Dealing With Stretch Marks

Stretch marks can occur as the result of pregnancy, weight changes and the use of certain medications. Women are also at a greater risk for developing this condition than men. This condition can be quite frustrating to deal with. Fortunately, there are things that you can do to reduce the appearance of them.
Moisturize and Massage Your Skin

Good skin elasticity is one of the keys to eliminating and avoiding this problem. You will need to moisturize and massage your skin on a regular basis in order to keep it elastic. Massaging your skin helps treat and prevent stretch marks by promoting new tissue growth. It also helps break down collagen. When collagen bands together, stretch marks can be produced.

Use a Vitamin E Cream

Vitamin E is essential for healthy skin. That is why applying vitamin E cream directly to your skin can help you get rid of this problem. You may not be able to eliminate them completely, but your skin will look better after you apply the vitamin E cream.

Shea Butter

Shea butter helps moisturize your skin. It can also reduce inflammation. You can use Shea butter every day.

Retinoic Cream

Retinoic creams have been shown to be very effective for reducing the appearance of this problem. They help get rid of this problem by reducing collagen production. They are safe to use, but there are some people who should not use them. If you are pregnant or breastfeeding, then you will not be able to use a Retinoic cream. It is also important to note that a prescription is required for a Retinoic cream.
