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.

- The Great Pomegranate Seed Oil Hi Kianouche, Thank you for your message. I would recommend to mix pomegranate oil with Marula oil for what you are looking to treat. A few drops of antioxidant-rich Marula oil mixed with Pomegranate oil can boost efficacy and help restore your skin’s functions in perfect equilibrium. Long term use may visibly minimise pores, brighten the skin, protect it from the oxidative damage caused by pollution, tones down pigmentation and assists with scar tissue healing. Hope this helps :)
- The Great Pomegranate Seed Oil Hi I’ve bought some of your pomegranate oil, together with rosehip and marula oils. Which of the other two oils would be better to mix with pomegranate oil for mature skin with hyperpigmentation due to sun damage and sometimes prone to spots and milia when using rich moisturisers. Also, can I use pomegranate oil by itself or combined with either of the other two oils around my eyes
