HEALTH ISSUE: Stretch marks

SYMPTOMS: After having my daughter, I noticed reddish-purple marks had formed on my belly.

HEALTH RECOMMENDATIONS: I went to my dermatologist, who prescribed me a retinoid to help stimulate collagen production. On top of this, I tried a few natural options to speed up the process. Each day, I massaged aloe vera into my stretch marks to assist with fading.

THE RESULTS: While my stretch marks haven’t completely disappeared, they certainly have decreased in length and width. They have also turned a whitish colour, which makes them much less noticeable.
