Stretch Marks Info
Stretch marks are a form of scarring on the skin, caused by tearing of the dermis, which may diminish over time, but they will not disappear completely.
They are often the result of stretching of the skin associated with both rapid weight change and growth (like during pregnancy, usually during the last trimester,) and usually on the stomach. The marks can also occur on the breasts, thighs, hips, lower back and buttocks.
Some forms of stretch marks are believed to be influenced by hormonal changes associated with puberty, pregnancy and hormone replacement therapy. Some people who practice intense body building get stretch marks after they retire.
There are natural health remedies that may help in reducing the incidence of stretch marks as well as treating the symptoms. Massaging the affected areas with oils that contain specific ingredients (e.g. sweet almond oil - which works gently, delivers moisturising essential fatty acids that keep skin supple and protected from drying.) Pregnancy is a big job for muscles and skin, here, organic arnica flower extract may help ease tightness. Read more on how natural remedies might help reduce stretch marks after pregnancy or weight loss on our blog.
Antioxidants such as Vitamin E work to protect cells in the body from damage caused by free radicals, which are potentially damaging by-products of energy metabolism. Vitamin E helps to prevent LDL (bad) cholesterol damage from free radicals hereby protecting against cell damage may also be beneficial in treating stretch marks.
I use it with after toner and before moisturizer cream. It locks the moisture and my face remains subtle and smooth the next morning.
Great for shingles rash
I used this after being recommended by someone in a pharmacy and it was great for the relief of shingles pain and helping the rash. Have used it since for all sorts of skin things, minor irritations etc. Great to have on hand.
Divine oil for face
Just love this facial/neck oil. Smells lovely and skin looks and stays hydrated all day.
