The Right Ingredients are the Basis of any Good Skin Care Cream
Good-looking skin isn't always healthy, but healthy skin always looks good. This is why skin care is so important, especially when trying to deal with scars and stretch marks.
Scars and stretch marks can affect anyone, no matter their age. Of course, gender and the extent of the damage will determine the extent of scar tissue. However, treatment for scars and stretch marks is basically the same for everyone.
Almost everyone in the world has one or more scars on their body. Scarring is the result of the body's natural process that helps heal wounds. Small wounds will generally heal without leaving scar tissue, but more extensive wounds can leave permanent scars.
Scar removal methods include laser treatment, resurfacing techniques and surgery. However, scar removal can also be achieved by using a skin care cream that targets scar tissue. This type of treatment is often suggested when treating facial scars.
But before purchasing just any skin care product, make sure that the one you choose has the right ingredients. Vitamin C and Vitamin A are both essential to healthy skin. They are also important ingredients for scar repair.
Other natural ingredients such as omega-3 and omega-6 (essential fatty acids) can help promote the production of new, healthy cells that replace scar tissue. These ingredients can either be incorporated into a natural skin cream or incorporated to your diet.
Snail serum has also shown great results as a scar removal ingredient. It contains copper peptides, which can promote skin renewal by prompting new capillary formation, triggering the creation of elastin, collagen, and glycosaminoglycans.
Stretch Marks Creams
Stretch marks are the result of the excessive stretching of the skin. Excessive stretching can be caused by extreme weight gain or weight loss, pregnancy, and growth spurts. If you want to treat your stretch marks you can easily find several different types of stretch marks treatments such as natural creams and plastic surgery.
The most common problem with surgery is that it is only applicable to people with loose skin, meaning that those that have stretch marks but no loose skin should look for another alternative. Stretch mark creams made with rose hip oil are the best option for people with stretch marks. This natural ingredient is made with a combination of elements that make it ideal for stretch mark and scar treatment.
Rose hip seed oil is a traditional ingredient used for centuries by indigenous tribes in the south of Chile. This ingredient contains high levels of Vitamin A and Vitamin C, as well as essential fatty acids. Retinoic acid is an ingredient derived from Vitamin A. This ingredient helps increase the rate of cell turnover and replace epithelial cells. Vitamin C, on the other hand, encourages the production of collagen and elastin helping improve the appearance of scars.
Essential fatty acids are the basic factors involved in the regeneration and reparation of healthy skin membranes which means that rose hip oil can be used for the treatment for scars.
BERRYSISTIBLE Stretch Mark Cream is ideal for stretch marks and scars treatment. It is gentle enough to be used with facial acne scars. STRETCH MARK CREAM can also be used to help prevent the appearance of stretch marks as long as it is used before, during and after pregnancy.
