Stretch marks on the chest are a common cosmetic problem. To remove them, it is necessary to identify the cause, and then choose an effective method of dealing with them.
What are stretch marks?
Stretch marks on the chest are scars on the skin that vary from purple to white. The color largely depends on the condition of the blood vessels. At the initial stage of appearance, the scars are quite noticeable, gradually acquiring a pinkish tone. If you do not treat them, they remain on the chest forever.
The main reasons for the appearance of such a defect are:
- hormonal changes that lead to a decrease in elasticity;
- increased stress on the skin, as a result of which there is a strong stretching of the epithelial cells.
Stretch marks do not affect your health, but they do lead to skin beauty problems. External defects that a woman regularly sees in a mirror image negatively affect the emotional state, so it is recommended to get rid of them forever.
Methods for dealing with stretch marks
The fastest way to remove stretch marks on the chest is plastic surgery. Unaesthetic scars are removed using laser treatment. But it is better to replace the procedure with more gentle methods. For example, when visiting a beauty parlor, a wide range of services is offered:
- medical wraps;
- breast massage;
- special masks;
- ultrasound therapy;
- chemical peeling and others.
If there is no way to see a specialist, home remedies can be used. The simplest and most effective method is to rub essential or plant oils into the skin. Olive, almond, flaxseed oil contains a large amount of vitamin E, which is necessary for the regeneration of epithelial cells. With light circular movements, the oil is applied to the breasts, which leads to the enrichment of the skin with beneficial microelements.
Even fresh stretch marks can be removed with a special scrub. To prepare it, you need to mix a glass of sugar, a glass of salt, half a glass of olive oil. After taking a bath or shower, apply on the breast skin and massage the problem area for 10-15 minutes. Then remove residues with warm water and grease with nourishing cream.
Helps improve the skin condition of carrots. Pour the grated carrots with water, and after 20 minutes squeeze the resulting pulp and add a small amount of almond oil. Apply the resulting gruel to the chest area and leave overnight. Remove the carrot compress in the morning and wash your skin with warm water.
We must not forget about the diet. To keep the skin beautiful and supple, you need to consume plenty of seafood, nuts, vegetable oils, fresh fruits and vegetables.
