats which nourishes the skin, smooths the scars and promotes even tone of the skin. Almond oil also has a potent sclerosant and emollient properties which greatly aids in reducing and smoothing scar tissues. In general, using almond oil is one of the best home-remedy in removing chickenpox cars because of its various skin healing properties.

Yes, it is natural for chickenpox to leave odd discolored scars. I even have a few scars myself from chickenpox when I was younger that still haven't faded completely and that was well over 15 years ago. Initially after getting chickenpox I tried many different scar removal ointments and found vitamin E oil worked the best. I never used it quite as much as I should have, but most of my scars healed completely and were gone within a couple years. The deeper more dark scars have nearly faded through the years but you can still see small remnants of them. For the most part, if you regularly use some kind of ointment you should see significant reduction of the scars within a year.
