Stretch marks—they are the marks that appear when your skin changes shape rapidly in a short period of time. It’s common for people to get stretch marks when they reach puberty, gain and lose weight frequently or get pregnant.

But if you want to get rid of stretch marks or prevent stretch marks, here is what you need to try...

Coconut oil

The main reason for stretch marks is dehydrated skin. Use coconut oil on your stretch marks to provide moisture. If you’re pregnant, start using oil on your hips and stomach before your bump starts to grow. This will help heal your sprained skin and slowly fade your stretch marks.

Vitamin E oil
