Industry Insider: How to Get Rid of Stretch Marks

As an industry insider I work with seemingly flawless models and magicians (the make-up artists and hairstylists that make them appear even more flawless.) And, with the "hurry up to wait" life of a stylist, and plenty of time on my hands during hair and make-up I began chatting with one of the models who has a toddler son, but whose skin and body is in absolutely perfect shape... and here is a secret she told me. She used a Clarisonic on her bum to get rid of her stretch marks. Apparently Clarisonic not only cleans your face, but if you add skin scrub and go to town regularly on your stretch marks it can help exfoliate them away!

I recommend trying Tree Nut's Shea Sugar Brazilian nut scrub in combination with a Clarisonic or an exfoliating scrubber. I have found that the exfoliating and the movement of the brush or a manual scrubber is the key to reducing the marks and also reducing cellulite.

I purchase my Shea Sugar scrub from Ulta, where I typically find it on sale, sometimes as buy one get one half off. I have also found manual scrubbers and brushes at Marshall's, TJ Maxx, and Ulta as well. When using a manual scrubber I scrub in circular motions.

After patting down with a towel, I recommend applying Strivectin. This little cream works miracles, and I have found it on the cheap at Marshall's, Off 5th (the Saks outlet), and Costco.

And, if you're limited on time, and want to get a great professional kick start on this try a scrub treatment at a spa. If in LA I recommend Olympic Spa. After just one scrub treatment, I noticed a decrease in the appearance of stretch marks.
