Hi Priyanka,

 Thank you so much for liking Wise She.
Stretch marks treatment – as far as I know there is no permanent solution of stretch marks.You can just lighten them up .For this I will recommend few things.

 You can try  Body Shop cocoa butter creamy body shop which has been reviewed here.With this regular exfoliation of the body part where stretch marks has occurred is  important.You can use any scrub and then apply the lotion or oil.This way the effect of the cream or oil is much better.

You can use Shea butter or coconut oil also .Both are intensely moisturizing and helps in removing stretch marks.


 You can also make stretch mark remedy at home.This was told to me by one of my friend who had many stretch marks as she lost lot of weight.


Stretch marks removal home remedy

In a blender take 1. cup olive oil , 1/4th cup aloevera gel and break 6 vitamin E capsules and 4 vitamin A capsules in it.Store it in a container and place it in a refrigerator.Apply this mixture where ever you have stretch marks every night before going to the bed .This will suit most sensitive of skin and you will see the difference with in a month.

Dark Underarms

Home remedies for dark underarms –

For dark armpits stop using razor and get your self waxed.If it is difficult  for you to visit parlor every 10 days or then you can try veet wax removing strips.They remove the arm pits hair easily.

Low quality deodorants also darken the armpits so use perfume instead or apply alum powder on your arm pits.
You can apply coconut oil or vitamin E oil every day before going to the bed.Even applying cucumber juice on armpits helps a lot.

Do you know any product or herbal remedy can help Priyanka?

  2. Great tips!! The strecth marks tip is really great. I'll ahve to tell one of my friends about it.

    Razor definitely adds to the darkness. I have seen my underarms darker when i apply deos directly as you mentioned. So, I stop applying deos directly on to the skin and use a cloth ( handkerchief or cotton cloth)before spraying on to it. Using milk lightens the darkness in my case.

  3. I suffered with the same problem-Dark armpits. For the last 20 days I have been using the follwoing recepie which has done miracle. Take 4 table spoon Masoor dal (lentil),10 peanuts.Paste all the ingredients separately & store in air tight container.Take 1 table spoon masoor dal,1 tea spoon peanut paste & add a pinch of turmeric paste (I use turmeric from my garden), mix the ingredients well.Apply it before bath on your armpits & wait for five minutes.Scrub off & rinse with water,apply moisturizer/body butter/lotion as you like.You will start getting the result within 7 days of application.

  4. Hi Anamika…I'm a first time commenter on your blog…I really appreciate your easy recipes and herbal remedies

    The easiest tip which I would suggest to Priyanka for dark underarms is to use dove deodorants…the ones with 1/4th moisturising cream…it made a big difference for me atleast…

    Oh yes…and switch to waxing underarms instead of shaving…

    Hope this helps

  7. Well…I used to have dark underarms…until I started using the dove deo…within two months, my underarms were no longer dark but had reverted back to skin colour…don't know if it will work for everyone but it's worth a try…

  9. I think the genes too is the reason why some moms do not have any stretch marks after giving birth to their babies. Me and my mom are one of those who doesn’t have marks at all. But I was using bio oil during that time. My mom told me she didn’t have anything that prevents one on having stretch marks. She just told me she only do exercise.
