We hate them! Stretch marks! There is nothing worse than finding them on your skin. We know that we hate them, but we know that there are some ways to get rid of them or hide them. We want to educate you about stretch marks and what to do with them.
Why do we get them?
There seems to be an ongoing battle with our changing bodies. As we age, we start to develop differences in our skin. One of these changes is stretch marks. Why do we get stretch marks? We get stretch marks when our bodies start to gain and lose weight. The skin is being stretched in or out and this is the cause of stretch marks. This is why pregnant women get them and people who work out. As our bodies begin to change, our skin feels it too. This is what makes stretch marks happen to us. Some stretch marks are pink and purple, while others can look white and puffy. It basically depends on what type of skin you have that determines what type of stretch marks you get.
Can we get rid of stretch marks? There are some methods to try that have shown results. Results may differ for everyone, so if one is not working for you, try others. One of these methods is by using lotions that contain cocoa butter. Cocoa butter contains nutrients in it that help to firm and tighten the skin. The antioxidants in cocoa butter help your skin to fight off free radicals that can be the cause of your stretch marks.
You can also try changing your diet and getting more exercise. If you have gained a lot of weight, it is important to try and lose any that could be bad for your health. By losing some unwanted pounds, you may be able to get those stretch marks to go away too. Eating healthier can help you in losing weight, so make sure that you look at what you're eating and the amount of water you're drinking as well.
Stretch marks are a big pain, but you can follow these steps to try and avoid them. Diet and exercise can help a lot, so be sure to take a look at your lifestyle first and then determine if you do need any extra help getting rid of them.
