We can all agree: stretch marks suck. You may have gotten yours during puberty or when you got pregnant or that time you lost weight too fast. Seriously, it's so unfair. Even if you work your butt off in the gym and lose every single gram of baby weight, you're still left with zebra stripes all up and down your belly -- putting the "mom" stamp on you for the rest of your life.
Thankfully, there are methods to reduce them or get rid of them entirely, and the sooner you use them, the more likely they are to work.
#1 ALOE BODY OIL
Aloe Vera is as close to a perfect plant for your skin as nature could’ve have made. It lowers inflammation, soothes skin, and helps it heal. If you use the juice directly from the plant, it’s good to wash it off after around 15 minutes, but if you use the oil, you can simply leave it on and allow it to work for an even longer period of time: promoting and strengthening its effects. Here at Pick N Dazzle, we can send you Deepline’s Aloe Body Oil with your next box.
#2 ARGAN BODY OIL
To make the Aloe Vera work even better and heal the skin from and even deeper level, it’s good to provide it with Vitamin E – the more natural the better. Thus, Argan Oil, which is rich in Vitamin E is a perfect solution. Rub it on after you’ve put on the Aloe Body Oil and it will provide the skin with local nourishment so those stretch marks can fade.
#3 COCONUT BODY MILK
Moisturiser is the master of everything. Without moisture, skin gets dehydrated and is even more prone to scars, blemishes, and stretch marks. After you get out of the shower, it’s very important to moisturise as soon as possible so that you can lock in as much water as possible. If you have a particularly problematic area, the more moisturiser, the better. Although coconut oil is a little heavy for the face, it’s perfect for as a body moisturiser because the skin on your body is thicker and will react better to it. Furthermore, coconut has all sort of healing properties and vitamins, making it a powerhouse of a healer. Also, it’ll make you smell irresistible.
#4 CALENDULA BODY OIL
Calendula is extra special because it’s a herbal oil that is especially effective for preventing stretch marks in the future. Those of you with baby-bumps, take note! It’s a gentle, healing, and natural oil that will sooth your skin and moisturise it. It’s great to combine with other oils, but it packs a pretty powerful punch on its own as well. Calendula is also great for those of you with super dry skin, because it’s a great moisturiser.
