6 home remedies to heal cuts

Cut your finger while slicing onions in the kitchen or hurt your foot while exercising? While leaving the cuts open might heal them, try these home remedies to treat the wounds faster.
Turmeric powder: With its high antiseptic properties, dabbing a generous amount of turmeric powder on a fresh cut will help stop the oozing of blood and also prevent infections.
Apple Cider Vinegar: With its anti-itching properties, Apple Cider Vinegar is a good option to heal wounds.
Sugar: The excessive intake of sugar may be harmful to your body but the same granulated sugar can actually work wonders on your wound. It absorbs the water present in the wound. Sprinkle it on the affected area, but make sure you clean the wound in the next 15 minutes.
Honey: Honey acts as an antibacterial agent on superficial cuts and wounds. It helps clean the wound, prevent further infection as well as reduce the swelling. According to various studies, burns treated with honey healed, on average, in 11 days, which was four days earlier than burns treated without it.
Aloe vera gel: Easily available at chemists, apply this gel directly on the wound. If there is a plant near by, remove the thorns and cut the leaf vertically in half. Gently rub in the gooey part on the wound.
Tea bags: As a mild astringent, tea bags help heal cuts, bites and sty. Applying it on the wound also helps to stop the blood flow.
