What to Do About those Stretch Marks

Stretch marks are scars that appear when the skin is overstretched and the fiber in the middle layer of the skin are broken. They are mainly seen during pregnancy, body-building, extreme weight gain, and sometimes during puberty. They occur in areas such as buttocks, breasts, arms, legs and so on. They can be outright annoying because most times they limit the kind of clothes you can put on. We will all love to wear bikinis, crop tops, sleeveless and so on, but the presence of these annoying marks won’t let us. Let us look at how we can limit the appearance of these marks naturally.

1.  Rub egg white on them:

This sounds disgusting yeah? Well, we just have to do it. The protein in egg white is said to be good for the skin, most especially stretch marks. Rub on the marks three times a day for best results.

2. Use potatoes

The juices in potatoes are rich in vitamins and mineral that help restore skin cells. Cut your potatoes into thick slices and rub on the marks, making sure your slice is juicy. Leave to dry for a while, and then wash off.

7 Ways to Reduce the Appearance of Scars

Scars can be caused by injuries, acne and some other things and most scars just refuse to go and they remain as a constant reminder. We always look for ways to cover them up and sometimes that’s just a fruitless effort but there’s light at the end of tunnel; if you follow these steps you just might be able to reduce their appearance;

Exercise patience: Scars caused by injuries require some time before they can be treated. The body has natural ways of healing scars which includes the production of collagen so we need to allow some time to allow the body’s natural healing process take place before we interfere. It is advisable to wait for few weeks before treating scars.

Use SPF: SPF or Sun protection factor is a measure of the sunscreens ability to prevent ultraviolet rays from damaging the skin. Sun exposure not only damages your skin, but it can also worsen the appearance of scars. Using sunscreen containing SPF 30 helps protect scars from blackening when exposed to sun, naturally, the cells which are responsible for producing pigment in the skin become overactive during the healing process and that’s the reason why scars are dark initially but sun exposure tans the scars and makes it remain dark for a longer period.

Getting Rid of Blackheads

A blackhead, or open comedo, is a wide opening on the skin with a blackened mass of skin debris covering the opening and despite the name, some of them are yellow. Blackheads have prevented some of us from having that flawless skin we have always wanted.

Getting rid of blackheads requires patience and dedication. Basically blackheads are caused by an increase in the hormone level which stimulates the sebaceous glands, which cause oil to form in the glands and excess skin cells to get stuck in the pores and they can also be caused by lack of ex-foliation, use of beauty products that contain occlusive ingredients that is, ingredients that slow down the rate of evaporation of water from the skin and clogs the pores.

Here some easy ways you can use in getting rid of blackheads:

  1. Keep your face clean: Whenever you feel it’s getting oily you should have it washed.
  2. Wash your face with an appropriate cleanser: When purchasing a cleanser look for one that contains glycolic acid, salicylic acid and retinol as they help the skin shed dead cells that can clog the pores and benzoyl peroxide which acts against acne causing bacteria on the skin.
  3. Exfoliate regularly: Exfoliation also helps removes dead cells from the skin hence, prevents blackheads.
  4. Ask your dermatologist: Ask about vitamin supplements for healthy skin. Vitamin A will keep the oil flowing uniformly and won’t clog your pores. Tretinoin and Adapalene are common retinoids for skin treatments.
  5. Use appropriate makeup: Not every makeup is good for all skin types so you should consult your dermatologist about the type of makeup you should be using. Don’t pick on them: If you have blackheads already, you should avoid picking on them as this could lead to scarring.
