DIY: 7 ways to get rid of dark circles/ANY type of scar/Stretch Marks.


These 7 ways I am sharing, are the MOST EFFECTIVE ways that makes those ridiculous scars disappear, no matter what type they are (acne scars, tissue scars etc). Make sure you are NOT allergic to any of the ingredients I am going to mention.


1st Solution: (For dark circles and scars) You Need:
1/2 tsp Turmeric
1 tsp yogurt (at least 10% fat)
4-5 drops Lemon Juice
Directions:
You can find turmeric powder in any Asian/Indian stores. Mix the ingredients together in a small container and Apply it on the scar. Leave it on for as long as you can but at least more than 10 mins. It won't show results only in one go. Repeat the steps everyday until the scar is completely gone. Usually it takes around 2 weeks.

2nd Solution: (For Dark circles, scars and stretch marks) You Need:
Aloe Vera Gel
Directions: 
You can find this gel at any drugs stores/pharmacies. Take some gel (depends on the size of the scar) and rub it on the scar in Circular Motions until your skin absorbs it.

3rd Solution: (For scars and stretch marks) You Need:
1 tbsp Virgin Olive Oil
1/2 tsp turmeric powder/ gram flour
Directions:
Mix them well and apply it on the scar. Leave it as long as you can. You can also rub ONLY olive oil and leave it on the scar overnight. It will be more effective.

4th Solution: (For scars only) You Need:
A slice of lemon
Directions:
Just rub it on the scar in circular motions. Do not rinse it off. Leave it over night and rinse it in the morning. Or leave it as long as possible.

5th Solution: (For dark circles, scars and stretch marks) You Need:
Cocoa Butter
Directions:
You can find this at any drugstores/pharmacies. They are pretty cheap. For dark circles, just dab it on the skin under eyes. For scars and stretch marks, rub it in circular motions until they disappear. Usually takes 2 weeks.

6th Solution (For scars and stretch marks) You Need:
Bio-Oil
Directions: 
You can find these at any drugstores/pharmacies. Apply it as directed on the bottle. These are effective on very old scars.

7th Solution: (For Built up tissue scars, acne scars and stretch marks) You Need:
Silicone Scar sheets
OR
Cica care Gel Sheet
Directions:
These are a little pricey but VERY effective. Buy them from drugstores/pharmacies. Apply it as directed on the pack. These also work on those tissue scars which are built up from stitches or any wounds. Works excellent on stretch marks too.

I hope it works on you all. Take care.

Squeze a lemon to get the juice into one container, put sugar until its become a paste, scrub it to ur stretch mark, leave for 10 min n rinse,apply moisturizer.u may keep the remaining in your fridge, n repeat everyday b4 shower..u will see the result as early as 1 week.

  9. Hi Krishna, I stumbled upon this blog when I was looking for a solution for my panda eyes AKA dark circles. Very interesting, I'm going to try it. Btw, when you said scars here, does it apply to face scars only or for all kind of scars? I have old & new scars from mosquito bites on my legs, make me a bit uncomfortable to wear skirts & shorts. Applicable for this DIYs or not? Thanks!!

  10. You can do this on all types of scars and not only for the face :)

    2. Which would you suggest for keloid scars? They are red, painful, and raised.

      Delete
    3. I have keloid scaring. Nothing I've found helps short of steroid injections by my dermatologist. High moisture products help a little with the constant itchiness, though.

    4. I have been using Epiduo and I have every scar known to man from acne scars and it has taken so far about 6 weeks but my chest has cleared up immensely. I'm slowly starting my back now. My chest is about 45% clear of scars. Even the shallow scars with coloring are losing the color and are almost looking like they're filling in. My keloids on my back have almost smoothed out and it has only been about a week and a half.
      Epiduo does cause irritation and red skin and can make your skin blotchy but after your skin clears up it starts to stop itching and lose that blotchyness. When I get pimples on my face from my period and apply it, they disappear the next morning. It does take time. It took my face about 6 months to clear up and to lose most of the scarring but it was worth it. It looks like I'm wearing make up now everyday and I have a nice blush to my cheeks. I definitely recommend it. All you have to do is go to your Dr. and ask them to prescribe it to you. There's also a thing you can get to wear the Rx cream is only $35 and it lasts you about 3-5 months depending on how much you use at a time and how big the infected space it.

      It has actually become very popular since about 5 months ago and I have been using it since the beginning of January. Check it out. It's called Epiduo.

    3. I have tried cocoa butter with no results. Ive also used the Bio Oil and aloe Vera which i live by!!! Ive used them throughtout my pregnancies and dont have one stretchmark. They both provide good moisture, which is essential for your skin. Another part of stretchmarks is heredity..so if ur mom has them, u may just be destined as well. On a happier note, my mom does not, but my sister looks like she invented them!! Ya never know :)

  23. Im 14 years old and i have some stretch marks right under my hips, they aren't too noticeable but when the light hits them you can easily see them and gosh its so embarrassing! would cocoa butter still be the best thing for these stretch marks? also i have a huge terrible scar on my calf and knees, the knees are from a vverryy long time ago but the calf one was about a month or so ago. what would work more effective and efficiently?one last thing i have had no real problems with acne until last year of course i have only two acne scars though and i was wondering what would quickly and permanently make those suckers disappear?
    Thanks

    1. I would really recommend you cocoa butter mixed with shea butter if your stretch marks are very noticeable and for your scar just use pure cocoa butter and this should work.. you can use the turmeric paste for acne scars :)

  27. During my pregnancy I used pure cocoa butter religiously every day twice a day. Well I developed heinous stretch marks. I continued to use the cocoa butter despite this and here I am, 6 months later and they look as bright as the day they arrived. I'm going to have to disagree with its effectiveness!

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Sometimes you have to continueusing the cocoa butter because it doesn't show the results until 2-3 weeks

      Delete
    2. Cocoa butter was not effective for me either despite using it during pregnancy AND for several months post partum. NO one in my family has ever had them either. I was the first to be 'blessed'. So, unfortunately, you are not alone.

      Delete
    3. I agree. I used cocoa butter all through my pregnancy and postpartum. Still a hot mess. Only one in my family with them too.

      Delete
    4. I've had 3 babies in 5 years. And for the last 5 years, the ONLY lotions I've used for my entire body (except face) are pure cocoa butter, and cocoa with shea butter. I lotion 1-2x a day. I have HORRIBLE wide stretch marks on my hips from baby #1 and hundreds of smaller stretch marks on my stomach and thighs from all 3. Although they've since turned white as stretch marks naturally do, they're still very, very visable.

      Delete
    5. Cocoa butter will NOT get rid of stretch marks (actually, neither will aloe) STRETCH MARKS ARE PERMANENT! They may fade, but they are permanent - don't believe me ask your doctor - my doctor said she could make a fortune if she had the secret to get rid of them. Used pure cocoa butter from the time I was 6 wks pregnant and still use to to keep skin soft 3 yrs after. They don't go away. Sorry to be the bearer of bad news, but you can see from the string of comments above that I'm not alone.

      Delete
    6. Try Mederma. It helped my surgery scars fade, and is said to be good on stretch marks. I have a lot of stretch marks on my hips, but i haven't bothered with them. I'm just a tiger who got her stripes.

      Delete
    7. I have some stretch marks that I have had since puberty and I am now in my mid twenties. I too had no luck with coco butter. The only thing I have found decent success with is exfoliating the areas everyday with a GOOD body scrub and following up with bio-oil rubbed in circular motions. It hasn't gotten rid of mine, but has made a noticeable difference! Good luck ladies :)

      Delete
    8. Unfortunately, there is no treatment to get rid of stretch marks... there are a couple of things you can do reduce the appearance and soften the scar... exfoliate regularly then hydrate with a serum or aloe... get a professional chemical peel.

      Delete
    9. 2 babies in 2 years and now stretch marks. While pregnant i can't stand the smell of cocoa butter, so i stuck to my bath and body worls lotion which has vitamin E in it and stayed hydrated...and the biggest key to not getting those annoying things...gain weight gradually :) good luck! But i recommend pure vitamin E

    10. ...oops meant *2 babies in 2 years and NO stretch marks! :)

    11. I tried Mederma years after having my babies. It helped fade them. I'm sure if I had continued they would be gone, but I stopped since I ran out & don't mind my battle scars :)

    12. Stretch marks are permanent yes, but they can fade and with the right lotion the thin skin of the marks can actually build up.i tried everything that was sold in stores and nothing seemed to work no matter how many times and how long I used them. If these diy do not work, try the stretch mark cream from avon. I used it when my daughter was 9, so mine were pretty old. It helped so much. I highly recommend it. I'm going to try the aloe for my dark circles under my eyes though :)

    13. my friend used preparation h for her old stretch marks, for about a month or two every night. it worked wonders on her!! It didn't get rid of all of them, but it tightened her skin and made them look 100x's better AMD even made most of them go away.

      Delete
    14. I get a kick out of people who say stretch marks are permanent. I actually got rid of my stretch marks applying pure coconut oil daily to my skin and consuming 3-4 tablespoons internally. It took nearly a year but was totally worth the effort and persistence. They were over 20 years old and white.

  29. Well stretch marks are usually a hereditery issue. If people in your family get them you will too. Despite how much cocoa butter you used during pregnancy. I didnt use anything while pregnant and got a grand total of 2 of the tiniest/whitest stretch marks ever... Good luck, amd theres always mederma if you havent had luck the natural route

    2. I really hope nobody is buying this nonsense. I am a MLT, I study things in labs for physicians. These are all just speculations. There is no proof whatsoever to the effectiveness of any of these things listed. The sad truth is that stretch marks will NATURALLY fade for some people, eventually whether they waste their money on products, or not. And then there are the other type of people that will ALWAYS have darker spots/scars/tears(what a stretch mark actually is!) no matter what. It is all upto your genetics at a cellular level. Please, educate yourselves.

    3. You stated it's up to your genetics st a cellular level, us there any way to increase that? Do you know if Merderma works?

I also have a new scar on my chin from falling and getting stitches, since it's a new scar it is raised. What should I do about that?

  57. Okay Im in no ways trying to be mean or negative but I worked in an operating room with a very respected plastic surgeon and through my conversations with her throughout my work with her there we came across this topic of stretch marks. I asked her if there was anythingny could to get rid of stretch marks any type of cream such as bio oil or mederma or any home remedies. She told me quite bluntly she has had women coming into her office for years with the same question and she all you will do is waste time and money she told me " you might as well just write me out a check for a few thousand dollars" she told me they are scars and the creams might help eventually fade the lines but you will never be rid of the. Unless you have surgery to remove a lot of skin. You can help try to prevent stretch marks by applying lots of lotion but if y already have them you cannot get rid of them.

    1. Well... I went to a special type of therapy... where they'd inject a solution to the stretch marks, which would make them smaller (it caused the walls of the skin to come closer, hence make the stretch marks smaller)... so at least I can say that THIS works... I thought the same as you do since I talked to many dermatologists about this... but they do not know about all the power the nature has... there might be a way to get the damaged cells out of the body... after all, lots of money are being poured into this research... so why not try it? I certainly do not feel like giving up... I am 20, had stretch marks ever since I became a woman because it is hereditary and my mom had them... all my life I kept my weight down and it still did not help... I also asked similar question below... but all I am saying - this person is not trying to sell anything, just giving tips on how to help... and doctors do not know everything... I almost lost the ability to have children because of one doctor's stupidity... so - let's hope is all I am saying...

  58. This is very interesting... all dermatologists told me that it is impossible to really get rid of scars (stretch marks) since they are damaged cells in really deep layers of the skin... that I can only make them smaller, but never disappear... does this really work? And which of these possibilities are best for a] dark circles, b] stretch marks? Thanks a lot... I had gone through a lot of hell because of genetics (I am actually quite slim but I still got stretch marks on my breasts and butt)... I even had special solutions injected to make the stretch marks smaller... it hurt like hell... went to it about 20 times... it helped, but there are new scars etc. So, I'd really like to know if it is possible to do something about it...

  60. Turmeric is amazing for so many ailments as well as a preventative medicine. I had never heard of using it for stretch marks but this spice is so wonderful, I wouldn't be surprised. It is an anitinflammatory agent as well as a anti carcinogen.

  65. Best thing for expecting moms to prevent stretch marks, DURING pregnancy, only speaking from my experience with 3 pregnancies and no stretch marks, a cream called Mothers Friend. I got it at Walmart from the pharmacy but it's not a prescription. :)

    1. I used Mother's Friend during my pregnancies as well. By the time I was expecting the second time around, I had to ask the pharmacy to order it for me. I never got the first stretch mark from either pregnancy. It was suggested to me by a mother who had no stretch marks after having four children. Best advice ever! My mother and both of my sisters had stretch marks from their pregnancies, but they didn't use any products to try to prevent them. (Unfortunately, I gained weight about 4 years ago. Thank goodness I've lost most of the weight, but now I have stretch marks on my hips... uugghh. Wish I would have been paying attention and applied the Mother's Friend I used during my pregnancies)

  66. I'm 51 my dark circles which are not horrible are related to age, will cocoa butter work for that?

  67. I have used Made from Earth's Aloe & Jojoba Creme Therapy for about 8 wks after delivery/pregnancy. The stretch marks are less noticeable by both color and smoothing of the texture. It is a bit pricey, but I'm buying another bottle in hopes to continue the progress. It is better than regular mederma - and sometimes I have forgotten to apply it, but it still seems to be working.

  77. Nothing makes scars or dark spots or stretch marks "go away" or become removed sad to say. I'm a bio student and had a full years course on genetics and tissues although some products may reduce the appearance of them they will not fully disappear. With that said I have used some of the products mentioned and have seen results but stopped using it due to my busy life and now i am back to square one.

    1. I think you should use cocoa butter if they are really bad. Turmeric is good if you have scars that was almost disappearing. And dont be embarassed because you dont know but LOTS of people have them. I get hundreds of emails from people in a week asking me solutions to get rid of scars so don't worry about it :)

  92. I've used Mederma on old & new scars since June of this year & they have all faded/smoothed out considerably. I still use it on any scars that look pink/raised until they turn brownish. I also used Palmer's cocoa butter on my prego belly this year, gained 40lbs very gradually (I'm a small girl, 5'3" 120lbs normally), but since all the women in my fam got stretch marks, I still managed to get a small amount. Mederma has a stretch mark formula that I've been using on my belly & boobs since I delivered (3 months now) & it is giving me the results I hoped for....fading marks. I also tan, so w/ that I can't notice my stretch marks unless I'm really looking for them. I researched stretch marks & accepted that they are definitely hereditary, can't really be prevented, definitely permanent (they're tears in the connective tissue under the skin itself), & take time to fade. Ladies who have them, they're your motherhood stripes, so do what you find necessary to make yourself feel better about having them, but accept them as a part of your body.
