How You Can Heal A C-Section Scar - Naturally
There are so many reasons why people scar, but perhaps one of the most positive causes is having a c-section. The birth of your child is something you'll always remember no matter what, yet you don't need to keep the scar there in order to treasure that memory. Most women are only too glad to be given the opportunity to get rid of the evidence. So, how can you do it naturally?
Your body needs plenty of nutrients, minerals and vitamins in order to heal. A diet filled with fresh fruits and vegetables, as well as enough protein, healthy fats and whole foods will ensure your body is getting a mixture of the right nutrients. Think of food as fuel that your body needs to run and repair. If you're breastfeeding, your newborn will also appreciate the extra health benefits of a varied diet.
Your skin is also going to need some TLC in order to repair the skin cells and keep the scar moist. Henbane oil, which is found in Kelosoft natural scar cream, has been proven to fade scars of all types as well as stretch marks. Kelosoft is a safe and effective herbal ointment which fades new and old scars alike. Reddened scars become smoother and paler, while the hardened areas grow softer to help the marks gradually fade. Don't just leave your scar to its own devices - give it the treatment it deserves and enjoy the results.
Keep the incision clean to reduce the risk infection. Wash with warm, soapy water regularly but don't scrub too hard.
Don't overdo it!
It's easy to get complacent and back into routine, but for so many reasons, it's important to avoid strenuous activity and lifting anything that's more heavy than your baby. You should consult with a doctor before doing any exercise and usually you won't be able to resume until at least 6 weeks postpartum. It is best to stick to gentle walking and stretches that won't re-open your incision.
