Tips For Reducing The Appearance Of Your Stretch Marks

by Wanda Chambers

There's a good chance that you're going to leave puberty with some sort of stretch marks, regardless of what your gender is. You might have stretch marks on your hips or on your chest from developing your body or you might have stretch marks left over from your last growth spurt. If you are feeling self-conscious about these stretch marks, here are some tips for helping reduce their appearance so that you can feel more confident.

1. Try Egg Whites

One option is to take two eggs out of your freezer and extract the whites for them. Throw the yolks away. Whip the whites together using a fork. Use an old toothbrush or an old makeup brush to apply a thick layer of the egg whites to the area on your body on which you would like to reduce the appearance of stretch marks. Allow the egg whites to sit on this area until they have totally dried. When they dry, you know that all of the amino acids and protein that they contained have been absorbed by your skin. These proteins will help your skin become stronger and more supple, making your stretch marks appear fainter. When you are done rinsing off the egg whites, rub some moisturizer on the area in order to increase the suppleness of your skin.

2. Try Sugar and Lemon Juice

Pour a cup of plain, white sugar into a mixing bowl. Then, add two tablespoons of lemon juice. Finally, mix everything together until a thick paste is formed. Once you have the paste, start rubbing it on the afflicted areas. The sugar in this mixture will allow you to exfoliate your skin, getting rid of any dead skin that you might have on the surface and revealing newer skin, making your stretch marks appear lighter. The lemon juice contains acid that will help bleach your stretch marks so that their color more closely matches your skin. After you are done scrubbing the mixture into your skin, gently wipe it off with warm water and a washcloth. Do this every day for maximum efficacy.

3. Try Aloe Vera

Go to your local pharmacy and pick up a cream that contains aloe vera. Then, rub it on the afflicted area each night before you go to bed. The intense moisturizing properties of the aloe vera will help your skin become more supple and heal more quickly, decreasing the appearance of your stretch marks.

You can also buy anti stretch cream at your local store.
