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 ingedients (e.g. sweet almond oil - which works gently, delivers moisturizing 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.
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.
I have a hypertropic scar that is still pretty new but this stuff seems to moisturize it nicely. It has a pleasant smell as well. I haven't really noticed a difference in the scar but burn scars are meant to take a long time to heal. I also like that this is homeopathic medicine so it works with the body to aid in healing.
So far so good!
I started using this from the moment I found out we were pregnant. I'm 24 weeks now and have been using once per day on my belly, back, hips/thighs and so far, no stretch marks. It absorbs really quickly and the scent (IMO) is very mild - that may be different for other women, but it's been fine for me. Highly recommend so far.
