Stretch marks and cellulite: the benefits of Aloe Vera

Cellulite and stretch marks are undoubtedly the most feared imperfections for women.

?

Cellulite affects as many as 85% of girls in the fertile age group.

?

Let’s take a look at why it forms and what the stages of cellulite are.

?

Hormonal:

Women with a high level of oestrogen are more at risk of developing cellulite. This hormone is responsible for the accumulation of excess weight in the lower part of the body.

?

Diet

A disordered diet rich in calories and fat increases the formation of cellulite.

?

Sedentary lifestyle

Accompanied – in case – by vices such as smoking or alcohol are real aggravators, but also the use of too tight clothes and the continuous use of excessively high shoes contribute to this problem.

?

There are three stages of cellulite:

?

Oedematous, the initial stage in which it is not noticeable to the naked eye, as the skin still appears homogenous. In this stage, cellulite appears in the form of blocks of excess fluid located in the adipose tissue and in small localized areas of the body, for example in the arms or thighs.

?

Fibrous cellulite, the famous “orange peel” characterized by dilated capillaries that cause the skin to become red if we apply pressure to it with our fingers.

?

Finally, the last stage is formed by Sclerotic Cellulitis. We can recognize it by the presence of large nodules, which is the evolution of orange peel. In this case, the surface of the skin now appears completely irregular, damaged and with a loss of elasticity.

?

One of the ways of treating this imperfection is to constantly practise self-massage which reactivates the circulation, and in this case our Firming body cream comes to our aid.

?

The use of the Body Cream is really simple: take the product and begin your draining massage, remembering always to start from the bottom upwards.

It is advisable to use the product every evening and consistently for truly visible results.

We also recommend the simultaneous intake of our Birch sap, which, thanks to its diuretic and draining actions, helps to combat water retention, a contributory cause of annoying problems such as cellulite, and promotes the correct functioning of the urinary system.

Stretch marks and scars

Stretch marks, scars caused by the breakdown of elastic fibres in the dermis. Another of the skin imperfections most feared by women.

?

The causes can be many (from pregnancy to a sudden weight change) and unfortunately in almost all cases the marks become permanent.

Nevertheless, Aloe Vera is an excellent natural remedy to reduce this unsightly phenomenon and at the same time take care of your skin.

Aloe Vera gel in particular, thanks to its many beneficial properties, is able to restore tone and elasticity to the skin, helping to reduce stretch marks.

?

The advantage is twofold: it is not greasy and is absorbed very quickly by the skin.

?

To obtain satisfactory results, we recommend constant and continuous use over time. Keep in mind that Aloe Vera gel is also an excellent natural moisturizer for the skin all over the body.
