The only thing that is not so good about spring is chicken pox. It not only affects your health, but also your skin. The blisters itch badly when they appear first. As they start drying, the irritation increases and finally they leave ugly scars behind. Often people end up scratching them by mistake which makes the scars worst. These scars take ages to fade and often depress the victim. In this post, I will tell you guys about natural ingredients that help in fading the scars super fast. Bookmark this post now and be prepared to fight the virus in future!
1. Coconut Water
Nothing can beat the effectiveness of coconut water in healing ugly scars. The Lauric acid present in the water helps to reduce any risk of infection on the healing spots. As it is rich in vitamins and minerals, it nourishes the skin, maintains the overall health and promotes skin regeneration which allows the fading of scars.
Both neem water and neem paste are effective to treat chicken pox scar. Bathing with neem leaves boiled water helps to calm down the blisters and dry them quickly. Applying neem paste mixed with lemon juice helps to fade the scars fast and also prevent any inflammation.
3. Calamine Lotion
This is the only non-natural ingredient in the list that is super effective in healing scars. You can start using the calamine lotion when the blisters start appearing. It helps to dry them fast and also soothes the skin which keeps you away from scratching the skin. You will definitely love the cooling sensation. When you apply it regularly on the scar, it locally dries out the skin and exfoliates, allowing new skin to develop and the scar to fade.
This cooling agent calms down your irritated skin and also helps to reduce any swelling. It nourishes the skin locally and also maintains the water balance.

Mild scrubbing with oatmeal helps to remove the old skin in the most gentle manner and helps in the growth of new skin. It lightens the scars and also evens out the skin. You can directly apply it on wet skin or mix it with yogurt, which is a natural skin bleaching ingredient.
Papaya contains papain, an enzyme that breaks down dead layers of skin and promotes cell regeneration. Regular application of papaya mask allows the scars to fade away pretty fast. It soothes all inflammations and gives the skin an even and radiant tone. Often after suffering from pox, the skin looks dull and dry. The antioxidants and vitamins in the papaya nourishes the skin and makes it refreshed.
