Here are some tips I learned.

For women, using lots of foundation, and cover up makes your scars a lot MORE noticeable unless your scars are just red marks.

Dry skin also makes scars a ton worse looking.

Aloe helps heal scars, and also softens them and makes them less noticeable, the same goes for vitamin a gel.

Quitting smoking also helps scars to heal faster.

Icing over scars shrinks them temporarily.

Hot water makes scars more noticeable..

cold water helps.

NEVER NEVER EVER leave your skin unmoisturized.

also buying a collagen filler at a local store is a good investment, the collagen cream can fill in and level the scars..

last but not least clay masks shrink scar size, but again only temporarily.

also benzoyl peroxide will make scars more inflamed red dry ugly and noticeable so avoid it on scars at all cost.

exfoliating the skin before applying aloe and vitamin a maximizes that benefits of healing the scars..

good luckkkkkkkk!

When you say collagen cream, do you mean as a temporary filler for the day like under makeup?

Or are you saying it will permantly fill in scars?

Thanks
