Finding the right treatment to get rid of scars can be challenging and intimidating. It can be difficult to know where to start, and there are plenty of skincare brands out there that claim that their products will get rid of scars. If you’re looking for a highly effective skincare routine to treat scars with all-natural products and ingredients, you’re in luck! Founder and CEO of Alitura, Andy Hnilo, will share his scar treatment protocol, along with healthy lifestyle tips on how to beat the battle with scarring.
Scar Treatment Protocol
Step 1: Cleanse
First, cleanse with The Alitura Pearl Cleanser. Rinse your face with warm water to open the pores. Apply 3-4 pumps of The Pearl Cleanser to your hands and massage into your face in an upwards direction. Rinse with warm water. Follow with a cold rinse to close the pores.
Step 2: Derma Roll
Apply The Alitura Derma Roller (we recommend starting with the 0.5mm) in (+) and (x) directions, up and down, and then diagonally. Be careful to not drag the roller as that can irritate and "scrape" the skin. Use light to medium pressure when applying. Cover the entire target area, it may be red, that is fine.
Step 3: Clay Mask Up
In a non-metallic bowl (Bamboo, wood, glass, ceramic, stoneware, etc) mix 2-3 tbs of The Alitura Clay Mask with equal parts of Bragg's Raw Apple Cider Vinegar until the emulsion is similar to a toothpaste-like consistency. We recommend adding any of these to The Clay Mask mix: Lemongrass, Clary Sage, Sweet Orange, German Blue Chamomile, Ylang Ylang, Frankincense, Sandalwood, Grapefruit, Lavender, Pracaxi essential oils. They help ease the "earthy" aroma of The Clay Mask while adding skin conditioning benefits and a little aromatherapy. Apply The Clay Mask in an upwards motion. Let completely dry to allow full capillary constriction.
Step 4: Rinse
We recommend rinsing off The Clay Mask in the shower with warm water. Follow with a cold rinse to close the pores.
Step 5: Hydrate and Heal
Apply 2-4 pumps of The Alitura Gold Serum in your palm and massage into your face covering the entire face and/or target area.
Step 6: Repair
Scoop out a dime (maybe smaller) sized amount of The Alitura Night Cream and apply to the entire face and/or specific target areas. It is SO important to apply every night before bed. This formula is extremely healing and hydrating. Plant-derived stem cells, colostrum, manuka honey, COQ-10...flat out game-changer.
In between days (days where you are not doing the treatment), we want you to use The Alitura Meteorite Scrub (coming soon!). First, cleanse with The Alitura Pearl Cleanser. Then scoop out about a dime to a quarter-sized amount of The Meteorite Scrub and massage gently into the face and affected area. Follow with The Alitura Gold Serum, and seal the moisture in with a couple of pats of The Alitura Night Cream. Even during the day... let the formula work its magic :)
We recommend doing this 2-3 times a week with the initial Clay Mask and Derma Roller protocol then follow on "off days" with the scrub 1-2 times a week. We don't want to necessarily overdo it, to allow full cell turnover to occur, but at the same time, exfoliating, protecting, and nourishing the area will lead to us beating this thing!
If you're out in the sun...that's the tough part. The thing with sunlight is it could seal the scar, and we obviously don't want that. Be sure to apply a layer of sunscreen to the affected area. Here at Alitura, we are making a sunscreen... stay tuned :)
