( — October 9, 2017) Wilmington, DE — There are those who suffer from emotional scars, while others simply struggle with the physical ones. Having visible scars can be difficult, especially when they appear on areas of the body that are hard to cover, such as the face.

Experts reveal the psychology of scars and their effects. Scars have been found to impact people in different ways. Physical scars are often surrounded with emotions, which can cross over into one’s emotional and psychological well-being. The appearance of scars has long been associated with lowered self-esteem and self-confidence.

In a study in 2009 by Burriss et al, it was found that some women actually find scars attractive. They perceived scars as a way to create the “bad boy” effect, which indicated they may have been involved in a fight at some point.

While having a scar on the face doesn’t necessary mean one has gotten into a fight, it is often concluded that the scar may be due to that reason. The results of the study also revealed that women find men with facial scars more desirable, but only for a short-term relationship.

In a study in 2003 by Van Loey and Van Son, it was found that individuals with severe facial scarring are more prone to depression or post-traumatic stress disorders. Depression was noted in 13-23% of cases, while PSTD was in 13-45% of cases. This only shows how scars affect a person’s self-confidence and self-esteem.

There are many ways to reduce scars and the negative effects they cause, and one is to use DermaSafe’s Stretch Mark and Scar Cream. This carefully-crafted moisturizer is aloe vera-based, which makes it superior over other brands that are water-based.

It is formulated to help those who are prone to or are already suffering from scars due to pregnancy, weight loss or gain, muscle buildup, acne, and burns. What makes this anti-scar cream unique is that it contains a combination of skin-health ingredients such as aloe vera, rutin, cucumber, arnica, wood mallow, and elderberries.

This cream may be an excellent option for individuals seeking to reduce their scars and stretch marks. It is worth mentioning that aloe vera actually has more than 75 nutrients and 200 active compounds.

It has long been considered to be highly therapeutic not just for the skin, but for the body. This cream is free from unwanted and harmful ingredients, and may potentially help to regain the health and appearance of the skin.
