Let’s see how to eliminate stretch marks and prevent their appearance with natural remedies that our grandmothers used!
Stretch marks afflict many people, both women and men. These are strips, similar to scars, which appear on the skin, first red and then white, when the tissues are not elastic enough to withstand sudden changes in weight . Most often they appear during pregnancy, during puberty or following a drastic diet. Unfortunately, being in all similar to scars , it is difficult to eliminate stretch marks entirely, but it is possible to prevent their appearance and improve their appearance, making them almost invisible.
Let’s see, therefore, how to remove stretch marks with natural remedies!
How to get rid of red stretch marks
Red stretch marks are the fresh ones, which have just appeared and are therefore easier to eliminate. The most effective natural remedies to make them disappear before they turn white are:
• olive oil , to be massaged daily on damp skin after a shower or bath, as our grandmothers did. Olive oil contains vitamin E, with a regenerating and elasticizing power. In addition, it is quite cheap and easy to find, we all have it at home.
• sweet almond oil , also to be massaged on damp skin every day, both to prevent the appearance of new stretch marks and to improve the appearance of those already present. It is especially recommended for pregnant women and all those who have very delicate skin .
• shea butter . Used daily, it makes the skin softer, elastic and toned. You can find it easily in perfumery and herbal medicine, but check the ingredients well: it must be pure and without additives !
How to get rid of white stretch marks
Getting rid of white stretch marks is difficult, if not impossible . The only thing to do is to exfoliate the skin and moisturize it constantly, to make them less visible. Also, keep in mind that the more you tan, the more they will be visible because the skin will darken, but the stretch marks will not.
An excellent natural scrub for smoothing the skin is based on coffee, cocoa and coconut oil. Mix the coffee grounds, the cocoa powder and the coconut oil, until you get a cream that is not too dry or too liquid and use the scrub in the shower twice a week. Do not forget, then, to hydrate the skin every day, preferably with one of the oils recommended for red stretch marks already.
