There are many oils that you can use. Massaging the affected areas with oils make your skin smooth and help reduce the stretch marks.
Some of the popularly used oils include: Olive Oil, Castor oil, Coconut, Almond Oil. Vitamin E, Aloe Vera, Honey, Egg whites, Shea or Cocoa Butter can also be used.
Exercise also can help. Try doing exercises that work on the muscles of the areas with stretch marks. They tone the skin and help regenerate the tissues. It tightens the loosened skin and helps diminish the stretch marks.
Doctors suggest that natural remedies are far better than medical treatments, especially if you are breastfeeding. But if you are too tired of the pregnancy stretch marks to try home remedies, here are the treatment options. However, some of them could pose serious complications.
Chemical Peels uses chemical solution like trichloroacetic, glycolic, lactic, salicylic or carbolic acids, which when applied on the stretch marks result in blister formation. The blistered skin is later peeled off for the formation of a new skin layer. But there are risks. Talk to your doctor.
