When it comes to aging, whether we like it or not, we have to take the bad with the good. For me personally, one of my least favorite side effects of aging is stretch marks. I’m sure if I’d followed a better skincare regiment when I was growing up or during pregnancy, I could have lessened their effects, but the time has passed to think about what I should have done. Now, I just want to find a way to help reduce or even get rid of them. As I set to explore the options, I discovered that there were more choices than I could even wrap my head around. So, I decided to narrow my search down to only organic stretch mark creams. I found that the options were still plentiful, and I could feel confident in my skincare product.
As you probably already know, stretch marks are caused by rapid or extreme stretching of the skin, often caused by pregnancy or rapid weight gain (or they appear after weight loss). They often appear on the hips, buttocks, abdomen, breasts, or other places on the body as paralleled streaks that eventually turn white and appear almost scar-like. Teenagers frequently notice them if they experience a rapid growth spurt, and many of us who grew a belly-full baby have the memory marks to prove it.
While stretch marks aren’t painful, they’re often not aesthetically pleasing, and if there’s an easy way to get them to lighten or disappear, many of us will consider trying to make it happen. Here are the top organic stretch mark creams to test out.
