With beach getaways in full swing and warmer weather on the horizon, some of my patients have been asking me how to naturally reduce the appearance of stretch marks. One remedy that I have seen great results with is castor oil. Why castor oil? Massaging this oil onto stretch marks daily helps to increase blood flow which promotes tissue healing and repair. Topical Vitamin E oil and Rosa mosqueta cream can also help encourage repair of the skin and further reduce the appearance of stretch marks.
One note of caution: Do NOT use castor oil while you are pregnant as it can stimulate uterine contractions.
