Get Rid of Stretch Marks by Utilizing Home Remedies

There is a myriad of stretch mark creams and other products out in the market today, but not a lot of research has been done with the aim of proving if they actually work in preventing and/or treating stretch marks. Aside from the fact that they don’t guarantee results, stretch mark treatments can also be very expensive. This is why a lot of people have opted to use home remedies for stretch marks since they are not only economical, but also safe for use. Since they use natural ingredients, they don’t pose the risk of harmful side effects.

Some Home Remedies for Stretch Marks
1. Natural shea butter is a good source of vitamins A and E, which are both good for skin health. Rub shea butter on the areas with stretch marks several times a day to expedite the healing process.

2. Aloe Vera is known for its healing and soothing properties for burns. Some people claim that it does the same thing for stretch marks since these marks are also a form of skin injury. The following recipe utilize aloe vera and other natural ingredients in order to make a massage oil for the prevention and/or treatment of stretch marks:

- ¼ cup aloe vera gel
- ½ cup olive oil
- 2 capsules of vitamin A (use only the liquid inside)
- 4 capsules of vitamin E (use only the liquid inside)
- Using a blender, mix all the ingredients. Store the mixture in an airtight container overnight in the fridge. Apply the massage oil onto affected areas as needed.

3. Cocoa butter is a popular stretch mark treatment. However, it is most probably not that effective in penetrating deeply into the dermis (the middle layer of our skin.) But like other moisturizing ingredients, it is good for keeping the skin well-hydrated and soft at all times. The following recipe uses cocoa butter in order to make a stretch mark cream:

- ½ cup cocoa butter
- 1 teaspoon apricot kernel oil
- 2 teaspoons grated beeswax
- 1 teaspoon vitamin E oil
- 1 tablespoon wheat germ oil

Combine all ingredients and heat them until the beeswax and cocoa butter melt. Allow it to cool then store in an airtight container. Massage the cream onto affected areas as needed.

I was doing some reading and those are good natural ingredients to help fade stretch marks. I think some will find this to be good alternative if they are looking for something more natural.

Great homemade recipes for strectmarks. Maybe I could add Omorovicza firming body oil (which I'm currently using and works well) to the recipe.

Natural white sugar is one of the best natural remedies to get rid of stretch marks. You can use the sugar to exfoliate your skin. Mix a tablespoon of raw sugar with some almond oil and a few drops of lemon juice. Mix it well and apply it on the stretch marks and other skin areas. Gently rub the mixture on the skin for at least 10 minutes every day before taking a shower. Do this for a month or so and watch your stretch marks become lighter.
