Water   1  0

[YEA]  From what have learned from living in a dry climate, water is the most essential tool in stretch mark prevention. I drink a gallon daily. Another thing most women don't know is that most body washes contain chemicals that dry out the skin, causing susceptibility to stretch marks ( sodium laureth sulfate). This chemical also causes mutation of the skin cells and overactive sweat glands (from the dryness), leading to acne of face and body. Keep your body moisurized with oil ( I would recommend grapeseed oil because it doesn't clog pores), not lotions because they clog pores. I am prone to stretch marks and when I just rinse my body with warm water, it stays moisturized just fine! I don't get stretch marks when I do these things, just when I stop and my skin gets dried out. I hope this helps! Good luck to you!

I agree. Water is a key component to maintaining skin elasticity. A good diet with lots of fibrous vegetables, using mild or natural cleansers on the skin and not showering every day are also important.

Yes water is super important!

Can someone explain to me a good way to heal scar tissue? It seems impossible without lasers I'd like to do it naturally. Thanks!!

I drink a lot of water a day, shower daily, all that stuff, but my stretch marks were brutal and did not go away at all. I even poured it on myself to see if it would work - no difference. I have huge dark ones on my breasts, stomach, crotch, arms, buttocks, and handles.

You're going to need a lot more than water to prevent them.
