How to Get Rid of Stretch Marks Naturally

Can you get rid of stretch marks naturally?

Getting rid of those dreaded silvery or purplish lines without invasive surgery or laser treatments is possible. One option is time. Stretch marks tend to fade naturally over time, but you probably will have to wait a lifetime for this to happen. If sitting around waiting doesn’t appeal to you, here are 3 effective tips on how you can speed up the process naturally.

1.      Exfoliate

Here’s a fun fact: we shed approximately 30,000 to 40,000 dead skin cells every minute. While it sounds like a lot, it is in fact only a very small percentage of the trillions of skin cells that we have. To diminish stretch marks naturally you can help remove dead skin cells from the epidermis and regenerate new ones by exfoliating daily. Dry brushing with a vegetable bristle brush before your shower is a good method or exfoliating in the bath or shower with our Anti-Cellulite Sugar Body Scrub. This amazing scrub will remove dead skin cells, stimulate skin cell regeneration, polish, smooth and nourish the epidermis to gradually diminish stretch marks.

2.      Lose weight

While stretch marks can form because of hormonal disruption such as puberty, pregnancy or menopause, it is commonly the rate at which weight is gained that causes the skin to become scarred. The collagen and elastin support structures in the dermis can’t keep up with rapid weight gain. They become weakened and damaged, resulting in stretch marks on the outer layer of skin, known as the epidermis. Losing weight is the first step to reducing stretch marks and preventing new ones. Our Body Slimfit range of slimming and firming creams contain innovative ingredients to induce powerful, localised fat-burning processes, helping you to lose weight naturally.

To lose weight successfully the Body Slimfit products should be applied to problematic areas twice daily. They should be used in conjunction with regular exercise and a balanced, healthy diet.

3.      Nourish the skin

Skin which is dehydrated and lacking in the vitamins, minerals, amino acids and fatty acids, which are essential for good skin health will not cope as well with sudden weight gain. Healthy skin, which is nourished, supple and has robust collagen and elastin production rates, will withstand rapid stretching and recover with less visible scarring.

Keeping your skin well moisturised with essential nutrients and using a Stretchmark Reductor Serum specifically designed to combat stretch marks is a great way to provide the nourishment it needs for increased resilience.

Stretch Marks

Do stretch marks fade naturally?

Stretch marks do fade naturally over time, slowly losing colour making them less visible. But without assistance, it can take quite a long time for stretch marks to fade and can depend of various factors. Fading may not occur if the skin continues to be damaged, such as with repeated cycles of weight gain and weight loss.

What natural ingredients can help treat stretch marks?

The Body Slimfit Stretch Mark Reductor + Slimming Serum contains a range of natural ingredients to nourish the skin and treat stretch marks. L-carnitine, Spirulina Platensis Extract, Soy Isoflavones, Caffeine Pro-complex, African Baobab Tree Extract, Fisetin and Raspberry Ketone are just a few of the naturally powerful ingredients helping to treat stretch marks. Their combined actives work to inhibit weight gain and improve skin tone and resilience.

Treating stretch marks at the level where the damage begins, within the dermis, is important. Soy Isoflavones, L-Carnitine and Spirulina Platensis Extract are natural ingredients which encourage the regeneration of collagen in the connective tissues and eliminate toxins from fat cells. Extracts from the African Baobab Tree are rich in many vitamins, minerals, essential fatty acids and antioxidants, all of which provide important nutrients to nourish the skin’s supportive structures.

Botanic sources Siegesbeckia Orientalis and Centella Asiatica Extract also stimulate collagen production to firm and strengthen the skin while reducing discolouration.

A healthy balanced diet which is low in sugar, salt and saturated fats and high in vitamins, nutrients and essential fatty acids is another way of providing your body with natural ingredients to improve the quality and resilience of your skin. Drinking plenty of water to keep your skin well hydrated is important for retaining elasticity and preventing stretch marks
