Stretch marks are a normal part for most girls and guys. When a person grows or gains weight really quickly (like during puberty), that person may get fine lines on the body called stretch marks.
Stretch marks happen when the skin is pulled by rapid growth or stretching. Although the skin is usually fairly elastic, when it’s overstretched, the normal production of collagen (the major protein that makes up the connective tissue in your skin) is disrupted. As a result, scars called stretch marks may form.
If you’re noticing them on your body, you’re not alone. Most girls and women have them, they are the pink, red or purple lines that appear most often on their breasts, thighs, hips, and butt. After a while, they change color and become whitish, pearly or greyish. Many women get them during pregnancy. Stretch marks are more common in girls, but guys can get them, too.
Bodybuilders are prone to getting stretch marks because of the rapid body changes that can go with bodybuilding. People who use steroid-containing skin creams or ointments (such as hydrocortisone) for more than a few weeks may also get stretch marks.
Stretch marks can make you feel self-conscious and uncomfortable about your appearance. This is the best remedy for stretch marks:
– 1 egg yolk
– 2 tablespoons St. John’s oil
– 1 tablespoon burdock oil
– 5 drops of lemon juice
– 5 drops of tincture of calendula
Whisk the egg yolk, and with constant whipping / mixing add first St. John’s Wort, and burdock oil, and finally the lemon juice and tincture of calendula.
Well combine all ingredients, and with broad brush applied to the skin on the stretch marks affected places, leave to dry for 30 minutes and take a shower with warm water. After showering put the thin layer of cream for skin regeneration or some nutritious body milk.
