So Summer is right around the corner and that means that dreaded time of year were eventually I will have to wear a bikini, or shorts, or expose a little more flesh than I'm comfortable with. A big reason I'm so unhappy to reveal a little more is because of my scars and stretch marks on my legs. Since umm turning into a women... if you catch my drift, I developed curvy hips and my skins elasticity wasn't quite prepared for this, hence the stretch marks. I feel like stretch marks can be a taboo thing to talk about, they are often associated only with people who are pregnant or had kids or people who are larger. However they are so common, especially on the hips and thighs and I feel like we should be able to talk about them without feeling embarrassed. I also have some pretty bad scars on my right thigh, one more recently from a clumsy shaving accident and one from an incident with a kettle. I'm ridiculously clumsy and this was one of the results of my clumsiness, one freshly boiled kettle over my leg. So when I was given the opportunity to try out this natural scar repairing gel, I thought it would be perfect timing. I have tried out things like Palmer's Cocoa Butter for stretch marks (may I add having a pregnant lady on the bottle didn't help with the self esteem!) and I didn't notice a difference, it did smell great though.
