Stretch Marks? This is one of the issues that every woman hates about her skin. Visible lines appear on our skin because the dermis cannot stretch quickly as the body expands due to the rapid change in the body such as pregnancy, weight gain or weight loss, and for hereditary factors.
Luckily, there are still ways to prevent, reduce ,and remove the stretch marks.
You just need to invest time, money and make sure that you make it as your daily routine.
Here are some of stretch marks prevention and treatment:
Buy a cream or lotion that is rich in in Vitamin E, since it has the ability to help the skin cells regenerate and replace the dead skin cells. While this may not totally remove the stretch marks, Vitamin E can improve your skin’s blood circulation that also helps in boosting the natural production of collagen making the skin firmer and more elastic.
- Keep Hydrated
Water has the ability to detoxify your body that flushes the free radicals that contributes to drying and flaking of the skin.
Having regular exercise retains your skin elasticity by improving your blood circulation making it more able to stretch as it grows. Also when you exercise,the tendency is your muscles will strengthen and that will make your skin tighter.
- Have a Skin Nourishing Diet
The way we eat affects our skin. If you have a poor diet, it may slow down the skin cells’ activity in boosting production of collagen. Eat foods that are high in vitamin A,C, E and Omega 3, because those are the vitamins that protect the skin cell membrane, repair skin tissue and keep your skin glow.
- Stretch Mark Removal Creams
There are also effective creams that are intended to reduce or lighten the stretch marks, you just have to make sure that those creams are recommended by dermatologists to avoid skin irritation or rashes.
- Laser Resurfacing Treatments
While there are topical creams available for stretch marks removal, we cannot assure how long you should use the products or how effective they are. Some tend to be ineffective since the products depend on case-to-case basis, like old stretch marks which are very hard to remove. With technology nowadays, it is possible to get rid of all your stretchmarks, whether they are old or new, and wherever part of your body they are on. Fractional CO2 Laser Treatment is one of the best procedures to treat those old stretchmarks that cannot be removed by skin products or ordinary laser treatment.
