Stretch marks can be a real bother – bringing down your self confidence and limiting the types of clothing you can wear without having to expose them to the world.
Stretch marks are usually results of rapid weight gain and weight loss such as in pregnancy, in puberty and in some cases, due to hereditary factors. Some stretch marks assume a deep red color while others are a tad bit lighter than the person’s skin tone.
They usually show up in the belly and hip regions, arms, thighs and back. Here are a few natural ways to lighten and eventually get rid of stretch marks.
- Drink lots of water. Hydrating your body can greatly help detoxify the whole body including the skin and also brings back skin elasticity. Experts suggest drinking eight to ten glasses of water in a day to keep the body well hydrated.
- Cocoa butter has been a popular option for people who wish to get rid of stretch marks. It has been so popular to the point of it being one of the most common and vastly available commercial product for stretch marks in the market together with shea butter. Cocoa butter is said to lighten stretch marks – making them less visible somehow.
- Another home remedy to get rid of stretch marks is the use of egg whites. Using egg whites of two eggs, whip it using a fork and apply a thick layer onto the skin with stretch marks. Leave it on until it dries out and rinse off with cold water. Do the regimen once in a matter of two weeks for visible results.
