Why Do My Scars Become More Visible in Summer?

Many people notice that their scars become more visible during the summer. This can be frustrating and even embarrassing for some. But why does this happen? And what can you do to make scars less noticeable?

Sun Darkens Your Skin

There are a few main reasons why scars may become more noticeable in the hot summer months. One of the main reasons is increased exposure to the sun. Scars are often lighter than the surrounding skin. As your undamaged skin tans, the scar tissue does not and becomes more pronounced and noticeable.


Dehydration is another factor contributing to the increased visibility of scars in the summertime. When the body is dehydrated, the skin can become dry and flaky. This can make scars appear more prominent and noticeable, as the dry skin around the scar tissue can accentuate its appearance.

Combat Noticeable Scars with Medical-Grade Silicone Gel

Plus, you can fight back against visible scars that embarrass you with medical-grade silicone you apply in the privacy of your own home. Pur-Sil Pure Scar Care is a topical gel that flattens, softens and makes scars less visible. Instead of using sticky silicone sheets, apply this soothing scar care gel as part of your daily skin care routine to reduce the appearance of scars in any location. This top-quality product is excellent for:
