Opinions on Getting Rid of Stretch Marks * What you need is natural products that will repair and exfoliate your skin. The skin has 7 layers (3 main layers, 4 sub-lay…ers) and what you need is something that can repair your skin from the bottom up. Not over-the-counter products that contain damaging chemicals and mineral oil (a byproduct of making gasoline, which is very bad). Stretch marks are actually just be damaged skin. Most of the time people use the products I mentioned above; however, that will not help. The skin needs to be repaired in a natural way, not forced (which is what chemicals do). You need natural products -- and not only that, but the right formulation. Also, it needs to be trans-dermal (having the ability to penetrate) to repair from the bottom up. * Nothing will help.

Before we tackle the topic of how to eliminate stretch marks, it is equally as important to define what stretch marks are and where they come from. * What Are Stretch Marks and Where Do Stretch Marks Come From? Stretch marks or striae, are a form of scarring on the skin with a silvery white hue. Stretch marks can appear anywhere on the body, along the side of your stomach, the bottom of your belly, the upper portion of your chest, the center of your thighs, and circumference of your posterior. Generally, stretch marks appear in places where larger amounts of fat are stored. Although, stretch marks are associated with people who tend to be over eaters and obese, stretch marks can be the result of a variety of things. Pregnancy, bodybuilding, weight loss, puberty, and intense physical activity can lead to stretch marks. Stretch marks actually develop when an increased level of circulating glucocorticoids enter the bloodstream. This hormone, which is secreted by the adrenal glands, becomes elevated during pregnancy, intense exercise, and puberty, causing stretch marks to appear.

You need several natural oils, butters, scar-healing ingredients, and essential oils to attack these marks. * Moisturise every few hours or as soon as your skin has absorbed the lotion.
I had stretch marks all over my body and no cream ever helped so, I researched how do we get stretch marks and found out that they are basically scars from stretching that hea…led and now all those dead skin cells that connect the tissue are stuck on the top layer and that's why we look like zebras. Only way to loose them is to shed those old dead skin cells which you can do at the spa and will cost you $200 per treatment or you can do it at home cheaply but you need to be disciplined. Creams that come with those abrading crystals that shed dead cells can be very expensive and you don't get enough product to treat stretch marks. After much looking I found this site that sells pure crystals that you mix with your own cream. I was surprised by low price because instead of 1oz cream I could get 1lb of crystals and prepare 2lbs of crystal cream and that's more then enough for the whole body. I received instructions to mix 1 spoon of crystals with 2 spoons of cream or oil (vitamin E, shea butter) and massage this paste in circular motions for couple of minutes. I did this before every other shower for a month and all stretch marks are gone that I had on my boobs, those on my hips and belly faded significantly but will have to continue with treatments for a month or so. Now I can't wait to go to the beach and not be embarrassed by my body. I love to tell people about this treatment because it really works. P.S. Customer service is super nice to explain and suggests what's good for your skin type.
I would suggest you abrade top layer of the skin where stretch marks are located. I've gained a lot of weight during pregnancy and got stretch marks all over my body. No stret…ch mark cream ever helped because stretch marks are like scars there's that dead cell buildup that you can only mechanically remove(exfoliate). I've researched all kinds of methods and settled for microdermabrasion because it's not painful and you can do it yourself at home.The only thing you need to get are abrasive crystals.
They use Lotions that are made to treat stretch marks.... ( COCO BUTTER ) They are found in your local drug store, if you are one try finding a lotion specialized for stretch… marks.
Use Bio Oil,it will really help get rid of them...
There are many creams out there but the best one so far has to be Revitol cream for stretchmarks.We have it there. Check the reviews to.
Revitol Stretch Mark Cream is an all natural organic product made up of vitamin E and aloe vera. Revitol Stretch Mark Cream contains no harmful chemicals or has any bad odours…. I have used this cream two or three times a day throughout my pregnancy and because of the results I would recommend this to any woman pregnant or not. I have also tried many other creams and not even one has come close in comparison for results.
If You Put It On Daily.
Hiya, right well I used exfoliater on my stretch marks, i then put stretch marks cream on them and they went
you can reduce their appearance by not gaining too much weight and with proper preventive measures. You can apply cocoa butter on to the stretch marks.Massage with vitamin E o…il into the stretch marks, especially after shower.Eat foods that are rich in vitamin A, E and C.Eat foods that are rich in zinc, and silica. These are good for skin and help form collagen.Eat foods that contain essential fatty acids. For example, vegetables, vegetable oils and fish oils. This will help make cell walls. There are many different types of stretch mark creams that can improve the texture of the skin and make stretch marks less visible. Many will help to reduce appearance of stretch marks, but certain preparations are meant for use only on newer scars. Using these stretch mark creams on severe stretch marks, or those more than a year old, may not show marked improvement.
Well, lotion works great for me. Just Aveeno works the best.
The cream I heard about is called ElastinX But dont forget it is never permanently removed, not even surgery can do that I was told.
To tell you the truth, there is no quick way to get rid of stretch marks. Conventional treatment with stretch mark creams takes about 8-12 weeks. Sometimes longer. There a…re some treatments with laser therapy and microdermabrasion but they will require several sessions each about a week apart before seeing any results. The only way to get it done quick is through surgery specifically abdominoplasty or "tummy tuck". But this will cost you a lot and time to recover from surgery.
They will fade gradually if you use some cocoa butter, but it takes time, there is no quick fix, some tummy and hip excersises will help as well.
Vitamin E oil has shown to be effective for reduction in stretch marks. However, the sooner it is applied after stretch marks appear, the more effective it is. It tends to wor…k best for stretch marks caused by pregnancy (as opposed to obesity).
