How you can Prevent Stretch Marks
Stretch marks cause no real physical harm, but they can affect your self-esteem. Stretch marks usually appear around the abdomen, the hips and thighs and the upper arms. They are the result of pregnancy, growth spurts, or fluctuations in weight due to weight gain or weight loss.
Stretch marks appear because there is so much pressure excerted on the skin that it is pushed beyond its elastic limit. The extreme push produces a tear that the body tries to repair by producing scar tissue to compensate for the excessive stretching. Initially stretch marks are reddish-purple but eventually turn a silvery-white color.
For the most part, this scar tissue can be covered up with clothing. However, suffering from stretch marks may keep many people from wearing sleeveless shirts or bikinis during the summer months.
Stretch Marks Prevention
To help prevent the appearance of stretch marks, you must make sure that your skin is at its best. This means that the skin should be able to stretch with great ease to accommodate a change in body size.
In order to avoid stretch marks, it is helpful to use a high quality skin cream that contains elastin and collagen stimulators. These stimulators will encourage the production of elastin and collagen while preventing the appearance of stretch marks.
Another precaution that you should take is to gain or lose weight slowly. By doing this, your will give you skin the chance to stretch gradually without tearing.
Unluckily for some, genetics plays an important role in the development of stretch marks. Therefore, it may seem almost impossible to avoid getting stretch marks. However, if genetics plays a part in your stretch mark formation then you need to find a real stretch mark cream capable of getting to the root cause of your condition.
Creams that contain snail serum and/or rose hip oil are ideal for treating stretch marks. These types of natural stretch marks creams contain biological activators like those of your body's own regenerative processes. These activators are capable of triggering and controlling the synthesis of collagen, elastin and GAGs and the replacement of flawed skin with healthy skin cells.
With daily use these types of creams can 'digest' flawed cells, gently dissolve skin lesions, reduce and even erases all signs of stretch marks. They can also destroy pathogens and trigger the regeneration of normal collagen thereby improving elasticity.
Microdermabrasion is also used in treating stretch marks. This isn't a cure-all for stretch marks, so keep that in mind when looking for an effective stretch marks removal method.
BIOBODYCREAM is a natural stretch mark removal cream that contains special natural ingredients that can help you rid stretch marks from your skin. This cream can be used by itself or as part of a stretch marks treatment that includes a healthy diet.
