5 Tips for Getting Rid of Stretch Marks Naturally
Give your skin the power to heal and restore itself. By nourishing your cells from the inside out, and practicing the lifestyle habits that will optimize your body’s ability to access the vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, amino acids, and essential fatty acids that it needs to heal, you are on your way to getting rid of stretch marks. Empower your body with these revitalizing tips for improving the appearance and health of your skin.
Eat More Skin Repairing Foods
In order for your skin to heal and to help reduce stretch marks and scarring, you need to supply your body with plenty of the important nutrients for skin healing. These include vitamin C to boost collagen production, vitamin A, which is necessary for skin repair, and the healing, anti-inflammatory nutrient vitamin E.
So where do you find these vitamins? A diet that is rich in fresh fruits and veggies, with plenty of green leafy vegetables, squashes, peppers, tomatoes, berries, and melons will help to speed the healing process. Foods like avocados, coconut, nuts, and seeds, are high in these vitamins, as well as the essential fatty acids and amino acids that your cells need to replenish and rebuild. All of these foods are high in cell-protecting, anti-aging antioxidants, so you get more skin nourishing power with each healthy salad, green smoothie, and bowl of yogurt topped with chopped nuts and berries that you enjoy.
Supplement this dietary regime with Moringa Oil Base, a stretch mark cream which provides vitamins A, C and E through skin absorption, covering all of the bases.
Protect from the Sun's Damaging Rays
The sun’s rays will damage your skin and makes healing difficult. This will make your stretch marks worse. Be sure to protect your skin from UV radiation with a broad-spectrum sunscreen when you go outside, and by staying in the shade wherever possible.
Keep Your Skin Well Moisturized
Every time you step out of the shower or bath, treat your skin to a rich, protective moisturizer like Mummy’s Miracle Stretch Mark Oil. Formulated with a perfect blend of nourishing natural oils that are easily absorbed into the skin, including virgin moringa oil, certified organic tamanu seed, and ginger oil, this natural skin oil improves skin’s elasticity and encourages healing.
It is perfect not only for helping to get rid of existing stretch marks, scarring, and fine lines, but also for preventing the onset of further stretch marks in the future. Simply rub on the belly, chest, and thighs throughout pregnancy to keep skin wonderfully soft and smooth as it stretches during those transformative childbearing months!
Hydrate from the Inside
To care for your skin, it is just as important to hydrate from the inside as it is from the outside to prevent dryness, slow the aging process, and ensure that your skin is supple and smooth. Drink plenty of water, fresh juices and hydrating herbal teas. While fresh juices are great, especially veggie-based drinks, be wary of too much fruit juice, which is high in sugar. Too much sugar in your diet is actually believed to speed skin aging and could inhibit the healing process.
Exfoliate Your Skin
When you exfoliate, you stimulate blood flow to the skin. This improved circulation helps to bring more nutrient and oxygen-rich blood to your skin’s cells to help nourish and support renewal. Exfoliating also encourages cell renewal by sloughing away dead skin cells.
Use a loofah or body scrub to exfoliate your skin before you shower or bathe. Then, be sure to follow with a rich moisturizing treatment like Mummy’s Miracle Stretch Mark Oil for the ultimate in skin softening, anti-stretch mark home care!
