Want to Prevent a Scar? Manuka honey’s antibacterial properties actually lift dirt from the bed of the wound and help battle infection—a key to preventing a scar from forming in the first place. Manuka’s particularly high vitamin C content also leads to a faster rate of tissue regeneration and inflammation suppression.

Heal scars naturally with these tips from Seattle-based naturopath Tamara Cullen, ND:

Want to Prevent a Scar? Manuka honey’s antibacterial properties actually lift dirt from the bed of the wound and help battle infection—a key to preventing a scar from forming in the first place. Manuka’s particularly high vitamin C content also leads to a faster rate of tissue regeneration and inflammation suppression. Applying aloe vera to a cut also works well when it comes to scar prevention; the allantoin in the aloe plant stimulates new cell growth.

Have a New Scar? Calendula cream, which is high in flavonoids, helps strengthen skin. Use it along with vitamin E oil; its soothing and anti-inflammatory properties soften skin and promote healing.

Have an Old Scar? Once scar tissue forms, there’s not a lot you can do. But Barbara Close, author of Pure Skin (Chronicle, 2005), recommends trying products with frankincense, which has been shown to soothe aging skin, and geranium, which has anti-inflammatory components that heal and regenerate skin.

For Stretch Marks: Try gotu kola (Centella asiatica), an ayurvedic herb that offers antibiotic and wound-healing properties. Take 1/2 to 1 teaspoon of a tincture daily, or 300 to 400 mgs a day in capsule form.
