What Makes a Good Stretch Mark Oil?

Stretch marks can happen to everyone and anyone, but are most often a side-effect of quick weight gain – such as that experienced in pregnancy. A stretch mark, by definition, is therefore a type of scar that develops when our skin stretches or shrinks quickly, such as through the natural growth experienced throughout pregnancy. The abrupt change causes the collagen and elastin, which support our skin, to rupture. As the skin heals, stretch marks may appear.

How can one prevent stretch marks?

Stretch marks are influenced by a multitude of factors, including genetics, physical activity and nutrition, all of which affect the skin’s elasticity. While not all stretch marks can be prevented, their severity can be minimized through the use of proper skin care.

Some studies have even shown that anti-inflammatory and antioxidant plant oils can keep skin hydrated and promote wound healing and skin barrier repair. Thus, advancing your body care routine with plant oils may help reduce the appearance of stretch marks by improving the skin’s overall health and tone.

So, what makes a good stretch mark oil?

As mentioned above, a good stretch mark oil is anti-inflammatory and contains antioxidants. An excellent stretch mark oil is also enhanced with ultra-hydrating ingredients that deliver long-lasting moisture and improve the skin’s elastin production. In addition, choosing a formula with Vitamin E can help reveal smoother, firmer, tighter-looking skin.
