Let’s be real: stretch marks are very common. It is reported that 50 to 90 percent of people will experience stretch marks in their lifetime, commonly during puberty, pregnancy or from gaining weight. For some people, they go totally unnoticed. But for others, they are a source of embarrassment or insecurity, so how can I minimise the appearance of stretch marks?
Firstly, it is important to note that stretch marks are normal. They can be found anywhere on the body but are typically found on the breasts, butt, thighs and across the stomach. Some people are more at risk of developing stretch marks, including pregnant women, bodybuilders and overweight people. They appear when the skin rapidly stretches (could you have guessed?) and the collagen in your skin is disrupted. They can present as faint white lines or as thick red scarring, indicating how long they have been on the skin and the extent to which the collagen was disrupted.
For some people, the stretch marks may not bother them because they are in a hidden position like the inner thigh, or they just don’t care. But for some, stretch marks are noticeable and a point of insecurity or discomfort. But don’t worry, there are steps you can take to improve how they look and feel.
The way to improve the appearance of stretch marks is to use a product that can go deep into the dermal layer of the skin and stimulate the repair of deep scar tissue. The Beauty of Action’s Skincerity Nightly Breathable Masque helps to deeply hydrate the skin, allowing vital oxygen molecules to penetrate the skin’s barrier to address the healing of the scar tissue. It contains key ingredients like vitamin E and grape seed oil that have been shown in research to aid the healing of skin scarring.
A study by the University of Texas used Skincerity for 90 days and found that it dramatically improved their skin tone and texture. So if you want your stretch marks to be less noticeable, start using this daily.
The other product to improve the appearance of stretch marks is the Nucerity Rejuvenating Barrier. It is an oil-free skin protection barrier that hydrates the skin and improves the texture of the stretch mark scarring. You apply it directly onto the stretch marks on your skin and it creates a smooth finish over the skin to even out the areas with raised scarring, to leave you feeling more confident.
The product contains key ingredients that are known for their remarkable benefits for the skin. These include lutein, to help protect your skin; trehalose, to hydrate your skin; and sodium hyaluronate, a unique substance that holds 1,000 times its weight in water to deepen the absorption of the other ingredients, leaving your skin looking supple and glowing.
Stretch marks don’t need to leave you feeling down, they are a completely normal part of life and are nothing to be ashamed about. But if you are feeling insecure, Beauty of Action have products that will transform your confidence by reducing the look and feel of your stretch marks effectively, to leave you feeling great.
