With advancement of age the skin of the human body gradually loses its sheen. As this skin becomes less flexible, the tissues in the middle layer of the skin become stretched owing to the constant expansion and contraction thereby resulting in formation of fine marks or scars under the epidermis, or the top skin layer. After some time, this develops into a silver coloured line and a stretch mark is finally formed. These scars can make a person extremely self-conscious about one’s appearance and need to be redressed swiftly, through these natural remedies.

1. Aloe Vera

The healing properties of Aloe Vera are very effective in the removal of stretch marks. Collagen, which is the most important protein present in the skin to make it supple, is abundantly found in the leaves of the Aloe Vera plant. These outer leaves, when broken, secrete a sticky gel which is very beneficial for skin repair. Simply use this gel as an oil and apply on the affected parts. After a couple of hours wash it off with lukewarm water. Repeat daily till favourable results are achieved.
