Partially due to genetics, stretchmarks are small tears in the dermis that result when the fat or muscle beneath the skin is growing at a faster rate than the skin itself. “Keeping the skin moisturized during periods of ‘stretching,’ such as pregnancy, may help prevent them from forming,” says San Antonio plastic surgeon Mark W. Greene, MD. If your weight is fairly steady, you may be less likely to develop stretchmarks, but there’s no guarantee they won’t form.
One of NewBeauty’s favorites for preventing and repairing stretchmarks is NaturaBisse’s Dermarepair. With its fresh scent and pudding-like texture-the secret behind why we love applying this cream day and night-Dermarepair employs hydrolyzed elastin, pumpkin and gotu kola to regenerate the skin and prevent the delicate tissues from deteriorating. While it works to lighten existing stretchmarks, it also helps prevent new ones from arising. Apply daily to stretchmarks or areas prone to stretchmarks until fully absorbed.
