How to get rid of Stretch Marks
Posted on February 15 2018
Stretch marks are parallel and irregular skin streaks , more or less long, a few millimeters wide, resembling small "welts" of the skin . First red-purplish, they gradually become pearly-white. They appear on bodily areas likely to distend (belly, breasts, thighs, buttocks, hip), when the skin is subjected to a large and rapid stretch: the elastic fibers of the dermis break and the skin "cracks" . This can happen especially among pregnant women and teenage girls . Stretch marks can also occur in case of rapid weight gain .
AVOID THE APPEARANCE OF STRETCH MARKS WITH VEGETABLE OILS AND BUTTERS
Stretch marks are more and more difficult to eliminate as they heal (when the tissue becomes pearly white), so prevention is better than cure. To avoid their appearance, daily apply on areas that are likely to relax nutritious and softening treatments such as vegetable oils of Sweet Almond , Avocado , Macadamia , Wheat Germ, Rosehip or Vegetable Shea Butter.
