How to get rid of stretch marks at home

The easiest way to get rid of stretch marks is to avoid them in the first place. Use a stretch mark prevention lotion during your pregnancy if you are pregnant. The harm has already been done by the time you see them. If you begin too late, we'll tell you straight: “Stretch marks are really difficult to cure without deep-stimulating technologies like lasers and micro-needling,” says Rachel Nazarian, MD, a New York City dermatologist. “At-home therapies may somewhat reduce the look, particularly during the early inflammatory period, when stretch marks are redder and more visible.” The following therapies may not work for everyone, but they are worth a go.

Coconut Oil is a kind of vegetable oil.

In addition to making you feel like you're at the beach, coconut oil has anti-inflammatory qualities that help lighten and erase stretch marks.

Although it is solid at ambient temperature, moderate rubbing between your palms generates enough heat to transform it into a liquid, making it easier to apply to afflicted regions of the body. Apply on a daily basis for at least three months.


Sugar, believe it or not, can aid in the removal of stretch marks. It works as a homeopathic microdermabrasion technique to clean your skin. Rub sugar, almond or coconut oil, and lemon juice on stretch marks for eight to ten minutes many times a week.

Vitamin C

“Vitamin C has been demonstrated in a clinical trial to help reduce stretch marks when administered daily for 12 weeks. “Eating foods high in vitamin C may help reduce the appearance of stretch marks—and they're easy to locate; seek for fruits like strawberries and mangoes.” You may safely disregard the following pregnancy myths.

Hyaluronic Acid

Hyaluronic acid stimulates collagen synthesis, which is the protein in our skin that helps it maintain its structure and appearance. It improves skin suppleness, moisturizes, heals wounds, reduces wrinkles, and aids in anti-aging. Take a pill or look for it as a component in lotions.

Aloe Vera

Aloe vera is extremely hydrating, protects the skin from the weather, and may aid in the removal of stretch marks. Aloe vera is also recognized for its ability to heal wounds, so even if it does not suddenly remove stretch marks, your skin will be extremely healthy. Don't miss out on these amazing pregnant beauty surprises.

Vitamin A

Vitamin A is a retinoid, which implies that it smoothes the skin. Using Vitamin A lotions, taking supplements, or include Vitamin A-rich foods in your diet will help improve your skin and eliminate stretch marks.
