Stretch marks – every woman’s nightmare – caused by skin that doesn’t want to go back to its original state after rapid weight gain. Pregnancy is one of the most common causes of stretch marks; in the case of a pregnancy, and the majority of other stretch marks in fact, stretch marks are caused by a hormone called glucocorticoids. This hormone breaks down the dermis, which supports the skin, preventing the ‘bounce back’ of the skin. Pregnancy increases the circulation of this hormone which is why pregnant women are prone to stretch marks.
Many people will recommend that stretch marks are not treated during pregnancy, instead you should wait until after the birth and until you have finished breast feeding. However, Dermalogica’s Ultra Rich Body Cream is safe to use during pregnancy and can help reduce the severity of the stretch marks.
Not only does this formula reduce the appearance of stretch marks but it also deep hydrates and moisturises exceptionally dry skin. The Ultra Rich Body Cream is filled with Dermalogica’s Environmental Protection Complex, including Glycolipids and Vitamin E that help to strengthen the skin’s natural barrier. It also includes Evening Primrose Oil, which renovates dry skin, along with Panthenol that helps with cell repair.
Don’t let stretch marks bring you down, eliminate their appearance with the Dermalogica Ultra Rich Body Cream.
