Stretch marks are visible lines on the skin surface, with an off-color hue. Stretch marks are mainly found in the abdominal wall, but can also occur over the thighs, upper arms, buttocks and breasts.

Sometimes stretch marks can cover large areas of the body. While pregnancy is the main cause behind stretch marks, other reasons can be sudden gain or loss in weight, rapid growth, heredity factors, stress and changes in physical conditions.

Stretch marks appear on the skin surface when someone grows quickly, or puts on weight quickly.

Stretch marks can make you feel self-conscious and uncomfortable about your appearance. Fortunately, there are several natural ways to reduce the appearance of stretch marks.

1. Castor Oil

Castor oil, which is used in the treatment of a number of skin problems such as wrinkles, age spots, moles, dark spots, fine lines and pimples, can also be used to get rid of stretch marks.

Apply some castor oil to the stretch marks and gently massage the area in circular motions for 5 to 10 minutes.

Wrap the area with a thin, cotton cloth. Using a hot water bottle or a heating pad, apply some heat to the affected area for at least a half an hour.

Repeat this process daily for a minimum of one month to notice positive results.

2. Aloe Vera

Aloe vera is effective in the treatment of many skin problems. Its healing and soothing properties can be used to get rid of stretch marks. There are a couple of ways to apply it.

You can directly rub aloe vera gel on the affected skin area, leave it on for 15 minutes and then rinse the skin with lukewarm water.

Another option is to make a mixture with one-fourth cup of aloe vera gel, oil from 10 vitamin E capsules and oil from five vitamin A capsules. Rub this mixture onto the skin until fully absorbed. Repeat this process daily.

3. Egg Whites

Eggs are a rich source of protein. For stretch marks, you want to use only the egg whites, which contain amino acids and proteins.

-Whip the whites of two eggs gently with a fork. Clean the affected skin area with water and then apply a thick layer of egg whites with a makeup brush.

-Allow the egg whites to dry completely and then rinse the area with cold water.

-Finally apply some olive oil on the skin to keep it moisturized.

Repeat the process daily for at least two weeks and watch for positive results.

4. Lemon Juice

Another simple way to lessen stretch marks is to use lemon juice. Lemon juice is naturally acidic which helps heal and reduce stretch marks, acne, and other scars.

-Rub fresh lemon juice gently onto the stretch marks using circular motions. Allow the lemon juice to soak into your skin for at least 10 minutes before rinsing it off with warm water.

-Another option is to mix equal quantities of cucumber juice and lemon juice and apply the mixture on the stretch marks.

5. Sugar

Natural white sugar is one of the best natural remedies to get rid of stretch marks. You can use the sugar to exfoliate your skin.

-Mix a tablespoon of raw sugar with some almond oil and a few drops of lemon juice. Mix it well and apply it on the stretch marks and other skin areas.

-Gently rub the mixture on the skin for a few minutes every day before taking a shower.

-Do this for a month or so and watch your stretch marks become lighter.

6. Potato Juice

Potato juice contains vitamins and minerals that foster growth and restoration of skin cells.

-Cut a medium-sized potato into thick slices.

-Take one of the potato pieces and rub it gently on the stretch marks for a few minutes. Make sure the starch from the potato covers the affected area.

-Allow the potato juice to dry for some time and then wash it off with lukewarm water.

The sudden breakup between NBS TV’s Zahara Totto and her boyfriend, Don Solomon Ugwu alias Big Papa (Oga) continue to surface with more secrets spilled regarding their one-year old relationship.

Issues seem not light at all as we may have earlier anticipated, for the motor-mouthed media personality after another video storming social media today showing a bitter fight between Zahara and now ex-boyfriend, Don Solomon.

In the video, the mother of four is seen ridiculously nagging and clinging to her boyfriend as she begs him not call it quits in their relationship.

She is later thumped to the ground continuously by Big Papa giving her no chance again in his life.

The fight is most-likely to have been a continuation of the leaked audio where Oga was hectically trying to conclude his affair with the ‘Uncut’ show host.

By BigEyeUg Team

Songbird Desire Luzinda has been conservative with disclosing her activities ever since she relocated to the United States of America but here, she bumps with it.

The ‘Ekitone’ singer has shocked her fans and social media followers back here home in Uganda after parading her pictures appearing in a medic dress code, suggesting that she is now pursuing a medical career.

Desire has gone further to reveal that she is now a phlebotomist, ready to attend to patients in blood laboratories especially after her successful phlebotomy exam last week.

She also opened up about her academic journey that at most times failed because of her music career dominancy.

At first, she enrolled at Makerere University pursuing a degree in Development Economics but unfortunately dropped out two years later because of her thrilling music career at that time.

She was also backed-up with hopes of accomplishing the studies someday.

The curvaceous-lady later scooped another chance and got registered at Nkozi University for Development Studies but her love for education was ruined likewise it was at the first time.

This time round, she failed to have her first exam because it collided with her UK music tour dates.

Here, Desire got discouraged more than never before even when I knew the granite importance of Education.

However, her dream of further education was brilliantly forwarded of recent after bearing more commitment and desire enroll again in another preferable field, which she believes is according to God’s wish.

Desire also vows to stick to her goal this time round amidst all hardships she may meet.

Read her statement in full;

This week as I was preparing for my Phlebotomy exam, many thoughts came to my mind.

Many years ago, I enrolled at Makerere University pursuing a degree in Development Economics which I did not complete because my music career had kicked off in high gear. Having dropped off in year 2, at the back of my mind I knew someday I will bounce back and pursue further studies.

Years later, I enrolled at Nkozi university for Development Studies which I barely did for a year because I had a UK tour that my manager ‘then’ committed to and the dates collided with my first Exam period. I began to get tired of trying even when I knew the granite importance of Education.

Fast forward, as I prepared to enroll ‘again’ little did I know God was preparing for me a career totally different. And while many classmates dropped off because of the virtual classes, I said to myself, “not the third time! I have to do this!” So I chose to push even when it was so tough. And here I am on a many years journey of a career very interesting. My point is, never stop trying at something that makes you a better person. People will always talk but would you rather give them talk of you being successful or a failure?! IT DOES NOT MATTER HOW MANY TIMES YOU FALL BUT THAT ONE TIME YOU RISE UP AND MAKE IT RIGHT. YOUR JOURNEY IN LIFE IS PERSONAL SO CHASE IT PERSONALLY – Desire

Desire moved to the USA in 2018 and since then, she has often been reported pursuing pastorialship until today when she has buried the rumors.

She breads together with her daughter Michelle.
