Stretch marks, occur when your skin undergo rapid changes due to growth or weight gain. They don't have any pronounced medical significant because they are not indications that anything is wrong with your health. They can occur to any body both male and female - pregnancy and puberty are the leading cause of it. Eradicating stretchmarks in a totally natural way is highly unlikely because they’re a type of scarring that rarely fades enough to become invisible. However, there are remedies that can help with stretchmarks and can make them fade away more quickly. 

Vitamin A

It has been shown that vitamin A is not only useful for a proper eyesight but also contributes greatly for a good skin health. Eating foods that are rich in vitamin A or taking vitamin A orally, can help cope with stretchmarks. Foods rich in vitamin A includes carrot, sweet potatoes, fortified breakfast cereal, fortified skimmed milk, broccoli, spinach, and leafy vegetables.

Sugar

The process of using sugar to clear up stretch marks is called microdermabrasion, it is all so simple to carry out -  all you need do is;  

Mix one cup sugar with 1/4 cup of a softening agent, like almond oil or coconut oil.

.    Add some lemon juice.
   Scrub the mixture on the part of your body where the stretch marks are.
   Repeat several times a week while in the shower, making sure to rub the mixture on for 8-10 minutes.

This method will help exfoliate the area where the stretchmarks are and improve the condition. 

Aloe vera

Aloe vera has been one of the most used recipes for treating skin problems. It has been shown to work wonders in virtually all skin complications, and stretchmarks are not exempted. Applying pure aloe vera extract to your stretch marks daily after you shower could be another perfect way of fighting the ugly looks of stretchmarks.

Hyaluronic acid

Hyaluronic acids help to improve the production of collagen - collagen is a protein in the body that helps to keep the skin in shape and lack of this collagen leads to skin wrinkles and stretchmarks.

Coconut oil

Since stretch marks are scarring from skin damage, coconut oil might help heal the appearance quickly. Applying coconut oil to your stretch marks each day might help take away some of their red appearance.
