They start out red, then turn pink with age before finally settling into a pasty white that you just know you're going to be stuck looking at for the rest of your days. According to Allure Magazine, over 90 percent of women get stretch marks during their lifetime, yet nothing banishes a great bikini to the bottom of a closet like the sight of them on our midsections or thighs. So how can you stop those pesky ripples from breaking through your skin?
First of all, stretch marks don't just happen overnight. When you go through a period of rapid weight change skin can lose its suppleness, reports Cosmopolitan Magazine. The marks represent breakage that occurs as your flesh tries to accommodate for the quick change in size.
While it can be virtually impossible to remove stretch marks without laser treatments, a moisturizing product like Elemis Spa At Home Japanese Camellia Oil Blend can prevent skin from reaching the critical levels of thinness stretch marks need in order to strike. Made with nourishing sweet almond and camellia oils, the blend can revive skin cells and also help improve elasticity.
In 2011, Cosmopolitan reported that Victoria "Posh Spice" Beckham took to Twitter and professed her love of the Elemis product, exclaiming - “Pregnancy tip!!!! I have used this through every pregnancy, it’s amazing!! X VB.”
