No matter where they are located, stretch marks are a HUGE pain. They don’t look particularly attractive and have the potential to take a toll on a woman’s self-esteem, primarily if they’re found on the breasts.
But before you start thinking low cut tops and s*xy lingerie for nighttime romps with your hubby are out of the question, know this much. While you can never truly erase stretch marks, you can significantly reduce their appearance by doing one of these home remedies for getting rid of stretch marks on your breasts.
First, Let’s Understand Why
It may seem self-explanatory as to why stretch marks appear: your skin stretches, thus your skin is going to have a mark from the expansion. But did you know there’s a couple of other reasons why you may end up with extra unwanted stretch marks?
While stretch marks on breasts are likely to happen during puberty as the breasts expand rapidly, they can also occur by:
-Not getting enough water and rendering yourself dehydrated.
-Rapid weight loss or weight gain.
-It runs in the family.
-You’re not wearing proper undergarments, which can be hard work for bigger breasted women.
Now Let’s Talk About How to Help the Problem
All Natural Oils
It seems like the first go-to answer for any skin or health problem is always all-natural oils, and that’s because they work. All-natural oils, including castor, almond, olive, and coconut oil, are loaded to the brink with plenty of vitamins and minerals that are amazing for the skin. Vitamin E is especially high for all skin problems from acne to dryness, and of course, stretch marks.
To get the best results from your all-natural oil of choice, you will need to massage the oil into your skin regularly. It may take a bit of time before you see visible results, but you can feel good knowing you’re using an all-natural product that is beneficial for your skin in so many ways.
Lemon and Cucumber Juice Blend
Lemons and cucumbers are fantastic for the skin when fighting off wrinkles, sagging, and dryness, but did you know that this great duo can also kill off those stretch marks? By simply mixing these two juices, you create a powerhouse of ingredients that work to reduce your stretch marks not just on your breasts, but all over the body.
Apply the juice mixture to your breasts and leave on for about 30 minutes, then rinse off. Make sure you’re using ALL NATURAL juices, making your own from a fresh product is even better.
At some point or another, you’ve probably seen commercials or heard from a mother how beneficial cocoa butter is for stretch marks on pregnant bellies; but cocoa butter isn’t just for the moms-to-be out there. Cocoa butter is also great for stretch marks on breasts, loaded with collagen-producing agents for sensationally soft and stretch mark free skin.
Massage this yummy-scented product onto your breasts and enjoy the miraculous results.
We all know egg whites are the perfect ingredient for tightening and brightening the skin, but what can it do for stretch marks? Well, let me tell you this: egg whites are full of protein and have the potential to tighten the skin while lightening stretch marks, making them almost unnoticeable.
All you need to do is get some egg whites, whip them, and apply to your breasts. Once dried, hop in the shower and rinse off. When you’re all done, make sure you apply a good moisturizer, so your skin doesn’t dry out and end up with more stretch marks!
Ladies! Always make sure you are drinking plenty of water. As we mentioned earlier, dehydration can be a sure-fire reason for getting stretch marks, so if you want to reduce the sight of your stretch marks and prevent future ones from appearing, then you need to be drinking the recommended amount of water every day. Do this, and you will be good!
If you’re not interested in a home remedy, there’s always the option of purchasing professional grade cream. Any product you find with tretinoin cream (especially if it is made with other ingredients for fending off stretch marks) is a great option. Tretinoin cream lightens the skin while also working to replace old skin with a new skin for a more tight and toned look, minus the marks.
Don’t let stretch marks get you down. By using the six options above, you can seriously reduce the visibility of your stretch marks so you can enjoy your breasts to the fullest.
