Tips For Men With Stretch Marks

medical conditions like diabetes. They can occurr with weightlifting, when muscles bulk up to quickly, causing the elasticity of the skin to be stretched. And stretch marks can also be caused by heredity. Yep, if one of your parents has stretch marks, then you are more likely to get them too! So what can be done about them? Here are some simple tips for help with stretch marks and preventing them.
Avoid certain steroids. If you’re a man who takes suppliments and works out, you may want to avoid certain kinds of steroids. Some steroids can cause hormonal imbalances and can deteriorate the collagen in the
Stay hydrated. One of the determining factors for getting stretch marks is your skin’s elasticity. So drinking minium of 8 glasses of water a day can help keep your skin hydrated.
Moisturize your skin. Dry skin doesn’t recover as quickly as hydrated skin and makes it much easier for stretch marks to form. Moisturizing your skin as well as keeping hydrated can reduce the chances of stretch marks being able to form. Try to find a moisturizer that is deep penetrating into the skin.
Eat a diet rich in vitamins. A great way to avoid stretch marks and lessen their chances of occurring is to eat a diet rich in omega fatty acids,anti-oxidants and vitamins:
- C – helps in collagen production hence skin firmness
- E – a main antioxidants that is also known to reduce the appearance of scars
- Selenium – a important mineral for the skin, promoting skin elasticity
- Zinc – which promotes elasticity in the skin, reduces acne, wrinkles as well as stretch marks.
I highly recommend a new stretch mark cream called Revitol.
It not only helps reduce the appearance of existing stretch marks, but also helps to keep them from forming in the first place!
give this a try! the results are gratifying!
