  • Remove stretch marks

    Hi everyone out there! I gave birth recently to a chubby baby boy. And now i want to get rid of my stretch marks. Have tried all kinds of creams and solutions. Can anyone tell me some natural treatment which i can try at home please?

  • Unfortunately you may never completely get rid of those stretch marks. These are caused by the stretch and breakdown of collagen under the skin. Collagen may not return to its natural state and the skin that lays on top will not revert to it's pre-stretched state as well. You can minimize them with a good essential oil, collagen treatments at your doctors and exercise will tighten up the stomach muscles and the skin.
    My opinion, you got them from something wonderful. Don't let them dictate your life, wear them with pride.
    That which we forget may as well never really happened.

    • Definitely follow gofitmantra's advice. Unfortunately, you cannot get rid of stretchmarks completely, but you can reduce the look of them. Cocoabutter is also very good at dealing with them. Do apply regularly and they should be reduced.

        • Claret is right. You did get them from something wonderful. If you are still bothered by them, then you could use bio oil. Most chemists sell it.
