4 reasons you shouldn’t be ashamed of your scars

4 reasons you shouldn’t be ashamed of your scars

Many people have scars. You’re not alone. Whether you’ve just had surgery or fell out of a tree as a child, you shouldn’t be ashamed of your scars. They’re part of who you are. Some people spend lots of time and energy trying to hide their scars from the world. They use makeup, restrict what they wear and never wear a swimsuit. But that’s no way to live your life.    Here are four reasons why you shouldn’t be ashamed of your scars. 

Each scar tells a story

Your scar may remind you of the freedom of your youth, when you played without abandon, even though you ended up being hurt. Or perhaps your scar was the result of a car accident you were involved in and reminds you that you should live life to the fullest because you never know what might happen in the future. Each mark on your body tells a story. They are your battle scars and are there to help you remember everything you’ve been through.  

Scars are part of your body and you should love your body

You should love your body, no matter what. It’s the only one you have. It doesn’t matter whether you have a huge scar running down your leg or a series of small scars on your stomach, they are a part of you. You shouldn’t be afraid to showcase any part of your body. Don’t be scared of what other people may think. If they’re worth your attention, they will applaud your confidence and encourage you to love yourself. 

Scars aren’t as ugly as you think they are

You only think your scars are ugly because you don’t see them on models in magazines. But those models aren’t representative of everyday people. They are the exception. And, besides that, they have been airbrushed and photoshopped. Real human beings don’t look like that. Your scars aren’t ugly. They’re just another decoration on your beautiful and unique body. 

There are ways to minimise the appearance of scars 

Even though you should not be ashamed of your scars, there are ways to make them less obvious if you’re insecure about them. You can use Ingram’s Tissue Oil repair cream or gel to reduce the appearance of these scars within eight weeks. It’s not about getting rid of your scars. It’s about looking after your skin so you can feel comfortable wearing whatever you want, without covering up your body because you’re self-conscious.
