We have summer in the south and the swimming season will open soon. This means the beach and the maximum open skin. And every girl wants to look decent in an open swimsuit, but not everyone can boast about it.
One of the most common problems that spoil the summer mood is stretch marks or simply stretching. For many, they appear during pregnancy, and for someone after a sharp weight loss. In any case, there is nothing attractive in these stripes and getting rid of them is the dream of almost every woman.
One of the most common myths about stretch marks is the impossibility of their elimination without surgical intervention. Adherents of the scalpel and anesthesia, this rumor is carefully maintained and generally popular in every way, because it is their bread.
However, if you work hard, then it is quite possible to defeat strii and without dangerous and, unfortunately, almost useless operations. The main thing is to take a comprehensive and, of course, regularly.
At one time, they presented me with a book by Mirimanova, where a complex was described that helps to get rid of these strips, and I can safely say that it works. However, as always, I changed it somewhat by myself.
Stretch marks, to put it bluntly, are nothing more than scars left over by skin tears. And, since these are scars, they need to be polished slowly, removing the upper layers. The more we take off, the smaller the striae will be. But this should be done gradually and very carefully so as not to harm and not aggravate the situation.
Best suited scrubs. They not only polish the scars, but also massage the skin, make the blood circulate more actively.
Scrub can be bought at the pharmacy, but you can do it yourself. But I personally prefer homemade coffee, but perhaps this is just self-suggestion.
First, in the purchased scrubs, the particles, in my opinion, are too small, and, secondly, I like the smell of coffee. In addition, it is part of almost all anti-cellulite creams, he praises for losing weight and in general, in every possible way, this very coffee scrub is touted. So why not kill all the birds with one stone?
Since I always have no time to prepare all kinds of cosmetics, I just put a jar of ground coffee in the bathroom, sprinkle it on my hand and add shower gel – the scrub is ready. Thoroughly (but without fanaticism) three self.
By the way, if someone has problems with clogged pores and ingrown hairs – this procedure will quickly solve your problems.
Now it is necessary to moisturize the skin and provide it with nutrients so that our scars will quickly heal. Fans of Catherine Mirimanova use for this mummy, which is diluted with olive oil or body cream.
I prefer to use flaxseed oil, like our grandmothers, adding vitamins A, E and a few drops of aroma oils to it.
Cosmetologists recommend using oils of neroli, rosemary and rosehip. However, considering that I spend these procedures before bedtime, I prefer to add my favorites. Maybe not so useful, but then I fall asleep immediately.
The third step is the final one. Usually it is preferred to skip it, getting rid of stretch marks at home. This is his majesty massage.
In fact, in my opinion, massage is a cure for all ills. Headache, toothache, nausea, bad mood are treated with a massage no worse than pills.
Without massage, stretch marks, if left, are very slight. And for especially lazy (like, for example, I myself), clever scientists have invented massagers, which I highly recommend to get. Not so nice, of course, but very effective.
The main thing is to carry out procedures regularly and not to tinker. If you interrupt the procedure, the chance of the stria reappearing is extremely great.
