Stretch marks are those lines, which I would like to call fine lines, but they are not, that appear on your skin when your body is experiencing weight fluctuations. The skin becomes too stretched, and the tissues break, causing the appearance of white signs. These usually appear on the belly, hips, and thighs, even on the arms when we get way too fat and lose weight suddenly.
Fortunately, you can reduce the appearance of stretch marks on your body, using natural remedies like the ones below.
Eggs are some of the best sources of protein, but when it comes to treating stretch marks you only need to use the egg-white.
How to proceed:
Mix well the egg-white with a fork. That’s all!
How to apply?
Clean the area with water, and then apply the egg whites using a makeup brush. Let the egg whites dry before you rinse. Apply olive oil to hydrate the area and to speed-up healing.
Aloe Vera Gel
Another treatment you can use is aloe vera gel because it has calming and healing properties that can repair skin tissues, leaving the skin silky-smooth.
To use this remedy, just cut the plant leaves into small squares and place them in a container.
Put the container in the refrigerator and let it stand there for 1 hour. Than take one aloe vera square and apply it to the affected area using circular motion. Let it work for an hour, and then take a shower to remove the gel from your body.
Repeat this procedure daily and you will notice great improvements.
You can use white sugar to make stretch marks disappear due to its exfoliating properties. Exfoliating removes dead skin cells, so new and healthy skin cells to appear.
Mix 1 tablespoon of sugar and 1 of almond oil plus a few drops of lemon juice.
Mix them well, and then apply the mixture to areas where you have stretch marks. Carefully massage for a few minutes before taking a bath or a shower. Apply this remedy daily to improve the aspect of your stretch marks.
