15 Comments for the Stretch Marks Home Remedy


To all the females out there, there IS an at-home remedy to use to get rid of/fade stretch marks.

I've had stretch marks ever since I stopped doing karate (I was about 12). Being fit does help keep stretch marks away, but as soon as you stop for a long period of time, it's almost 89% positive that you will get stretch marks. I was embarrassed to show off my legs during the summer when I went swimming, so I bought the shorts from Walmart (the ones found in the swimming section). Those worked for a while to hid them, but my friends kept on making fun of me for not 'shaving down there.' I never told my mom because I was too embarrassed so I googled how to get rid of stretch marks.

A lot of the stuff is store bought, but one at home (free, unless you don't have the rub & plastic wrap) remedy that helps quickly is the vapour rub by vix. It doesn't matter what kind, as long as it's the gel thing in the sphere container. You also need to put pastic wrap on your legs (wherever the rub was put). *WRAPPING GUIDES DOWN BELOW* Once your done that, wear tights (or tight pants, I personally recommend tights. After this step, you can go to sleep. If you do it during the day, I find that moving around a lot slows down the process and isn't as helpful. It's best to do this before bed. (The most time it should take is 10 minutes. For me it takes 5).


For legs, wrap it in a circular motion until you've reached a full circle.

For stomachs, do the same.

For bums, do the same but if you go to the bathroom at night you will need to reapply ONLY the plastic wrap unless you wish to do the remedy all over again.

I'm now 13 (going on 14 in a few months) and my mum enrolled me to do swimming classes so during high school I can volunteer at the pools in my area. It is currently Monday, March 24, and did the remedy At 4pm after school, and now 7 hours later I'm already seeing a difference. I reapplied it before I went to bed (with a new wrap & new coat of vix) and I can honestly say it's working. Hopefully by Friday the stretch marks will be clear so I go to my classes confidently and not have to worry about trying to hid the marks on my legs.

*PLEASE NOTE: I think that to keep the marks away, repeating this remedy every week after the marks are gone should help keep them away. Vapour rub isn't expensive and neither is plastic rap.

I hope this remedy works for you as it is currently working for me.

If having stubborn stretch match try to Exfoliate your skin. Treat the stretch marks with an exfoliating cream .
. As your remove dead and dying skin cells with an exfoliating treatment, new skin cells naturally form to take their place, this worked well for me . Learn more here:
