  • Use sunscreen on your keloids to keep them from discoloring further.
  • Mixtures of mustard seed, rose, jojoba, lavender, calendula, and coconut oils can be used on the scars to help reduce their appearance. They should be left on for 15 minutes then washed away with a mild cleanser.
  • Apple cider vinegar can be applied to the scar four or five times a day. Dilute with water before rubbing on with a cotton ball.
