Hi Ladies,
           I recently noticed my stretch marks are fading away. They were not that big and it's not really noticeable anymore. I have a strong feeling my sugar scrub is the cause.
I started bathing with my sugar scrub maybe 3 weeks ago and it's a blessing. I have really dry skin so it works wonders, especially on my back.
Has anyone else had this fading results with their stretch marks?
 
my sugar scrub contains: sugar, honey, EVOO and lemon juice
 
This mixture lasts for maybe 2 wks for me
 
Put some sugar in a container
Then add  EVOO (almost the same amt. as the sugar)
Mix in some honey (maybe a couple of tbsps)
Squeeze half lemon juice in there (you can squeeze the whole lemon if you like)
Finally you add your fav essential oil
(I added 2 drops of Almond Oil)
 
If you guys want, I can take pics later on since I'll be making some more.
Remember, don't take it off right way. Leave it for 5 mins
 
Also, for those of you who are always on your feet during the day,
Before you take a shower, sit down and massage it all over your feet (btwn ur toes, ur heels everywhere!) for 5 mins and then rinse offwhile you in the shower and you'll thank me later
 
Great for hands also! Thumbs%20Up

Congrats!! Your scrub sounds amazing for exfolliating. I will try it seeing as I have dry skin. But here's a suggestion: use grapeseed oil instead of evoo. Grapeseed oil has been known to help fade stretch marks and dark spots. Trust me it works.

You can usually find grapeseed oil in most grocery stores along w/ the other cooking oils. It's pretty inexpensive @ $7.99/L.

I do it before cleansing my skin I guess.Confused
I just put it on right before I go into the shower or while I am in there.
Then I follow with baby gel.

I never really measured but maybe a 1/4 cup sugar, 3 tbsp EVOO, 1 tbsp honey, 1/2 of a lemon, and I added 3 drop of almond oil yesterday. It smells so good. This lasts for a week.

i've had success with removing darker stretch marks by using an exfoliating glove; going to try this sugar mix  to remove older marks
