Stretch marks, or striae, developed when your skin suddenly needs to stretch beyond the limits of its natural growth rate. The middle layer of your skin breaks in places, causing the lower layers of your skin to show through.

 Stretch marks aren't really anything to worry about. They are a form of scarring that diminish over time as it appear not to disappear completely. Anyone can develop them, both men and women but they are more common for women.

 Stretch marks can be treated through natural and artificial means. I shall explain both methods in this context but i will recommend the natural method because it safe money and has no side-effects.

1. Apply Aloe vera: Aloe vera may be the most effective home health remedy for treating stretch marks. Break off a leaf from an aloe vera plant apply the broken edge directly to your skin. Alternatively, consider using a preparation made using aloe vera gel.
Combine 1/4 cup aloe vera gel with the oil from ten vitamin E capsules and the oil from five vitamin A capsules.
Apply this mixture once a day, rubbing it on your skin until absorbed.

2. Employ egg whites: The amino acids and proteins in egg whites work to repair damaged skin. This treatment may produce result in just a couple of weeks.
Gently whip two eggs whites with a whisk until soft peaks form. Use a makeup brush or sponge to apply a thick layer of whipped egg white to the stretch marks and let dry completely. Rinse with cold water. Apply a light coat of olive oil to hydrate your skin after rinsing off the egg whites.

3. Apply potato juice: While we don't generally think of potatoes as "juicy," the moisture raw potatoes release when cut contains valuable vitamins and minerals. These nutrients promote the restoration and growth of your skin cells. Cut a medium potato into thick slices. Gently rub one of the slices over your stretch marks for several minutes, coating the stretch marks thoroughly with the " juice " the potato emits. Let the juice air dry. Rinse your skin with lukewarm water.

4. Soak in lemon juice: The acid in lemon juice helps reduce skin blemishes. Cut a lemon in half and gently rub a cut end over your stretch marks. Allow the juice to sit on your skin for up to 10 minutes before rinsing with water.

5. Employ creams containing vitamin E, vitamin C, proline, copper-peptides, or ATP. These ingredients operate  similarly to tretinoin, stimulating the development of new skin collagen and the maintenance of your skin. Note that that these products do not eliminate stretch marks completely, but they do cause them to become less noticeable over time.

6. Use skin camouflage: Many pharmacies offer over-the-counter products that can be used to camouflage small areas of skin impacted by birthmarks or stretch marks. Some types are even waterproof, and will remain in place for two to three days.
