How To Get Rid Of Stretch Marks Fast
Depending on location and severity, scar tissue may be minimized by partial removing the dead skin layer. Generally, manual exfoliation is much helpful with new stretch marks. Use homemade treatments of baking or oatmeal soda, or try commercially prepared ones for gentle and effective exfoliation.
A chemical peel uses acid to remove the top layers of skin. In most cases, a surface peel using alpha hydroxy or beta hydroxy acid may even out the skin tone, but is unlikely to do much to get rid of stretch marks. A peel using phenol, also called carbolic or phenic acid, may be more effective, as it penetrates very deep into the skin. Phenol peels can be painful, however, although an anesthetic is usually used. In addition, this type of peel may cause scarring or infection, and should only be performed by a qualified medical professional.
How To Get Rid Of Stretch Marks At Home
You should ensure that you ingest supplements on a daily basis that contains an ingredient called "Ascorbic Acid". There are also many foods that contain this ingredient that may be consumed on a daily basis. Examples of these food products include citrus fruits and kiwi. According to clinical studies, this type of acid assists in improving how much elastin the body produces and in strengthening the elastin protein that is already within the body.
Maintain a consistent weight. Since rapid weight gain or loss is the main cause of stretch marks, the easiest way to prevent them is to keep your weight steady. Obviously, this advice doesn’t work for everyone. If you are overweight, it’s healthier to lose a few pounds (and risk getting stretch marks) than it is to stay at your current weight. And of course almost all pregnant women have to gain weight in a short period of time. However, if you intend to lose or gain weight (even through pregnancy), you should consult your doctor for tips and guidelines on how to do it in a timely, safe and healthy manner.

I felt no difference. Although I hadn’t physically been there before, every single street I passed through looked so familiar to me. I felt I belong to a place my feet had never trod and my eyes never seen. I wasn’t a mere visitor and I hated to be treated so. Khan-Yunis is my home, too. “How come I was damn passionate about travelling and exploring the outside world and I forgot I needed first to explore the world I came from?” I thought. It was too painful to realize that I hardly knew about my Gaza, let alone my Palestine.

Beyond my Gaza, I see the whole Universe
During my silent hours, I travel. So lost in thoughts, my eyes journey from earth to heaven, from this tiny spot of Gaza to the whole Cosmos, from the world’s biggest prison to absolute freedom. The sky. The sea. The sand. And the seagulls. By my strong power of meditation on each, I can heal myself. They say I lack some communication skills; perhaps I do, but at least I can communicate with myself. I need neither a psychiatrist nor a neurologist. I haven’t ever needed a doctor or visited a clinic during my lifetime; I know pretty well how to cure myself when I undergo some mental dysfunctions, maybe, due to the stresses and strains of life in Gaza. My hours of silence make everyone around wonder what on earth I am doing. Nothing. I am just enjoying “the sweetness of doing nothing.” I am actually seeing a unique work of art.
