Moisturizer/Sebum Causes Scars?

Recommended Posts

I got some scars and i think moisturizing is what's caused them. Think about it...when you moisturize, you put on something that will hydrate or attract more moisture onto the skin thus causing dead skin to not fall off properly, keeping it on the skin. When the pimple tries to heal and make wound-free skin again, it cannot properly with the dead skin still on the wound. This then causes a depression/scar.

Same thing with sebum. Sebum comes out of the pore hydrating/keeping dead skin cells on the skin and not fall off properly. Dead skin builds up on the wound, not allowing it to heal properly, causing a scar.

Does this make sense to anyone?
