Tips for removing stretch marks with aloe vera


Basically, there are many ways to process aloe vera so that it can effectively disguise stretch marks on your skin. You can use aloe vera gel alone after bathing or mix it with some other natural ingredients.
 

1. Aloe vera gel

Aloe vera gel is usually available at beauty stores or supermarkets. However, you can also make it yourself at home with the main simple ingredient, the aloe vera plant.

How to use it:

  •     Cut the leaves and extract the aloe vera gel that is in them.
  •     Apply it on the area affected by stretch marks and massage for one to two minutes.
  •     No need to rinse
  •     Do this twice a day.


2. Aloe vera and coffee grounds

Coffee grounds are believed to be natural scrubbing ingredients that can exfoliate dead skin well. When mixed with aloe vera gel, which is moisturizing for the skin, both of these can be quite powerful remedies for getting rid of stretch marks.

Ingredient:

  •     2 tbsp coffee powder
  •     2 tbsp aloe vera gel


How to use it:

  •     Mix the coffee grounds with aloe vera gel and mix well.
  •     Apply it on the stretch marks and massage in a circular motion for one minute.
  •     Leave it on for 20 minutes.
  •     Rinse with water or use a cloth dampened in water to clean it.
  •     Apply moisturizer to the area.
  •     Repeat this method every other day.


Remember, coffee grounds have a fairly coarse texture, so you need to be careful when cleaning them not to put too much pressure on the area.

3. Aloe vera and coconut oil

As an essential oil that is high in vitamin E, coconut oil can be used to remove stretch marks with a mixture of aloe vera.

In addition, coconut oil also contains protein which can accelerate the regeneration of skin cells, thereby helping to fade lines on your skin.

Ingredient:

  •     1/2 cup coconut oil
  •     1/3 cup of aloe vera gel


How to use it:

  •     Combine the two ingredients above and stir until it forms a smooth gel.
  •     Put the mixture in an airtight container.
  •     Take a little of the gel and apply it on the areas that have stretch marks.
  •     Leave it overnight.
  •     It is recommended to use it every night before going to bed.


Using the methods above to get rid of stretch marks with a mixture of aloe vera must be done regularly so that you get maximum results. If you are in doubt, please consult a doctor before applying the methods that have been described previously
