Steps to Fade Your Stretch Marks and Reduce Streych Mark Scars

Updated on January 9, 2017

Maybe you are getting ready to have a baby. Maybe you just had a baby and gained a few pounds. Maybe you have been working out and lost some of skin elasticity. No matter your reason, if you have developed stretch marks, you want to get rid of them. The problem is, you may not know where to turn. Is there anything that really works to fade stretch marks and tone the skin up? Is getting rid of your stretch marks just a myth? No. Despite the tons of discouraging advice, stretch marks as no different than any other scars. They can fade with the proper treatments and patience. Can you fade scrapes after a fall or burn marks? Well, if you follow the steps below, you can also reduce your stretch marks.

How to Fade & Reduce Stretch Marks- Step #1:

Stay Hydrated. Whether you are trying to reduce existing stretch marks or prevent stretch marks during pregnancy, water in your body is a must.

Drink at least 8 glasses of water daily, 10-12 glasses is even better. Water hydrates your body and skin tissues; and to eliminate stretch marks, tone your skin, and get the proper nutrients to your skin cells trying regenerate collagen, you have to get water to give your skin internal moisture. Thirsty skin equals dry skin; dry skin loses its elasticity more easily, pulls easily, and bruises quickly.

How to Fade & Reduce Stretch Marks- Step #2:

Use the Right Products. Unfortunately, there are tons of bogus stretch mark products on the market, advertising that they reduce stretch marks with some breakthrough science. Fading your stretch marks is pretty simple and can be done with great natural remedies, including rosehip seed oil, wheat germ oil, grapeseed oil, and Emu Oil. Try Beauty 4 Ashes Shock Therapy System for stretch marks. It works extremely well and contains all of the ingredients that I mentioned above. It is the all natural equalivalent to Strivectin-SD at half the price. You can find in online at wwwdiscoverb4acom. I always advise anyone who wants to reduce their stretch marks to use 100% natural products and pure oils. Natural products, overall, reduce stretch marks just as well, or even faster, than products containing special chemicals and formulas. Plus, usually these chemicals cause redness, itchiness, and even dryness, which makes stretch mark reduction highly unlikely.

How to Fade & Reduce Stretch Marks- Step #3:

Make sure you exfoliate your skin. Exfoliation is necessary to lift dead skin cells and increase circulation to the areas you want to stimulate collagen production. The best all natural body scrub that reduces stretch marks in Beauty 4 AshesTM No More Shame Coffee & Sugar Body Scrub (wwwdiscoverb4acom). The caffeine in coffee has a diuretic and blood circulating effect that slims and tone the skin. Sugar acts as a natural form of glycolic acid, which smooths and tones the skin while reducing marks. Even better, this scrub contains essential and natural oils that have been proven to reduce stretch marks, including rosehip seed oil, emu oil, tangerine oil, and wheat germ oil. Even if you do not have stretch marks, it is a great scrub to exfoliate and soften the skin.

How to Fade & Reduce Stretch Marks- Step #4:

Moisturize Your Skin. Moisture, Moisture, Moisture. It is the key to getting rid of stretch marks. The best thing to moisturize your skin with to remove stretch marks is oil. Yes, use oils instead of creams. Why? Because oil has the ability to penetrate below the first layer of skin, the epidermis. This doesn't mean that you need to stop lotioning yourself, you just need to add oils into your skin care regimen. Great oils to use are Wheat Germ, Castor, and Vitamin E Oil. However, you must purchase these oils from your local whole foods store. Most traditional stores won't have the pure stuff. Again, that is why I recommend trying Beauty 4 Ashes No More Shame ® Triple Action Stretch Mark Body Oil. It contains all the great oils listed above, plus some other that have been proven track record of reducing stretch marks. They also make a Triple Action Belly Oil, that works wonders for women who are pregnant and trying to prevent stretch marks.

How to Fade & Reduce Stretch Marks- Step #5:

Stay positive. Depending on the depth and color of your stretch marks, it may take several months for you to reduce your stretch marks, but with consistency, time, and following these tips, your stretch marks should be gone as soon as possible.
