Anytime you gain or lose weight, your skin tries to adjust accordingly. Unfortunately, this sometimes leaves visible stretch marks on your skin. Pregnant women commonly experience stretch marks. Rapid weight gain can cause drastic stretch marks, as well, which remain even once the weight is lost. Some individuals acquire stretch marks during puberty as their body grows. These marks remain long after the growth is over.
Fortunately, there are many products on the market that address the issue of stretch marks. Some can be applied regularly to avoid the development of stretch marks. These products are ideal for pregnant women as they are formulated to be safe for the mother and the fetus and are targeted at addressing stretch marks before they develop.
Other products work to repair skin that already shows the signs of stretch marks. These products work by diminishing the appearance of this type of scarring. Nourishing ingredients heal the tissue underneath the stretched skin and work to rejuvenate the tissue on the surface, making stretch marks less visible. There are natural alternatives for people with sensitive skin. Products come in a range of forms, from daily lotions to specialized treatments, oils, serums, and creams. Formulas should be gentle on the skin but powerful and effective for best results.
