Aloe Vera and Stretch Marks

Stretch marks occur in the middle layer of our skin called the dermis. The dermis is the skin’s elastic layer, allowing our skin to stretch and snap back into shape.

When this layer is continuously stretched over a long period of time, the collagen is damaged reducing the skins elasticity. The result is the scars we call stretch marks.

Pregnancy, rapid weight gain or loss and puberty, are the usual causes of stretch marks. Almost half of all expectant women and many teenagers will acquire stretch marks.

Usually stretch marks are red in colour and might appear inflamed if they are new. However, with time they tend to fade and become white, pretty close to your natural skin tone. Obviously, the best thing to do is avoid stretch marks in the first place. But, if you do get a few, your chances of getting rid of them diminish with time. So, if you get a stretch mark, act fast!

One of the best ways to take care of stretch marks is by using the magical properties of Aloe Vera. It is effective and gives quick results too.

Aloe Vera is full of skin benefits and is known as a wound healer across the globe. It contains mostly water, but one will also find a wide variety of nutrients that are good for our skin. It can surely help in the sustenance of the skin tissues and restore them to good health.
