Although having a baby can be a wonderful thing, what it does to your body is not, and often after having a baby, women are left with stretch marks. While harmless, and a natural part of a mother’s body, understandably many women would like to remove them, but with all the “miracle” products out there, how can you be sure you are buying something that actually works and not just spending 30, 40, or even 50 dollars on something that won’t make those marks go away? The best method is to use a home remedy. All-natural ingredients work wonders, you know exactly what you are putting on your skin, and it will cost you significantly less. Plus, if it doesn’t work, what have you to lose?
The recipe in the video below uses olive oil, vitamin E capsules, and Aloe Vera gel. Olive oil has many antioxidants and vitamins and has been used as a homemade stretch mark reducer for years. It also helps keep your skin soft. Aloe Vera has many healing properties and can help with all types of scars. It serves to fade those stretch marks, and it improves the growth of new cells. Vitamin E is what is found in the skin’s maintenance system, so it is essential for helping your skin repair those stretch marks.
As with any skin routine, you must be both consistent and patient for the treatment to work. Check out the video below to see how to create the remedy and how to apply it, and watch those stretch marks slowly fade away.
Vitamin E, one of the key ingredients in the homemade stretch-mark remover, helps the skin’s elasticity so is also good to prevent stretch marks before they happen. Just remember that the newer the stretch marks the easier they are to remove. Older stretch marks will take more time to remove than newer ones.
The darker and more severe your stretch marks, the longer they will take to fade and the less dramatic the results may be. As she said in the video, everyone’s body is different, so what works wonderfully for one person may not work as well for another. Don’t give up though. It doesn’t hurt to try it, and if you don’t see the results you want after giving it a fair amount of time, try sometimes else. You can make those stretch marks fade eventually.
If you’d prefer to try other skin creams or treatments, you can look here for ideas. Alternatively you can use diatomaceous earth instead. Most successful creams for stretch marks will have aloe and/or vitamin E in them in some form, as those are the best at improving skin healing and regrowth and reducing the appearance of marks and lines. There are also surgical methods to remove stretch marks, though they are considerably more expensive and carry the same risks as any surgery.
