Stretch Marks? Try This.

We all have them, but we wear them proudly. Stretch marks appear in all phases of aging. From puberty till menopause. We need to accept our bodies the way they are because you’re not the only woman in the world with stretch marks!

They are just the natural growth part of every woman’s life. There is nothing we can really do to completely remove stretch marks. However, if you have it flaunt it. You can only change something by loving it first. So stay hydrated, exfoliate often, and stay active.

Studies have shown that stretch marks are actually scars. It happens if the tissue of the skin is rapidly growing or shrinking. We can only reduce scars but not reverse them. It’s really important to keep skin hydrated as well.

The best emollients to keep your skin looking young and healthy-looking contain ingredients like shea/cocoa butter and plenty of coconut oil. You can also try out some self-tanner. Sun damage is not recommended for any type of scaring. Self-tanner will help you give a radiant and healthy look. Always make sure to exfoliate 48-hours before, to avoid any streaks.
