How Does A Stretch Mark Cream Work To Get Rid Of Stretch Marks From The Skin?

Stretch marks are a tear in the dermis due to too sudden and too rapid stretching of the skin. They are initially red or purple in color and change in appearance over time to become white.  

In most women, stretch marks appear in adolescence or pregnancy due to hormonal disruption and significant and rapid weight gain. They usually affect the chest, stomach, buttocks, thighs, or hips. 

Stretch marks are not inevitable, however, once they appear, they are challenging to remove. The anti-stretch mark creams formulated from natural ingredients help to the protect your skin and fade unsightly marks that could arise during your pregnancy. 

How to choose a suitable anti-stretch mark cream? 

Different criteria come into play in choosing an excellent stretch marks cream. Here are some tips to make sure you choose an effective and good quality avrupa yakası escort product. 

The composition 

This is probably the most crucial criterion, mainly if a pregnant or breastfeeding woman uses the stretch mark cream. To choose a suitable cream, you should look for the following: 

  • Natural care: This is a good sign if natural active ingredients appear at the beginning of the list of ingredients (often under their Latin name). Certain natural ingredients are particularly effective on stretch marks, such as raw vegetable oils, vegetable butter, Aloe Vera. Conventional cosmetics mainly use water (excipient representing 60 to 90% of the treatment) and synthetic active ingredients. Also, it may be interesting to go for natural or organic cosmetics for a large dosage of natural active ingredients. 
  • Allergens: they take different forms  –  chemical (perfumes, preservatives, emulsifiers) or natural (propolis, pigments, essential oils, resins, oils from nuts). Therefore, it is necessary to test the cream on a small skin area before applying it more generously to the body. 
  • Unnecessary ingredients: dyes, texture agents, and perfumes are all ingredients that do not provide anything in terms of care. You might as well avoid products that are loaded with them. 

The price, a non-criterion 

A high price is not synonymous with greater efficiency. The cost of a cosmetic is a function of the composition and the marketing surrounding the promotion of the product. Also, some inexpensive effects can be particularly beneficial to the skin. This is the case with certain natural vegetable oils. However, avoid going for a low-end product: poor-quality ingredients are unnecessary and sometimes harmful to the skin.  

The Texture 

More than a quality criterion, the texture of a stretch marks removal cream is, above all, a matter of taste. Some users prefer thick, balm-like surfaces, while others like creamy textures or lotions, which are more fluid. The application and the finish on the skin are different. Also, do not hesitate to inquire before purchasing your anti-stretch mark treatment, even if it means testing in a drugstore or store. 

User Reviews 

If you doubt the effectiveness of an anti-stretch mark cream, it may be worthwhile to refer to user reviews. They are accessible on manufacturers’ websites or resellers in the specialized press (for example, the women’s press or magazines dedicated to consumers). In addition, it is sometimes possible to find reviews on anti-stretch mark products (video, blog). They can be reliable sources of information for an informed choice. 

How effective are stretch mark creams? 

Once again, the effectiveness of a stretch marks cream will be strongly determined by the product’s composition.  

A cream essentially composed of water and adjuvants cannot have the same impact on the skin as a cream formulated with natural ingredients, recognized for their nourishing, regenerating, and protective properties. Also, prefer creams made from natural vegetable oils and vegetable butter. But the effectiveness will also lie in the diligence of the application. If the stretch mark cream is used once  “in passing,” it is unlikely that it will produce any positive effects on the quality of the skin. Anti-stretch mark treatments require a daily application to all affected areas (neckline, stomach, buttocks, and thighs).  

Some tips for use 

  • To care for your skin properly, always refer to the advice given by the manufacturer. 
  • Beforehand, test your stretch marks removal cream on a small portion of the skin (for example, the crease of the elbow) to avoid any risk of allergic reaction. Today, most cosmetics are hypoallergenic, but prevention is better than cure! 
  • If you know you are allergic to one of the treatment components, avoid applying it to your stretch marks. 
  • Some ingredients are not recommended for pregnant and breastfeeding women: essential oils, preservatives, and adjuvants – which act as toxicants or endocrine disruptors that can interfere with the baby’s development. Among them: paraben, phthalates, ethanolamine, BHA and BHT, retinol, PEG, sulfates, oxybenzone, triclosan, hydroquinone, phenoxyethanol. 
  • To get the maximum benefit from your anti-stretch mark cream, the application should be done daily. 
  • A massage can accompany the application of your cream to accelerate the penetration of the product and stimulate the skin and the microcirculation.  
  • In general, the application of an anti-stretch mark treatment is done on clean, dry skin. 
  • Avoid using your anti-stretch mark treatment on mucous membranes and purulent wounds and lesions.
