Take care of Stretch Marks and Scars with a good Skin Care Cream
Good-looking skin isn't always healthy, but healthy skin always looks good. This is why skin care is so important, especially when trying to deal with scars and stretch marks.
Scars and stretch marks can affect both young and old. Of course, a few factors such as gender and the extent of the damage will determine the extent of scar tissue. Nevertheless, treatment for scars and stretch marks is pretty much the same for all people.
I dare you to find someone that is absolutely scar-free. Scarring is the result of the body's natural process that helps heal wounds. Small wounds will generally heal without leaving scar tissue, but more extensive wounds can leave permanent scars.
Scar removal methods include laser treatment, resurfacing techniques and surgery, however, a scar removal treatment can also be achieved by using a skin care cream that targets scar tissue. This type of treatment is best used on facial scars.
When choosing a scar cream, you should make sure that it contains the right ingredients. Ingredients such as Vitamin C and Vitamin A are both essential to healthy skin and scar repair.
Other ingredients such as essential fatty acids (omega-3 and omega-6) help promote the production of new, healthy cells that replace scar tissue. You can either apply these fatty acids directly to the wound or incorporate them as part of your diet.
Snail serum has also shown great results as a scar removal ingredient. It contains copper peptides, which can boost skin renewal by prompting new capillary formation and triggering the creation of collagen, elastin, and glycosaminoglycans.
Stretch Marks Creams
Stretch marks are the result of skin that has been stretched passed its limits. Extreme weight gain or weight loss, pregnancy, and growth spurts are the most common causes of stretched skin. As for stretch marks treatments there are several options including surgery.
The most common problem with surgery is that it is only applicable to people with loose skin, meaning that those that have stretch marks but no loose skin should look for another alternative. Stretch mark creams that contain rose hip oil are the best option for people with stretch marks. This ingredient is made up of a combination of different elements that make it perfect for stretch mark and scar treatment.
Rose hip seed oil is a traditional ingredient used for centuries by indigenous tribes in the south of Chile. This ingredient contains high levels of Vitamin A and Vitamin C, as well as essential fatty acids. Retinoic acid is an ingredient derived from Vitamin A. This ingredient helps increase the rate of cell turnover and replace epithelial cells. Vitamin C, on the other hand, encourages the production of collagen and elastin helping improve the appearance of scars.
Essential fatty acids are basic factors in the regeneration and reparation of healthy skin membranes. This also means that rose hip oil can be used for the treatment for scars.
BERRYSISTIBLE Stretch Mark Cream is ideal for stretch marks and scars treatment. It is gentle enough to be used with facial acne scars. STRETCH MARK CREAM can even help prevent the unsightly appearance of stretch marks, however, make sure that you are using it before, during and after pregnancy.
