It's best to not let your wounds dry and scab over if possible, ie keep them as moisturized as possible - this increases time available for healing (Scabs create proteins that begin ending the healing phase) and potentially less scarring. Counterintuitive since all my life I was told to let my wounds dry out
I use a pore cleansing mask on my t-zone, exfoliate good then use a good moisturizer with some vaseline lightly applied around my eyes and in dry spots and my skin looks great. I get compliments on my complexion. All the products I use are inexpensive. I've tried the more pricey products and didn't notice a difference.
if i had realized that i would have slathered the whole thing in something to keep it well hydrated instead of letting it dry out.
The Vasoline thing must be true because it was told to me today by the plastic surgeon that removed the skin tags off my eyelids. He told me to not let my eyelids get dry over the next week, to use - drum roll please - vasoline on them.
Yep, that's what they all say, the good ones anyway.
Vaseline will not cause zits because it doesn't clog pores. I put some one my face a while back because during the winter I get dry flaky skin around my mouth. Overnight, it magically healed. I've been using lotion but it doesn't not work hardly at all compared to the vaseline. The only problem is hair sticking to my face or getting it on my bed sheets/pillow case.
