Is This The Miracle Cure For Stretchmarks?
A mum-of-one has shared incredible images on social media showcasing her secret weapon to banish stretch marks for good.
Chantelle Clarke, from Alberta in Canada who gave birth in December said she was experimenting with breastmilk at home, applying it to one side of her tummy and the results are incredible.
In her post, she shows how breastmilk helped her 'tiger stripes' fade in just a few short weeks. In one image you can see the lines have faded dramatically going from "dark red to light red".
"I can't believe the difference!!" she wrote.
"For any moms out there breastfeeding put a little on those tiger stripes."
"I rub it into my tummy while nursing and lather it on so it's almost dripping off. I let it air dry and just pull my shirt over after."
Chantelle reveals she has been applying breastmilk to her stretchmarks just over three weeks each time she nurses her two-month-old daughter, Sophia Lee.
"I noticed a big difference not just on colouring but also in depth of my stretch marks. I posted this after my mom convinced me to share with other moms. I cannot promise it will work 100% for everyone but it definitely helps," she said.
In recent days, Chantelle updated her post adding two more images while also declaring she was not a fake as some people have assumed.
"I know a lot of people think this is fake but it honestly is not. I am on day 6 of starting on the other side of my tummy. They have gone from dark red to light red now. Starting to get light purple on edges."
She is adamant that not only is the breastmilk helping with her stretch marks visible appearance but its also helping with the depth of her scars.
She also added that she doesn't see anything wrong with stretch marks but just can't believe her eyes.
Her post has been shared over 14,000 times with over 7,000 people commenting since it went live.
One woman tagged her friend asking if she can "borrow your boobs when the baby is born."
Another believes breastmilk is magical, writing: "Breastmilk works on everything!"
While mum mother wrote: "People should embrace their tiger stripes some women will never get them and never know the feeling of growing a little human inside creating these marks #beproud #bodyconfident."
