Natural Skin Care and Successful Prevention of Stretch Marks
By Martha Fitzharris
Successful Prevention of Stretch Marks
Prevention of stretch marks is important to teenagers in the awkward years of puberty, body builders who are packing on muscle at a quick rate and women who are expecting babies. In short, anyone who is growing quickly is more likely to develope stretch marks. The stretching of the belly during pregnancy just happens to be the best example of the skins ability to stretch.
The use of an anti-stretch mark creams is the best method for the prevention of stretch marks. Successful prevention depends on the intensity of the cream. Mere moisturizers, like cocoa butter, offer minimum protection against stretch marks, also known as striae. Creams that contain trace amounts of collagen and elastin or that are packed with them do no more than temporarily attract moisture to the skin and can not be more effective than cocoa butter creams in preventing striae. The creams that are effective in the prevention and repair of stretch marks are those that contain biological substances that signal your body to reproduce collagen and elastin at a quick pace and to dissolve damaged skin cells.
Why are elastin and collagen creams no more effective than mere moisturizing creams? Collagen and elastin are proteins which occur naturally in the skin. Collagen is, in fact, the building block of our skin. It gives skin the ability to bind. Elastin is another very important protein found in our skin, which gives it its elasticity. Both must be built from within your body, and not merely "added" to your skin. Adding bovine collagen or elastin levels to your body from the outside, do no more than temporarily attract moisture to your skin as any protein binds to water in a proportion of about four times its weight. Mere water within the skin does not prepare the skin to avoid tearing when over-stretched
Striae is caused when the skin is pushed beyond its ability to stretch, which causes tearing. These tears are replaced with rippled, discolored scar tissue. If you can prevent the tears from happening by giving the skin a greater ability to stretch, you won't get stretch marks. Rubbing on a cream loaded with biological activators that signal your body to reproduce collagen and elastin quickly is the easiest and best way to give the skin it's elasticity.
Successful Prevention of Skin Damage with Biological Activators
There are three types of biological activators: (1) enzymes that catalyze or speed up biochemical reactions within skin cells and digest or dissolve damaged or worn out cells, (2) growth factor proteins which enable cells to communicate and effectively coordinate activities between one another for orderly cell reproduction or division, and (3) glycosaminoglycans (GAGs), which are complex carbohydrate chains that provide binding, hydrating and swelling pressure to tissues enabling them to withstand pressure and successfully prevent tearing and scarring in the deep layers of the skin during pregnancy, growth spurts during adolescence, overstretching due to body building or over stretching by more than average weight gain.
With the use of BIO SKIN CARE™ Cream damaged cells and toxins are dissolved, hair follicles are cleaned of debris, germs are destroyed, new collagen, elasting and water holding cells are formed. The Final Result: YOUR SKIN CLEAR OF STRETCH MARKS.
