As Frank Sinatra sang, "That's life...and stretch marks." Okay, Frank, even with his many marriages, never mentioned stretch marks. But, like wrinkles, stretch marks are a part of life—as awkward as they may look when you're trying on a swimsuit. Some women refuse to eradicate the evidence of having a child, preferring natural womanly looks.
Not even surgery can completely remove stretch marks—no stretch mark treatment can. You can use a stretch mark cream, such as Stretch Away, to replenish your collagen levels. Also try following these other stretch mark treatment hints:
• To rebuild the tissue, use skin care products such as moisturizers rich in vitamin E and cocoa butter.
• To prevent stretch marks the first time or to ward off new marks, drink plenty of fluids and eat a diet rich in zinc, silica and vitamin E.
• Exercise to keep your skin supple, moving, and glowing.
