White Sugar

White sugar is an excellent Exfoliator and its granules help the skin in becoming smoother. You can imagine the results of using white sugar on your stretch marks if mixed with the right elements. For best results, mix white sugar in lemon juice along with almost oil until it dissolves. Rub this mixture on your stretch marks for 10 minutes every day before you take a bath. After a few weeks you will see your skin colour becoming more even and looking the same.

Olive Oil

Olive oil has vitamins A, D and E in abundance which are the necessary nutrients and anti-oxidants  that nourish your skin. To get rid of stretch marks easily, warm olive oil and massage your stretch marks for 30 minutes every day. Massaging with olive oil improves blood flow and this reduces the presence of stretch marks on the body. For better and quicker results you mix olive oil with water and vinegar and use it as a night cream for your stretch marks.

Potato Juice

Potatoes are rich in minerals and nutrients that are essential for the development and repair of skin cells. The best way to use potato is to either cut it in slices or boil it to get potato starch. If you prefer using the slices then all you need to do is rub the slices over your stretch marks for about 10 minutes every day and make sure that the juice from the potato slice covers the affected area immediately. It is important for the juice to dry completely before you wash it off. If you wish to use potato starch, then boil the potatoes to get potato starch and apply on your stretch marks for an hour and wash it off with lukewarm water. You will see your stretch marks getting lighter as time goes by.

Along with following the above tips you also need to drink a lot of water to keep your body hydrated and your skin moist. Now that you know the easiest ways possible of getting rid of ugly and uncomfortable stretch marks, it is time to take charge!

All you are doing is reducing the appearance of stretch marks. You are not repairing the damaged tissues.

Six pregnancies! I tried many things and found some amazing secrets to prevent them. I'm not gonna give specifics bc I'm busy now but plan to benefit from my findings in the near future, Drink lots of water. The skin stretched needs natural oils from the inside and moisture on the outside.... find foods with natural oils such as fish, seeds and VEGGIES! Stay active and decrease your salt intake as it dries skin and makes it more prone to tear. And last but not least " Scrubs" it takes the dead skin and moisturizers for days!! Natural oils and brown sugar....(coconut \U0001f44d)

I'm the only one who uses coconut extract also the only one who got no stretchmarks in the family. I work outside our country most of the time goes back home during pregnancy and out again. No time to share it with my family .This is not the only experience l have with herbal meds. I have been operated for my ductal carcinoma more than 13years ago l felt my healthy living plus our local herbs helps me to recover well.

I used Palmers Coco Butter lotion every time I got out of the shower while pregnant. Two babies. No stretch marks! I don't know if they use the same formula today though; so I would recommend organic coconut lotion today.

Yes plenty my other sisters do have too. Not really sure if coconut did that great job but perhaps new moms can try it too and hope they will share the results to help others.

You can't heal stretch marks. The tissue is damaged. Some of mine are an inch across of very thin skin where the tissue pulled away from itself while pregnant. Some of my stretch marks were so bad my skin split open and bled.

Except my "stretch marks" from pregnancy are actually scars not marks. You can't ever pull that skin back together. All I can hope for is to use these things to lighten them up and keep the skin as healthy as possible.
