Getting Rid of Those Annoying Stretch Marks
How do you get rid of stretch marks?
As we get older, our bodies change dramatically and we find ourselves constantly trying to control the changes – from skin damage, wrinkles, weight gain and stretch marks to greying hair. Luckily there are easy solutions to help us with each of these.
You’ve got the sunblock covered, you’re onto the anti-aging creams and you’re keeping the cellulite at bay with a healthy diet exercise and weight loss creams whilst colouring your hair with ammonia-free hair colour. But what do you do about reducing the visibility of those strange purple silvery streaks a.k.a stretch marks?
Our Body Slimfit Stretch Mark Reductor + Slimming Serum is easy to apply and helps to reduce the appearance of stretch marks if used regularly. This stretch mark reductor cream can also be used as a prevention measure if you want to keep stretch marks at bay.
It uses complex Pearl extract with proteolytic Papain extract to gently exfoliate the skin and stimulate the production of collagen. Papain extracts slough off dead skin cells on the surface and hydrolysed Pearl extract is a powerful antioxidant which stimulates new skin growth and regenerates collagen at a cellular level. Together they work to repair the deeper layers of the skin and help reduce the appearance of stretchmarks.
What are stretch marks?
Typically, stretch marks will present as small bands of uneven, parallel lines on the skin. They are different in colour and texture from the rest of your skin which is why they tend to stand out. They often have a silvery appearance and can range in colour from various shades of purple through to pink or even light grey.
How do you remove stretch marks?
A non-invasive method of removing stretch marks is to follow a regular skincare routine with products that are specially designed to target stretchmarks and reduce fat-cells.
Step 1: Use an anti-cellulite scrub to exfoliate your skin regularly. The Alpha Keri Sugar Body Scrub contains coffee seed oil that is shown to stimulate production of collagen and elastin that promotes skin smoothness and reduces appearance of skin imperfections.
Step 2: Use the Body Slimfit Stretch Mark Reductor + Slimming Serum twice daily to fade stretchmarks. Apply to targeted areas only and rub in a circular motion.
Repairing the damaged skin with regular applications of the bio-enzyme collagen-filler found in our stretch mark reductor cream will help to reduce existing stretch marks and the active ingredients will also prevent new ones from developing.
Step 3: Remember to hydrate the rest of your body with an ultra-moisturising cream such as the Intensive Body Cream to promote skin elasticity and suppleness.
What causes stretch marks?
Rapid weight gain in both men and women places pressure on the skin’s connective tissues and elastic structure. When it can’t keep up with the rate of weight gain, the epidermis is damaged and stretch marks can form. The stretched skin undergoes strain at the dermal layer causing the collagen matrix support system to break down. In turn this causes underlying damage which results in visible stretch marks on the skin’s surface.
In women hormonal changes such as puberty, pregnancy and menopause can be associated with rapid, excessive weight gain and a weakening of the collagen levels along with slowed collagen renewal rates that come with age. Collagen is necessary for supporting the skin and giving it that youthful, supple appearance. When it is undermined and weakened for any reason it shows on the skin’s surface as stretch marks.
How do you get rid of stretch marks fast?
The fastest way to get rid of stretch marks is by using a cream specifically designed to repair skin structure and regenerate collagen at a cellular level. The Body Slimfit Stretch Mark Reductor + Slimming Serum works on a number of levels, improving the skin’s appearance and preparing it to absorb the active ingredients which will address the underlying causes of stretch marks. Active ingredients will help to break down fats which contribute to weight gain while others enable new skin cell growth.
