About 3 years ago, I was a college athlete, and in the best shape of my life. Due to knee injuries and my chosen degree, I had to quit. I guess it was the freedom or maybe just laziness, but I stopped working out and kept eating like I always had. Obviously, my metabolism slowed and the number of calories I was burning dropped severely. I started gaining weight. I went from 115lb of toned muscle to 165lb of flab over the course of these 3 years. I also got stretch marks on my sides and on the front of my stomach. I felt disgusting, so I tried many diets. I didn’t stick with any of them. I also have tried almost everything under the sun to get rid of my stretch marks. I know everyone says that, but I literally did. As a 23 year old, summer was torture. I wanted so badly to go boating with my friends and go to the beach, but my stretch marks were holding me back. I basically did nothing all summer in the water.

The products I used for my stretch marks were cocoa butter, the special cocoa butter for stretch marks, vitamin e oil, vitamin e lotions (like a million different ones), fade creams, scar removers, aloe vera, tamanu body butter, exfoliating, lemon juice on the marks, silicone patches (which faded a small amount), bio-oil, I tried a natural scar removal cream from the health food store...nothing helped! Very recently, I decided to try oil cleansing for my face. I was using a mixture of castor oil and sweet almond oil (both from whole foods). Since I had the oils, I decided to do castor packs with the mixture. The packs helped a little bit. Enough that I was encouraged to keep using the oil. I took a bath with the castor oil and sweet almond oil after skin brushing, and that made a small difference and made my skin silky smooth.

Last night, however, gave the best results. I splashed the stretch marks with warm water then used baking soda and massaged it into the stretch marks. I had read this is similar to a microdermabrasion. I did that until the skin was a little pink. Then I took a hot shower and skin brushed. After the shower, I heated a mixture of 1 part sweet almond oil, 1 part jojoba oil, ½ part castor oil, and a couple drops of tea tree oil in the microwave (after a minute it was pretty hot to the touch so be careful!). I massaged this oil into the stretch marks. This morning, I woke up to see the stretch marks on my left side almost completely faded away and the marks on my stomach and right side are faded quite a bit too. I was stoked! I should also mention that yesterday I started oil pulling, which may or may not be a factor.

I am going to stick with this and will update if anything significant happens. I know different products work for different people, but I think this is worth a shot. Castor oil and sweet almond oil are amazing and I hope it helps someone else out there!

I have used a cream for stretch marks that I got from an online health food store. It is formulated just for stretch marks and it worked great. I had stretch marks on my shoulders, pectorals and tummy from being a teenager and then massive weight gain. I got it from meghanglavin.myitworks.com
