Firstly, let us clear the air - anyone can experience stretch marks and they are COMPLETELY natural and shouldn’t stop you from loving the skin you’re in! From pregnancy to weight gain and weight loss, right down to your hormones and genetics - there are many things that cause our skin to change.
We think they look absolutely stunning (because they’re part of YOUR story) and should definitely be embraced! Stretch marks are real, beautiful and more common than you probably think. But we also understand if you’d like to find ways to naturally reduce stretch marks.
Fortunately, there are some natural ways to heal stretch marks, using ingredients that are great for the planet, and amazing for your skin. We rounded up 3 tips to help you heal stretch marks naturally.
Tip #1: Exfoliate Regularly
The first thing you want to do to get rid of stretch marks is to help renew the outer layer of the skin with the help of a gentle body exfoliator. There are many benefits that come with exfoliation. It can help you get rid of dead skin cells that can make your skin dull and dry, as well as contributing to skin losing its elasticity.
Regular exfoliation is a good way to help you maintain your skin’s condition, and will help your skin absorb the nourishing body care products you will apply later on. For the best results, we recommend exfoliating your body twice a week in the shower.
And what’s the best way to exfoliate your body? By choosing a natural body scrub! Our Buff-ME Sugar Coffee Body Scrub will leave your skin super buffed, super smooth and smelling of delicious coffee beans. This coffee body scrub contains key superfood ingredients including Coconut Oil, WildBerry Harvest and Shea Butter, which will leave your skin feeling nourished. The scrub particles will help improve your skin texture and circulation, while the natural oils will leave skin feeling super soft.
Tip #2: Use Rosehip Oil
After exfoliating, follow up with a natural body oil like Rosehip Oil. With its amazing hydrating properties, Rosehip Oil is a superhero product to help keep your skin hydrated. It can moisturise, reduce inflammation, and most importantly for stretch marks, improve skin flexibility.
Our Pure Rosehip Oil is packed with natural ingredients, including WildBerry Harvest, sourced from the Australian outback. Applying a hydrating body oil on your skin can help improve the appearance of stretch marks, while making your skin feel fabulous too. If you’re looking for how to feel confident with stretch marks, then using some organic Rosehip Oil will definitely help.
A good tip for how to reduce stretch marks is to rub the stretch marks back together, avoiding pulling them out further. Getting into a regular routine of exfoliating and hydrating your skin regularly will help you heal your stretch marks naturally, improving their appearance over time.
Tip #3: Use Natural Products
We cannot emphasize this enough - when it comes to body scrubs and the best oils for stretch marks, natural solutions can work wonders. Natural ingredients are free from harsh chemicals that could cause a reaction, helping you give the best to your skin.
At RAWW Cosmetics, we stock a range of natural and organic bath and body care products to help give your skin some TLC. By adding natural scrubs to your body care routine, you could soon see some improvement in your stretch marks.
