Why Do I Have Stretch Marks?
Stretch marks can appear anytime the skin is stretched due to rapid growth or expansion. It’s very common with pregnancy. As the deeper layer of the skin called the dermis tears due to stretching, it creates a visible scar. Stretch marks are often pink or red when they first appear but may change color over time. Good skin care may help reduce the severity of stretch marks by enhancing the skin's natural elasticity.
When your skin has good elasticity, it has a greater ability to stretch and bounce back to its normal shape. Natural body lotions
with ingredients like shea butter, essential oils, and other natural oils like olive oil hydrate and help maximize the skin's natural moisture balance and ability to recover.
Skin Protective Ingredients
Some natural body lotions for stretch marks are enriched with other natural botanicals and essential fatty acids that can help support skin health and protect skin against environmental damage that can compromise its elasticity. There is a wide range of products made with natural ingredients, many of which are labeled cruelty-free for those concerned about animal welfare.
You'll discover options that are free of many controversial ingredients and formulated without synthetic dyes or preservatives. Each lotion is made to apply to all areas of your body prone to stretch marks - belly, buttocks, breasts, thighs, and more.
Many products are formulated with ingredients that are generally considered safe for pregnant women.
