Do you have scars? Well, I do! And I think most of us have, since we might have gotten ourselves into little (or even big) accidents at one point or another. As little kids, we often get cuts, scrapes or bumps from being too playful. And we, adults, are no exception. We can still get scars from surgeries, acne or even from simply being careless (like me!)
Scars are proof of what we have been through. Some consider their scars to be special, even refer to them as remembrance. But to most people, these can be embarrassing and annoying. Of course, there are a lot of options to remove scarring. There’s dermabrasion, chemical peels, laser skin resurfacing, plastic surgeries and even filler injections. But not only they are expensive, they can also be painful and can have a long recovery time.
Good thing there are topical creams/ointments that can also help to improve the appearance of scars making them less visible.

I have a lot of scars, most of which are on my face…no thanks to my nasty habit of pricking. But since I am now back to my old skincare regimen that has worked for me in the past, I won’t be using this gel on my acne scars.
Instead, I’ll be testing it on this one-year old scar on my left arm that I got from using my curling iron:
Since it’s located near my wrist where I wear a watch, this burn took quite a long time to heal. I know I should’ve stopped wearing watches for some time first, but like my mobile phone, I cannot leave the house without a watch…and I am not used to wearing watches on my right wrist. Stubborn, I know!
The discoloration is obvious that even my mom told me to cover it with makeup. The skin on it is also rough, maybe because it’s been scratched a lot of times with my watch.
I’ve been using Hiruscar for more than 2wks now, applying it twice daily. I like that it gets absorbed easily so it doesn’t add up a lot of “waiting time” on my already-long after-bath ritual. And since it’s clear, I don’t have to worry about stains.
I’ve noticed that the scar has gone a bit lighter. Before the scar felt like it’s pitted, but now it seems to have softened in texture. I got excited that I started applying Hiruscar on some of my pimple scars too! I also have this really big keloid on my left shoulder, caused by a vaccine that itched and I’ve scratched like there’s no tomorrow when I was younger. I know this gel is said to work on scars less than 2yrs old but who knows? This might lighten my keloid too which kept me from wearing sleeveless tops all these years.
I can say that Hiruscar works. And I’m sure that I’ll see a lot more improvement after 12 wks of using it. But of course, I am realistic enough not to expect that this will totally remove all my scars and give me baby-smooth skin after. But at least, there’s still a solution to our scar problems that doesn’t cost a lot and with no downtime too!
