This is a guest post from Rebecca Stevens:
A few months ago I took a good, long look at my body. As the mother of two active toddlers, I often feel a little older than my 33 years, but I never thought I looked older. After getting out of the shower and going through my “nightly beauty routine,” I noticed I seemed to be covered in stretch marks. There were quite a few on my tummy and belly, from carrying my children, some on my arms and breasts, from a little weight gain, and some on my thighs, from, well, I am not sure why there are stretch marks on my thighs.
I made an appointment with my doctor, who told me the medical community refers to stretch marks as “striae” and that they are caused by pregnancy, growing taller, rapid weight gain or weight loss, and in some cases, genetics. She recommended an expensive cream and I immediately purchased her recommendation.
I used her recommended cream for over two weeks and saw no results. My stretch marks were not lighter nor were they disappearing. In fact, I was sure more had come to join the pack. Then, a friend told me she was using Intensive Concentrate Stretch Mark Cream. She told me this stretch mark cream was specially formulated with shea butter, Vitamins E and C, and that it contained professionally formulated collage repair systems as well as skin tighteners.
Intensive Concentrate Stretch Mark Cream not only lightens and reduces current stretch marks, it works to prevent new ones from appearing. In only 15 days, the special shea butter formulation causes the skin to feel softer and more supple. Intensive Concentrate Stretch Mark Cream provides 12-hour moisture, so it can be used during the day or at night while sleeping. Unlike other creams on the market, it does not have to be reapplied every two or four hours. Intensive Concentrate Stretch Mark Cream can be applied in the morning after a shower, while getting dressed, and then again at night before bed.
Intensive Concentrate Stretch Mark Cream is not just for women. Men often end up with stretch marks. Those who have grown taller or gained or lost weight can end up with stretch marks, but even those men who have always been physically fit may notice stretch marks that appear from lifting weights. My husband is often at the gym and on closer inspection, we noticed he had stretch marks hidden under his arms, radiating from his shoulders. Because Intensive Concentrate Stretch Mark Cream has no “girly” odor, my husband was willing to use it, especially when he noticed how my stretch marks were either fading or completely disappearing.
The first time I tried Intensive Concentrate Stretch Mark Cream, I decided to try it on the newer stretch marks. I had some that seemed almost purple in color as well as many that appeared to be a shimmery, silver color. The purple ones were so ugly, it was getting to the point where I was embarrassed to wear short sleeves. With bathing suit season approaching, I was considering hiding my tummy area in a one piece, but after looking at my upper thigh area, I was debating as to whether I even wanted to go to the pool or beach. I knew swimming and going to the beach were things my children enjoyed and things my family had always enjoyed together, so I needed to do something about these hideous stretch marks.
For three weeks I used Intensive Concentrate Stretch Mark Cream on all my stretch marks twice a day. I was expecting the Intensive Concentrate Stretch Mark Cream to be oily since it contains all the different vitamins and the shea butter, but instead it was very light. It almost had the consistency of very lightly whipped cream. I noticed within four days that some of my lighter stretch marks seemed to be gone. I thought I must be mistaken and put small Sharpie marks next to some of the lighter stretch marks. Three days later, they were gone. I got up the nerve to take a good long look at the deep purple ones and noticed they seemed to be lighter and not nearly as deep.
Every day for three weeks, I noticed old stretch marks becoming somewhat reduced, and newer ones lightning. Not only that, I noticed no new stretch marks at all. Even some scars I had on my arms were fading. That certainly grabbed my attention, so I began slathering the Intensive Concentrate Stretch Mark Cream on my body each morning and night. It never stained any of my clothing and it made my skin feel so soft. My husband told me my skin felt as if it were softer than the skin of my children. Intensive Concentrate Stretch Mark Cream is so affordable, I could use it on my legs and my feet without worrying about the cost. Scars I have had on my legs since childhood are lighter and much less noticeable and my feet feel soft and look pretty.
I have been impressed with Intensive Concentrate Stretch Mark Cream that I have been recommending it to everyone I see or know that has a problem with stretch marks. My sister and my mother are both using it now and they have noticed a huge difference in the amount of stretch marks on their body. My mother said for the first time in 30 years, she would be wearing a two-piece bathing suit this summer. I have already planned two vacations to the beach and have bought not one, but two bikinis, in addition to some cute sandals. I also plan to be sure I have plenty of Intensive Concentrate Stretch Mark Cream and that I pack it while on my vacations.
