how a fresh scar healed

just wanna share this. I popped a pimple, it bled, and it was on its way to healing (or so i thought). I put a band-aid over it to protect. This turned out to be a big mistake coz when i took the band aid off, the scab and some white skin cells came along with it, leaving behind a distinct round pin prick hole.

Amazingly, the next 5 days, the hole pretty much healed itself, although there are still a red mark. What I did: I drank lots of water. Took Vitamin C and E. I didnt apply anything on the scar. Just left it alone, except when i washed my face. Now, the pin prick hole is gone but there's a red mark.

My theory is I think when the hole is still fresh, the better the chance it would heal itself, provided you drink lots of water, take vitamins and leave it alone.
