WATER TO PREVENT STRETCH MARKS
Water helps detoxify your body and keens the cells in your skin fresh and plump. When they skin is dry there is no elasticity to it. Staying hydrated will prevent your skin from ripping and will prevent or lessen the appearance of stretch marks. I would recommend drinking at least 8 liters of water per day. If you find it difficult to ingest this much water, try carrying a large water bottle with you. All you have to do is refill it throughout the day. You can also try eating lot’s of vegetables. Consuming vegetables contain a large percentage of water, another great way to stay hydrated.
Cocoa butter is made from vegetable oil and cocoa beans. It’s an antioxidant and easily melts into the skin when applied. It is often a main component in lotions and creams. Collagen is a protein in the human body that holds the hold body together. So it’s reasonable to assume that stretch marks can also be caused from a lack of collagen.
