Natural Care of Stretch Marks

Studies show that there are many plant-derived compounds that affect cell proliferation and stimulate cell growth.

Natural plants, herbs and oil, such as Argan Oil, have long been used for their beneficial effects on skin health.

Studies show that some natural oils have powerful antioxidant effects. They increase cell signalling, the process by which the body communicates with cells.[2] [3]

This is why many drugs and an ever-growing number of cosmetic products use natural plants and extracts in their formulations – because they work.

Of all these oils are the most convenient way to apply a natural lotion for stretch marks.


What are Stretch Marks?

Stretch marks are lines that appear on the skin after a periods of rapid stretching of the skin.

Stretch marks can occur during:

  1. Pregnancy
  2. Body Building
  3. Rapid weight gain
  4. Puberty
  5. Genetic Predisposition
  6. Some Health problems such as Cushing’s or Marfan syndrome
  7. Excessive use of corticosteroids

The middle dermis layer of your skin is made up of strong, inter-connected fibres.
These fibres allow the skin to expand and contract.

Stretch marks are caused by the rapid stretching of the middle layer of the skin.
This can cause the skin to break or tear which allows deeper skin layers to show through.

So, if we can stop stretch marks forming we may avoid the very difficult problem of removing them.


Argan Oil – Best Oil for Stretch Marks?

Argan Oil is one of the safest and most effective natural oils for treating stretch marks during pregnanacy.

To try to prevent stretch marks forming we need to improve skin elasticity, reduce inflammation and prevent dryness. Improving skin elasticity allows the skin to stretch without tearing.

A pure Argan Oil contains many nutrients that improve your skin texture including:

  1. Tocopherols( Vitamin E ) Anti-oxidants to promote cell growth
  2. Essential Fatty Acids Omega 3 and Omega 6 to keep skin pliable & reduce inflammation
  3. Triterpenoids Tirucallol for cicatrisation ( the process of healing wounds )
  4. Beta amyrine: Skin protection
  5. Butyrospermol Anti inflammatory
  6. Lupeol: Antiseptic

Collagen is an important component of skin elasticity. Collagen production can be increased by treatment with a combination of Argan Oil and vitamin C.[4]

Even if you haven’t started to see stretch marks, using external oil treatment will help moisturise and strengthen skin. It can be applied as an overnight treatment for its relaxing and anti-inflammatory and its cell growth stimulating properties.

If you are starting to get stretch marks, then the increased anti-inflammatory and cell-stimulating nutrients may help prevent further stretch marks from forming.


Is it Safe to use Argan Oil During Pregnancy?

Argan Oil is almost certainly safe to use during pregnancy.

Although there are currently no specific scientific studies into this. However, we know that Argan Oil has been used for many centuries by the Berber women of Morocco. They enjoy natural protection against stretch marks during pregnancy without any reported side effects.

Argan Oil is organically produced which means there are no potentially harmful chemicals used at any stage of the process. By comparison, commercial anti-stretch mark products often contain a long list of chemicals that may well have unknown side effects.

In fact, Culinary Argan Oil can be eaten for is health benefits! So it is probably safe to assume that Argan oil is safe to use when pregnant.


How to use Argan Oil for Stretchmarks

Argan Oil is easy to apply for stretch marks.

Ideally, start applying as skin first starts to stretch.

After birth, it is advisable to continue use for a month or two or until you feel skin has returned to normal.

Use regularly use over a long time the treatment may help reduce stretch mark scars.


Body Building, Weight Gain

You will often see stretch marks where there is rapid stretching skin.
