Stretch marks appear when you suddenly lose or gain weight. Women are particularly vulnerable to getting stretch marks (especially pregnant women) but this doesn’t mean men can’t have them too. They mostly appear on the belly, butt, thighs and arms.
Because of their unsightly nature, stretch marks can reduce your self-confidence so most people try to cover them up. Some cover them up using make up while others find it easier to wear clothes that conceal them.
If you are like most people, it will reach a point where you will want to eventually get rid of them. You can opt to go to a dermatologist who will advise you on the best treatment to rid yourself of the stretch marks. These treatments are not cheap, however, and they don’t always guarantee that they’ll make your marks disappear.
Thankfully, we have done our research and have found that you can reduce the appearance of stretch marks using ingredients that are already in your own home. You can combine most of these treatments in order to achieve maximum results. For example, you can exfoliate and then apply olive oil as a moisturizer.
Caution: You should note that some of the treatments listed here might interfere with any topical treatments you are using, so talk to your doctor before trying any of our suggested treatments. In addition, your skin might react to any one of the ingredients so we recommend you first apply the treatments on the inner part of your elbow and leave it on for 24 hours to see if you’ll get a reaction.
With that said, here are 10 natural ways to get rid of stretch marks:
10 Egg Whites
Egg whites contain amino acids and proteins, two key ingredients necessary for repairing skin cells efficiently. So pamper your skin and give it that smooth, fair appeal with the help of egg whites.
9 Lemon Juice
7 Aloe Vera
6 Castor Oil
5 Potato Juice
4 Olive Oil
2 Cocoa Butter
Water not only detoxifies your body but it also helps to keep your skin supple and restores its elasticity. Experts recommend that you drink at least 8 glasses of water every day to keep your body hydrated and to keep your skin soft. Try as much as possible to avoid drinking soda, coffee or tea and you should soon start to see your stretch marks disappear.
