This powerful blend of peptides, fruit and algae extracts and nourishing oils minimises the appearance of new and old stretch marks caused by pregnancy and weight fluctuations.
Goodbye Stretch Marks is so effective because it helps heal skin on the surface and also below, at the dermal tissue level. It also contains amazing ingredients to reduce pigmentation, even out skin tone and stimulate collagen production, which helps to regenerate skin cells and improve the structure of connective tissue.
Apply Goodbye Stretch Marks 3 times daily for 12 weeks to see maximum benefits. You have to be religious about applying because if you don’t apply continuously, you won’t see the best results.
If you are fading new, angry red scars, the difference will be much more measurable than if you are fading white or silver scars – but there will be an improvement.
Our Goodbye Stretch Marks is allergy tested, safety tested, clinically tested and pregnancy and breastfeeding safe. As with any cream, just remove from the nipple area prior to breastfeeding.
The newer the stretch mark, the better the result. We recommend treating stretch marks the moment you realise you have them. If you develop stretch marks during pregnancy, or have them from previous pregnancies and you are pregnant again, here’s your plan.
Apply Goodbye Stretch Marks 3 times daily. Paint it on like finger paint covering each stretch mark. Let it dry for 1 minute.
Apply your chosen The Tummy Rub Oil or Butter twice a day. Both products are completely safe to use whilst pregnant and breastfeeding.
Although it sounds like a big commitment – it will really help. We have gotten feedback from mamas that managed to reduce the visibility on their existing stretch marks and avoid any new stretch marks – all this during their second or third pregnancies. So it is a lot of work but a good result!
If your “baby” is older than ten, it’s better to look after your skin’s total health, rather than making stretch marks your focus. Mio Moisturising Miracles are a great place to start.
Remember we told you that gaining weight at a slow, steady rate was a good way to prevent stretch marks in the first place? Well, the way you lose weight now that baby has arrived can make a difference in how your skin recovers. Dropping too many pounds too quickly decreases your skin’s chances of bouncing back beautifully—and then you might be left with skin that just doesn’t fit.
Since exercise boosts circulation, targeting areas with stretch marks can help skin look smoother and healthier. And when you firm up the muscles, you can help make depressed stretch marks get more in line with surrounding skin. Here, exercises for the chest, hips and thighs, which are probably the areas you’re most concerned about.
1. T pushups (chest and abdomen): Start in a normal pushup position with your hands placed under your shoulders; hold plank position for a few seconds. While your body is up, twist your torso towards the ceiling and raise your right hand to the sky. Hold for a few seconds. Return to the initial pushup position and do 2 sets of 15 on each side. Remember to keep your body straight and don’t let your hips drop.
2. Lateral leg circles (hips and thighs): Kneel on a mat with your left knee against a balance ball and with the right leg extended. Lift the right leg straight out and slowly make small circle movements in each direction with your lifted leg and then switch sides. When making circles, try not to move your hips so your muscles do all the work.
Since you’re working your hardest to improve the appearance of stretch marks, you don’t want anything to derail your efforts. One thing that can actually make stretch marks look worse is the sun, so if you’re not going to cover up, be sure to apply sunscreen before heading outside. Older, silver-y stretch marks won’t get tan like the rest of your skin, so they’ll actually be more apparent after unprotected sun exposure.
But guess what? Self-tanners DO change the color of stretch marks, so if you want to even things out while Goodbye Stretch Marks works its magic, a faux glow is the way to go. (Just remember, a fake tan does not provide any sun protection, so you’ll need to slather on the SPF anyway.)
We’re sorry to say, there aren’t any specific foods that will improve the appearance of stretch marks overnight. But the best way to give your skin a fighting chance (and optimise the results you achieve with Goodbye Stretch Marks) is to feed your skin the nutrients it needs to get back in shape and stay strong.
When you snack on carrots, you can crunch your way to smoother skin thanks to a surge of vitamin A. Not only is vitamin A an antioxidant that protects your skin cells from damage, it also helps your skin product its own hydration in the form of sebum and it’s essential for healthy cell reproduction.
Yes, they taste good, but all that vitamin C found in citrus fruits is a treat for your skin as well. Vitamin C is an amazing antioxidant, and it’s also essential for collagen production.
