Vascular laser for body stretch marks, fractional laser therapy, abdominoplasty (tummy tuck) etc. There are many chemical and surgical treatments. However, these treatments have risks and are often quite expensive. We will also talk about more affordable and effective treatment methods that you can apply at home.
Oil massage keeps the skin moist, which increases its elasticity and promotes rapid healing of scars. Make your own moisturizer by mixing a few drops of your favorite natural oils with a carrier oil.
Massage the problem area with this oil for a few minutes. Leave the oil on the area for as long as possible. Apply this oil mixture regularly twice a day.
You can make a moisturizer by mixing almond oil or grape with coconut oil. Another blend suggestion is evening primrose, hemp seed and lavender essential oils, as well as castor or jojoba oil.
If you want to get rid of stretch marks, another method you can apply is organic cocoa butter. Massage the cracked area with cocoa butter twice a day. You can do the same with shea butter.
Both cocoa butter and shea butter are easily absorbed by the skin. It also moisturizes the skin and renews skin cells. Shea butter also contains vitamins A and E, which increase skin elasticity and prevent dryness.
Aloe vera gel promotes healing and shows noticeable results within a few days. It also soothes and moisturizes the skin. However, this remedy only works for early stage stretch marks.
Cut the aloe vera leaf and extract the gel. Apply to the affected area and massage until well absorbed by your skin. Do not rinse. Apply twice a day.
Vaseline is an occlusive agent, meaning it traps moisture in the skin. Thus, it heals dry and tense skin. Apply to stretch marks and massage for 5-10 minutes. Do this every night before going to bed and see the results.
Dry brushing stimulates blood and lymph circulation. It also helps to eliminate toxins in the area more easily. Dry brushing increases the functionality of the sebaceous and sweat glands and removes dead skin cells. This gives you smooth, soft and spotless skin.
You will need a body brush for this step. Make sure that the bristles of the brush you use are soft and natural. Gently brush the affected area with the dry brush in circular upward motions.
Continue brushing for 5-6 minutes. Take a shower and apply a good moisturizer. Repeat this every day before taking a bath.
The enzymes in the egg white increase the elasticity of the skin and thus cause the stretch marks to disappear over time. You will need 1-2 egg whites and a pastry brush for this step.
Lightly whisk the egg whites and apply with a brush to the affected areas. Let it dry. Rinse with cold water and moisturize.
Add a few drops of coconut oil or almond oil to the egg white for more effective results. Apply daily for best results.
Caffeine in coffee beans can easily penetrate your skin and stimulate circulation and rejuvenate skin cells.

Pour 1 cup of apple cider vinegar and 1/2 cup of water into a spray bottle. Spray on stretch marks, do not rinse overnight. Shower in the morning and then apply a good moisturizer. Repeat this every night before going to bed.
Note: If you have sensitive skin, add a glass of water to a glass of apple cider vinegar. Further dilution will reduce the strength of the vinegar.
