Stretch marks can appear anywhere on the body, but they are usually more associated with the marks that can appear on the abdomen after childbirth. They are caused when the skin is stretched, relatively rapidly, and the collagen in the skin is weakened as a result. While pregnancy is the most common cause of stretch marks, they can also occur as a result of rapid growth in a child, or by dramatic weight gain or loss. Stretch marks are perfectly natural and they won’t cause you any health problems, but, if you want to reduce the appearance of stretch marks, here are ten natural ways to do it.
1. Lemon juice
Lemon juice is a really simple remedy for stretch marks and it will help to fade other types of scars and blemishes too. It is naturally acidic and it has a mild bleaching effect. Rub some fresh lemon juice into your stretch marks and leave the juice to sit for about ten minutes. With repeated application, you should start to see the stretch marks fade.
2. Egg whites
Another good tip on how to get rid of stretch marks is to use egg whites. Egg whites are a great way to nourish the skin with protein and bring back some of its elasticity. Whip up the whites of two eggs and then apply it thickly to the affected areas of skin. Leave the egg whites to dry completely, and then, you can wash it off with lukewarm water. Repeat that process once a day for the best results.….READ MORE ON THE NEXT PAGE
