Natural Ways To Fade Stretch Marks After The Baby Is Born

Most women get stretch marks after the baby is born, across their abdomen, breasts, and more. There are products on the market that you can purchase to help them fade, but there are also natural products that you can make at home.

Egg Whites

Put some egg whites in a bowl, and mix with a spoon. Dip a cloth in the mixture, and rub it on the stretch marks. Leave it on for 30 minutes. Do this at least three times a day, and you will notice them fading away.

Lemon Juice

Lemons have natural acids that can help your stretch marks fade. Purchase a few lemons and cut them in half. Squeeze the juice into a bowl. Dip a rag in the juice, and rub it over the stretch marks in a circular motion. Let the mixture dry on your skin for about 10 minutes, and then rinse it off. You should do this at least twice per day.

Cocoa Butter

Purchase some cocoa butter, and rub it into your skin three times per day. This will not only moisturize your skin, but also help your stretch marks fade. You can also apply this to your abdomen area, as well as breasts, throughout your pregnancy to help you ward off the stretch marks.

Apricot Mask

An apricot mask applied to your stretch marks once per day for a month can help them fade. Gather together two or three apricots, and some warm water. Cut the apricots open and remove the seeds. Scoop out the fruit and crush into a bowl to get the paste. Apply the paste to your stretch marks, and leave it on for 30 minutes. After this time, rinse it off with warm water. Repeat this process two times per day for one month.

Aloe Vera

Aloe vera has many benefits, including fading stretch marks. Get an aloe vera plant and remove a leaf, as well as the thorns. Squeeze the leaf into a bowl to get the sticky gel. You may need to use a few leaves to get enough for your stretch marks.

Wipe the gel onto the stretch marks with your fingers, and leave it on for two hours. Wash it off with warm water. You can do this a couple of times per day for 30 days.

Using these techniques, you can fade your stretch marks so they will not be noticeable. This will help you feel better about yourself. It also saves you money, as these products are less expensive than what you purchase at the store.

If you need help with some of the psychological aspects of pregnancy, talk to a counseling service like Hope's Promise.
