10 Ways You Can Prevent Stretch Marks 

They say prevention is better than cure. That couldn’t be more true with stretch marks. Getting rid of them completely is next to impossible. The best way to get rid of stretch marks is to not get them in the first place. Here are 10 ways you can prevent stretch marks from appearing on your skin.

We recommend any of these awesome products to help with dealing with Stretch Marks.  

1. Control Your Weight, Exercise Regularly 

Stretch marks appear when the skin is stretched beyond its limits and when the body undergoes rapid changes. You can watch your weight by watching your diet – eating junks, sodas, and sugary foods just won’t cut it! – or by exercising regularly. Exercises have numerous benefits to our body. Apart from helping shed excess weight, people who exercise regularly are known to have healthier hearts than those who don’t exercise at all.
 

2. Consume Nutrient-rich diet

Let your diet be rich in all the nutrients your body needs to grow – that is, vitamin C, vitamin D, vitamin E, Zinc, Protein. Lack of needed nutrients can cause stretch marks to appear. Be sure to eat foods that improve your skin’s health. To get food rich in these nutrients, your best bet would be to eat unprocessed foods. 

3. Drink a Lot of Water

When you drink a lot of water, you skin is hydrated. A hydrated skin equals a soft skin, and soft skins are less likely to develop stretch marks. The recommended quantity of water is at least 8 cups per day. Caffeinated drinks improve the risk of getting stretch marks, so you might want to steer clear of them. If you can’t, balance up with more water and herbal tea. 

4. Take a Lot of Vitamin C

Vitamin C is crucial to the production and development of collagen, the protein responsible for your skin’s elasticity, in the body. The more elastic your skin is, the less likely you have stretch marks. You can either take them as tablets or through fruits like oranges, lemons, and through vegetables.

5. Vitamin D

Low levels of vitamin D in the body can trigger the appearance of stretch marks. Exposure to the sun is the quickest and easiest way to get vitamin D. It is also present in bread, cereal, and dairy products.

6. Take Meals rich in Zinc

Zinc is known to have amazing healing properties. Meals rich in zinc, when taken, help reduce skin inflammation and improve its healing process. Nuts and fish are rich in zinc. 

7. Attack Stretch Marks as they appear

It is possible that, despite your best efforts, you are still unable to prevent the stretch marks. Visit a dermatologist; he will help you determine the cause and suggest treatments that will help. 

8. Hyaluronic acid

Hyaluronic acid can be used to stimulate collagen production. You can get it either by directly applying its extract on skin, or by taking it as capsule. 

9. Stretch Mark Creams

Carefully massaging stretch mark creams into your skin can help prevent stretch marks. You can try out our Palmers Cocoa Butter Skin Therapy Oil.

10. Use Moisturizers

Moisturizers have a way of softening up the skin. Soft skins are less prone to stretch marks. We recommend Jergens Nourishing Honey Moisturizer.
