What is stretch marks and how does it occur?
Stretch marks (medical name stria, striae or strea gravidarum) are caused by tearing of the dermis. This often happens due to stretching of the skin when we gain weight rapidly. These marks form narrow streaks or lines that occur in the surface of the skin, appear to be red or purple to start with and gradually fade to a silvery- white color.
They appear on the stomach, thighs, breast, hips, upper arms & lower back. Anyone can get stretch marks as it is associated with puberty, pregnancy, bodybuilding, or hormone replacement therapy.
So how do we prevent it from happening to our skin with natural ingredients?
Tangerine and sage oil has been proved to help prevent stretch marks in the body. Regular use of this combination helps restore damaged tissues in the body. It helps reduce the appearance of scars and stretch marks. Tangerine oil is known for its antifungal, antiseptic, antispasmodic, toning, purifying and cytophylactic benefits.
Sage oil comes from an evergreen perennial plant. It is cicatrisant, which means that it has the ability to heal scars and fade stretch marks and promotes faster healing of wounds too. Khadi Premium Cosmetics has crafted a unique blend using these two main ingredients in a Stretch Mark cream to help prevent the damage of tissue and help you maintain smooth and scar-free skin.
