What can really be done about stretch marks?

One of the things I am becoming more and more aware of through my friends (female in particular) is the subject of stretch marks.

We’ve all heard of them, the majority of us have no doubt experienced them for ourselves at some point either through giving birth, losing or gaining weight, or simply through natural stretching of the skin. But one question we all want to know the answer to is: how do we get rid of the unsightly, fine silvery white lines, which can play havoc with our confidence when it comes to wearing the clothes we love.

Stretch Marks affect thousands of people, regardless of age or situation, many of us wish we could find a way to quickly get rid of the stretch marks. Searching through various posts in pregnancy and weight loss forums highlights just how common and distressing this problem is. Through these forums there are also some good tried and tested remedies which might be worth a try at home.

One stretch mark sufferer added a good amount of glycerine to coca butter cream and massaged it on the effected area after they showered every day, religiously for a year and the stretch marks never show on their skin any more. One thing to note here is the fact that it is all these creams and oils must be massaged on to the skin. Without some amount of massage none of these work. Just dedicate about 5 min of your after shower time to massage and you should see results.

Another suggested using a coffee/brown sugar/coconut oil body scrub combined with daily moisturising with coconut oil after showering really had a great effect.

The SkinBase Facial™ is a proven treatment for stretchmarks. Elasticity plays an important part in how stretch marks form, and is also an important factor in how stretch marks can be quickly removed using The SkinBase Facial™. Stretch marks form because a certain hormone becomes overactive and stops the skin from producing collagen and elastin fibers responsible for keeping growing skin taut – The SkinBase Facial™ targets the problem area and through the fine crystals stimulates elastin and collagen, getting rid of stretch marks none invasively and painlessly.
