I have severe acne scarring from CSP, and I noticed an immediate and drastic improvement just from following the diet strictly/ doing mono island/mono meals and drinking lots of water. Also I have just been using lukewarm water to rinse my face every once in a while. Seriously, I might have had a peel or something for how good the results are. And that is after less than a month. I fully anticipate that my scars will naturally become less and less noticeable in time. I might consider going for a laser treatment, but I probably can't afford it, and I don't really know if it's safe.
Best of luck :)
have you healed acne scars then?
i've heard coconut oil helps! :)
thanks Tony. i have been considering..i will try the food first and then dermatologist consultation.
Aislinn is your diet low fat high carb and also do you use a facial brush?
thanks for your reply lennelle. ive tried coconut oil but the scar is still there
Coconut oil definitely helps! Before I went raw I took Accutane for my horrible acne like fellow 8/10/10er Megan Elizabeth of (easytoberaw). But afterwards I had the worst scarring, luckily mostly discoloration, not very deep scars. I have been using coconut oil to moisturize for about 5 months and my skin is almost completely back to how it looked before the acne! It also has saved me from having horribly itchy dry skin in the winter! Coconut oil has been a life saver. Also, I've started adding a few drops a tea tree oil to bit before I rub it on my face and it's really nice. Just after adding that for a week my skin looks so much brighter!
I have some slightly indented scars on my cheeks.. they're not super deep or pigmented. Do you think that coconut oil would help with healing them? Also, what kind of coconut oil did you use to heal your scars?
hows your scars doing know kaitlyn have you healed them?
sarah have you cured your scars?
Yes I am LFRV. I haven't used a facial brush but I would if I had one.. I have heard many good things about them.
I recommend reading this, if you haven't already :)
My scars are still clearly visible, but they have faded considerably in a short amount of time... I am being patient and expect to see good results. Having resigned myself to being badly scarred for life, any improvement is awesome.. I am not expecting immediate perfection, as there is a lot of damage that will take time to disappear if it is going to. Even if the scars don't ever fade completely, I feel I am/will still be far better off!
I think you have made a wise decision to try the food first :) Best of luck on your healing journey, Allie!
i know. hopefully if we have enough good calories the skin will heal
hey allie, over the years I have read from numerous people about very old and deep scars going away completely after a few years of 100% 811rv and from some people that had them lighten up considerably but still remain. Of course the beauty that comes from superior health will naturally permeate your whole being so any scars become more like a beauty mark anyway. :)
