Skin Scarring: How Rosehip Oil Helps To Reduce and Improve The Appearance Of Scars On Your Skin

Whenever your skin experiences trauma such as a cut, acne, tear, surgery, injury, and more… it will go through its natural healing processes, which can leave you with scars on your skin.

These scars form when the deep layers of your skin attempt to close the wound and protect you from infection and further harm. In more complex terms, new tissue growth occurs in the wound bed that is generated by your body producing more collagen, a naturally occurring protein in the body that is responsible for keeping your skin elastic and supple.

The appearance of these scars will be of varying, degrees from barely noticeable to quite extensive. Therefore it is important to minimize the formation of scars with the appropriate skincare. If however, they have already formed then there is the opportunity to reduce the appearance of the scar with the appropriate skincare.

The Different Types Of Scars

Scars come in two common forms; Hypertrophic Scars and Keloid Scars.

1. Hypertrophic Scars

These types of scars can occur from skin trauma, burns, or surgical incisions. They are very common scars, often occurring in people who have taut skin, and can appear as flat, slightly raised, scars. These types of scars respond very well to treatment.

2. Keloid Scars

Are similar, in that they occur after a skin injury, but usually form on earlobes, shoulders, cheeks, or the chest. These types of scars are raised and enlarged, often reddish in colour. How they differ is that they usually extend beyond the edges of the original scar and can become progressively more prominent. You potentially will never form this type of scar as it greatly depends on your genetic makeup. Essentially, some people will be more prone than others and it also depends on how deep the wound was, and the treatment applied to the area.

How Does Rose Hip Oil Help

Many scars can be prevented or minimized if treated early. That is before the wound has healed and while the body is still generating new skin in the wound bed. Essentially, the scar forms after the wound has completely healed over so it is best to get in and treat it early. However, if your scar has already formed then there are a few topical active ingredients to consider that may help reduce the appearance of your scar.

As you most likely already know protein, vitamin A, vitamin C, vitamin E, and zinc are great for the health and well-being of your body and you can gain those nutrients from a healthy diet. When it comes to preventing scars, they too are great for accelerating the healing process, however for your best chances of reducing the appearance of a scar, it is best to apply these active ingredients topically (directly to your skin.).

Josephina skin care products contain many active ingredients that can help reduce the appearance of scars as well as reduce the signs of aging. In particular, rosehip oil is a very potent naturally occurring ingredient containing essential fatty acids (or proteins), and vitamins A, C, and E (as mentioned above). These help to reduce the signs of aging, and reduce pigmentation while moisturizing the skin.

Rosehip oil is, therefore, the perfect ingredient you need in your skincare routine as it provides all the necessary ingredients to help repair your skin, prevent a scar from forming, and it has the additional benefit of promoting new skin growth and regeneration. It is ideal for recent scars and can even help with older scars to improve both the colour and texture of your skin.
