Bothered by stretch marks and wondering where they came from? As per its name, stretch marks are the lines that are formed on your skin when some of the elastic fibres under the surface of your skin have been torn -- mainly due to weight fluctuations, pregnancy, or even dry skin.
Beautiful skin can be yours again
Since your skin is stretched for the most part of your pregnancy, the collagen and elastin fibres (that give your skin its suppleness) start to tear. So, when your skin tries to go back to normal, you’re left with those silvery strips of scars known as stretch marks.
Some women can get red or purple marks along their skin at first. This is scar tissue from the lower layers of the skin that surfaces to the top. A few months after childbirth these marks fade into white or silvery scars with uneven texture on various body parts--including the belly, buttocks, thighs, hips, and breasts.
You’re not alone in wanting to go back to pre-pregnancy skin
While a lot of mothers consider stretch marks to be a badge of honour and a mark of love, it is perfectly fine for you to want your pre-pregnancy skin back for your pre-pregnancy clothes including those beloved bikinis and cropped tops; and you aren't any less of a mother for desiring it. In fact, these marks can even become itchy and irritated, in turn worsening appearance and proving to be quite bothersome.
You don't have to live with stretch marks anymore
How to get rid of stretch marks
Here are some useful tips that you may adopt to help you get back your beautiful skin:
1. Eat food rich in antioxidants and collagen stimulators
Helping your body produce more collagen isn’t just going to heal your stretch marks—it’s going to make your whole body glow from within! So help yourself to zinc-rich foods like fish and Brazil nuts along with food high in antioxidants such as carrots, sweet potatoes, and blueberries.
Nothing tones you better than good exercise. Exercising not only helps your body recover from the pregnancy but your skin will also become more elastic.
3. Try out Gly Derm Stretch Mark Cream
This stretch mark cream delivers on its promise thanks to the components that specifically target the damage done to your skin and the stretch marks that follow.
While Gly Derm Stretch Mark Cream delivers results, combining its application along with a diet of fruits rich in antioxidants and exercising to improve skin elasticity and muscle tone can help bring out those results much sooner.
