Fade Stretch Marks With Nutritional Food

Stretch marks on the skin are common in men and women. Women are more susceptible to streaks on the skin. Stretch marks are a form of scarring, which happens when the skin stretches beyond its capacity. The causes are growth spurts, weight gain, and pregnancy. Protect your skin against stretch marks by feeding it with nutrient-dense foods. Eating nutritional foods can even heal the scarred skin and reduce the appearance of these stretch marks.

Vitamins For Healthy Skin

Vitamin A, E & C, Zinc & Essential fatty acids repair and nourish the skin. They also help our body produce collagen, essential for healthy skin, hair, nails and other organs. Plenty of water helps keep the skin hydrated, a must for skin elasticity. Lots of fresh vegetables help with detoxification and supply the body with most of its nutrients.

The food you put in your body affects how it looks and feels. Nourishing your body from the inside out is the most effective way to combat stretch marked skin and promote natural healing.
