Is there a way to get rid of those stretchmarks after birth?  Mine are brownish and would like to know if they can be removed?  Thanks!

1. Water is very important for maintaining the suppleness of skin. Keep yourself hydrated by drinking as much water as you can.

2. Cocoa butter is very effective in formation of new collagens. Massage the stretch marks affected areas regularly with cocoa butter.

3. Eat vitamin E rich diets like almonds, spinach etc. Vitamin E capsules can also be taken. You can also try applying vitamin E directly on the stretch marks.

4. Stretch marks are very sensitive to sunlight. Make sure that you cover the marks when you go out in sun.

5. Massaging with olive oil helps in quick healing of stretch marks. It has been used for generations. Scars disappears easily in a few months.

6. Exfoliation is peeling of upper layer of skin so that new skin can develop. You must exfoliate every 15 days.

Stretch marks are often the result of the rapid stretching of the skin associated with rapid growth (common in puberty) or weight gain (e.g. pregnancy, muscle building, or rapid gain of fat) or in some cases, severe pulling force on skin that overcomes the dermis elasticity. Stretch marks may also be influenced by hormonal changes associated with puberty, pregnancy, muscle building etc.

No stretch marks will form as long as there is support within the dermis. Stretching plays more of a role in where the marks occur and in what direction they run. Stretching alone is not the cause.

A number of causes promote the appearance of stretchmarks: one study of 324 women just after giving birth demonstrated that low maternal age, high body mass index, weight gain over 15 kg (31 pounds) and higher neonatal birth weight were independently associated with the occurrence of striae. Teenagers are at highest risk of developing severe striae

There are possible ways to remove it some are laser treatment some just settle in the natural remedies like olive oil mixed with honey and lemon but the more important thing to consider is the food intake that goes unto healthy lifestyle.
