DIY Stretch Mark Serum

Over the course of your life, your skin is going to stretch. Whether it’s from growth during puberty or baking a sweet little bun in the oven, to weight gain and loss, it happens. C’est la vie. Not much we can do about it.

For many people, when their skin stretches it is also accompanied by a few marks. Nothing like a stretch mark to remind yourself how much your body has change.

While you may not be able to prevent the stretching, what you can do is give your skin a fighting chance at avoiding and repairing marks.

How, you may ask? A simple DIY stretch mark serum, of course!

The Ultimate DIY Stretch Mark Serum

There’s nothing quite as hydrating and skintastic as a natural and homemade recipe. This stretch mark serum is the perfect spray for everyone, even pregnant mamas. It’s easy to make and works like a charm.

Here’s what you’ll need:

  • 2 tbsp Rosehip seed oil
  • 2 tbsp Jojoba oil
  • 2 tbsp Vitamin E oil
  • 10 drops Neroli oil
  • 7 drops Lavender essential oil
  • 5 drops Lemon essential oil

To make, all you have to do is mix all ingredients in a little glass spray bottle, shake it like crazy and then spritz over your skin and let it soak in the goodness.

Yep, it’s that easy!

**Tip – avoid plastic bottles as some of the oils may react with plastic. Dark, glass containers are best.

Why It Works

Rosehip seed oil is one of the main active ingredients in this spray. It is so important because it helps heal and lighten stretch marks and scarring. It is also incredibly moisturizing and a great carrier oil.

Containing natural trans-retinoic acids, it also helps firm your skin and maintain your skin’s elasticity.

Jojoba oil is one of my faves. I started using it when I found that coconut oil wasn’t soaking into my skin well and causing it to break out. Jojoba oil on the other hand, absorbs super fast. It is full of vitamins and minerals essential to good skin, and mimics the effects of collagen.

Vitamin E oil is a preventive ingredient as it encourages your skins elasticity. If your skin is more elastic, it is able to stretch more easily and rebound to its natural state. Vitamin E is also full of anti-aging and regenerative properties making it an all around awesome ingredient.

Neroli oil helps prevent the appearance of stretch marks by stimulating circulation and encouraging cell regeneration.

Lavender oil not only smells great, but also heals cracked, dry skin.

Lemon oil, which also smells great, helps lighten current scars and stretch marks.

Not only does this DIY stretch mark serum smell great and work wonders, but it is 100%  natural and safe to use. If you want to proactively fight against stretch marks while pregnant you can rest easy that this formula is safe for you and your wee one.

If DIY’s ain’t yo thang, then might I suggest checking out TriLastin SR. We found that its special formula works to quickly and efficiently reduce the look of stretch marks on your skin, giving you fast results in only a couple of weeks.

Clearpores Acne Treatment Systems Review; Does it Really Work

Are you ready to say goodbye to embarrassing acne once and for all?

Of course you are!

Acne is incredibly frustrating. It makes us self conscious and hide our face when we should be going out boldly and confidently, without a care in the world.

What’s most annoying is that common store bought or over the counter pimple products only dry our skin out, make it flaky, red and inflamed. Let’s be real for a minute – many of them simply make the problem worse. Now that is NOT what we’re looking for in an acne treatment.

So let me introduce you to a product that heals from the inside out. Targets your problem at the root and transforms your skin into the luscious, dewy, clear skin you always wanted…

Minimize Acne Scars with MSM

It feels like it’s been ages since I talked about acne with you, so I decided it was time the topic made a reappearance. This may also have something to do with the fact that I woke up with 2 big spots on my face, located in the most obscure area of my cheek.

As I was inspecting these bad boys in the mirror, I couldn’t help but notice a few acne scars. While I’ve been pretty damn lucky to never have serious acne, I’ve definitely had my fair share. Being a picker (is this getting TMI?…Sorrrrrrry!) I never let them be, so needless to say I have a few scars.

To make a rather long and boring story short, I decided it was high time I even those suckers out. I’m pretty good about my skincare routine. I exfoliate regularly and do routine at home microdermabrasion treatments, but these weren’t exactly doing the trick. Being the ever clever DIY diva, I took to the interwebs to conduct some research.

The Best Fake Tanner for a Sunless Glow

Everybody loves a great tan. With it you can bid goodbye to pale skin and say hello to a beautiful glow.

But to get it you have to spend minutes or even hours under the sun and risk damaging your skin. This is why so many women have turned to fake tanners to still get that glow without having to expose their skin to the sun’s killer rays. But even so, the harmful radiation from tanning beds or the hazardous chemicals found in sprays also have their negative effects.

So should we just stop tanning then? Definitely not! [Keep Reading]

5 Ways to Remove Scars

Written by 0 comments

Raise your hand if you have a scar on your body.

Could be it’s from childhood chicken pox, an unfortunate phase of cystic acne during puberty or simply walking into a tree….yes, this has happened to me before!

Whatever the reason behind your scar, the desire to get rid of it is there. After all, scars are only sexy in theory.

There is a big misconception that you can’t actually get rid of scars. To be clear, this isn’t necessarily true. Scars form when the deep, thick layer of skin (known as the dermis) is damaged. Your body will naturally begin to create more collagen fibers to help repair the damage and the resulting skin patch is your scar. The different texture and colour of your scar is what makes it more prominent.

There are so many ways you can help your skin repair scar damage and get back to its gloriously gorgeous original state, which is where today’s infographic comes in! [Keep Reading]

Naturaful- The Natural Breast Enhancement Cream That Works

Let me ask you a somewhat personal question; have you always been comfortable with the size of your breasts?

I know I sure haven’t.

Raised in an all female household (except for my poor father!) there were a lot of boobs. All 3 of my sisters had rather voluptuous racks and so did my mother. Yet, as I continued to age, my own buds did not sprout. To say I was disappointed would be an understatement.

As I entered my 20’s, it was clear that I was never going to grow a pair of lady lumps of my own, so I did what many women in this situation would do…some online research.

It was during one of my online quests that I discovered Naturaful. [Keep Reading]
