I use that along with silicon gel which is supposed to be excellent for scars. But can't see results yet really as too early. Your scars look great already tho! X

I use bio-oil and coconut (albeit a cheap one) and I have to say I prefer the bio-oil.
I dnt like the smell, however it stays oilier for longer compared to my coconut oil.
That said, my coconut oil was from Aldi! Hysterical

I'm sure if you compare it to [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] oil that was much more expensive,  it would be a totally different story Hysterical

Good Luck.

In comparison to bio oil the organic cold pressed coconut oil is cheaper at £6/7 a jar of 280ml. But go with what ever you like, the main point I think is to keep skin supple and soft with any type moisturiser. Plus I just love the smell of coconut oil (reminds my of summer and beaches :-) ) xx

Out of curiosity, at what stage did you moisturise your scars? I have been told to start now but as I am still scabby, I would prefer to wait a little longer until they look ready. I've got a scar cream that has been researched by Mr McGeorge called solution for scars found at [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] - I've heard silicone gels are really good though too to reduce scarring like [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] mentioned. Let me know what you choose and how you get on :) xxx

I was told to start at 3-4 weeks I think! I use both bio oil and silicon gel called kelo cote - surgeon recommended it. I don't really think there are any guarantees - some people will use all the most expensive potions and still get prominent scars... Others will do nothing and theirs will be great! Luck of the draw I think but I'm not taking my chances so I'm an expensive potion kind of girl!! X

The silicone gel stuff is mostly reccomended for keloid scarring, a trait more common with skin of colour. Theres no proof it works though.

I used nothing, and mine are invisible. It just takes time. Like, a year or so

Silicon gel can be used on all types of scarring - I know someone that used it on her daughter after she fell off her bike. But I agree it's often nothing you do - some people leave their scars and do nothing with them and look great - others use all the expensive potions and still get prominent scars. Depends on how you scar in general but I felt like I should try the gel!
