Dealing with Stretch Marks

Stretch marks are a form of scarring that appears when the skin has been stretched beyond its capacity and the dermis has consequently been torn. They commonly occur after either dramatic weight gain, weight loss or from pregnancy.

What Do They Look Like?

Stretch marks tend to appear as long and thin reddish-purple marks to start with, before gradually fading to a silvery-white colour. They usually affect areas where fat is stored but can occur anywhere where
the skin is stretched.

The most common areas you can find stretch marks are:

  • tummy (abdomen)
  • breasts
  • upper arms
  • buttocks
  • thighs
  • shoulders (usually in bodybuilders)

How Can You Treat Stretch Marks?

The best way to treat these imperfections is to exfoliate and hydrate the skin. By using a good resurfacing exfoliator in your daily routine and combining it with a nourishing repair serum, you can dramatically improve the appearance of stretch marks.

Future Hair & Beauty have a range of products available to treat stretch marks. Ask a member of their staff for more details.
