Quercetin is a substance with anti-inflammatory properties, which is found in many drugs that repair and heal diseased cells. For this reason, onion is used for years as a remedy for stretch marks and scars. Do not worry about the smell, it can be removed.
Here’s how to prepare the miraculous remedy that gets you rid of stretch marks and scars:
Cut red onion rings, then take one and massage the stretch marks with it for a few times, in the morning and in the evening, at least for 60 seconds. Once you’re done, put the pieces of onion in a blender and blend until you get a thick paste. Apply the resulting paste on the affected area twice a day.
Before going to bed, put some onions in the blender, then filter the paste. Soak a dry cloth in the obtained liquid, and cover the affected areas with it. Keep the cloth on overnight.
In the morning remove the cloth, and rinse with lukewarm water. If the smell of onion is too strong for you, add a few drops of lemon juice. Please note that this remedy will not help to get rid of stretch marks overnight, but must be followed for several months.
A simpler option is to extract the juice of two onions and then mix it with glycerin. Keep this in a glass jar. Use this mixture to reduce the appearance of stretch marks. Apply every morning and evening on the affected area, gently massaging the skin. For noticeable effects, this treatment should be done at least 3 months.
