Stretch marks are mainly caused by pregnancy but they will appear if there’s sudden loss or gain in weight, hereditary factors, stress, rapid growth and changes in physical conditions. They are mostly found in the lower body such as abdomen or in the arms. Some of the best treatment for stretch marks include the following:
coconut oil for stretch marks has been around forever and really is my personal favorite. Coconut oil can be used for so many things, especially for your skin. Add a little to your face right before bed and wake up with less wrinkles. Use it to brush your teeth. Or add it to your warm bath to really let it soak into your skin to not only help with stretch marks, but all sorts of blemishes. It’s simply the best moisturizer for dry skin period!

Eggs are a good source of protein. However, if you need to clear out your stretch marks, you should use only egg whites which contain amino acids and proteins.
