Shea and cocoa butter has work the best for me. I am 14 and have had twins. After the pregnancy the stretch marks got worse. I had searched for many remedies to help the problem. I used Equate Cocoa Butter and Palmers Shea Butter for Stretch Marks. In the morning, use the Shea butter when you wake up, and at night after a shower and your ready for bed use the Cocoa butter. I did this for about a week and noticed the results. Even after the stretch marks seem 'gone' don't quit this cycle. It keeps your skin healthy and those stretch marks gone.
hi there, im 20yrs and am feed up with paying losts of money for products that just DONT work for stretchmarks. I have made my own very effective recipe to reduce apperence of stretchmarks to vitually invisiable and even skin tone so no more ugly ridges in your skin. Now you may think my recipe has to many ingreidants and is way to costly how ever i have got most of my PURE ingrediants off ebay for far less than those expensive use-less so called miricle creams.It is a MUST to buy 100% PURE products from my ingrediants list as they do not contain harmful chemicals that harm your skin and make matters worse.
Ingrediant list: Sugar, Coffee grins, Bi card soda, fresh Aloe vera plant, Argan oil, Vitamin E oil, Emu oil, Vitamin C powder and Cocoa butter. Please buy Pure Oils and cocoa butter as well as high quality Vitamin C, if you cheap out the products you buy are not as effective and may make marks worse.
STEP ONE: Mix together coffee, sugar, bi-carb, aloe vera and enough water to make a paste. Only enough to cover the areas you want to treat! Massage onto areas and leave for 10-15 mins. Wash off in shower.
STEP TWO: Mix SMALL amounts( as a little goes along way!) of Argan oil, Vitamin E oil, Emu oil, Cocoa butter and Vitamin C powder into a consistant liquid then use as a mosturiser.
Do both steps daily for two weeks and love your skin again.
I'm 17 & I have a daughter . I was 107 pounds when I got pregnant & went to 168 in a matter of 2 months . My stomach looked like it was getting ripped open . Well needless to say , I HAD horrible stretch marks from my stomach to my boobs to my thighs . It was gross . I wouldn't even wear a bikini . So I tried something & it worked . My remedy is
1/2 a cup of baking soda
1/4 a cup of water
a little bit of cocoa butter with shea
& vitamin E oil ( i have a bottle of it it's small & it's 5$ at walmart )
& i mixed it all up & left it on my stomach for 30 minutes & my horrible purple/black stretch marks was almost my skin color . After doing this for a month , they was gone !
1 cup baking soda
1/4 cup water
Clean and clear body wash
Pour one cup backing soda in bowl mix in water till a wet sand consistency.then add body wash just a lil eyeball it. It will be watery. Before you go to sleep put a thin layer on (make sure it doesn't run off) and put the rest in a holding mechanism or in fridge. I did this for a month and mine are gone.
Never had stretch marks until I had my son then my body exploded with them. I never tried to do anything about them because I always herd there was no way to remove them. After taking a skin care coarse in college i made a daily routine that has worked for me... I exfoliate using white sugar I just take a cup into the shower with me and message it on the spots that need it for 5 mins. After the shower I took vitamin c tablet and crushed them up into powder ( you can get at any drug store) and I mixed it in with my aveeno non scented lotion and rubbed it completely in the areas then took a teaspoon or two of olive oil and rubbed it in also. The exfoliation helps remove dead skin cells which speeds upthe production of new cells, the vitamin c helps aid the elasticity of your skin same with the lotion and lastly the oil is great for keeping the hydration in your skin. Repeat the process everyday or as much as needed. I am pleased with the results and I hope it can help someone else!
Hello, I'm 21 and I have had stretch marks that are lighter than my body since I was 15. I had my first baby last year so I got a few on my belly as well. I found a remedy that actually works for me and hopefully it will help someone else! You can do this how often you like, but I have a full-time job so I only have time to do it before I go to bed. First, I take a couple of cotton balls, soak them with 100% lemon juice, and cover my stretch marks with them. I flipped out the first time I did it because it looked like my stretch marks got lighter, but in reality, you can't change the color of your stretch marks(that's why tanning and covering them with makeup don't work). The lemon juice lightens the skin around the marks to give you more of an even skin tone. Once the juice dries, I cover them with aloe vera gel(I use a generic brand called 'great value' cuz I'm cheap like that, and it works just fine). When the gel dries, I put on my jammies and go to bed. In the morning I wash it off, and then I repeat the next night. After a week, mine are almost invisible...and I've had these babies for years. So hopefully this will help someone into a bikini this summer ;) Let me know if it works!
Hey guys I am also 14 and I have had stretch marks since 14, after I quit swimming. I realized that after I quit I started to gain a ton of wait, around like 10 pounds, and after awhile I started to get stretch marks, at first they were just on my right leg a bit, but have spread to my left leg, butt, hips and even my chest :O. When I was doing some research one day, I found an amazing home remedy, but you have to stay committed to it!! Even though it takes awhile, when I first started it, I was doing it probably every two days, and I saw improvement, but after awhile I was just doing it when I felt like it, and then they started getting worse again. But here is what I tried, it works amazing if you commit to it, try and do it everyday, but if you cant try it as much as possible.
FIRST STEP (Very important) EXFOLIATE!
Exfoliate around the area/s in cirles and after 10mins or so, start exfoliating the area in the direction towards the heart. (e.g. From your stomach you stroke the exfoliating brush upwards. From the Arms, across ways.)
Okay this may sound funny but the Vicks Vaporub REALLY WORKS! Ok, now don’t leave just yet. I think I know why this may be. It has something to do with the ingredients, Eucylyptus and the menthol. And I think there may also be a small amount of Emu oil in there also.
I know a constant strong smell of the stuff isn’t pleasant but grab a dollup of the stuff and rub it in circles but mostly in the opposite direction the stretch marks are. (On my stomach, they’re vertical so I rub it horizontally). You don’t need to go fast or hard but go firmly making sure you concentrate on one spot! Do this for 15-30 min. Does seem long but you won’t notice if you do this while watching something, and resting your arms during commercial breaks. Lol.
Here comes the Olive Oil. I measure about the size of the lid and rub it on all my stretch mark areas And yes, on top of the Vicks Vaporub. Rub it in till the skin loses the oil shine. That’s how you know it’s being absorbed. Don’t go overboard on this part, cos you will be repeating this step.
The Gooey Part. Lol. Crack an egg. Throw the yolk and keep the white. Apply on the area you’ve just treated. No need to massage in really, but apply with circular movement. Wait for the yolk to dry. Sit on a towel perhaps if you’re worried about the runnyness. But really, it’s not that bad if you’ve applied it in the circular motions like I said. May take another 5 min to dry depending on the area size.
COLD SHOWER! AHHHH! Yes ladies, a cold shower. This is where you wash off all the Vicks, Oil and the Goo! Lol. Use a strong, almost rough loofah (A coarse, fibrous cylindrical object used like a bath sponge for washing.) on the spots. It’s like another mild exfoliation. But also to make sure you’ve gotten rid of the gooyness ;). After that you can put the water on a bit warmer and use your bodywash and whatever you usually do.
Mosturise. With a stronger moisturiser. Something that will keep your skin very hydrated. The natural and very GREAT product to use is… YOU GUESSED IT! OLIVE OIL! But also if you do not want to use that again, you can use any type of moisturizing cream, try and stay more natural, the stuff I like to use is Vaseline intensive rescue extra strength, unfragranced .
And don’t forget to drink you eight glasses of water a day or as much as you can. This will help keep skin hydrated and in the long run, will prevent wrinkles setting on faster.
Give it a try guys. Does take time but is worth it. Well, I have tried this routine and I have seen great results!!! No joke! I can feel that the skin has smoothed out much more than the left. Still a bit bumpy but I’m sure in time will smooth out for good! With all the exfoliation!
If I had pictures I would prove it!
I am positive it will work if you do practise this every night and make it a ritual. It worked for me! Give it a go and tell me how you’ve gone. What’s your story. =)
and if you want to use a product, even though this is a natural site, try TriLASTIN-SR Intensive Stretch Mark Complex, it was on the tyra show, I have not tried it yet but people who have; have had 100% results. Hope this will help and sorry about the super long comment. LOL! I posted this twice, once on someone elses comment and once on here haha ;)
