If you have a scar on your face or body that is robbing you of your self confidence and self esteem, you can try a home recipe for scar cream in an effort to fade the scar. However, home remedies for scars are anecdotal, based on the experiences of others who have successfully used them to reduce their own scars, so there is no guarantee that the home treatments will work for your condition. Therefore, you should see your doctor for advice on prescription or over-the-counter treatments.

Pour the contents of one Vitamin E capsule, or 1/4 tsp. of liquid Vitamin E, into a small bowl.

Repeat Vitamin E oil treatment one to two times per day until you achieve desired results.
