Stretch Marks Info
Stretch marks are a form of scarring on the skin, caused by tearing of the dermis, which may diminish over time, but they will not disappear completely.
They are often the result of stretching of the skin associated with both rapid weight change and growth (like during pregnancy, usually during the last trimester,) and usually on the stomach. The marks can also occur on the breasts, thighs, hips, lower back and buttocks.
Some forms of stretch marks are believed to be influenced by hormonal changes associated with puberty, pregnancy and hormone replacement therapy. Some people who practice intense body building get stretch marks after they retire.
There are natural health remedies that may help in reducing the incidence of stretch marks as well as treating the symptoms. Massaging the affected areas with oils that contain specific ingredients (e.g. sweet almond oil - which works gently, delivers moisturising essential fatty acids that keep skin supple and protected from drying.) Pregnancy is a big job for muscles and skin, here, organic arnica flower extract may help ease tightness. Read more on how natural remedies might help reduce stretch marks after pregnancy or weight loss on our blog.
Antioxidants such as Vitamin E work to protect cells in the body from damage caused by free radicals, which are potentially damaging by-products of energy metabolism. Vitamin E helps to prevent LDL (bad) cholesterol damage from free radicals hereby protecting against cell damage may also be beneficial in treating stretch marks.
Very good results from this product
I bought this to try on the skin surrounding an abdominal wound caused by a car accident; that had reacted to 3 months use of taping over the wound that was slow to heal. Within days the reddened raised skin and itchiness diminished and within a week antihistamines were able to be stopped. After 2 weeks the skin was back to normal. I am impressed with this product.
Divine oil for face
Just love this facial/neck oil. Smells lovely and skin looks and stays hydrated all day.
I am so glad that I tried this oil. My skin looks awesome. Doesn't smell that great but I added a couple of drops of the Dolphin Essential Oils to the bottle and it worked a treat. Love this product so much that I am now going to try the entire skin care range.
