Dermology Stretch Mark Cream - Here's Our Review...
But you also know you must take care of yourself.
And that includes thinking of stretch marks - especially if you want to get back to the beach with that beautiful bouncing baby!
Between 75 and 90 percent of all pregnant women develop stretch marks during pregnancy. Look for the angry red lines to appear on your bulging abdomen, usually during the sixth or seventh month of pregnancy.
It's especially important to check if you have marks from previous pregnancies or if you have noticed stretch marks on your thighs or abdomen - possibly caused by weight gain or during puberty due to sudden and rapid growth of your body.
So can creams help?
Dermology Stretch Mark Prevention is a high quality blend of natural ingredients, including squalene oil, vitamin E, vitamin A, vitamin D3, aloe vera and grapefruit seed extracts.
It helps increase the production of collagen and elastin in the epidermis, increases the elasticity and strength of the skin, and keeps skin firm and healthy.
'A safe way to effectively reduce stretch marks,' say Dermology.
Stretch marks are formed when underlying tissue grows faster than the skin layers covering it, causing the small tears that create stretch marks.
And it is clear that genetics play a role in whether or not you are predisposed to getting stretch marks.
Talk to your mom! If she got stretch marks during pregnancy, you probably will.
So prevention is the key.
Stretch marks are scars, so difficult to eradicate completely.
Dermology Stretch Mark Prevention Cream is an all natural formula created to prevent the formation of stretch marks during pregnancy by increasing the elasticity of the skin.
The manufacturers also claim that the cream can reduce the appearance of existing stretch marks.
'It's never too late too start,' they say.
The use of topical creams for stretch mark prevention is recommended by dermatologists.
Other actions you can take include eating a healthy balanced diet that keeps your weight gain within the recommended range of 25 to 35 pounds. A controlled and steady weight gain will allow your skin to stretch at a steady rate.
Use a body brush or wash cloth to massage the at-risk areas which will help increase circulation.
Drink plenty of water. Water is critical to healthy skin.
Keep skin liberally moisturized beginning in the first or second trimester and through your pre-pregnancy weight.
So does Dermology Stretch Mark Prevention Cream work?
Certainly for some people:
'I've been using it every night and the stretch marks are already fading after 2 weeks. I absolutely recommend this product.'
According to the general online consensus, this cream appears effective at reducing the appearance of stretch marks and at improving the skin's look and feel.
Although there is also a general consensus that the development and severity of stretch marks is genetic.
'I religiously used stretch mark prevention creams/ointments throughout my entire pregnancy, twice a day, and still ended up with marks - apparently, it really is genetic!'
Dermology cream is unlikely to make existing stretch marks vanish completely but it seems to be capable of making them much less visible.
Which is why prevention is so crucial.
If you have stretch marks before pregnancy you will get more during pregnancy.
Overall, Dermology Stretch Mark Cream is an effective treatment and good value. Its ingredients target the skin's inner layers, promoting the production of collagen and elastin and improve overall skin health.
So rub some cream on your belly now. It will help your skin cope with your growing baby and I bet he or she will love that 'hands-on' feeling too!
