Trying to heal and fade stretch marks should not come with a hefty price. It also means that the remedies used should not be filled with unpronounceable ingredients that can make your skin more irritated than it already is. If you want to find natural treatments and remedies for your stretch marks, you should look no further than your own kitchen and home. Remember that each remedy or treatment may not work for each individual. If you have sensitive skin, you should also take that into consideration before trying a treatment, natural or not. Speak to your physician if you have any questions or concerns about any of these remedies.
- Make a scrub with honey, salt, and glycerin. This scrub is helpful to remove dead skin cells to help reveal and promote new skin growth. All you will need to do is combine and mix together half a teaspoon of salt (sea salt or a coarse salt is preferred), a teaspoon of honey, and lastly a teaspoon of liquid glycerin.
Massage the scrub onto the targeted areas and leave it on for about five minutes before you rinse it off with lukewarm to warm water. If it still feels slick after rinsing with the water, use a gentle soap to remove any excess. Pat dry and then apply your favorite moisturizer. When making the mixture, it is best to use it immediately. If you decide to store any of it, make sure to use it within 48 hours.
