One of the most common problems with weight gain or pregnancy is getting stretch marks. That problem isn't tied up strictly to women; men are also in danger to get stretch marks. And if you get them is very hard to get rid of them, especially if they turn white. Stretch marks are gained when the inner part of the skin is torn and as consequence red and purple scars appear on the body. Due to the body's inability to expand that much skin gets damaged. The problem starts when stretch marks turn white, because that's the time when it’s almost impossible to remove them. Here are some advices and remedies on how to try to get rid of stretch marks that are already turned white:
Keep Your Weight Under Control
It would be ideal to keep your weight at a healthy level. Usually the main cause of getting stretch marks is when our weight starts to go up. It's very important for women after giving a birth to exercise and pay attention to their diet or stretch marks will be permanent. Same goes for men who gained weight, so excess weight has to be reduced, either through balanced diet or exercise.
Massage Your Skin Daily
Massage improves blood circulation so if you massage your damaged skin regularly, it is more likely to repair itself. You see, if you massage skin affected by stretch marks with the right kind of pressure, skin itself will replace injured cells and heal. This method is proven right and will cost you nothing.
Quick, but not a healthy way to cover up, stretch marks is tanning in the salon. As the body gets tanned from the sun, so do stretch marks. The healthiest way is sun tanning, sure it takes more time, but it is healthier then salon tanning. You can always use tanning product, it can be done at home and it's pretty quick, it lasts less, though. Just, before you go to the beach or salon don’t forget about sunscreen protector.
It Is Good To Exfoliate Your Skin
Exfoliation is good because the old skin gets replaced with new and in that way skin damaged with stretch marks healed. You will need some exfoliating oil such as tea tree oil, and abrasive brush or a smooth sponge since you need an applicator for exfoliation. Skin will soon be replaced with new and white stretch marks will disappear. Healthy and shiny skin will take a place on your belly, thighs or your back.
