Basically you can try the remedies that contain oatmeal, lime juice and rice flour in it. They work very well in making the scars to get diminished very soon. I used those face masks for about once in every week. Most of the times, I used it twice in every week in the initial stages. It really offered me the results I was looking for. I am pretty much satisfied with the results. You can also try out this natural remedy and make those scars to become less visible on your face and body. Apart from that certain ingredients like aloe vera gel, cucumber can be the best cure for treating sunburns too.

  16. Hi DEEPTHI REDDY! My suggestion for your doubt would be to avoid taking up such skin whitening injections. Some times taking up such injections can be unfavorable to our body and health. This will entirely depend on your health condition. I have also heard that some injections like Glutathione are safe to try them on your skin. But I am not sure how far they are true and safe on your skin for whitening them. So, now you may use those natural remedies specified in this article regularly on your face and body. Do a proper research in finding a professional doctor who has a lot of experience in giving such skin treatments using injections. Get a proper advice from him/her by describing about all the skin problems you have. It is also very important to mention whether you are allergic to any of the chemicals or compounds. Make sure that the injection does not contain any of such agents. Also, mention the type of your skin whether it is sensitive, dry or oily. Based on your skin type, doctors will prefer you the best treatments. Do not take such injections from an unprofessional person or without getting proper advices from doctors. If the doctor says to avoid, please stick to their words. Do not give it a try blindly as it might cause any kind of infections and harmful effects on your skin and body.
