Stretch marks, as the name indicates, are caused by excessive stretching of the skin, in both men and women. These indented streaks may appear on the abdomen, breasts, hips, arms, shoulders, buttocks, and thighs. They commonly occur in pregnancy, when you hit puberty, upon rapidly gaining or losing weight, genetic disorders, or due to certain medications. These pink or red streaks aren’t painful but can shatter your confidence and self-esteem. For these awkwardly visible striae, there are many over-the-counter products available. However, we suggest you choose herbal remedies to fade your stretch marks without any risk of side effects.
1. Aloe Vera
The juice from the leaves of this succulent plant has been used for centuries for medicinal purposes. It contains polyphenols that are rich in antioxidants. This thick liquid possesses anti-inflammatory and anti-bacterial properties. Aloe vera juice stimulates the renewal of the epidermis and heals the skin. With rejuvenating effects, it promotes fading of stretch marks and prevents their re-appearance on regular application.
2. Avocado Oil
Rich in oleic acid, an unsaturated fatty acid, avocado oil is known to promote heart health. This oil is a good source of lutein that has antioxidant properties. High in Vitamins A and E, it improves skin membrane health and promotes wound healing. Avocado oil increases skin elasticity and provides nourishment that helps to lighten the stretch marks. It also moisturizes and soothes the skin, giving it a satin-like feel.
3. Apricot Oil
The oil from the seeds of this fruit is high in vitamins, flavonoids, and potassium. It contains Vitamins A and E that have skin-boosting properties. Apricot seed oil has natural linoleic and oleic acids that strengthen and soften the skin. This light oil penetrates deep into the skin, providing long-lasting moisturization. It erases the stretch marks from your skin and makes it firm and clear. It also helps to reduce redness and blemishes from your skin, giving it a healthy shine.
4. Vitamin E
This fat-soluble vitamin has become an essential ingredient in skincare owing to its multiple benefits. It has both antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties that make it effective against hyperpigmentation, signs of aging, and painful acne on the skin. Vitamin E reduces stretch marks by improving epidermal lipid barrier conditions. This vitamin helps to regenerate the skin and keep it lubricated. Providing intensive moisturization, Vitamin E keeps the skin nourished and glowing.
5. Vitamin C
Vitamin C, a powerful antioxidant is a holy grail for all types of skin conditions. This water-soluble nutrient prevents your skin from damage caused due to free radicals, excessive stretching, and sun exposure. By stimulating collagen synthesis, it maintains the elasticity and flexibility of your skin. This reduces and prevents the formation of stretch marks. Vitamin C accelerates skin healing and brightens the complexion. The efficacy of Vitamin C increases when combined with Vitamin E as the latter vitamin stabilizes the former one. Diminishing fine lines and striae, Vitamin C helps you achieve an even skin tone.
6. Plant oils
High-quality vegetable oils extracted from different plants offer numerous benefits when used wisely. When applied topically, plant oils protect the skin from external factors and keep the skin safe and healthy. These oils prevent excessive loss of moisture from the skin and keep it supple. Oils such as almond, coconut, olive, jojoba, grapeseed, and rosehip seed oil are known to promote the health of the skin. Plant oils help to keep skin nourished, moisturized and rejuvenated naturally.
These are some of the best herbal ingredients that will help you get rid of stretch marks without any adverse reactions. However, it might be a little difficult for you to find all these ingredients in one topical formulation. Don’t be bothered, we have the solution for you!
You can find all these powerful herbal ingredients in a single product, ‘Revamin stretch mark cream’. It is an advanced formula that reduces and erases your stubborn stretch marks forever.
