Many people get stretch marks throughout their lifetime. Either from gaining weight, losing weight, muscle gain and pregnancy. Most people feel a little insecured because of these marks. Though, stretch marks are totally harmless to your body but most people lose a little confidence in their body because the marks sometimes stop them from showing off their skin. We(Okpeke) hope these remedies would help you bounce back on your feet. These remedies would only help the stretch marks appear less visible and not completely fade them away. If the marks were quite darker than your normal skin tone, these remedies would help tone/blend them together.
Disclaimer!! You should know by now that you’re gorgeous just the way you are. You should not try to do things because of what people might think, do things because you’ll feel happier afterwards.

Everyone probably possess this oil. Olive oil helps to moisturize and soften the area of the stretch marks. It’s like a massage oil. It fades the dark marks away and makes your skin smoother. Massage this oil into the stretch marks twice daily(morning and night).
#2. Raw Shea Butter(popularly called Ori in Nigeria).
It is nourishing and moisturizing. It heals dry skin. It softens and smoothens your skin. Massage it into the stretch marks area twice daily(morning and night).
#3. Potato Juice.
Slice the potato and massage it into your stretch mark area, leave it in for ten minutes and then rinse off with lukewarm water. This should be done every two to three days, nothing less than that. The potato juice tightens the stretched area.
#4. Aloe Vera Gel. (CLICK ON THE ALOE VERA PICTURE BELOW TO PURCHASE ALOE LOTION AND ALOE SCRUB)
