How to Remove Stretch Marks: 7 Effective Natural R
By Sharmila Shan On 27 Sep, 2016  


Most women suffer from stretch marks usually after pregnancy, but that's not the only cause for it. Men too have stretch marks and so do women who are not pregnant. Stretch marks occur due to a sudden weight gain or weight loss.

There are various natural products that can help reduce stretch marks and lighten them if not make them disappear completely. However, it requires a regular skin care programme and strict discipline.

Here are a few effective home remedies to reduce stretch marks -

1. Aloe Vera:-

Aloe vera is a plant that helps regenerate skin tissue and as such it has miraculous healing properties. Take the fresh gel from the leaf and massage onto the area with stretch marks and leave on for 20-30 minutes. Do it daily and wash off with tepid water.

2. Cocoa Butter:-

The use of cocoa butter helps reduce stretch marks and I have seen that if used during and after pregnancy it makes the stretch marks disappear completely. The best time to use cocoa butter is at night, so massage it well into the skin and over a period of time you will find the stretch marks reducing and fading away.

3. Cucumber and Lemon Juice

Lemon juice's natural acidity helps heal and reduce scars and cucumber juice provides the cool soothing effect leaving your skin fresh.

Mix lime juice and cucumber juice in equal parts, and apply the mixture on the affected areas till it gets soaked up by the skin. Let it be on your skin for approx. 10 minutes after which you can rinse it off using warm water.
4. Almond and Coconut Oil:-

Use almond and coconut oil in equal quantities to reduce stretch marks. Massage it on the skin regularly.



5. Apricot Mask and Oil:-

Apricots have great exfoliating tendencies, which make them very effective when it comes to healing stretch marks. Take 2-3 apricots, cut them and take out the seeds. Crush the fruit into a paste and apply this mask on the stretch mark affected areas and leave it on for 15 minutes. Using warm water, wash it off and then repeat the process every day for a month to see results.

Pure apricot oil has skin rejuvenating properties and therefore helps in reducing stretch marks. Massage onto the skin with some lemon juice for effective results.

6. Castor Oil

Because of their dried, shrivelled up look, stretch marks need nourishment and moisture. Castor oil when massaged onto the skin will help heal and smoothen the marks slowly. But this is something that you need to constantly feed the skin with.

7. Nourishing Skin Mask:-

Over my 20 years of experience in beauty, I have seen the incredible effect of the following nourishing mask in reducing stretch marks -

((2 egg yolks, beaten,

Juice of one lemon,

2tsp oatmeal,

2tsp almond paste,

Enough milk to mix to a smooth paste))

Method: Mix all the ingredients well and apply on the marks and let it dry completely. Wash off with cold water while scrubbing gently. This should be done on alternate days.

As you may have noticed while reading through my article, treating stretch marks the natural way is not an overnight miracle. It will require your time and patience but the results will be fruitful. So now that you have some easy and useful home remedies to deal with stubborn stretch marks,
