3 quick tips to ditch stretch marks in no time:
Tip # 1: Moisturize, moisturize, moisturize!
lotions like cocoa butter that increase your body’s elasticity and stimulate
blood flow. You can also massage your skin with vitamin E oils. Vitamin E is a
powerful anti-oxidant that supports your skin’s self-healing process. Smells
Tip # 2: Use self tanner but do NOT go tanning!
self-tanning lotion makes your stretch marks less noticeable, the tanning salon
will do just the opposite! Stretch marks won’t tan under real UV rays but
rather turn out all white (eek).
Tip # 3: Work out (sorry guys)!
know ya don’t wanna hear it - but working out might just be the key to solving
the stretch mark sitch. With a quick workout once a day, you can fight the
appearance of stretch marks (most of them are built from fat so once ya get rid
of that, they’ll disappear, too!). Try a couple of sit-ups, push ups and leg
pumpers once a day and ya can wave stretch marks buh-bye!
