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.
This oil is very runny almost like water and when applied on the skin its absorbed quickly. Not sticky at all.
Love this oil
Great for both pregnancy belly and as a nourishing layer under my daily spf moisturiser.
Doesn't feel too greasy but very hydrating.
Great value rosehip oil
Great value for money - especially for a cold-pressed oil. Is great to add a couple of drops to my moisturiser and saves on having to buy a night cream. Also helps makeup go on nicely - better than a primer and great for my skin.
