Most people want to get rid of them and if you do to then here are 3 natural and organic ways to reduce your stretch marks at home.

1.  tablespoon Raw Sugar

2. A couple drops of Almond Oil

3. A couple drops of Lemon Juice

What you’ll have to do:

1. Mix all the ingredients together to make a grainy textured scrub.

2. Massage this onto your skin for about 8-10 minutes.

3. Wash it off with warm water and moisturize.

Use this scrub once or twice a day.

This works because Sugar is an amazing exfoliant and the grainy texture helps is circulation and boosts the healing capacity of stretch marks.

Castor Oil

What you’ll need:

1. Castor Oil

1. Warm the Castor Oil slightly and massage it on the stretch marks for 15-20 mins.

Do this once a day. You’ll have to repeat this for atleast a month before you notice positive results.

Castor oil contains ricinoleic acid, a skin-conditioning agent that fastens the healing of stretch marks and makes them appear a lot lighter

Aloe Vera

2. Massage this on the skin until it is fully absorbed.

3. Do not rinse.

Apply this once or twice a day.

Aloe vera gel is soothing for the skin and also fastens the healing process. This is because of the compounds glucomannan and gibberellin in the aloe vera, which increase collagen synthesis and fades stretch marks.

It is important to remember that each person’s skin is different. So if one of these don’t work for you, don't lose hope! These are many home remedies available, these are just the top 3.
