Treat stretch marks with Honeypatch
Unsightly stretch marks most often appear on the stomach, breasts, thighs, buttocks and arms. They are caused by tears in the dermis which cause the appearance of streaks on the epidermis.They are first purplish-red in color and then resemble scars, becoming whitish.
Their formation can occur for different reasons, for example:
- During periods of strong growth during adolescence or pregnancy when the stomach becomes rounded, or during significant weight changes. These strong and rapid variations have repercussions on the elasticity of the skin.
- Some hormonal problems or changes can have repercussions on the production of collagen, which is important for skin elasticity.
- Certain diseases, such as syndrome de Cushing due to excess cortisol, are the cause of the formation of stretch marks.
What is the difference between red stretch marks and white stretch marks?
When they appear on the skin, stretch marks are red or purplish in color. As they age, they turn white. This is when they are red that we must act before it is too late.
How to prevent pregnancy stretch marks?
A recent study indicates that more than 90% of pregnant women develop stretch marks.
Three signals alert future mothers to their appearance: rapid weight gain, associated with redness and itching. The skin becomes distended and the dermis stretches to the point of causing subcutaneous micro-tears which will appear as red streaks. If these stretch marks persist, they change their appearance and take the form of white streaks.
Applying HONEYPATCH BALM or MATERNITY, in small quantities, to irritated areas, from the early stage, will nourish the skin and immediately calm itching.
