Stretch marks are very common. Anyone can get them, but they tend to affect women more than men.
They appear as linear streaks on the skin. The tummy, buttocks, breasts and thighs are the areas of the body most often affected.Stretch marks are the result of the skin suddenly stretching. The middle layer of skin breaks in places, allowing the deeper layers to show through.
They begin as flat red lines, and over time they appear as slightly depressed white streaks.
This annoying condition has made many women to look for treatments on how to get rid of stretch marks fast.
Fortunately, there are some very effective home treatments to reduce stretch marks or even make them disappear completely.
MAGICAL CARROT PASTE TO GET RID OF UNWANTED STRETCH MARKS FOREVER
- ½ carrot
- the peel of 1 whole tangerine
- 4 tbsp. olive oil
According to Jethro Kloss, author of “Back To Eden: The Classic Guide to Herbal Medicine, Natural Foods, and Home Remedies since 1939,” a mixture of these ingredients can be used to make a scrub that can help to remove stretch marks from the skin.
Directions: Combine ½ carrot, the peel of 1 whole tangerine and 4 tbsp. olive oil in a blender or food processor and puree on high speed for 20 seconds.
Massage the mixture onto wet skin in the bathtub or shower. Rinse with lukewarm water and pat dry before applying your regular moisturizer.
Use this treatment once per day and keep the unused portions in the refrigerator for five days.
Steam some carrot to make them soft. Make a thick paste, by masking the steamed carrot. Apply the mask on the stretch mark region. Leave on for half an hour and rinse with cold water. Hot water is very bad for stretch marks and skin stretching.
