How to Get Rid of Stretch Marks!?



Stretch Marks. The 'tiger stripes' for women, the signs of carrying a child. These little purple squiggles can be found on the majority of women you know. 

I'm all about being body confident and embracing my flaws. But at the end of the day, if there's something I don't like about myself and there's a way to fix it, I sure as hell am going to try.

Cocoa butter is something that I first came across as a hormone filled teenager. As adolescence set in, so did the addition of curves and to put it bluntly, a large arse. With that I ended up with some pretty large stretch marks across the whole of my bottom. 

I used a mild cocoa butter I'd been given from Marks and Spencers morning and night to fight the little buggers. Now I can happily inform you that my bum is now stretch mark free. 

Now at the ripe old age of 20 they're back, this time on the tops of my thighs. So I've taken to using my more 'industrial strength' Palmers Cocoa butter. If anyone has been to M&M world in London it smells EXACTLY like that shop - yum. 

I haven't been using the stuff for long and probably wont notice a difference until the marks are gone. But I just wanted to share with you my success story with the wonderful stuff that is cocoa butter, and lets all cross our fingers that my upper thighs win the battle against stretch marks too.
