I'm New! Any help appreciated :)
My main concern/priority: FADING OLD (like 1-year old) scars! These scars are areas I have picked on my left breast, upper thigh, and face. My few face scars are hidden pretty well by makeup and light pink, so they're not as much of a priority. The scars on my body are dark red/brown/purpley splotches that are flat now, but haven't faded much. My story: I have been picking my skin *for years* but it's actually gotten more extreme with age. I think I do it when I am bored/anxious/emotionally stressed. I always target the same areas. My oldest scar is probably 2 years old, but most of them are from the past year. I think as I have gotten older and the habit has gotten worse, I'm slower at healing. I talked to my most recent ex and he told me that my scars part of the reason he couldn't continue being in a relationship with me, and that he wanted me to be proactive about this so I don't have to carry this around with me forever :( This was mean, but he was definitely just giving me tough love for my own good. I couldn't agree with him more. it's time to be proactive about it. What I am doing: -- taking a multivitamin and fish oil every day -- nadinola fading cream on old scars (on breast and upper thigh), morning and night -- bio oil on all affected areas a couple times a day -- a vitamin E moisturizer from CVS Am I doing too much? Am I missing anything very effective? Please remember that these are **old** scars... thank you SO MUCH for your help and support. Also, on a side note, I'm trying to journal everything I do to my skin so I can become more mindful and hopefully become better at not picking. Thanks!!
