How to Reduce Pregnancy Stretch Marks with Revitol Stretch Mark Cream

You must REDUCE stretch marks DURING pregnancy because afterward, getting rid of stretch marks can only be accomplished with expensive laser treatments, which won’t entirely eliminate them either. Once you know you’re expecting, learning how to prevent stretch marks is important, because the sooner you begin taking steps to minimize damage to the delicate abdominal and breast tissue, the easier it will be for your body to return to its pre-pregnancy state after giving birth. Although stretch marks CANNOT be totally eliminated if you are genetically predisposed, have delicate connective tissue, experience rapid weight gain during your pregnancy or have excessively dry skin, you can do a few simple things to help minimize the damage. Here are some suggestions:

How to Prevent Stretch Marks During Pregnancy

1. Hormonal changes in your body will affect your collagen level which will in turn cause your skin’s elasticity to diminish.

To augment collagen production you need to increase your vitamin A and C intake (from natural sources), add sulfur rich foods to your diet, and try to eat as many RAW vegetables as possible. You need to eat raw carrots, green leafy vegetables and include kale, spinach, asparagus, as well as olives, cucumbers, celery, beets, red peppers, fresh tomatoes and avocados to your daily food plan.

In the fruit department, try increasing your intake of blueberries and blackberries – best eaten raw, and melons, especially cantaloupe and honeydew. If you’re not a strict vegetarian / vegan, you can include tuna and salmon, and if you’re vegan, soy based products (unrefined) and nuts, especially raw almonds (for whipped dips), cashews, pecans and Brazil nuts.

Increase your vitamin C intake through fresh squeezed orange and lemon juice. Get vitamin A from juiced carrots, drinking up to three glasses a day. (Buy a juicer because the juice MUST BE FRESH!)

2. Don’t let yourself get dehydrated. Drink 8 to 10 glasses of water a day. The body can’t produce collagen if it’s dehydrated. One misconception is that you should drink when you’re thirsty. However, by the time you’re mouth is dry, your body’s already dehydrated. You need to maintain hydration. A good way to do this is to drink half a glass of water every hour (although you shouldn’t drink immediately before, after or during meals because you need the gastric juices to digest your food).

The best moisturizer for your skin is not some topical cocoa butter, shea butter or emollient rich formulation, but an internal one. Drink water so your skin can cleanse and moisturize itself using natural collagen producing ingredients you feed it.

3. Stretch marks on breasts and the abdominal region can be reduced if your weight gain is SLOW and constant not rapid or erratic. It’s best to gain as little weight as possible by NOT EATING for TWO – just for YOU. In fact, all you need is to add a hundred to three hundred calories a day extra, which means eating one avocado (which is about 300 calories) or having an extra helping of tuna salad with lettuce, tomatoes, cucumber, celery, peppers, a few olives and some olive oil and that will also be about 300 calories. Most women should not gain more than 25lbs. or 30 lbs. during their pregnancy. If there’s no rapid or massive weight gain during pregnancy, getting rid of stretch marks will not be a serious issue because you won’t have them.

4. Although smearing your abdomen and breasts with cocoa butter during pregnancy may be a popular trend that some say will helps to reduce stretch marks, the truth is: It Won’t. It’ll make your skin softer and nicer to touch; it’ll help with dryness and eliminating flaking, but cocoa butter will neither prevent nor eliminate stretch marks.

This doesn’t mean that it’s not a good idea to massage your tummy and breasts with cocoa butter to feel relaxed and soothed, but as a preventative therapy the best stretch mark cream is made by Revitol. Not because its magical or will stop stretch marks, but because the Revitol stretch mark formulation has a balanced list of ingredients that actively helps boost collagen production, restore elasticity, and repair damage as it occurs.

Look at the list of Revitol stretch mark cream ingredients and judge for yourself:

1. Olive oil is one of the best skin regenerating oils in the world. I live in Andalucía Spain, in the region of Jaén, where a large percentage of the world’s olives and olive oil is produced. Natural olive oil eye cream and night cream are what the local women use (as do I). In the town where I live, ladies in their 70’s and 80’s have smooth luminous skin and pregnant women massage olive oil into their tummies. Local women tend to be slender and experience little weight gain, due to a Mediterranean diet, therefore stretch marks are not a problem for most expectant mothers. Why is this important to know? Because one of the main ingredients in Revitol stretch mark cream (which comprises 10% of the formula) is Squalene Oil, officially olea europeae isolate, an extract of olive oil, well-known in Spain for rejuvenating skin.

2. The Revitol stretch marks product is further fortified with Vitamin E to help cellular reconstruction. Vitamin E penetrates the skin and is absorbed easily when formulated in conjunction with olive oil.

3. We’ve already discussed how to prevent stretch marks by eating vegetables high in vitamin A because it stimulates collagen production, so it’s no surprise that the third most important ingredient in Revitol stretch mark cream is vitamin A.

4. Vitamin D3 may sound like an odd ingredient for helping to reduce or for getting rid of stretch marks, but once you know what it is, it’s not strange at all. Vitamin D3 is what the skin naturally produces when exposed to the sun. Although nowadays ladies are cautious about exposure to UV rays, the fact is that without sunlight on our skin we’d simply shrivel up. We MUST have vitamin D for healthy skin, but how many ladies are exposing their tummies to the sunshine on a regular basis? Most women, and even more so pregnant women, don’t get enough vitamin D. If you work in an office, live in an apartment and don’t sunbathe, you probably don’t get enough vitamin D for healthy skin.

5. DL-Penthenol is what the Revitol stretch mark solution tube says it contains, but what it doesn’t say is that Penthenol serves to reconstruct the layers of skin both dermal and epidermal because it’s B5. It helps if stretch marks are already starting to appear by minimizing their redness and making them remain as small as possible.

6. There are some final ingredients in the Revitol stretch mark cream that are soothing and feel good on your skin. One of those ingredients is Aloe Vera extract, which helps with repairing scar tissue.

7. The Revitol stretch mark formulation also includes grapefruit seed extract which is well-known to help strengthen weak or delicate skin and helps with elasticity.

8. Revitol makes one of the best stretch mark cream formulations because the list of ingredients are not hidden, do not claim to STOP stretch marks or eliminate them if you already have them, but to reduce your chances of getting them, help them to be smaller or less obvious if they start to form, and aid the skin to be healthy, supple, produce more collagen and have better elasticity while the delicate tummy area stretches to accommodate your growing baby. It can also be used on the breast area during pregnancy, although it’s best to discontinue once you start nursing.

Prevent and Reduce Stretch Marks with Lots of TLC

As a preventative treatment for stretch marks, used in conjunction with the suggested fresh veggie diet, plenty of juice and water, along with a slow weight gain plan, the Revitol pregnancy stretch mark cream will be a useful tool to keep your skin healthy during the months that your skin needs extra TLC. Learning how to prevent stretch marks as early as possible, in your first trimester, is essential because trying to do something about stretch marks after pregnancy will be frustrating.

Help Beyond Revitol Stretch Marks Formulas

  • What if you already had your baby and didn’t take steps to prevent stretch marks?
  • Are you asking yourself, “how do I get rid of stretch marks, now?”
  • Can laser treatment for stretch marks help to get rid of scars, redness or minimize scars?

State-of-the-art laser treatment for stretch marks can reduce redness, minimize and reduce their size and visibility. Although totally stretch mark removal is not possible, they can be made to almost vanish if they’re not very large. To reduce stretch marks, especially severe stretch marks after several pregnancies, laser treatments can be beneficial, but will NOT be a means of totally getting rid of stretch marks, just way to reduce them.

Second / Third Pregnancy Stretch Mark Prevention

If you’re pregnant for the second or third time, and already have stretch marks from previous pregnancies, the Revitol pregnancy stretch mark cream will not remove the scars you already have, but may help to prevent them from worsening and aid your skin to not stretch further leaving scarring.
