Tips to lighten stretch marks

Stretch marks are a form of scarring on the skin with an off-color hue. Usually, rapid weight loss, physical changes or pregnancy can cause these marks on your stomach, thighs, calf area and arms to appear. They are difficult to remove but here are some tips to lighten your stretch marks naturally.


Aloevera offers many beauty benefits. You can take a stem of aloe vera and scoop out the fresh pulp. Rub this gently on the marks for around 10 minutes. Leave it on for another five minutes, then rinse off.

Oil massage:

Oil massage can be a best treatment to lighten stretch marks. For this, Sweet almond oil mixed with wheatgerm and argan oil can help. When this is massaged twice every day on the stomach, from the first trimester of pregnancy, stretch marks are not formed.

Vitamin application:

Vitamin E has antioxidant properties. So it prevents the damage of collagen that can lead to skin damage. Open a few Vitamin E and A capsules and mix both. Apply on the marks till it gets absorbed totally.

Egg white:

The white of the egg is rich in protein and this is useful in dealing with stretch marks. Collect the whites from two eggs, whip gently and apply as a thick layer onto the marks. Once the egg pack has totally dried, rinse it out with water and then moisturise the area by applying some olive oil.
