Gaining weight can put a lot of strain on a person, both mentally and physically. Losing those extra pounds can do amazing things for one's self-esteem, but all too often, stretch marks are a leftover reminder of that additional weight. It's tough to feel comfortable in your own skin if it's decorated with stretch marks and signs of your former self.
Rest assured, there are measures you can take to help those skin scars fade away so you can be proud of your weight loss when you look in the mirror.
Stretch marks often occur when the skin is stretched more rapidly than it can repair the cells needed to cover the additional area. When you gain weight, you may see stretch marks around your hips, thighs, belly, and arms, as these areas of the body are often the quickest to store fat. This, in turn, causes the skin to lose elasticity, as it's stretched around the increased size of these body parts. Unfortunately, you can eat right and hit the gym to eliminate those unwanted pounds, but stretch marks tend to linger. Fortunately for you, today's beauty sciences do offer a solution.
Add Collagen Boosting Ingredients to Your Daily Regimen
One of the main reasons your body incurs stretch marks is because the skin doesn't have enough elasticity to stay strong while it's being pulled and relaxing again. Collagen is a major contributor to your body's elastin production, allowing it to bend, stretch, and relax easily. Without proper collagen levels, your skin will begin to show signs of exhaustion, allowing such things as stretch marks.
To combat the unwanted intrusion of stretch marks, align yourself with the right products. Look for ingredients that are known to boost collagen production and promote healthy skin, such as hyaluronic acid, vitamins A, C, E, and K, and peptides.
Embrace Silicone Fusion Technology
A high-quality Silicone Fusion™ Treatment can help reduce the obvious markings left by weight gain and loss. The process simply requires you to place a medical grade silicone pad on the area where you've incurred stretch marks. These pads should be worn from one to nine hours, and because they rest comfortably against the skin, they can be worn while you sleep or under your clothes as you work.
If you're considering Silicone Fusion Treatment, be sure to look into Dermaclara's Silicone Fusion™. Made with medical grade silicone, each piece of Silicone Fusion™ creates a micro-climate, which allows optimal hydration and moisture to find its way to the skin's delicate cells. Because each pad gently pulls the skin back into place, it's perfect for people who are trying to alleviate stretch marks, as the gentle adhesive does much of the work, guiding the skin back into a naturally plump and poised position.
