Peelings And Scrubbings Can Prevent Post Pregnancy Marks

A women's magazine from Germany has reported that regular peelings and scrubbing with a brush can help to prevent the marks that occur when the skin is stretched during pregnancy.

Peelings and washings increase circulation and keep the tissue elastic, the Munich-based magazine said. The same is true of massages.

When stretch marks are already visible on the skin, the use of certain substances can help.





Peptide and silicon derivatives are effective as well as plant extracts from ivy, lady's mantle, mimosa and holy thistle, the report said. Though they cannot remove the small streaks, they could help conceal them, it said.
