DIY Stretch Mark Cream
You don’t like your lines? We tell you what you can do to prevent stretch marks, as well as reducing the appearance of both new and old ones.
The fine lines on your skin have many reasons: They can be genetic or occur during pregnancy, puberty, or sudden weight or muscle gain.
Nearly every woman develops marks at some point, mostly around the belly, hips, and thighs. BUT: No worries, you don’t have to live with them forever.
The secret is skin elasticity! The more elastic your skin is, the less likely it is that you will have stretch marks. Therefore you should moisturize it well, with the RIGHT things.
