Hello Everyone, I hope you were able to learn more on stretch marks from our last session. Honestly, stretch marks can be very frustrating, irritating and annoying. When the skin is overstretched due to various reasons such as losing or gaining weight suddenly, the production of collagen is disrupted. Collagen is the main protein that is found in the connective tissue and it is essential to keep the skin taut. When the production process is disrupted, the skin lacks the required support and will end up tearing. This eventually results into a scar which is known as stretch marks.
Below are the concluding natural remedies for stretch marks.
Apply some castor oil to the affected area and gently massage the area in a circular motion for five to ten minutes.
Wrap the area with a cotton cloth. Apply some heat to the affected area using a hot water bottle for thirty minutes. Repeat this process daily until you notice a positive result.

Aloe vera is very effective in treatment of many skin problems. Its healing and soothing properties can also be used to get rid of stretch marks.
Rub aloe vera gel on the affected area.
Leave it for fifteen minutes. Then rinse the skin with lukewarm water.
