Treatment And Preventative Oils For Stretch Marks

Treatment And Preventative Oils For Stretch Marks
With the range of stretch mark treatments on the market today, there has been a developing shift between the people who like to use ‘natural’ remedies (such as oils and lotions) and the people who like to use more ‘invasive’ procedures (such as surgery and microdermabrasion). If you err more on the side of natural treatments, the following are some of the best oils for stretch marks treatment and prevention.
Jojoba Oil
This is extracted from the Jojoba plant, which has been used as a natural remedy by the Native American Indians for centuries (so you know it works!). It is suitable for all skin types, making it preferable for people with severe skin allergies, and is used to treat a wide variety of skin conditions (such as eczema, sun burn, wrinkles, arthritis, acne and stretch marks). As a treatment oil for stretch marks, Jojoba can be used by itself or in conjunction with base creams and lotions, or even with essential oils (such as tea tree and geranium seed) that will boost its healing properties.
Lavender Oil
This is extracted from the flowers of the lavender plant through a distillation process, and is one of the few essential oils that is suitable for use during pregnancy (providing that you use the pure type). Lavender is said to be one of the most effective treatment oils for marks before they develop, so during pregnancy and rapid weight gain it is a good idea to run it into areas prone to developing scars. To use lavender oil, you will need to add it to a carrier oil base (such as calendula) and rub it into affected or prone areas of skin twice a day.

Tamanu Oil
This is extracted from the nut of the Tamanu tree, which only blossoms twice a year. The flowers produce yellow fruits that contain a large nut, which is left out in the sun until a thick oil has formed on the surface. It is used to treat a variety of skin conditions, not just marks. If you apply this treatment to affected areas twice daily, you will begin to notice a significant decrease in the size of your scars in only a few months.
Rose Hip Oil
This is extracted from the petals of the rose and has long been used in many cosmetic and treatment capacities (including perfumes and lotions). It is believed that this oil for stretch marks works so well because it contains trans-retinoic acids (essential fatty acids that our skin uses to repair itself). The oil also acts as an anti-inflammatory, which can help to reduce the swelling around scarring that is sometimes caused by incessant itching.
By applying these oils to stretch marks that have already developed or to areas that are prone to developing the scars, you can greatly improve your chances of healing them. Use these oils in conjunction with other treatments to boost their healing properties and notice a difference even sooner.
