Stretch marks can lower one’s confidence, whether a man or woman. There are some treatments designed to eliminate or reduce stretch marks. But the real question is how do you get rid of stretch marks effectively? A few causes of stretch marks include weight lifting, pregnancy and puberty. Since it is hard to get rid of skin problems that occur naturally, we need something effective and worthwhile to use.

Home remedies have been proven to be very effective and safe at the same time. Home remedies are effective because most of them derive from plants and herbs. Herbs have been used for centuries in other parts of the world for their potent, medicinal properties. Plant derivatives are also very safe, considering people from other parts of the world have been using them from one generation to the next.   Effective home remedies include vitamin K, lavender oils, vitamin E, cocoa butter, almond oils and Aloe Vera.

Don’t just use topical treatments to get rid of stretch marks. To eliminate or reduce stretch marks effectively, also try to do it from the inside. Drink at least 5 liters of water each day to improve elasticity in the skin. If you are pregnant, aim at eating more frequently throughout the day but with smaller portions.

Finally, take some action, literally. You need to move around more to maintain a healthy weight. When you gain or lose weight too fast, the skin tends to sag or stretch over its limits and therefore becomes prone to stretch marks. Improve blood circulation through cardio training so that nutrients can reach the skin effectively. Tone up with strength training to firm up and do some stretching exercises to improve flexibility. It’s important to do it gradually to prevent “weight lifter’s” stretch marks.  So there you have it, 3 natural ways to get rid of stretch marks effectively.
