Stretch Marks, also called striae, happen when your skin changes shape rapidly due to growth or weight gain. They are not a sign that anything is wrong with your health.
Both men and women can get stretch marks. The two most common times in life to get stretch marks are Pregnancy and Puberty.
At first, a stretch mark will appear as a thin red or purple line on your skin that takes on a different texture than the surrounding skin layer. Eventually, most stretch marks fade and take on a lighter or almost translucent colouring, and become shiny.
To get rid of stretch mark follow this remedy:
Vitamin A is referred to as a retinoid. Retinoids make skin appear smoother and more youthful.
Pure Aloe Vera is both a natural healing agent and a skin softener. This makes it an ideal home remedy to try for stretch marks. It’s advisable to apply pure aloe vera from a plant to your stretch marks daily after your shower.
Coconut oil has been studied for its healing properties and was found in rats to reduce the time it takes for skin wounds to heal, therefore, it is advisable to apply virgin coconut oil to your stretch marks each day to reduce the red appearance.
Laser therapy, needling, and microdermabrasion are also three clinical treatments for stretch marks.
