Stretch marks are one of the most common skin problems people are faced with today and yet, there are still a lot of misconceptions about this condition and what can be done to deal with it.
The blog post we have chosen to analyze today is called “Don’t Be Fooled By These 10 Popular Home Remedies for Stretch Marks,” by a writer named Lauren. The article, which appears on the popular website www.myawesomebeauty.com, offers readers advice on how to handle stretch marks effectively.
Lauren starts her article by debunking some of the most popular myths about home remedies for stretch marks. She then lists and describes ten of the most common home remedies for stretch marks and explains why they do not really work. The remainder of the article consists of a description of three scientific methods Lauren recommends for dealing with stretch marks effectively, plus a list of six products she found online that actually work to get rid of stretch marks.

Stretchmarks are a common and aesthetically displeasing result of rapid weight gain or loss, often associated with pregnancy, puberty, and weight lifting. But stretchmarks aren’t limited to these events. Sometimes they come out of the blue.
People who have struggled with stretch marks know how hard it is to get rid of them. There are a number of options ranging from expensive laser treatments to cheap home remedies. But before you spend hundreds or even thousands of dollars at your dermatologist’s office, do your research.
The most popular of the home remedies for stretch marks is cocoa butter. While some people swear by it, there isn’t much scientific evidence that it works. In fact, some studies show that cocoa butter can actually damage the skin in a way that increases the appearance of stretch marks.
Another popular remedy for stretch marks is olive oil. When applied directly to the skin olive oil can reduce inflammation and help fight infection. However, there are no studies showing that olive oil helps with stretch marks or scars in any way.
It’s no wonder that home remedies for stretch marks are so popular! The market is currently flooded with hundreds of products, most of which are expensive and do not work. Women are constantly looking for a better way to treat these unattractive scars.
It seems like every month there’s an ad for a new cream or serum that claims to eliminate stretch marks. But the truth is there is no miracle solution for stretch marks. Not even the most expensive creams and lotions can get rid of them completely.
Even if you can’t completely get rid of your stretch marks, you can greatly improve their look with one simple technique: use a good stretch mark cream!
There are two types of creams that claim to get rid of stretch marks: those that claim to work by penetrating deep into the skin, and those that claim to work by stimulating collagen production in the skin.
Unfortunately, neither one of these methods is effective at getting rid of stretch marks permanently. There is only one thing that will truly help you get rid of your stretch marks and it’s called laser treatment.
Stretch marks form when the skin is stretched rapidly, such as during pregnancy. They are thin, indented streaks that can appear on various areas of the body, including the abdomen, thighs, buttocks and breasts.
Stretch marks may first appear as pink, red or purple lines that fade to a light gray color over time. The marks can be unsightly and make you feel self-conscious about your appearance. Many people search for home remedies to get rid of stretch marks.
Essential oils, including rosehip oil, frankincense and helichrysum oil, may help reduce the appearance of stretch marks by improving skin elasticity and reducing scar tissue formation.
Basal cell carcinoma is the most common form of skin cancer. It gets its name from the basal cells in the lower part of your skin’s outer layer.
Basal cell carcinoma usually appears as a small, fleshy bump or nodule. It can also be flat and look like a scar. It may be shiny and pale, waxy, or yellow. Unlike melanoma, it rarely spreads to other parts of your body (metastasizes).
Most often, basal cell carcinomas appear on the head, neck, and arms because these areas get more sun exposure. But you can get them anywhere on your body. They’re more common in men than women.
Basal cell carcinoma is the most common form of skin cancer. It arises from basal cells, which are found in the deepest layer of the epidermis. They are round cells that produce new skin cells as old ones die off.
Basal cell carcinoma grows slowly and rarely spreads to other parts of the body (metastasizes). However, it can be locally invasive and destructive. According to the Skin Cancer Foundation, more than 4 million cases of basal cell carcinoma are diagnosed each year in the U.S., and one in five Americans will develop it at some point in their lives.
While basal cell carcinoma is very treatable if caught early, preventing it is preferable to having to undergo treatment. You can reduce your risk of developing basal cell carcinoma by following a few simple guidelines:
Avoid exposure to direct sunlight between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m., when ultraviolet rays are most intense
Use sunscreen with a sun protection factor (SPF) of 30 or higher whenever you go outdoors
Wear long pants and sleeves made from tightly woven fabrics that protect against UV light
Wear a hat with a wide brim that shades your face, ears, and neck
Avoid indoor tanning
If you’ve ever had a “mole” that grew back after being shaved off, or a spot that didn’t heal, it might have been a basal cell carcinoma. But don’t panic! If caught early, they can be treated.
