There two things that keep me from using store-bought stretch mark creams. Firstly, they are quite expensive without providing the results they advertise. Secondly, they are not completely natural so I can fully benefit from the right ingredients. Thus, I discovered a better way, just make my own at home. It is so easy and so much more effective and that is why I want to share it with you. Keep reading and see how you can say bye-bye to stretch marks with this homemade cream.
The ingredients you will need for this recipe are:
– 2 tablespoons of cocoa butter
– 2 tablespoons of coconut oil
– 3 tablespoons of shea butter
– 10 drops of vitamin E oil
– 5 drops of lavender essential oil.
Start mixing together the shea butter with coconut oil and cocoa butter. Then, add the vitamin E oil droops to the mix. Next, put the mixture in a boiling water pan and stir at low heat to melt everything together. After melting the ingredients, you will need to whip it using a whisk and then remove it from the heat. Now would be the time to also add the lavender essential oil and whip again until well mixed.
Lastly, simply store the stretch mark cream in an airtight container and use it two times a day. Take a small amount of cream and massage it gently into the skin, on areas more prone to stretch marks. I like to do this on my breasts, on the abdomen, and on the thighs.
