What are stretch marks and cellulite? What causes these? How to get rid of stretch marks and cellulite? DIY remedy for stretch marks and cellulite treatment.
Cellulite gives a specific appearance to the skin, like that of the dimpled surface of an orange peel. Poor diet, hormonal changes, age, and genetic predisposition – all of these causes cellulite formation. It is a problem that can affect anyone, including men, women, and children. It can even affect people who have relatively no fat in their bodies.
The same is about stretch marks – anyone can develop stretch marks. They are a result of skin stretching and an increase of cortisone in your system. Stretch marks typically appear as bands of parallel lines on your skin. These lines are a different color and texture than your normal skin, and they range from purple to bright pink to light gray. This type of scarring occurs when the skin cannot resume normal form after a period of intense growth, often due to pregnancy, weight gain, weight loss, or puberty.
The good news: one can get rid of cellulite and stretch marks naturally by following some home remedies.
