Gently massage in a circular motion for about 2 minutes.
Allow at least 5 minutes to fully penetrate into your skin, before putting on clothes.
Apply twice a day until you see results.
- Use Coconut Oil
Coconut oil increases blood flow to your skin, and produces collagen fibers, which is important for treating stretch marks.
It also helps your skin retain its elasticity and suppleness.
Here’s how to use coconut oil to remove your stretch marks:
Cut a coconut in half, and use a scraper to extract the flesh.
Chop the flesh into small pieces
Shred them in a blender at medium speed. Add some hot water if necessary.
Pour into a jar over a strainer.
Leave the jar in the fridge overnight. (This allows separation of coconut milk and oil)
Scoop out the curd from the jar. (This is the solidified coconut oil)
Place them in a saucepan, turn on the stove for low-medium heat.
While stirring frequently, cook for 1 hour.
Let it cool down for 15 minutes, and pour over a coffee filter to extract oil.
Apply this oil twice a day on stretch marks until you see improvement.
- Get Rid of Your Stretch Marks with Retinolhow to apply
Retinol is another fast way to get rid of your stretch marks.
But what is Retinol exactly?
Retinol is a compound found in Vitamin A, which produces collagen that is needed to repair your stretch marks.
Retinol also works great if you got your stretch marks recently.
However, excess Vitamin A may not be safe to use while your pregnant.
So if you’re pregnant, consult your doctor before using Retinol.
So with that out of the way,
Here’s how to apply Retinol to remove stretch marks:
Get a Retinol cream.
Apply a small amount on areas of stretch marks.
Apply once every other day in the first week.
Apply once a day in the second week.
From week 3, apply twice a day, morning and night after a warm shower.
Continue application until you see a result.
