During the adolescent age, stretch marks are such a common issue in life (I believe it is next to acne). Although it is a given fact, that majority of us will have stretch marks at certain point in our lives. People still tend to over react when the look in the mirror and notice a red or purple blemish somewhere on the thighs or belly.

But come to think of it, you can develop stretch marks by adding or dropping weight quickly,during puberty, pregnancy etc. That means that there is really no way to escaping these scars.

Although stretch marks fade over time it truly never vanishes. It does fade to a light silvery color that is hardly noticeable though, but still a change on one area of your skin can be awkward.Stretch marks on the other hand are harmless to your health;yes, they may be unpleasant to most that have them. But it is nature’s way of telling us that we are not taking care of our body. Let me share a few preventive measures you can try to prevent stretch marks.

First,I would like to reiterate that these preventive measures to prevent stretch marks may not work for everybody. Some are genetically prone to stretch marks. It is unavoidable and at some point in their life they will see them appear. Others get stretch marks in the course of pregnancy and this is quite very hard to avoid. As a matter of fact, about 65%-75% of pregnant women develop stretch marks between the 7th and 8th month of their pregnancy.As belly grows bigger and fast, stretch mark prevention may be close to impossible. Nevertheless, for the others who want to win the battle against the purple lines you can try these measures.

A healthy diet will be the initial step to prevent stretch marks. If the body is completely healthy, your skin will absolutely be healthy as well. Be sure to take plenty of high protein foods. Protein is made up of of chains of amino acids that are used by our bodies to help develop muscles, hair, skin and nails. It also tends to strengthen collagen in the skin. Note that the weakening of collagen causes stretch marks.

Secondly, drink sufficient amount of water. We already know that the more fluid the bodies have,the better, since the skin will be nourished and if the skin can maintain its elasticity there will be less chances of having stretch marks.

Regular exercise is also good for the body. But do not overdo it or you will see stretch marks appear with those bulges. Avoid over exposure to the sun. It can harm your skins natural nourishment.

If all these precautionary measures didn’t work, there’s always an alternative available. Over-the-counter products like lotions and creams are always offered. But for lasting flawless coverage you can use an Airbrush Makeup kit. Just a few sprays and you will have the perfect coverage you can imagine.
