We all have stretch marks whether they are on our breasts, butt, or tummies. There is no reason to be ashamed of these stretch marks.

Stretch marks are usually caused by gaining weight and then quickly losing it. For instance when you are pregnant and then give birth. The skin being stretched to such lengths causes the skin surface to break. You can get these marks in more places than listed above sometimes they show up on the upper arms and thighs as well.

When they first appear they will be a reddish or purplish color but over time they will become silver or gray. It is important that stretch marks are treated during their initial stage. Genetics are something that actually play a large role in stretch mark development. This is something most people are not aware of. If your mother has stretch marks it is very likely that you will develop them yourself.

Luckily these marks can be treated. If you want to remove them in a natural way these remedies can help tremendously. If you’ve ever wanted to say goodbye to your stretch marks now is the time to take action.

Remedies for Stretch Mark Removal

Castor Oil

Casto oil is effective when it comes to reducing the appearance of stretch marks as well as being beneficial to the skin. You can also use it to get rid of or reduce the appearance of things like dark spots and moles. Simply apply the oil to the affected area and massage it into the skin. Once you have massaged it well wrap the area with a clean cloth and apply heat by using a heating pad for about thirty minutes each time.

Aloe Vera 

Aloe Vera is great for a large number of things. When using this you will notice quick results. Extract the gel from a few smaller aloe vera leaves, apply the gel directly to the affected area and massage it in. Leave it on for a few minutes and then rinse the area with lukewarm water.

Sugar

When it comes to our skin sugar is good for exfoliation. It being naturally coarse can help when it comes to eliminating dead skin cells. In order to use sugar on stretch marks follow this recipe.

Ingredients:

  • 2 tablespoons of sugar
  • Bowl
  • Lemon juice, just a few drops
  • Almond oil, just a few drops

Directions:

  • Take the sugar and place it into the bowl.
  • Add in the lemon juice as well as the almond oil.
  • Stir this thoroughly.
  • Rub the mixture all over the affected area of your skin.
  • Rinse this off with warm water and pat it dry.
  • Do this once a day for a whole month.

These remedies will work wonders on your stretch marks. If you notice any sort of skin irritations coming up which can happen depending on your skin stop using the remedy and try a different one. (Some people have much more sensitive skin than others and not every remedy is good for every person.) If you do this properly over time your stretch marks will be gone!
