i believe in vitamin e
Have you ever heard that rubbing Vitamin E cream on a scar will help it fade? According to this NY Times article is doesn’t help at all and is actually an overrated remedy sometimes even making the scarring worse. But I am here to tell you that for me personally I totally believe in the power of Vitamin E! When I was a kid I had a bad accident involving a swing set pole. My grandpa was putting it together for me and I managed to run into one of the ends of one of the poles slicing my right cheek darn near off. I had to have surgery with stitches (inside and out) to put my little 3-year-old face back together again. And I had quite a scar. A deep red scar that went from my eye to my lip. But my parents were religious about keeping it slathered in Vitamin E cream all the time. For about a year all the pictures of me look like this:
And I am here to tell you that that nasty scar today looks pretty darn good! I don’t really notice it anymore because I have seen it my entire life but I would be willing to bet that most people, while they may notice it, would say it doesn’t jump right out at them. It is not red, it’s smooth and it is substantially smaller. Here I am today…..
Pretty good, no? So I am a big believer in Vitamin E cream! Do you have a natural remedy that people claim doesn’t work but you have personal proof that it does?
