Get rid of stretch marks the natural way
Stretch marks are completely natural and are present on nearly every woman - mostly on the buttocks, breasts and hips.
The main times that stretch marks develop are: during pregnancy, a weight gain or throughout the changes a woman goes through in puberty.
Despite being completely normal, many women are deeply ashamed of their stretch marks and are constantly searching for any way to get rid of them.
Make up can often be ineffective in disguising the marks, while costly lotions and creams often do not provide what they claim to achieve.
However, there are some natural remedies that may help alleviate the marks, as well as not costing the earth!
Rosehip oil is thought to have cell regeneration properties. Many people believe that it can treat different types of scarring, from acne scars to stretch marks.
It is rich in vitamins A, C and E which are famous for promoting collagen levels, giving skin that bit of extra elasticity and strength.
In addition, rosehip oil smells lovely so it's no chore to simply add this ointment twice a day.
Because of the natural fruit acid present in lemons, they are believed to have scar-reduction properties.
After slicing the lemon and squeezing out its natural juices, you can simply apply it to the affected area. This may reduce the redness by bleaching the skin and therefore reducing the appearance of stretch marks.
Vitamin-C rich ointments
When looking for a stretch mark ointment it is important that you look for one rich in vitamin C.
This vitamin is well renowned for its regenerative properties - it is used extensively to reduce the appearance of wrinkles, scars and stretch marks.
Some stretch mark ointments also contain neroli essential oil which is thought to be a great repairer of broken capillaries.
Remember that stretch mark ointments should be rich in a whole host of natural ingredients, so don't think that you need to spend huge amounts of money on the product.

- Carrot Oil for Face Hello :) You can use carrot oil only in small drops on your skin in the morning/during the day since it is highly potent. Carrot oil is rich in vitamins and is a very effective moisturiser. You can also mix a few drops of Carrot Oil with your favorite face cream. You can do that at least twice a week or include it in your daily skincare routine. Hope this helps.
- Carrot Oil for Face Can I use the carrot oil in the day time? Because I am using Vitamin c serum in the night. Please advise. Thanks
- Carrot Oil for Face Hello :) Carrot Oil contains Beta Carotene and Vitamin A which, by eliminating toxic build-up and repairing sun-damaged skin, helps to improve skin complexion. Antiseptic properties also assist in reducing breakouts and the formation of acne. It is also great for hydrating the skin. So mixing it with Jojoba oil may help. I would also recommend mixing Jojoba oil and Tamanu oil as both have great moisturising properties and are great for acne prone skin. Hope this helps!
- Carrot Oil for Face I have acne. I have been using jojoba oil only but I noticed my face is sometimes dry. If I add carrot oil will it help moisturize my face and clear the spots or should I join argan oil to the mix?
