One of the most common problems that women face after their pregnancies is, stretch marks. Not just them, but men and women both get these, say after a sudden weight loss or so. Most people do for an allopathic treatment, which can have side effects on the skin and body.
Why not rather look at a few natural ways to make stretch marks disappear?
One way to have your stretch marks fade away till they disappear completely, is to massage the area with cocoa butter, preferably at night. You can use it while you’re pregnant as well as afterwards, and after a period of time, you will start seeing results.
Lemon Juice and Cucumber
Another way is to mix cucumber juice and lime juice in equal parts, pour it onto the area of your skin with stretch marks, and have the skin completely soak it – which will take about 10 minutes or so. Use warm water to rinse it off of you. It is the acidic quality of lime and the coolness of cucumber that first heal the scars, and then provide it with a soothing effect to keep the skin looking fresh.
We know how aloe vera is supposed to be a boon for the skin, but many don’t know about its skin tissue regenerative property. By taking gel from a freshly cut aloe vera leaf, massaging it onto the part with stretch marks, taking it off after about half an hour, and repeating it once daily, you can easily get rid of these marks.
A little more lengthy but sureshot way to be done with stretch marks is, massaging it daily with castor oil. The area with stretch marks is dry, and in need of moisture, therefore. Castor oil has healing and skin smoothening properties, which on constantly feeding the skin, provide it with umpteen amount of nourishment.
None of these methods will help you reduce these marks in a few days or so; the process takes time, irrespective of whichever method you use. Instead of having a false hope for a miraculously fast healing, you will need to be patient throughout the time period. Nevertheless, the marks will in some time, go away.
