The stretch marks are a skin blemish that is most evident in the abdominal area, on the breasts, on the thighs, on the arms, and on the buttocks. Generally they appear pink or red, then the red ones give life to white stretch marks, the most difficult to fight. Fortunately, nature is also our ally in the field of cosmetics. In this regard, let's see how to mitigate the stretch marks with natural remedies.
Stretch marks natural remedies
cut a medium-sized potato into thick slices then rub a slice gently on the stretch marks for at least 5 minutes. Make sure that the liquid from the potato covers the entire area affected by the stretch mark. Let the juice dry then wash off with warm water.
We will use sugar to exfoliate the skin. Mix a tablespoon of white sugar with a little almond oil then add a few drops of lemon juice. Mix everything until you get a spreadable compound then apply on the stretch marks. Gently rub the mixture into your skin for about 10 minutes every morning before taking a shower. Repeat this for at least a month.
Massage the affected area for at least 5 minutes with slightly heated olive oil. Let it act for half an hour then rinse
Rub the gel obtained from the leaves of the aloe vera plant directly on the affected skin area, let it act for a few minutes then rinse with warm water.
Alternatively, you can prepare a mixture with two tablespoons of aloe vera gel, the oil obtained from ten vitamin E capsules, and the oil from five vitamin A capsules. Mix these three ingredients well then spread the mixture on the skin until fully absorbed. Repeat this every morning for at least a month.
Carefully massage the area affected by stretch marks with lemon juice, using circular movements. Let the lemon juice soak into the skin and act for at least 10 minutes before rinsing off with warm water.
Alternatively, you can mix cucumber juice with lemon juice in equal quantities. Apply the mixture on the stretch marks and let it act as suggested before.
