7 Foods That Help Erase Stretch Marks
It doesn’t matter if you’re thick or thin, stretch marks can grow on your body. If used correctly, food can be the gift that keeps on giving when it comes to our skin. Check out how to use food to get rid of stretch marks…fast!

2. Potatoes – To get specific, cut your potato into thick slices. Rub the pieces over your stretch marks, making sure your slice is juicy. Allow it to dry and then wash the residue off with warm water.
3. Olive oil – It’s high in Vitamin E, which is great for your skin. If you’d like to keep it for tonight’s stir-fry, you can also use straight up vitamin E oil — even the stuff infused with lavender, jasmine, and rosemary if you’d like. As long as it has a high concentration of Vitamin E, you’re good to go. Your skin will soften with olive oil, and when it softens, it expands, closing the gaps on your stretch marks. Some say castor oil is also as effective as any home remedy can be.
4. Eggs – Rub egg whites on your belly. Time to get icky, eh? Hopefully it’ll be worth it. The protein in egg whites is purported to be super good for your skin and stretch marks in particular. Rub on the stuff three times a day for maximum fading
