Stretch Marks

Stretch marks are caused by rapid stretching of the skin, e.g. growth spurt during puberty, weight gain, pregnancy or muscle building. Stretch marks can appear anywhere on the body, the most common areas are the abdomen, breasts, upper arms, thighs and hips.

While there is much debate on their effectiveness, Creams and lotion containing Cocoa butter may help reduce stretch marks. Vitamin E oil may also help reduce the marks. Use it daily for a couple of weeks to see whether this will help you to avoid more expensive procedures. Stretch marks normally fade over time. Eating a healthy diet of Fresh fruit and vegetables daily will help build collagen and strengthen skin elasticity.

For stretch marks, I perosnally love to use Dari Natural's Tropical Butter. It's made from unrefined shea butter and pure lanolin. I love this stuff! It also helps to heal scars, wounds and burns.

I was interested in your thoughts on cellulite. I gained my while pregnant but have sadly never lost them - 20 years have now past. I tried some oil but that didn't improve them. I am happy I am eating a healthy diet. Do you have any other suggestions?
