Is it true shea butter can help get rid of your stretch marks?

Is it true shea butter can help get rid of your stretch marks?

Stretch marks: Stretch marks are scars in the deeper layer of skin, so just like any other scar they can't be removed. Shea butter or cocoa butter may help prevent them (e.g. during pregnancy) but won't remove them. I treat stretch marks with a series of 6 fractional Erbium laser treatments which for most patients can reduce their appearance by up to 75%!!! Don't know of anything else with similar success rates. ...Read more

Will cocoa butter help in masking of stretch marks please explain?

Will cocoa butter help in masking of stretch marks please explain?

Not if they're there: Cocoa butter can help moisturize the skin and reduce the chances of developing stretch marks. If you have already developed stretch marks the cocoa butter may not help them fade. Body contour cream can help them fade http://link.videoplatform.limelight.com/media/?mediaId=cb17b01acc8b498d9e6ed4434ab37cc6&width=480&height=321&playerForm=Player ...Read more

Is the use of flat iron spray w/argon oil and  and lotion for stretch marks w/vite, collagen, cocoa butter safe during pregnancy? Many prods w/alcohol

Yes, however...: All of these should be quite safe. Alcohol should not be significantly absorbed into your skin, certainly not enough to harm your baby. However, some skin products do contain chemicals that can harm fetuses. Visit http://www.Ewg.Org/skindeep/ to check these products (it does mention moderate hazard of flat iron spray due to allergy potential but it has low developmental ; reproductive toxicity). ...Read more

How good is vitamin E oil at getting rid of acne scars?

How good is vitamin E oil at getting rid of acne scars?

Not effective: Acne scars are forever. Vitamin e oil in my experience is not good at treating these scars. The most effective means to treat acne scars (there are 3 types of acne scars) is usually to have skin resurfacing with an instrument called fraxel. You will need several treatments and they aren't cheap, but they are among the most effective and safest ways to treat acne scars. ...Read more

Can refined sweet almond oil be used over glyc acid or retinol to prevent redness and help hydratation? I read that this oil helps exfoliate the skin

Can refined sweet almond oil be used over glyc acid or retinol to prevent redness and help hydratation? I read that this oil helps exfoliate the skin

Not alone: Almond oil alone isn't an exfoliant which "removes dead skin cells" that requires the addition of either an acid(like glycolic or alpha hydroxy which chemically remove cells) or mechanical means(like sugar, salt, walnut shell). It is an emollient which "hydrates" and softens skin and may reduce redness. Retinols work at a molecular level to alter skin thickness, pigmentation and collagen. ...Read more
