The truth is there’s no silver bullet cure for stretch marks. Stretch marks are actually forms of scars, which are mainly caused by skin repairing itself prematurely. Well, there is only 1 regimen you really need to do as a basic way of removing stretch marks.

First, make sure you are taking care of your skin by cleansing it everyday with mild soap. Don’t even think of skipping a bath just because its the cold winter month. Cleansing your skin consistently helps bacteria from thriving in your pores and causing irritation. When skin is irritated, it becomes more prone to damage and therefore scarring. You don’t have to scrub your skin squeaky clean, just use a mild cleansing agent. Strong soaps with fragrances will irritate the skin even more, especially when they strip it from its natural oils.

After skin is cleaned, apply a natural stretch mark cream. Its always best to use a stretch mark cream that has a combination of powerful and safe ingredients. For instance, there are good creams out there that contain triple action combinations, like a combination of grape seed extract, Squalene oil and Aloe Vera. Grape seed boosts the production of collagen and elastin, which are components in the skin that keeps it elastic. Squalene oil is rich in antioxidants, which keeps skin healthy and less prone to scarring. Finally, Aloe Vera helps sooth affected areas so that they don’t become irritated and infected.  We recommend using Revitol as it contains all these natural ingredients.

Next, moisturize. While a good cream already has moisturizers in it, you’d want to do everything you can to eliminate stretch marks. So always moisturize after cleansing and applying treatment. This further protects your skin from external hazards like pollution. Drink lots of water to moisturize from the inside.

Exfoliate occasionally, around once a week. This helps reduce stretch marks, especially those that are raised or bumpy. And there you have it, just 1 simple regimen to remove stretch marks.
