|In truth, more than 75% of all pregnant women develop striae gravidarum or stretch marks during pregnancy. Changes take place during pregnancy that affect the whole body, including the skin.|
|Stretch marks are a stubborn problem. Depending on the skin color, the marks start out as pink, reddish brown or dark brown streaks. The reddish-brown pigmentation in the marks gradually fades, and the stretch marks begin to look like glistening silvery lines of scar tissue.|
Prevention is better than cure. The sooner pregnant women work to prevent marks from occurring, the better their chances of not getting them. The best remedy to minimize stretch marks and dry and itchy skin is to keep the skin moist and supple.
|How do stretch marks occur?|
There are three layers of skin: the epidermis (outer layer), the dermis (middle layer); and the subcutaneous stratum (deepest layer). Stretch marks occur in the dermis. When the dermis is constantly over-stretched, the skin becomes less elastic and the connective fibers break, resulting in the appearance of stretch marks which may become permanent with time.
With the right skincare and active ingredients applied during and after pregnancy can help prevent and repair stretch marks to bring the skin back to its normal smooth appearance.
