Onions are effective on scars by helping regenerate damaged skin. To use it, first take onion extract and apply it to the scarred areas. This extract helps improve collagen production wherever it is applied, significantly improving the appearance of scars. When you start the onion extract treatment, you will see results after approximately six to eight weeks.
How Do You Prepare Onion Extract?
You will need:
- cutting board
- dish soap
- coffee filters
- distilled water
- two medium sized bowls
1. Cut the onion in very small pieces, trying to make them equal in size.
2. Mix three grams of salt with ten grams of soap. Then combine the mixture into the onions.
3. Put the mixture in a water bath for about fifteen minutes, and then immediately put it in cold water for five minutes, and keep stirring.
4. Blend for five seconds and then strain it using the coffee filter. The liquid that remains from straining the mixture is onion extract.
In order to get the best results, onion extract should be applied to the scarred areas once a day, whether it is lured or mixed with a moisturizing cream or the cleanser you use regularly.
You should be careful when using this product. If you have very sensitive skin, you are at risk of it getting irritating and getting contact dermatitis. That is why you should pay attention to your skin’s reactions and if you notice it getting red or something similar, you should stop the treatment immediately. If necessary, see a dermatologist as soon as possible.
