Stretch marks are one of those facts of life we are know will happen but it doesn't make us like them any more. They creep up your body and point out the areas you were already a little bit self conscious about and we would very much like it to stop.
Instead of stressing over where they are coming from, how about you just use one of these 5 tricks to make them go away? They are all easy to do and work great so you can take care of your skin the way it deserves!
1. Olive Oil
Olive oil has been going through a bit of a weird time in the news after they discovered some fake versions on the market but if you have one of the good ones then use that to rub all over those stretch marks 3 or 4 times a day for about a month and you will see a huge improvement.
2. Aloe Vera Gel
There really is nothing this stuff can't do. If you rub Aloe Vera Gel onto stretch marks and let it sit for at least 20 minutes once or twice a day you will see them vanish over time. Improvements can be seen in just a few days and after a month they will be practically gone!
3. Baking Soda and Lemon Juice
This one takes a bit more effort. Mix 1 teaspoon of baking soda with the juice from 1 lemon and then rub it on the affected area. Wrap it in plastic for a half hour and then rinse it off. You will notice a difference right away, but after a few treatments the stretch marks should vanish completely.
4. Lemon Juice and Flour Paste
You can use lemon juice with flour with a little bit of water to form a paste. Spread the paste on the affected area and let dry. Use circular motions once dry to get it off then rinse. Repeat once a day to see best results.
5. Vicks Vapo Rub
This stuff is really magical. Rub it on the stretch marks and the menthol will increase blood flow to help remove the stretch marks. Apply it once a day for at least 20 minutes before removing it.
