(NaturalNews) In today`s world of expensive chemical peels and laser treatments, natural scar and stretch mark remedies are more relevant than ever. Treating our skin as nature intended is the best way to prevent and heal tissue damage like scars and stretch marks. Using natural remedies to treat scars can restore your skin`s natural ability to heal, without exposing your skin to chemicals or investing in costly treatment. Here are five effective remedies for scars and stretch marks:

Coconut Oil

Unlike commercial skin care products that only mask the symptoms of damaged skin, coconut oil works with your body to protect and heal your skin. The medium chain fatty acids in coconut oil actually perform like antioxidants, preventing and reversing free radical damage. Free radicals attack the skin`s connective tissues and reduce their ability to regenerate. Coconut oil can be used daily (both internally and externally) to combat this free radical damage and to soften the skin.

Vitamin E

Vitamin E is one of the best known natural scar treatment remedies. It`s said to stimulate the formation of collagen, which can improve skin texture and strength. A concentrated vitamin E oil formula (or simply the contents of a vitamin E capsule) can be used directly on scars. (Vitamin E should only be used on scars that have fully healed, as it can interfere with wound healing.)

Aloe Vera

Aloe is known for its ability to regenerate skin tissue. Aloe vera fights inflammation and provides soothing moisture to the skin that maximizes your skin`s restorative properties.

Gotu Kola

This herb has been used for many years in Eastern medicine. Gotu kola is prized for its ability to combat inflammation, speed healing and improve circulation. All of these properties make it an excellent natural scar and stretch mark treatment. Clinical research has demonstrated gotu kola`s ability to improve the appearance of scars. It can be applied topically or taken as a supplement in pill or tincture form.

Tea Tree Oil

This essential oil is known for its uses as an antibacterial, antifungal and antiviral agent. But tea tree oil is also lesser known for its skin healing properties. Many users have reported that applying tea tree oil to scars and stretch marks on a daily basis works to reduce the appearance noticeably. It can be diluted if it causes skin irritation. The only downside is tea tree oil`s strong medicinal odor. And keep in mind that tea tree oil should never be used internally.
