How To Remove Stretch Marks With Sugar

Stretch marks are those visibly ugly
lines on certain parts of the body that could be really embarrassing
and even make you feel self-conscious and shy especially when exposed.

Stretch
marks develop when the skin suddenly needs to stretch beyond the limits
of its natural growth rate like weight gain, rapid increase in muscle
mass, or extreme weight loss.

The
skin is made up of 3 layers; outer, middle and inner. Stretch marks
develop from the middle layer when the connective tissue is stretched
beyond natural elastic limit due to rapid expansion or contraction of
the skin which weakens the collagen leading to an interruption in its
normal production cycle.

Although, stretch marks are
not harmful but they are somewhat embarrassing and can be difficult to
get rid of quickly (except via surgery, which might eventually lead to
sagging skin).

However, with a few natural remedies like the sugar remedy, they can be erased from the skin within the space of days/weeks.

Sugar among many other home
remedies for getting rid of stretch marks is a natural skin exfoliant (a
substance that rubs away dead cells to rejuvenate your skin) cells
which usually accumulate on the stretch marks.

Getting rid of stretch marks with sugar can be done by mixing a couple of other ingredients with sugar.

Here are 3 ways you can get rid of those stretch marks using sugar.

Sugar and lemon

Lemon, which is rich in astringent properties, helps to increase of collagen production and elasticity of the skin.

Mix
a tablespoon of raw sugar with some almond oil (or coconut oil or olive
oil) and a few drops of lemon juice. Mix it well and gently apply it on
the areas affected and other skin areas.

Leave the
mixture for about 10 minutes or more before washing it off. Do it for
about a month and notice how the stretch marks becomes light and fades
out.

Sugar and honey

Honey helps the skin retain the moisture content and also tightens the sagged skin.

Mix equal amounts of olive oil, sugar and honey in a bowl.

Gently massage the affected areas with the mixture, leave for 10 minutes and wash off.

Sugar and coffee

Caffiene
present in coffee grounds improves the production of collagen and
improve elasticity which in turn eliminates the stretch marks.

tablespoons of coconut oil in a bowl and apply on the affected areas.
Leave it for some minutes and wash off.
