Hands up if you have been struggling with stretch marks, wondering what it will take to make them disappear?
You can stop your search because retinol could be the answer you've been looking for!
Although it's most well-known for its ability to help improve cell turnover in the skin, retinol has recently revealed its superpower of reducing the appearance of stretch marks – size, color, and texture. (Yep, AMAZING!)
Let's dive into how this miracle worker works!
What Is Retinol?
Retinol is a form of vitamin A found in many skincare products being branded the "golden standard in anti-aging," such as creams and serums.
(Do check out our Hue New Retinol Serum - click here).
It helps with wrinkles, acne scars, and age spots – and yes, it also helps reduce the appearance of stretch marks.
But How Exactly Does Retinol Work?
Retinol works by prompting your skin cells to divide more quickly than usual, creating new layers of skin cells faster than normal.
As these new layers build up, they can cover up any existing stretch marks or scars on your skin.
This process also encourages collagen production, which will smooth out any uneven texture caused by scarring or damage from sun exposure.
Additionally, retinol is powerful!
It can, when used consistently, help lighten the discoloration from stretch marks, so they blend in more seamlessly with your natural complexion.
Another great thing about using retinol for your stretch marks is that it doesn't just make them look better; it helps prevent new ones from forming.
How? Because the increased collagen production means better skin elasticity overall – so when there are sudden changes to your body shape due to rapid weight gain or pregnancy (or any other factor), there will be less likelihood of developing new stretch marks since your skin will be better able to cope with these changes.
So much so, we have a brand spanking new product about to drop called Bodycon - A retinol-based product to soothe your body and fade away those tale-tale signs of imperfections.
Trust me, once you start, you won't go back.
