Most people have some type of stretch marks. It’s a part of life and it may be caused by quick weight changes, hitting puberty, extreme body building or pregnancy. The skin being stretched and tugged over a long period of time causes stretch marks to develop all over the body. The most common areas where a stretch mark may appear are thighs, bellies, hips and buttocks.
Although there’s no sure way to eliminate them altogether, nourishing and moisturizing skin can be helpful in preventing future stretch marks from developing. As you may know, genes are a deciding factor whether or not stretch marks may occur. Look at direct family members and you’ll see.. or not.
One way to help prevent stretch marks would be to use argan oil on a regular basis. It’s an all natural quick absorbing oil, which blends well into all types of skin. It may be a simple solution as a great moisturizer for overstressed skin that’s constantly being pulled in all directions. In a recent study, September 2016, the use of Argan revealed a positive effect on skin elasticity, suggesting helpful in the prevention or early treatment of stretch marks; great news and a motivator for further dermatological studies.
After all, it’s all about being comfortable in your own skin!
