Skin Care Total

Stretch Marks and Cellulite

There are probably dozens of cellulite and stretch mark creams in the market but most women would testify that it is extremely difficult to deal with these skin conditions. Often seen as imperfections, it is difficult to believe that these problems are just a result of nutritional deficiency and a breakdown under the surface. Ironically, most men and women cannot actually tell apart stretch marks from cellulite, let along finding a proper anti-stretchmark or anti-cellulite treatment. Here we will provide you some expert insights into what actually causes and affects these conditions.


Have you noticed that it is common to get stretch marks in pregnancy? Stretch marks occur when skin is expanded or stretched over its natural limits for prolonged periods. Pregnancy and an increase in weight are the common triggers here. On the other hand, cellulite is simply accumulation of water and fat under the skin surface. Toxin build-up is directly linked to the condition and that is why most cellulite creams target penetrating to deeper levels.


Initially, stretch marks can be a little raised with pale purple and red appearance but with time, skin flattens out and these marks look more like creases in the skin. These skin marks also lose colour gradually and appear to be lighter than the complexion of the surrounding skin. Topical stretch marks solutions trigger firming and toning the tissues. However, it is easy to spot cellulite with their puckered and raised appearance. They look more like orange peels or golf balls and the only similarity they share with stretch marks is that they can be unsightly to look at.


Although, stretch marks and cellulite create no health-related complications, men and women want them to be removed for cosmetic reasons. There are many invasive and radiotherapy options but Skin Care Total is more inclined towards natural treatments to be used at home and without any prescription. Our anti-cellulite treatments target fat accumulation and toxin build-up directly while stretch marks creams and serums improve texture working on all layers of skin. In fact, we also have stretch marks solutions to be used for preventive care.


Though it is difficult to avoid stretch marks and cellulite, sudden weight gain or loss can push skin beyond its limits. Ageing can also worsen the condition but did you know that smokers are at a higher risk of cellulite? In fact, obesity, poor diet and low water intake have also been linked with these skin conditions. While using cellulite creams and stretch marks creams, make sure to consider the above-mentioned factors too.
