Product Hype: Zax’s Original Scar Fading Cream

While a scar on just the right body part can look sexy, having one forever on display on your biggest bicep or scattered across your cheeks from acne breakouts isn’t the same thing. At all. So with beach time and outdoor pool swimming on the immediate horizon, rubbing a little of Zax’s Original Scar Fading Cream on now is definitely a good idea.

Crafted by Canadians, the specialty treatment cream is effective, no-nonsense and developed by a pharmacist and his team of chemists and botanists. The cream’s formula contains natural ingredients includinganti-inflammatory and healing herbcentella asiatica, skincare and scar tissue healing calendula extract, antioxidantpinebark extract, collagen boosting and skin smoothing vitamin E and hydrating and soothing aloe.

All you have to do to wave buh bye to unwanted scars is to rub a small dollop of the cream onto your skin twice a day. New scars can typically take about four weeks to fade away, while old war wounds can require the twice-daily applications for several months. Either way you’ll want to make sure your skin is clean and dry beforehand and to never apply the cream onto an open wound. Be patient and consistent, because in time your scars will blur into nonexistence and your skin will look and feel soft and moisturized.

And just to add a humble brag on behalf of the Zax team, they’re donating 20 per cent of all of online sales to the Red Cross Canada in support of their COVD-19 efforts. Plus, Zax’s, alongside Frontline Beauty Canada, have donated 2,000 tubes of their Facial Redness Cream to healthcare workers across the country. Talk about fading emotional scars, right….
