Shea Butter and Stretch Marks
Stretch Marks are a form of scarring that can occur when a person’s skin is overstretched. Pregnancy and obesity are the two main causes of stretch marks.
There are a few ways to rid yourself of stretch marks if you suffer from them.
In Microdermabrasion the surface layer of the skin is removed by using a special wand with a roughened surface that lightly sands the skin. The shed skin particles are removed via a suction device attached to the wand. There are a few options of microderm that actually use natural and organic ingredients to remove the surface layer of the skin.
In Dermabrasion the surface of the skin is literally removed by a process of sanding. The aim of dermabrasion is to remove the appearance of scars, damage from the sun or dark spots. This is a serious medical procedure that takes place under a general anesthetic, is very painful and can take several months to heal.
3. SHEA BUTTER
Mother Nature’s most potent healing emollient is high in Vitamin A and Vitamin E to diminish and prevent stretch marks. And using an Unrefined Certified Organic is especially safe and effective.
Please remember that the correct diet, nutritional supplements, rest, avoiding excessive sun exposure, can have a big impact on the skin’s ability to heal an look beautiful.
