Scars take a place in the healing process and get left behind according to the size of the injury. Marks of those scars sometimes diminish over time and sometimes they don't. After any affliction to the skin, discoloration takes place. Scars of major injuries leave behind patterns and textures on the skin. These afflictions can be cured or lightened by a few ingredients like coconut oil, vitamin c, retinol, niacinamide, etc. Sunscreen is recommended as scar exposure to the sun can darken it even further.
