Vicks VapoRub is the go-to ointment when you have cold or chest congestion. But, over the years, people have been using it to treat various other ailments that have absolutely nothing to do with cold and flu! Treating stretch marks is one of them.

Stretch marks usually appear on the skin as linear streaks. They are caused due to overstretching of the skin. The most common reasons are sudden obesity, sudden weight loss or pregnancy. The most affected places are the thighs, buttocks, breasts, hips, and lower back. Sometimes, they are extremely dark.

Vicks is made up of menthol, eucalyptus oil, camphor, petrolatum, and cedar leaf oil. The combination of the thick oils, menthol, and other cooling agents is great at reducing the vibrancy of the stretch marks.
