There are so many expensive moisturizers and miracle lotions that promise to get rid of your stretch marks. But the sad reality is that most of these don’t even work. So instead of using these expensive brands of creams and lotions, why don’t we make use of items we find in our homes? Read on to find out how.
The white portion of the egg is widely known to help lighten the skin tone. After separating the egg yolk, beat the egg whites gently. Apply this onto clean skin and allow the egg to dry. Rinse it off with cold water. Moisturize skin with coconut oil.
Moisturizing your skin helps maintain the elasticity of the skin. Apply olive oil or coconut oil mixed with a bit of almond oil on your skin every day for at least a month to notice the difference.
Aloe Vera gel can help to heal and repair skin tissues. It has regenerative properties and is known to help heal scars. Apply the gel on your skin and leave it on for 20 minutes. Wash it off with cold water. Use regularly to see the difference.
Potato juice is known to lighten skin and fade marks on the skin. You can either rub a potato slice on your skin to get the juice on your skin or you can grate the potato and cover your skin with it. Allow it to dry before rinsing it off with warm water. Repeat every day for best results.
Cucumber and Lemon
Lemon juice is a natural home remedy in itself which helps to reduce the appearance of a scar. Cucumber juice has skin soothing properties which leaves your skin fresh. By combining the two, they can help heal the scars. Make a mixture by taking equal quantities of the two and apply it onto your skin. Leave it on for 15 minutes and rinse off with lukewarm water.
Honey has natural skin healing and repairing properties. It has been used for centuries together to treat scars. Apply some natural honey over your stretch marks. Leave for 10 minutes and rinse off with warm water. Moisturize with olive oil. Do this on alternate days for 2-3 months to see the difference.
Stretch marks are not something that will go away overnight. All these home remedies take time to give noticeable changes in the appearance of your stretch marks. Apart from this, you should also drink plenty of water – at least 8 glasses a day. Staying hydrated keeps your skin looking and feeling healthy. Get enough sleep as well and apply sunscreen whenever you are heading out.
