Vaporub contains some ingredients that are very beneficial for the skin like camphor, eucalyptus oil, and menthol which softens the skin and improves its elasticity. This recipe will make stretch marks less visible. Of course, it won’t fix it overnight because stretch marks signify deep damage in the skin and you may have to do the wrap quite a few times. But it certainly is worth giving it a go.

  • Rub a thin layer of Vaporub on the affected areas.
  • Wrap it with plastic wrap.
  • Leave it on for at least 2 hours or overnight.
