Stretch marks are a common skin concern, which can sometimes be treated effectively with at home remedies. While these marks are a natural part of life, and happen in over 90% of people, they can be a cause of angst for many. Read on our Tips For Getting Rid of Stretch Marks to find out all the things that you can do at home before spending money coming to a clinic like ours. These home remedies that can be easily incorporated into your routine.

Genetic Causes of Stretch Marks

There is a genetic factor to getting stretch marks and they are very common. Most teenagers get them during growth spurts. The bellow oils will give your skin the best possible chance to heal itself and hopefully you wont need skin treatments after all!

It’s really important to understand that Stretch Marks are often genetic and that you may get them regardless of the oil and care that you give them. I frequently get ladies in our office blaming themselves for their stretchmarks. Please don’t do this. If you have them, you would have got them no matter what you did, didn’t do, thought of doing etc.

If your Stretch Marks are still red or pink you are not yet suitable for DermaEraze Stretch Marks Treatment.  Here are some tips for getting rid of stretch marks that you can do at home.   DermaEraze is recommended only after the stretch marks have gone a silvery white.  However, if your Stretch Marks have been red or pink for years, do get in touch as we have a treatment that will improve them very quickly.

The good news is that if your stretch marks are still red or pink, your body still has a chance at healing them. You just need to give it a helping hand. If you also have scars that need healing you can read here.

Lotions and Potions

There are many lotions and potions that you can buy for hefty sums that promise all sorts of miracles. Don’t be fooled, although some may help the fact is that everything your body needs to enhance the healing process is contained in three oils, Olive Oil, Avocado Oil and Castor Oil. These 3 oils combined on a 1/3 ratio each will give your skin vitamin A, E and all the moisture it requires to help along the healing process.
The same mixture is fantastic at preventing them during pregnancy. Consistency is the key here. You must keep your skin as moist as you can.

You can buy all these oils at your local food shop for about £5 to £10 each. Castor oil you may need to buy on line. Choose the Extra Virgin Cold Pressed kind. In other words, the thicker the better. Try to keep the area moist or sticky with oil. Your skin loves moisture when it regenerates.

Dermal Rollers for Home Stretch Marks Removal

You can buy over the counter dermal rollers which you can use on clean skin. Use your combination of oils straight after. You can do this up to 3 times per week. Over the counter Dermal Rollers tend to be quite safe and made for at home use.

Drink Your Daily Water

Keeping your skin well-hydrated is key in the battle against stretch marks. Drinking plenty of water maintains skin elasticity, aiding in the natural healing process. Drinking water is also a cornerstone to your overall health and longevity.

Healthy Diet

This sounds like such a cliche “eat right and exercise”….however, your health does show on your skin. Change seed oils for Avocado and Olive Oil when cooking, your body will thank you for this. Try to mainly eat things that don’t come out of box or packet. If you live alone and don’t want to cook for yourself because of the time and mess, consider an air fryer. We recommend the Ninja Grill (not paid advertisement).

Vitamins and Supplements

Supplements are now a must, a good multivitamin, Vitamin D3 as well as a collagen powder supplement every morning will make a considerable difference to your skin and energy levels. And for the love of all that is HOLY in life….DON’T SMOKE!

Exfoliate Regularly:

Incorporate regular exfoliation into your skincare routine. Gently scrubbing the affected area with a homemade sugar scrub promotes blood flow and supports skin regeneration, crucial for addressing stretch marks. This can be done in the shower once a week. Exfoliating is very important because the use of oils will leave residue that needs to be shifted.

Lemon Juice Brightening

Actively apply freshly squeezed lemon juice to your stretch marks. Lemon juice is rich in vitamin C which is regenerative to the skin. Rub it in as you would a cream. The natural acidity aids in lightening their appearance over time, contributing to a more even skin tone.

Cocoa Butter for Stretch Marks Removal

Cocoa butter is another one of those magic ingredients given to us by mother nature. Get the pure organic with no other ingredients. I usually get it in African Hair Shops but you can also buy it online. It smells divine and it’s fantastic for the skin in general. Use it daily after the shower before the oils. The deep hydration properties of cocoa butter improve skin elasticity, making it an effective remedy for addressing stretch marks.

Stay Active

Physical exercise is important overall health and skin health. Physical activity promotes blood circulation, enhancing your skin’s ability to repair itself naturally. Blood flow and oxygen intake is critical to health and therefore skin.

Get 8+ of sleep

We regenerate as we sleep. This means our entire bodies. Sleep after having any kind of skin treatment will really help with the healing and influence your results.

Cut Down on Alcohol

Alcohol makes our livers work on overtime. If our liver is busy clearing out the alcohol it will not have enough left to clear out our cells. This is very important after any sort of semi invasive treatment stretch marks treatment like DermaEraze.

Maintain a Consistent Routine

Consistency is paramount in any skincare routine. Choose your preferred treatments and apply them consistently. Patience and dedication are key when working towards healing stretch marks at home.
