The stretch marks on the belly appear after pregnancy or losing weight too fast. They can also appear on the hips and thighs, and a lot of women suffer from it. However, there is a way to get rid of them or reduce them!

Here are some recommendations on removal of stretch marks:

Use moisturizer: using a moisturizer is a good idea for any time of life, not just during pregnancy. The skin will be moister and stronger, and there will be a lower risk of stretch marks. If the stretch marks have begun showing and you want them to not expand further, apply a homemade cream made from oils and Aloe Vera.


– one tablespoon (10 gr.) of wheat germ oil

– one tablespoon (25 gr.) of olive oil

– one tablespoon (20 gr.) of Aloe Vera gel


Mix the ingredients together and apply to the stretch marks. Clean it off after 15 minutes.

Massage with egg yolk

Eggs are rich in protein and are highly recommended for shiny hair and stretch mark removal. Eggs are also recommended during pregnancy because they prevent the formation of scars. Crack an egg and clean the area daily.

Use essential oils

Essential oils make the skin beautiful. They can also help with stretch marks. This home remedy will certainly reduce them, but it won’t eliminate them completely.

It’s important to know that essential oils must be combined with olive or almond oil to be applied to the skin, or else they will cause irritation. You can mix them with your favorite cream as well.

The best essential oils for use are lavender, indian frankincense, pink, rosehip, geranium and myrrh oil.

Tips for stretch mark removal

The fully formed stretch marks can be reduced with homemade remedies and healthier habits.

Protect the skin from the sun

Stretch marks are red in the start, but the tone fades with time. Not protecting your skin from the damaging UV rays will make it harder to conceal the stretch marks. Solar radiation weakens the skin and makes them look even worse. If you go to the beach, apply a sunscreen with at least SPF 15. Choose one that contains Aloe Vera.

Consume more vitamin C

Vitamin C is found in citrus fruits and is very important for our health. It prevents diseases and increases collagen production, which gives firmness and flexibility to the tissues.
