|Remove Stretch Marks|
Do you have stretch marks and are having trouble getting rid of them? You’re not alone. Having stretch marks is a skin issue that affects many women and some men. The causes include puberty, weight gain, weight loss, corticosteroids, genetics, bodybuilding, etc.
Below are multiple natural products you should try to reduce stretch marks or make them disappear completely.
1. Aloe Vera
Aloe vera is a popular plant for many good health reasons. The plant helps regenerate skin tissue, thanks to its miraculous healing properties. Extract the fresh gel inside the leaf and massage the area with stretch marks and leave it to penetrate the skin for 20-30 minutes. Include the use in your daily routine. Always use it off your skin with tepid water.
2. Argan oil
Argan oil which contains a high volume of Vitamin E, increases the skin’s elasticity. Smear the oil on the stretch marks to heal the damaged tissues by fading the stretch marks gradually.
3. Cocoa Butter
One other home remedy for stretch marks is to massage the marks with cocoa butter. I’ve personally witnessed them disappear after pregnancy thanks to cocoa butter. Note that using cocoa butter at night for stretch marks works wonders. Simply massage the butter into the skin and wait for some time to witness the stretch marks decrease and fade away.
4. Cucumber and Lemon Juice
The juice in lemon provides the skin with an excellent soothing effect, rendering it fresh. The natural acidity of lemon juice helps heal and reduce scars, including stretch marks. A mixture of both in equal quantities is a potent home remedy for any skin with stretch marks. Once mixed, apply it on the affected areas till your skin soaks it up within about 10 minutes before you wash it off.
5. Egg white
Egg white comes packed with proteins and amino acids as the superfood that it is for the skin. Apply egg white to your stretch marks and see it lighten and tighten your skin to your satisfaction.
6. Potato juice
Potatoes are starchy in content and also contain other skin lighting enzymes. No wonder they are often used to lighten skin dark spots, circles, and blemishes. When used regularly, the product bleaches the skin enough to reduce the visibility of stretch marks.
7. Olive oil
Olive oil has high moisturising properties, including lots of antioxidants and other extremely good nutrients for repairing damaged skin. In the same way, applying cold-pressed olive oil on stretch marks is a great way to have them disappear gradually but surely.
8. Castor oil
Get castor oil and massage it directly on your stretch marks for about 15-20 minutes. Massage it in a circular motion and when done, place a thin cotton cloth on the area to cover it. Then apply some heat with a heating pad. Do this often within a month and watch your stretch marks fade away.
9. Black tea
Black tea is rich in high amounts of vitamins and minerals, including Vitamin B12, that help manage skin pigmentation. The best way to apply black tea as a natural remedy for stretch marks is to boil some few tablespoons of black tea and not forget to add some salt. When it cools, apply it to the marks and keep repeating the process until they disappear.
