Stretch marks are a form of small scars in various part of the body as a result of damage sustained in the middle layer of the skin (dermis). These damages are visible in the upper layer of the skin (epidermis). This happens when the dermis of the skin stretches as a result of rapid weight gain or a kind of hormonal changes that stretches or break the skin.

Aloe vera can be used to control or reduce stretch marks on your body because it helps to keep the skin moist.

Peel off the skin of the aloe vera, slice into pieces and blend. Then, apply it to the stretch marks and massage for few minutes. You can however leave it on your skin to air dry.

Use lemon juice

Lemon juice can also be used to control stretch marks. The juice is acidic and this will aid healing of the stretch marks or some other skin issues. It is advisable to dilute the juice with water because it may cause irritation to a sensitive skin. So apply the diluted lemon juice to the stretch marks massaging it in a circular motion for few minutes. Allow the skin to absorb it for about 20 minutes before rinsing with water.

Egg white

Due to amino acid present in egg white, which is capable of repairing and transforming the skin, it is therefore recommended. Apply egg white to the stretch marks, allowing it to dry before rinsing with water. This can always be done twice a day.

Use Olive oil

Olive oil has the ability to quicken healing process of the skin cells because of its vitamin E content.

Heat up little drops of Olive oil in a pan under low heat, then apply to the skin by massaging in a circular form for about 3-5 minutes for better adsorption. This can be done daily. 

However, stretch marks can be prevented through weight control and regular hydration by drinking enough water to keep the skin soft.
