How to get rid of stretch marks ♡


Stretch marks can be troublesome and annoying, but first before I let you know how to get rid of them i'm going to tell you WHY you get them! Stretch marks happen when your skin is stretched because of rapid growth. Our skin is actually really stretchy on its own, but when it is stretched beyond its limits, collagen runs out and creates scars, stretch marks. Almost everybody has them and its a normal part of growing up so I wouldn't be too hung up over them. I have some, too! Now, i'll give you some information on how to reduce them!

 ♥ Moisturize  
Moisturizing the area can help reduce stretch marks. Make sure to keep extra good attention to areas that already have them, and areas you are worried about. My mom recommends coco butter (that's what she used during pregnancy) and now a days there are even lotions to help reduce them all together! I've personally never used such a lotion, but i'm sure it does help a little bit better than a regular lotion. Keeping your whole body nice and moisturized is a really great thing to make your skin glow and look as healthy as can be!

 ♥ Potato slices  
Using potato slices is a great way to reduce redness and stretch marks because they contain lots of great things to help the skin regenerate itself. Potatoes are really big to cut the slices kind of thin and just rub it on the areas you are worried about/where your stretch marks are and it should help over time.

 ♥ Lemons  
Lemons are amazing at getting rid of scars because they help lighten things. Remember when you were little people would always talk about lightening their hair with lemons? Well they were right! Get fresh lemons and squeeze out all the juice into a cup and use a cotton ball to apply the lemon juice on the areas where you have the stretch marks. Leave it on for about 10-15 minutes then wash it off! This is a great thing to do before a shower. 

 Olive oil  
Olive oil contains vitamin E which helps restore skin tissue, so you can just get a little bit of olive oil and use it as a lotion. Although you might smell a little funny and get all shiny! Oil softens your skin and will help your skin stretch easier without marking. 

  ♥ Aloe vera 
Aloe vera is amazing for acne scars, sun burns, AND stretch marks! It's very gentle so you can use this treatment everyday. They sell 100% natural aloe vera gel that is already bottled, so I would recommend getting that and using a cotton ball to apply. You can also use it for your face!

 ♥ Temporary relief  
When I was researching online I found out that a lot of people love using self tanner lotions to help the appearance of stretch marks when they go to the beach because the self tanner makes them look almost invisible! You can also use face and body makeup on them. But these won't help in the long run, just for the day.

 ♥ Some tips  
Remember that it's not the end of the world if you have some stretch marks, you are human! You grow, and it's a normal part of life. If you really find yourself stressing out over this, please see a dermatologist because all of the ways i'm showing you have been shown to work over time, but probably won't get rid of them one hundred percent. I love you, and love your body because it's the only one you got!

  2. Hello there!

    You forgot the most important (and effective, probably) ingredient to get rid of stretch marks and scars: the rosehip seed oil. (I don't know If in your country is called like that, in Spain is "aceite de Rosa Mosqueta")
    They sell it like a pure oil, and in creme/lotion too, and it's the most effective that I know nowadays, a lot more than Aloe Vera or Olive Oil.

    Another thing that is SUPER important, more than make them look invisible with self tanner when you go outside, it's just the opposite, PROTECT THEM with sun lotion!! With the most high SPF possible, always 50+. The more the sun touches the scar/stretch mark, the more visible it would be, so always protect it from the sun.

    (I work as a pharmacist, and I tell all this to you because there is a lot of myths about this topic, and people get very confused about scar care, and dermal car in general)

  4. The first thing to realize about stretch marks is that weight gain can contribute to their appearance. So, if you are overeating and gaining weight, you place yourself at risk for stretch marks. A diet that is too high in calories for your activity level will pack on fat.

    A diet loaded with refined sugar and saturated fat will definitely contribute to excess weight gain. Excess weight gain, in turn, can contribute to the onset of those certainly undesirable stretch marks.
