Some mothers look at stretch marks as scars, battle wounds, reminders NOT to get pregnant again, etc. I heard them all. Me personally, I don’t care what people call them. I just want mine GONE!!! Here are a few remedies on how to get rid of stretch marks.
1.) Use a moisturizer. Your skin is less likely to stretch and create stretch marks if it is hydrated. Try some over the counter lotions at your local department store. Make sure it specializes in skin moisture such as Aveeno, Olay and Cetaphil.
2.) Mederma stretch mark therapy: It delivers “visible to the naked eye” results in as little as 12 weeks. It is a cream formula that combines
- Cepalin,® a proprietary botanical extract
- Hyaluronic acid
- Centella asiatica plant extract
3.) Shea butter and cocoa butter: Massaging either of the two a few times a day will hydrate your skin and fade away stretch marks.
4.) Aloe Vera: It can be applied to the skin daily to help hydrate, heal and soothe the skin and diminish stretch marks.
5.) Sugar: Make your own exfoliating scrub by using natural sugar with a few drops of oil and lemon juice. Rub the mixture on the stretch mark area before showering each day and watch the stretch marks disappear.
