If you are affected by discolored streaks on your skin, then you may be affected by stretch marks! Stretch marks occur when the body has gone through a weight change or rapid growth. Common weight changes include: pregnancy, puberty, weight lifting, weight gain and rapid weight loss. When stretch marks develop it is important to target them as soon as possible in order to obtain significant results. Stretch marks that are silver/white in appearance are fairly old marks. Individuals may have more trouble fading the appearance of old stretch marks compared to new marks that are pink, purple or red in appearance.
When stretch marks form they highly affect the hips and buttocks. Both hip stretch marks and buttock marks can be managed by using a topical stretch mark product. Topical products are marketed to smooth and soften the look of skin that is affected by stretch marks. Topical products can be used in your own home on your own time as long as the product is applied as directed. Also, some topical stretch mark products are clinically proven to work. It is important to review the product manufacturer’s website to see the clinical trials performed on the product and the results that may be obtained from use of the product.
Some stretch mark creams and other types of topical products are not marketed for all stretch mark types. For instance, there are some creams that are only formulated for stretch marks on buttocks. These products should only be applied to the butt and not to other stretch marks areas. Buttock stretch mark creams help smooth the look of skin as well and can even help the overall appearance of the applicable area. Before applying the product, review the warnings section on the product label. Skin on the buttock can be delicate and some creams may potentially cause irritation or discomfort for certain individuals.
Hip stretch marks and buttock stretch marks can be unpleasant looking. These marks can attract attention that women do not necessarily want. Often time’s individuals may feel that others are making judgments about the discolored marks on the skin. Some women become so conscious of their marks that they do not feel comfortable wearing their bikini in the summer. However, stretch marks on buttocks and hips are a common issue that can be easily maintained with creams for butt stretch marks.
