How to reduce the appearance of stretch marks
Stretch marks, known as the “stretching” of the skin are caused by hormonal changes, weight changes, genes, and pregnancy. It is more prevalent in women than men, and it can occur during any stage of life. Although today’s society embraces stretch marks and other natural “flaws”, below are a few ways to minimize their appearance and boost your confidence with help from Bellabaci Cupping Therapy.
5 Hidden Causes and Tips to Reduce stretch marks
Firm up: Cellulite and stretch marks belong in the same family. However, there’s a quick fix. Regular Yoga helps to get rid of toxins from your body that cause acidity build-up and create an unsightly “orange peel” effect on the skin. Pilates helps strengthen your muscles around your thighs, buttocks and stomach areas.
Tip: Add four Pilates poses to your evening ritual.
Stress Less: Stress can weaken the elastic fibers in the skin. Stressed, dehydrated or even itchy skin is far more prone to developing scarring and stretch marks over time then well-nourished skin.
Tip: Massage the Bellabaci STRESS NO MORE wellness oil onto your body when you wake up in the morning and start the day calm and revitalized.
Hydrate more: Keeping your skin hydrated and well-moistened increases the skin’s elasticity and can treat the symptoms of existing stretch marks. It’s important to drink 250ml’s of water in the morning, night and before every meal to keep your skin hydrated and your appetite at bay.
Wear your SPF: Tanning can make stretch marks look prominent. We’ve all heard the myth that tanning the skin can hide away unsightly scarring, but in contrast, it can make stretch marks more visible.
Tip: Pile on the SPF.
