As some of you may know, I had a bike accident last summer. It was pretty unspectacular, no other people or vehicles were involved, I have no recollection of what happened and the man at the bike shop couldn’t for the life of him figure out what happened to mangle my entire front wheel when the brakes remained perfectly intact.
Anyway, the results were a pretty severe concussion, some broken fingers and a number of scars across mostly my face, shoulder and hand. Not ideal!
As summer approaches, I’m increasingly aware of the scars. I have quite soft skin and tend to scar quite easily anyway but the ones from the deeper injuries to my right hand in particular, are not looking like they’re going away any time soon.
Here’s what I’ve tried so far:
- Daily massaging
- Bio-Oil & other Vitamin E based products
- Taking vitamin E supplements
- Eating recommended foods
The scars are better but still pretty hardcore. I’m guessing they’re also likely to get a whole lot worse if they see the sun. Anyone got any thoughts on this?
