Time, if allowed heals all with a little effort your track marks will minimize until they eventually disappear altogether. Here are some methods you will find helpful to heal track marks.

For skin regeneration a gentle scrub should be applied daily. This will remove any dead skin, or other debris such as soap scum, and lotion. Scrubs could be purchased from any drug store, or if you are ambitious, you can easily make your own just using a couple of household products.

Told you, this is easy, now it is very important to follow this next step. Take a vitamin E capsule and break it open to release the gel inside, and smear it over the intended area.

Though, if none of those are available to you, do not worry. Petroleum jelly to the rescue, a little Vaseline may do the trick too.
