EFFECTIVE HOME REMEDIES FOR STRETCH MARKS

Home Remedies for Stretch Marks

 

Stretch marks, also called striae, happen when your skin changes shape rapidly due to growth or weight gain. They aren’t a sign that anything is wrong with your health.

Both men and women can get stretch marks. Pregnancy and puberty are the two most common times in life to get stretch marks.

At first, a stretch mark will appear as a thin red or purple line on your skin that takes on a different texture than the surrounding skin layer. Eventually, most stretch marks fade and take on a lighter or almost translucent coloring, and become shiny.

Getting rid of stretch marks in a completely natural way isn’t likely. They’re a type of scarring that rarely fades enough to become invisible. However, there are some remedies that can help minimize the appearance of stretch marks and help them to fade more quickly.

1. Vitamin A

using a topical extract of vitamin A, or taking vitamin A orally, can contribute to your skin’s health and overall appearance. A diet rich in certain foods, such as carrots and sweet potatoes, might also help you increase your vitamin A levels.

2. Rubbing a sugar scrub on the skin will exfoliate the area. To do this:

Mix one cup sugar with 1/4 cup of a softening agent, like almond oil or coconut oil, before mixing to the consistency of wet beach sand.
Add some lemon juice.
Scrub the mixture on the part of your body where the stretch marks are.
Repeat several times a week while in the shower, making sure to rub the mixture on for 8-10 minutes.

3. Aloe Vera

Apply pure aloe vera from a plant to your stretch marks daily after your shower.

4. Coconut Oil

Applying virgin coconut oil to your stretch marks each day might take away some of their red appearance. Unless you’re allergic to coconuts, this oil is considered safe.

5. Petroleum Jelly

Apply the petroleum jelly on the stretch marks and massage for 5-10 minutes. Do this every night before going to bed.

6. Dry Brush

Gently brush the affected area with the dry brush using circular upward motions. Continue brushing for 5-6 minutes. Shower as usual and apply a good moisturizer. Repeat this every day before taking a bath.

7. Egg Whites

Beat 1-2 egg whites lightly and apply with the brush on the affected areas.
Let it dry naturally. Rinse with cool water and moisturize. Add a couple of drops of coconut oil or almond oil to the egg white for added benefits. Use this egg white pack every day for best results.

8. Apple Cider Vinegar

Dilute1 cup Apple cider vinegar with water and pour it into a spray bottle.
Spray it on the stretch marks and let it dry naturally.
Leave it on overnight.
Shower as usual in the morning and follow up with a good moisturizer.
Repeat this every night, before going to bed.

9. Add vitamin E oil to any unscented moisturizer and apply it
