STRETCH MARKS It is very common that almost every woman in a specific time of their lives will develop stretch marks.Others simply have a generic predisposition to stretch marks and get them everywhere and others, never develop stretch marks at all.

They look like reddish lines across the body, and with time they will turn white. In pregnancy it is common to have them since the skin is stretching very rapidly to accommodate the baby and the milk stored in the breasts.

Once the stretch marks develop they will stay with you forever; but with time they will be less noticeable. The only way to avoid stretch marks is preventing them.

We recommend:

It is very important to exercise in order to get rid of stretch marks; toning your muscles helps your skin to remain firm thus preventing stretch marks.

Make sure your diet contains plenty of protein and foods rich in Vitamin C and Vitamin E, they promote good tissue growth.

Massaging your body with olive oil or Vitamin E may help.

You can also try this homemade recipe: Mix one ounce of carrier oil (try avocado, sweet almond, jojoba, they are the best) with seven drops of lavender and five drops of chamomile.

Apply cocoa butter and/ or elastin cream throughout the body as directed on label. These are very good for stretch marks.

Here is another good recipe:

  • 1/2 cup virgin olive oil.

  • 1/4 cup aloe vera gel.

  • liquid from 6 capsules of Vitamin E.

  • liquid from 4 capsules of Vitamin A.

  • Mix all the ingredients together in a blender. After that pour the mixture into a jar and store it in the fridge. Apply the oil externally all over the places where the stretch marks commonly appear (abdomen, hips, thighs and breasts). If you do this consistently every day, you may prevent stretch marks.
