How to rid stretch marks
I have always had a fear of stretch marks.
Now since I want to get pregnant, the fear is getting worse. What to do?!
Stretch marks are also called striae. They are scarring in the skin caused by stretching, such as during pregnancy when the skin grows and stretches rapidly. This also occurs during puberty. They do eventually fade but not completely and that's when my fear kicks in.
Stretch marks can happen anywhere in the body but they mostly appear where there is a lot of fat. These places include: breasts, abdomen, buttocks etc...
Here are the statistics during pregnancy:
About 90% of women will develop stretch marks. Some will have it worse than others.
Here is something that I found fascinating, an oil to prevent stretch marks the natural way.
This homemade oil works with all the ingredients, as I've read, to help prevent stretch marks.
I really want someone to try this out and tell me how
it works. Since I'm not pregnant and would really love to see if this
works, email me with the results.
The main component is the mandarin that's included in the recipe.
Here are the ingredients:
4 drops of mandarin
3 drops neroli
3 drops lavendar
5 tsp almond oil
1 tsp wheat germ oil
Blend these ingredients and rub them into your abdomen skin twice a day. Start this after the 4th month of your pregnancy.
Also, I've been doing a lot of research and I've been trying to find the most effective way to prevent stretch marks the organic way.
I stumbled upon this website, which might help a lot of you. This website is called organically Hatched and offers a lot of diverse products, from cleaning to diapering.
There is an oil called: Soapwalla Pregnant Oil that I have found while researching. It's 45 bucks and probably worth the money. I'm wondering if anyone has tried this oil or have heard any good reviews about it?
I will definitely try these two methods out when I get pregnant and let all of you know how they turned out. And hopefully I don't end up with stretch marks! Good luck to all of you.
