Ahhh stretch marks. Almost everyone experiences them at some point - many spend countless hours agonizing over them, and attempting various treatments to remove them. Pregnancy, weight fluctuation, medication, disease, and a number of other factors can cause the universally pesky stretch mark.
Stretch marks happen. Luckily, there is a way to naturally reduce the appearance of stretch marks without cosmetic surgery or expensive treatments. Let's explore those, but first ...
What Is a Stretch Mark?
As we mentioned, stretch marks are caused by a number of both natural and circumstantial factors. The actual marking, is your skin reacting to a quick change in weight or growth. As the skin stretches, the stretch marks appear due to extensive pulling of the skin, causing the middle layer to tear and the deeper layer to appear through. This leaves behind a scar like appearance, or a stretch mark.
Getting Rid of Stretch Marks
One of the easiest, and least invasive, ways to reduce the appearance of a stretch mark is through exfoliation. Exfoliating every other day, helps the skin stay healthy, and gently removes excess dead cell build up. This helps the skin turn over more efficiently, allowing the new and healthy skin to shine through.
When dealing with stretch marks, exfoliating is even more important, as cell turnover is key to reducing the appearance of the marks. When you use an all natural organic coconut coffee scrub to exfoliate, the gentle and natural mix soothes and nourishes the skin while stimulating it. Not only is the skin scrubbed free of dead skin cells, the coffee helps bring blood to the surface of the skin, aiding in circulation and reducing the appearance of the stretch marks.
Use an organic body scrub with high quality ingredients and nourishing oils to ensure your skin is gently and effectively exfoliated. Scrub every other day for two weeks, leaving the coffee scrub on your skin for 5 minutes or so each time. Over time, the stretch marks should diminish, leaving you feeling buffed and beautiful.
