How To Remove Stretch Marks Fast!

Stretch Mark CreamUsually a result of pregnancy or following significant weight loss, unsightly stretch marks can mar the skin of the stomach, buttocks, thighs, upper arms and breasts. The damage occurs in the middle layer of the skin called the dermis. With rapid weight gain (such as with pregnancy), the skin is stretched so suddenly that the dermis layer can be damaged. The skin fibres become thin and can sometimes break, leaving behind what we call a stretch mark.

In this post we’ll be looking at some tips on how to remove stretch marks and various remedies that can reduce their visibility.

 

Aloe Vera

Essentially aloe vera is good for the skin no matter what the condition. The nutrients in aloe vera help to regenerate skin cells and keep them healthy, also aiding to return that important elasticity to the skin. Although not a cure-all for stretch marks, regular application of aloe vera will nourish the damaged skin and ultimately help to reduce the visibility of stretch marks. You can apply it directly from an aloe vera plant itself, or purchase pure aloe vera gel from a supermarket or pharmacy.

 

Vitamin E

Vitamin E in its various forms (creams, oils and capsules) has always been effective in helping skin conditions. Known for its scar healing properties, applying a Vitamin E cream to areas of the skin affected by stretch marks will help diminish their appearance. Vitamin E applied to the skin during pregnancy can also help in the prevention of developing stretch marks in the first place.

 

Eggs

Egg whites contain one of the richest sources of protein of just about any food. This technique can be both useful in preventing stretch marks, as well as in the treatment of existing stretch marks. Whip up several egg whites and apply to the area with a brush, allow the eggs to dry, then rinse with fresh water. Repeat every day for at least several weeks for best results. An alternative is to use egg oil, both during pregnancy and after pregnancy to prevent the dreaded stretch marks from appearing.

 

Lemon and Citrus Fruits

Citrus fruits – especially lemon – have a high Vitamin C content, and Vitamin C plays in integral role in the production of collagen in the skin. An increase in collagen will result in a thicker dermis layer, reducing those stretch marks by ‘filling them in’, so to speak. Collagen also increases the skin’s elasticity, thus helping to prevent stretch marks from appearing during sudden weight gain periods like pregnancy.

 

Moisturisers

All moisturisers are designed to keep the skin hydrated, and hydrated skin is much healthier skin. Those enriched with Vitamin C and hyaluronic acid will certainly help to repair damaged skin and go a long way to returning it to its former glory. Also look for moisturisers rich in Vitamin E. All these elements promote all-important collagen regrowth to make skin supple, elastic, line-free and an even texture. In the case of stretch marks you are looking to balance out the thickness and density of the dermis layer, reducing the visibility of stretch marks and that over-extended look of the skin.

 

Oils

Even applying daily applications of olive oil and other healthy oils can not only diminish stretch marks, but also help to prevent their occurrence in the first place. Coconut oil has long been used as a home remedy for wrinkle reduction, and the same theory can be applied to stretch marks. A few other good ones are lavender oil and rose oil.

Cocoa Butter

Cocoa ButterCocoa butter has often been touted as the best substance to prevent stretch marks when pregnant. It’s packed with essential vitamins and oils and other nutrients to both keep the skin healthy and hydrated. The oils in cocoa butter maintain a suppleness to the skin, adding further elasticity so that when the skin stretches with the growth of the baby, the dermis layer tends to expand rather than tear and break. It is also known to be beneficial in the treatment of stretch marks that have occurred either from pregnancy of weight gain.

    I have stretch mark, amazingly not from pregnancy but from when I was about 14 and went through puberty. I can’t tell you how much I Have spent on creams and potions and now in my 40s I don’t expect there is anything that can be done. Can any of your remedies work on really old ones?

      That’s a hard question to answer until you try some of the remedies and see if they work. Even though the stretch marks might be old, there is a good chance you’ll at least see some improvement so they are less noticeable. Have you tried the Skinception cream?

    That is an awesome review on remedies for stretch marks. You can imagine how embarrassing it can be when one has stretch marks on large portion of their body.

    Take for an example, in a public location or gathering like the pool or beach for example, when one is probably required to dress in swim suits, exposing major parts of their body. But thanks for your review on the possible products that can help clear or possibly reduce the sight of these stretch marks

      Many women are very self conscious about stretch marks, especially after child birth, but as I point out in this article there are ways of reducing their appearance. Men can also suffer from stretch marks, usually after sudden weight loss. Thanks for leaving your thoughts.
