Stretch marks are one of those things that you may or may not be particularly bothered by; but if for whatever reason you want to reduce the appearance of your stretch marks, read on!
One thing to note is that everybody is different. Some people may have stretch marks due to hormonal issues. Others may have them due to reaching the age of puberty. Many women get stretch marks due to pregnancy. And, other people may have them due to excessive weight gain.
The other thing to note is that both men and women can have stretch marks – it is not only women that see them.
So, if you are part of the many who’ve embarked on the journey to reduce the signs of cellulite, and the creams and lotions have not been working, here’s a DIY natural remedy to try with ingredients from the kitchen!
DIY Stretch Marks Lotion
2-4 drops of essential oils (optional)
1 tbsp almond oil
¼ coffee grounds
3 tsp lemon juice
3 tsp sea salt
- Mix all the ingredients together until it becomes pasty
- Massage the mixture onto the areas of the body where the stretch marks are visible
- Dip a towel in hot water and take it out. Wrap it around the area where the paste has settled into the skin
- After five minutes remove the towel
- Rinse the body parts with warm water then apply moisturiser
Combined with the warmth of water, coffee grounds and oils, the affected areas of stretch marks are stimulated; whilst the lemon juice fades the scars and lightens the skin.
You don’t need to spend a lot of money on creams and lotions that may not be doing the job well. Use this effective, homemade and inexpensive way to fade and remove stretch marks, so that you can finally show off that beach body without feeling uncomfortable ever again.
Of course nothing works when you do it once. It takes time. Do this two to three times a week to see results. Be patient and keep making and using this homemade lotion to achieve what you believed to be unachievable.
