Say goodbye to stretch marks for summer with natural oils
With spring bringing with it slightly warmer weather and the knowledge that there are sunnier days to come, many people are already thinking about how to get their ultimate beach body. As well as losing weight and toning up, there are other things that can impact how you feel about your body this summer and how willing you are to show it off.
Stretch marks can be a cause for concern among many people - both men and women - and can affect confidence, especially if they are in prominent places.
Although stretch marks are often thought of as being a result of pregnancy, they can be caused by building up muscle, putting on weight or losing it. This means that anyone can get them and be conscious of them.
Luckily, there are natural ways that you can help to prevent and reduce the appearance of stretchmarks, giving you smoother, more even skin and helping you to feel beach ready.
Oils and butters can be really beneficial when it comes to helping to fade stretch marks and to stop them from getting worse. They help to moisturise the skin and improve elasticity, which reduces the chances of your stretch marks getting worse. Many natural butters and oils also help to encourage skin healing, which can help to fade stretch marks and result in smoother, more even skin.
Almond oil is a fantastic stretch mark remedy and is highly nourishing for the skin, providing a gorgeous complexion that you'll be happy to show off. It is high in essential fatty acids, which serve to abolish dry skin and lock in moisture.
Ensuring your skin has a good level of moisturisation means that it is better able to repair itself. This is especially true if the oil you use has a high concentration of vitamin E - which almond oil does - as this helps to support the growth of new skin cells, reducing the appearance of scars and stretch marks.
Applying almond oil everyday will help to fade away your stretch marks, ensuring you feel gorgeous and confident for summer.
Just as with almond oil, cocoa butter is incredibly moisturising and rich in vitamin E. It sinks into the skin really easily and gives the best results when applied to your stretch marked areas twice a day.
It works by moisturising really deeply, improving elasticity of the skin and reducing the chances of any stretch marks getting worse. As it enables skin healing, you'll see your stretch marks start to fade away after a few weeks of continuous use.
In order to get the best results it's advised to use pure cocoa butter or a product that contains a high amount of the butter and no harmful chemicals. This will ensure that your skin is getting loads of this gorgeous, natural product everyday and will mean you see fast results.

- Which is the best oil for hair growth and thickness?Thank you Emiliano for your comment. In this blog we are referring more to oils, more so than butters and while we agree with you Shea is an excellent emollient for hair, it's consistency is more buttery and it is used more as a leave-in remedy to smooth hair texture. We have suggested Coconut oil as it helps slow down hair loss by penetrating deep into your hair shaft to prevent protein loss, which in turn prevents breakage. When applied to your scalp, it simultaneously moisturises and removes build-up around your hair follicles to encourage hair growth and is one of base oils always used in Ayurveda for hair treatments. As this post is more focused for hair and not for skin, the comedogenic scale applies to skin/pores and not hair follicles. Thank you again for your feedback.
- Which is the best oil for hair growth and thickness?Hello Zu, yes hair loss can be very stressful and this in turn amplifies the cause almost.. Perhaps with Covid, your system may have been depleted of nutrients and fighting the virus can take its toll on your immune system, so sometimes our hair and skin suffer when we have been ill. We really believe in oils for scalp massage as the best way to revive the growth and help regenerate the follicles. It may be also worth at looking at internal supplements and making sure you are getting enough of omega oils, perhaps plant based such as nuts and seeds in your diet. For external oil treatment, would recommend the Really Good Hair oil which we create with Brahmi, this herb is known to help bring the scalp back to health and improve growth. Biotin is also a good vitamin to take as a supplement to help with hair growth so do look into that. So hope these tips will be helpful for you.
- Which is the best oil for hair growth and thickness?I, am very surprised that your article did not include Organic Shea Butter and that coconut oil, is your number one choice for hair growth and thickness. According to the comedogenic scale, coconut oil, has a rating of (4), on a scale from (0), to (5), on clogging your pores. Why would anyone put coconut oil, on their hair or skin knowing the pores will get clogged up. Shea Butter, on the other hand has a (0), rating on the comedogenic scale, which is great for dry hair and skin and won't clog up your pores.
- Which is the best oil for hair growth and thickness?Thank you for your very informative article. I suffered COVID in December, 2020, and in February I started experience extreme hair loss and all my hair jus falls like a person who is under going Chemo therapy. It's very depressing. Had to cut off all my hair and even the little that is left is falling off daily not sure what to do. Please suggest something.
- 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
