The way our skin grows is by experiencing something new, changing that experience, and then observing the effects. When you get new clothes or shoes, some area of your body will want to stick around for a while to show off in the new look!
The same thing happens with your skin. If you read about cosmetic procedures such as laser hair removal or microdermabrasion, what happens next is there’s a very slight risk of getting stretch marks nearby the treatment site.
That doesn’t mean it always works, but odds are good if you do these things elsewhere on your body, you’ll end up with very few (if any) stretch mark-related problems.
While most people agree this process can be quite effective, there are also risks involved. One of those comes down to how quickly you wear out after treatments like laser hair removal and microdermabrasion.
If you do anything close to the job away from home, there’s a chance you won’t have anywhere to go immediately afterwards. This is called “travel stress” and it’s totally normal, but it does put extra pressure on your skin and bone system to recover.
Hardly anyone ever complains about having stretch marks before they stop wearing their hair for a month or two, so don’t worry too much about that unless you know yourself better than everyone else does.
How do you get rid of stretch marks
The best way to see if tattoos are visible through your current skin layer is by experimenting with your makeup or beauty products. Because most people poach in their own product sales, many brands leave the exposers open for extended exposure.
Many cosmetic companies include a test group that has to use their product for several hours before being checked to see if there are any reactions. This is similar to how manufacturers test new drugs.
This would be an ideal place to check if your tattoo is still concealed or not since it’s usually only used for a short time.
Try oil pulling
One of the most interesting health routines is called oral-facial massage or oil pulling. This has become very popular in recent years as people put it to use for its potential benefits.
Oil pulling comes from an ancient practice where you take some natural oils, such as coconut or olive oil, and pull them through your mouth for a specific amount of time.
The reason many people begin doing this is because they notice that their skin looks healthier and more like theirs naturally. Healthier looking skin is a lovely thing to strive for!
Oral-facial massage was originally used to treat dry scalp conditions, but studies show that it can help improve overall oral health by changing the pH level of your saliva.
This may prevent gum disease or even reduce symptoms of tooth decay due to changes in how bacteria interacts with your body.
When you perform oil pulling, some reports say that you should be able to see the effect within one week! After that, you can continue to do it once every couple days to get more benefits.
Use a moisturizing lotion
While most people’s skin gets tight due to natural fluid loss during pregnancy, some women develop very thin layers of fat that eventually disappear. This can sometimes result in stretch marks appearing or becoming more visible.
When this happens, it is important to remember that the process will go away by itself. There is no need to worry about them unless you make changes to your diet or lifestyle.
One thing many patients do not know about their body’s development during pregnancy is that new tissue grows where there are wounds or breaks in the surface.
This includes hair growth, nails growing longer, and new skin developing around old scars. All of these things occur because the body uses scar tissue to fill in missing pieces of skin.
While this may seem like an ugly side to skin, one good way to deal with this problem is to eat foods that contain vitamin A. These include carrots, spinach, sweet potatoes and peas.
Use a hydrating cream
When it comes to choosing products to treat your skin, make sure you are aware of what functions they perform. A lot of people add too much product to their skin because they think that if there is more coverage, their skin will look better. But this can cause dry or irritated skin!
Some products claim to be a “treatment” for stretch marks, but none have been confirmed to work effectively. Because most don’t agree on how well they work, we cannot recommend any specific ones as treatments or cures for dark under-eye circles or general sun damage.
However, using a good quality retinoid gel or night cream once a week can help improve the texture of your skin and reduce inflammation. Retinoids such as tretinoic (or vitamin A) acids work by helping regulate cell growth and death, which may also contribute to the overall health and appearance of your skin.
Use a vitamin C supplement
When it comes down to it, there are two main reasons why some skin may show small, pink lines or marks. The first is sun exposure, which we discussed earlier.
The second is something called melasma, which is a very common problem that happens when your body doesn’t get enough of an immune system nutrient called iron.
When this occurs, your skin becomes pigmented more than normal, and in some cases, it can even turn white. This is because melanin acts as a protective layer against sunlight and oxidative stress.
However, if you have melasma, then your body no longer produces adequate levels of melanin, so it cannot protect yourself from excess UV light and oxidative damage.
That means your skin can become prematurely aged and wrinkled. In fact, one study found that people with severe melasma experienced average age-related changes such as dryness, rough texture, and thinning of the epidermis three years faster than those without it.
Fortunately for tattooed individuals, research has shown that using a topical antioxidant gel can help prevent darkening and wrinkles caused by melasma.
This includes lactic acid, which is often used in dermal treatments like microdermabrasion and chemical peels.
Use a vitamin D supplement
When it comes to protecting your skin from sun exposure, you want to be as informed as possible! While staying indoors is one of the best ways to prevent overly exposed areas of your skin, wearing protective clothing such as hats and sunglasses are just as important.
One area that can be particularly vulnerable to overexposure to the sun is your thighs. Between swimming in the pool or taking hot yoga classes, people will often notice white lines under their dermis (the top layer) of skin. These lines occur due to dry skin caused by lack of moisture, and they usually disappear within a few weeks.
However, for some individuals, these lines may persist longer than this. This is because there could be another reason for the dried out tissue- namely, stretch marks.
Does the color of your tattoo match your natural hair color? If so, you might not know it yet, but your tattoos could also play a part in helping or hurting your skin’s elasticity.
For example, red ink uses up more glucose than other colors, which can cause your body to store too much of the nutrient. Glucose is an essential ingredient in the production of collagen, the most common protein in human soft tissues like skin and muscles.
Without enough collagen, your skin may become very thin and tight, creating those ugly “stretch mark” symptoms we mentioned earlier.
Use a retinoid cream
One of the most common causes for stretch marks is poor skin elasticity. When your body wants to lose moisture, it sometimes goes after all the water with hormones or growth factors. Your body then uses that extra energy to create more solid connective tissue to hold everything together!
This can happen at any time during pregnancy, even outside of pregnant periods. Sometimes people will get stretch marks due to stressors in their life as well, such as job changes or financial issues.
A hormonal imbalance can also contribute to this risk factor. This happens when there are too many estrogen or progesterone molecules in your system, which reduce collagen production. If you’ve been through menopause, you already have lower levels of these hormones than someone who hasn’t gone through it yet.
Another cause for dry skin comes from using alcohol-based products like lotion or shampoo, which are typically stripped away by washings. These chemicals don’t always completely go down the drain, instead clinging to your skin and causing it to become tight and dry.
It’s important to note that although using retinoids or other skin care treatments may seem like the quick fix for lost skin elasticity, using them wrong could actually make things worse. Make sure you do some research before experimenting on yourself or your baby.
Do a skin peel
When getting your tattoo, you may also notice small lines or wrinkles that do not go away. These are called stretch marks or striae. They occur when new skin is trying to heal more quickly than older, thicker skin.
The reason some people get this line with their tattoos is because some artists use special tools or needles to take very long for the ink to dry. Some of these can leave leftover fluids in the body which could be absorbed by the next layer of skin.
This doesn’t usually cause problems unless it happens frequently or there are large amounts of ink used. However, if you are ever concerned about how your tattoo looks, we would suggest doing an individual peel for every area of the body where stretch marks sometimes appear.
