Who does not want to have perfect skin that will show no wrinkles and stretch marks! But to the dismay of millions, our skin does not help us in this matter; it cannot retain its perfect shape as we age.
When we gain weight suddenly over a short period of time, this rapid stretching leaves its mark on our skin. The stretching can be due to muscle building, pregnancy or weight gain, while wrinkles are part and parcel of growing old. But it sometimes appears due to premature aging which occurs due to our bad lifestyle or negligence of basic skin care. The good news is these two problems can be slowed down or reduced if you take a little extra care of your skin. Here are some detailed instructions on how to get rid of stretch marks.
First of all, you will need some items in your home to follow these steps of getting rid of stretch marks. These include items available in your kitchen like extra virgin olive oil, a container, blender, and yogurt to things you get from a pharmacy like Vitamin E capsule and Aloe Vera gel. Lastly, you will need a towel to dry your face.
In a quarter cup of Aloe Vera gel, add same amount of extra virgin olive oil. To it, add five vitamin E capsules. Be sure to burst the capsule and pour the content on the mixture. Now put all of it in a blender. On a slow speed, blend all of these ingredients and mix until they become cream-like. Now pour it into a small container.
Now apply this blended pack to your skin on the area where stretch marks show. For most of us, the places we want to get rid of stretch marks are on the breasts, hips, arms and stomach. You should massage this liquid into these areas until the skin absorbs it completely. This should be done twice every day; make it a part of your morning and night (before going to bed) beauty ritual. You can put the remaining mixture in the fridge and the shelf life of each such mixture is about two weeks.
The next step to get rid of stretch marks includes the use of yogurt. For that, first use a mild cleanser to wash and clean your face. Use a towel to pat it dry. Now take two tablespoons of plain yogurt and apply it liberally to your face. Plain yogurt has live cultures which will help you to reduce wrinkles and fine lines along with stretch marks.
Use your fingertips to massage the yogurt into the skin, avoiding the area around the eyes. Leave it on the face for 20 to 30 minutes, and then wash it off with warm water. Then splash cool water on your face to close the pores, and pat dry. Continue to use yogurt at least three times per week to reduce wrinkles.get rid of stretch marks
