Your Natural Resource for Scars

Can you believe 2 months of 2010 is already gone?  We are closing in on the warmer temperatures faster than you know it but we are not there yet and this is the time to give your skin the extra attention it needs.

For the better part of this month, I've been sharing with you information on scars, scar treatment and scar prevention.  I even shared with you a photo of a scar of my own that I am working on diminishing.

Now let's examine a natural resource that is helpful at softening and smoothing scars.  It's not new but it's often overlooked......Cocoa Butter

Cocoa Butter does a number of things to help smooth scars. It:
  1. Moisturizes
  2. Helps even skin tone
  3. Helps break down scar tissue
Now, this advice is mostly to be applied for newer scars that formed from a fairly new injury. However, skin care products formulated with cocoa butter still make great moisturizers, provided there are no heavy laden chemicals in the product to disrupt the natural protection that Cocoa Butter provides.
