How Stretch Marks Can Be Prevented or Repaired
A popular home remedy for stretch marks is cocoa butter.

The proteins promote cell regeneration, which improves scars' appearance. Then they thicken epidermal layer, creating a smoother top layer of skin. This further improves look of striae, even striae that are quite old.
