Coconut Oil Stretch Marks: Relieve and Prevent Skin Scarring
Use coconut oil for stretch marks to avoid ugly scarring. Coconut oil accelerates healing of all types of skin injuries and safely prevents scarring far better than commercial creams, lotions, etc.
Coconut oil can quickly nourish your body at the cellular level. Its Medium Chain Fatty Acids (MCFA) are an efficient source of food for your cells, including skin cells.
Massaging the oil into affected areas will speed up your skin’s recovery.
Stretch marks or “striae” are a form of skin scarring. When the skin rapidly stretches, the dermis tears up, resulting to scars with an off-color hue.
Rapid growth which is common in puberty, and weight gain due to pregnancy or muscle building, are the common and well-known causes of stretch marks.
But why wait for the injuries to already set in when you can safely and naturally stop it from happening in the first place? If coconut oil is applied before the marks occur, healing will be significantly quicker.
My cousin is a nurse and has become quite an expert in stretch mark treatment. The women living in big cities here in the Philippines who listen to her advice to massage coconut oil into their abdomens during and after pregnancy don’t develop a problem with stretch marks.
Most expectant mothers in the provinces don’t have to be reminded of this. Tradition has made them aware of the benefits of using coconut oil for stretch marks.
As they beef up, bodybuilders can develop empty and soft to the touch areas on their skin. I know this fact all too well.
By using coconut oil externally and internally, bodybuilders have an excellent chance of dodging stretch marks. I have been lifting weights to build muscle for years and I never experienced such skin damage.
Rapid skin stretching may be the obvious cause, but it’s not the only one. Hormonal changes connected with puberty may also influence the progression of stretch marks. Again, coconut oil may be of great assistance.
Hormones act as a catalyst for other chemical changes at the cellular level necessary for growth and development. Simply put, when hormones go haywire, life can be difficult.
Coconut oil affects the root cause of many health problems, probably because it can also beneficially affect hormones.
People with low thyroid function (hypothyroidism) who consume coconut oil are able to rev up their metabolism. Yet those who have a very high metabolic rate (hyperthyroidism) don’t experience any boost in thyroid activity. Coconut oil apparently can help make your hormonal system go in its proper balance.
