How to use it
Cut into rings a red onion, then take one and massage your stretch marks with it for a few times, morning and evening, at least for 60 seconds. Once you’re finished, put the pieces of onion in a blender and blend them until you get a thick paste. Apply it on the affected area daily, every few hours.
Before going to bed, put some onions in the blender, and then filter the paste. You will get a liquid in which you should soak a cloth. Apply this on your stretch marks during nighttime. Remove the cloth in the morning, rinse with warm water and start the process again. If you don’t like the smell, add in this liquid a few lemon juice drops. This treatment you should use for at least 2 weeks.
