Castor Oil Helps Get Rid of Stretch Marks

Stretch marks are often caused by pregnancy and rapid weight gain, but can also be a result of aging, hormonal imbalance, sudden weight loss, and swelling. Castor oil is known as one of the best treatments for a variety of skin conditions. Its rich contents and various fatty acids make it an excellent moisturizer and effective treatment for getting rid of unsightly stretch marks.

  • Using your fingers, massage enough castor oil over the stretch marks to cover the entire affected area.
    • For added moisture, mix two tablespoons of coconut or almond oil with one tablespoon of castor oil.
    • Avoid applying the treatment to the broken skin.
  • Use a thin cotton cloth to cover the area.
  • Leave the cloth on the area for about 15-20 minutes to help ensure the oil penetrates deeply.
    • Covering the area with a heating pad or hot water bottle will speed up the results.
  • Repeat this process on a regular basis to see a significant reduction in the appearance of your stretch marks.
