This month we address a very common skincare question: stretch marks. Since they do not go away easily, the focus has to be prevention. So, our suggestion is that whenever you are in a situation like pregnancy or a sudden body mass change, you invest in a preventive cream and also in some time to apply it daily. Hydrated and healthy skin is a good starting point to avoid developing stretch marks.
Always remember, none of these products will work if there are not applied daily with a soft massage on the affected areas. As in any skincare routine, commitment is also a must when we are talking about prevention.
