Is there any sort of cream that gets rid of stretch marks?

Theyre not from having a baby or anything I just gained weight and Im now in the process of losing it. If I got rid of these stretch marks it would make me want to be in a bathing suit more and would make me eat healtier in order to get ready for summer. So please tell me if you found anything for stretchmarks that gets rid of them
Thanks

Spa Style Herbal Body Wrap

* 6 cups very hot water
* 1/2 cup dried chamomile
* 1/2 cup dried rosemary
* 1/4 cup fresh mint or peppermint leaves
* Cheesecloth or wide cotton gauze
* Linen or loose-weave cotton, cut into long strips 4 to 6 inches wide
* Roll of plastic wrap

Bring the water to a boil and remove it from the heat (or pour it into a stoppered sink). Wrap the herbs in the cheesecloth or gauze, making a large bundle, and push them down into the water with a large spoon or other utensil. Cover the infusion to contain the steam and allow it to sit for 15 to 20 minutes.

Uncover the herbal infusion, stir it once or twice, and add the long strips of linen or cotton. When the fabric is saturated, wring it out and wrap the strips around your body (like a mummy) except your head, lower arms, and feet. The infusion and fabric should be hot, but not so hot they will burn you!

When you’re done, repeat the wrapping process by covering the fabric with the plastic wrap.

Calendula Cleansing Milk: Beauty In Your Back Yard

Inspired by Better Basics for the Home, by Annie B. Bond (Three Rivers Press, 1999).

Pot marigolds, also called calendula flowers, are blooming in many gardens at this time of year and their petals make a wonderful cleansing milk that will help to heal and nourish your skin. (If you don’t have calendula growing in your yard, you can buy the dried flowers inexpensively online.)

Calendula is a powerful all-purpose skin-helper, since it is highly emollient, antibacterial, antiviral, and anti-inflammatory. This cleansing milk is a healing addition to your beauty routine.

INGREDIENTS

* 4 tablespoons avocado oil
* 1 tablespoon fresh calendula flowers or 1 teaspoon dried
* 2 tablespoons aloe vera gel
* 25 drops grapefruit seed extract

1. In a double boiler over very low heat, heat the oil and calendula flowers together for 30 minutes. Allow to cool, then strain out the flowers and discard them.

2. Stir the aloe vera and the grapefruit seed extract into the cooled oil, mixing well to combine.

To Use:

Scoop some of the milk onto your fingers and massage gently into skin. Rinse thoroughly with warm water.

How to Remove Skin Tags

Skin tags can be irritating and most people consider them unattractive, especially when they seem to pop up on your face.  Unfortunately, making frequent trips to the doctor’s office to get them removed can be just as irritating and definitely more expensive.

Thankfully there are a few different ways to remove them at home once you are sure that what you are removing is a skin tag.  It is important that the first couple of times you develop skin tags you confirm this diagnosis with your physician.  There may be times when other skin conditions occur that may slightly mimic a skin tag and if you aren’t familiar with the condition you may cause yourself more harm than good.

Skin tags grow slowly while others skin growths may grow more quickly.  They are usually small and don’t often reach a size that is greater than one half an inch.  They can’t appear to be a flap of skin or a small round mass that’s attached by a stalk.  The skin you are evaluating should be soft and movable with a color that is similar to the rest of the skin that surrounds it.
