How can I reduce my stretch marks?


The natural thing is to feel powerful and beautiful no matter what! In this post, we'll explain how to improve the elasticity of the skin, thus reducing the appearance of stretch marks. We love our tiger stripes, and we all have them, but if you want to learn how to hydrate your skin so it can stretch without scarring, read on!

Plant-derived oils are totally natural when obtained directly from the pressing of fruits or seeds. Their natural composition does not clog pores and allows the skin to breathe naturally.

Body oils will be your best friend when it comes to hydration. They are a kind of superfood for your skin as they also allow the skin to stretch without scaring.

Cellulite and stretch marks. Why do we have it? 

First of all, both cellulite and stretch marks are part of many women’s anatomy. With a healthy lifestyle and the use of natural products that help us detoxify our bodies, we can reduce the signs and effects of cellulite and stretch marks. Cellulite appears in most women after puberty. It’s also related to the physiology and anatomy of each woman. Cellulite is a group of fats that the metabolism has not been able to eliminate. As a consequence, they are deposited in different parts of the body. Having more or less cellulite, or not having it at all, is a fact that is linked to the elasticity of our skin, so a strong and elastic skin makes it more difficult for fat to become blocked in our metabolism.

Stretch marks are visible marks or lines on the skin caused when the skin changes rapidly and the elastic skin fibres break. Men or teenagers may also have them, it’s not only a women’s thing. If you use highly moisturising products, such as rosehip oil or marula oil, you can help fade stretch marks. That’s why body oils are called “liquid gold”. There is no better way to treat cellulite and stretch marks than using a body oil in the areas that require more hydration and treatment. What are the benefits of a body oil? It’s a highly hydrating product that nourishes and prevents cellulite, increasing the skin’s elasticity and firmness.

The best oil to improve cellulite and stretch marks

The main characteristic of plant-derived oils is that they penetrate the deepest layer of the dermis. These are some of the most prominent plant-derived oils we can find:

- Rosehip oil. It has the power to improve the appearance of scars, stretch marks and skin flaccidity.

- Marula oil. This oil is especially rich in antioxidants and highly moisturising. It is used for fading stretch marks, enhancing skin’s luminosity, minimising redness and irritations.

- Jojoba oil. It provides elasticity, smoothness and tightens the skin. It also helps to reduce the fat content under the skin, helping cellulite to be less prominent.

- Olive oil. Thanks to its large amounts of vitamins E and K, it helps to fight dry skin providing hydration and softness.

Our Golden Radiance Body Oil concentrates the 12 plant-derived oils to nourish and hydrate the deepest layers of the skin. It also includes the active ingredient Plankton Complex that stimulates the skin's elasticity and firmness.

How can you use the Golden Radiance Body Oil?

You should apply this anti-cellulite and anti-stretch mark body oil at least once a day. You will be seduced by the golden effect. To increase its benefits, first exfoliate your skin while enjoying a relaxing bath with the Biodegradable Raspberry Body Scrub and rinse with cold water. You’ll notice the difference! Once you have finished your relaxing moment, with the skin still wet to increase the benefits and improve the application of the oil on our skin, you will apply the body oil. Give small circular massages from the ankles to the abdomen with a slight upward pressure to stimulate blood circulation and so the body oil penetrates better into the skin. By doing this, your skin will be more nourished.
