  2. Hi Bhanu,

    THis is my first comment on IMBB. I have been following IMBB for the past 4 months. And I simply love it. The best part is, this site is not blocked at my office. :-)))

    Just wanted to share my experience with my stretch marks. I completely got rid of them with the following procedure. The key is to be patient and follow it religiously for 6 months or so. But u can get rid of it permanently

    Ingredients required:
    Sesame oil (also known as Gingely Oil or Til Oil) – 5-6 tablespoons (add or reduce as required)
    Turmeric Powder (This is added for its antibacterial property. If u use “kasthuri Manjal” it would be more effective) – 2 teaspoons
    Fenugreek Seeds – 2 teaspoons
    Neem Leaves – 5-6 washed and cleaned (remove the dampness by drying them with a clean cotton cloth)

    Heat the sesame oil (do not overheat it as it will lose its medicinal property). Add all the above ingredients one by one and allow it to cool. Store this in a airtight container. Apply this oil on the areas of stretch marks. Let is soak for 2 hours. Take bath using besan powder or green gram dhall powder along with turmeric powder (or kasthuri manjal). Please do not use soap.

    I had severe itching problem all over my body during pregnance. My mom suggested me this procedure. I religiously followed it twice a day for almost 6 months to keep my itching at bay. And Voila, I was surprised to see that I did not have any stretch marks after my delivery. Not even one. I have a sooper soft glowing tummy now. You have to be very patient to follow this.

    Do give it a try.

    take care

  3. I know of many people who have got stretch marks due to weight loss, weight loss can be great! but not so good when it comes with stretch marks, i have found that using bio oil has been the most successful way to get rid of them, and lots of places do it cheap these days too!
    whatever you do, stay away from surgery! its too expensive, especially when it can be easily done with creams!

    thanks 🙂
