Childhood Beauty Blemishes & Their Remedies

Monday 23 October 2017

No matter your age, the chances are that you’re still carrying around a remnant from childhood. That’s not to say that you’ve still got your favourite stuffed animal in your handbag; but that there’s something, some scar or tale of a past malady, somewhere on your body, that is a leftover from an experience you had as a child.

Over time, we may come to see these flaws, marks, and blemishes as just part of the tapestry of our lives, but they can also pose a serious threat to our self-confidence. If you have loved and embraced these reminders of days gone by, then that’s great-- but there are plenty of women who feel their modern life is blighted by problems sustained in childhood. Thankfully, as an adult, you don’t just have to accept these reminders of your childhood; you can do something about them. Here’s how.

Chipped/Broken Teeth

Maybe you tripped and fell; perhaps you weren’t paying attention one day and happened to bang into a doorframe. It happens; kids are clumsy. Many people who have damaged their teeth as children don’t even know they’ve done it until years later, when they’re inspecting their reflection, and see the telltale signs of past woes.

If you have a mental hangup about these problems, then the likes of Natural Smiles can assist in putting a confident smile onto your face. If you’re afraid of the dentist, then this might sound terrifying, but cosmetic dentistry is very different to the experience you’ll have at your annual checkup. Small issues with damaged teeth can be repaired, and the only reminder you’ll have of your clumsy moment is the memory in your mind.

Scars (From Cuts and Scrapes)

As kids, we all had a tendency to get into scrapes. We fell over; we fell off bikes-- and those are just the ones that we remember the origin of. If you have scars, particularly significant ones, that can truly blight your confidence. If that’s the case for you, then it might be worth exploring your options.

There are all kinds of choices for scar reduction, from topical treatments you can do at home to skin treatments you’ll need a certified professional for. While it’s true that the older a scar is, the tougher it is to remove, there’s always something that can be done. It’s worth trying a few at-home remedies first to see if they make a difference; if not, speak to a dermatologist to see what else you could try.


Scars (From Burns)

Just like cuts and scrapes, burns are something most of us have had at least one tangle with. Maybe you spilled a hot mug of tea or just found yourself on the receiving end of your hair straighteners’ wrath; either way, you’ve got a scar and you want rid of it.

Unfortunately, burn scars tend to be even tougher to remove than those sustained from sharp trauma. Your best bet might be to opt for scar-covering makeup. This is makeup that is far thicker and heavier than the kind you use on your face, but it can be incredibly effective at hiding scars from your childhood that you don’t want to allow to appear in your adulthood.

Childhood mishaps stay with us, but if any of the above issues concern you, then the only place they have to linger is in your memory!
