I can definitely relate to the frustration of stretch marks and in the process, I have learnt to see the beauty in having them. Almost all women have to deal with this problem at some point in their lives.

There are several natural remedies; below you will find a list of effective tips on how to get rid of stretch marks:

Exfoliation: Dry, dead skin cells build up on the skin every day which makes the skin feel rough and look dull. Exfoliating removes this excess build up of skin cells to reveal fresh, new skin underneath.

Massage: For best results, massage your skin with almond oil. It is rich with Vitamin E, safe for using during pregnancy and helps the skin to develop collagen and elastin, that its needed to repair stretch marks. For those with nut allergies, olive oil is an excellent alternative.

Moisturising: Keeping skin moisturised is an essential part of reducing the appearance of stretch marks and preventing new once from developing. Moisturise daily, concentrating on areas that have stretch marks. You can also add vitamin E capsules into your moisturiser that you use on your stretch marks, because Vitamin E is known to be one of the best natural scar remedies, it helps stimulate collagen production and improves texture and elasticity of the skin.

Aloe Vera: Is most effective in pure aloe vera gel, it needs to be left on the skin for about an hour or two to absorb, so that might see full benefits of the treatment, before rinsing it away with water. Doing this regularly will moisturise the skin and speed up its healing process.

Coffee Grinds With Olive Oil: To stimulate the area where you have stretch marks apply some coffee grinds mixed with olive oil and massage this paste into the problematic section of your skin for about 5 minutes. Coffee grinds will gently exfoliate, stimulate your skin and olive oil will naturally moisturise and soften it.
