3 interesting facts about stretchmarks
What causes stretch marks?
Who gets stretch marks?
Young stretch marks are easier to treat than older ones
The stretchmarks that are less than a year old are the young ones. They appear when the skin is in distress. They are easier to treat because the skin is still in the process of trying to heal. The older stretchmarks change colour as an indication that collagen bundles mix with abnormally thin elastin fibres but are unable to fully realign themselves. Normal elastin fibres are still absent.
When your skin is stressed, it pulls apart and stretchmarks form. This can easily be prevented or slowed down through making the skin as moisturised as possible. This is where the concept of tissue oil comes from. It is a highly moisurising oil that does not leave the skin feeling overly oiled or greasy. It does not wipe off too easily onto clothing and it has a lot of natural properties in it.
