6 Powerful Cures For Stretch Marks

Both women and men can get stretch marks. Most people feel uncomfortable when these stretch marks occur in some parts of the body and feel a need to get rid of them.

Somehow, some feel that it is easy to get rid of them but most have tried a lot of methods to no fruition.

6 Powerful Cures For Stretch Marks

Here are some methods that can work in the removal of stretch marks.

Use Lemon Juice

Lemon juice is known for its natural bleaching properties, so it helps reduce the visibility effectively. Use fresh lemon juice daily or simply rub a sliced lemon wedge on your marks to see results.

Use of Vitamin A

Vitamin A repairs the skin making it look smoother and younger. It is applied in many cosmetic creams so applying an extract of Vitamin A or swallowing the tablet would help clear the stretch marks.

Sugar Scrub

Sugar is mixed with other substances to form a scrub that helps to exfoliate the stretch marks area to clear up the stretch marks. Therefore, mix sugar, olive oil, and lemon juice and mix to form a scrub. Apply it to the stretch marks and rub it in for 10 minutes. Rinse with lukewarm water.

Aloe vera Gel

Remove the outer layer of the aloe vera leaf and take out the sticky gel from the inside of the leaf. Use this aloe vera gel on stretch marks and wash off with water after 2-3 hours

Black Tea

Black tea contains lots of vitamins and minerals, including Vitamin B12, which helps to control skin pigmentation. To use black tea for stretch marks, boil a couple of tablespoons of black tea and add some salt to it. After cooling, apply the mixture to the marks and repeat the process until they disappear.


Drinking 8-10 glasses of water daily is very good for the skin. It helps to restore its elasticity, keeping it supple and soft. This helps to reduce the stretch marks.

However, stretch marks can have causes that aren’t due to underlying disease. Examples include pregnancy, weight gain in obesity, growth spurts in teenagers, medication side effects or a rapid increase in muscle size through weightlifting.
