A case of over exfoliation July 01 2014, 0 Comments

I received this message a little while ago. There were 2 questions in the message I will address the other question in a different blog post. Here is the part about exfoliation:

"Hi Jean, I've been using medical grade crystals to exfoliate for over six months, daily hard core exfoliating massage with these crystals. They have not worked on my stretch marks. Do you think your system will even be strong enough if the medical crystals did not work? I just got your system yesterday and did my first session, I have not seen any difference. "

It is no wonder this practice did not work on the stretch marks. It is never a good thing for skin to be forcefully exfoliate everyday, even with a mild exfoliator, let alone for 6 straight months with medical grade exfoliator. When trying to cure stretch marks with exfoliation, it is not a matter of how strong the exfoliator is or how deep and hard you exfoliate, It is a matter of how to help skin optimize it's own ability to regenerate and to heal, and in the process making skin healthier and stronger. Over exfoliation actually weakens the skin and inhibits the normal process of skin regeneration and build up.

As I indicated in the application manual for my massage remedy: never ever exfoliate everyday, don't over exfoliate or under exfoliate either. Apply the massage as suggested, give just the right amount of exfoliation and stimulation, together with the powerful Verity stretch marks cream,  help skin do its own good work. Average speaking a person can expect to see noticeable improvement after only 2-3 sessions.


What to do if your stretch marks were caused by birth control pills/shots June 26 2014, 0 Comments

I get this question a lot.

Many women were shocked after they realized that their birth control methods might have been the direct cause for their developing stretch marks. In a panic they wanted to abruptly change or stop using their contraception choices, hoping to by doing that they will be able to stop new stretch marks from developing. This, however, may do just the opposite. 

As we have discussed in the "common causes of stretch marks" page, stretch marks are almost always caused by hormonal problems. In order to prevent pregnancy common birth control pills/shots inevitably change the body's hormonal activities. Every woman's body react to these changes differently. Unfortunately some developed stretch marks because of it. As I have mentioned on the website, for women who are already genetically susceptible to developing stretch marks, these sudden hormonal changes to the body might trigger this problem. 

In that regard it is not a good idea to abruptly change or stop your current birth control pills/shots, because by doing that the body is put through yet another sudden change or shock, which might in turn cause even more stretch marks. In addition to stretch marks, there may be other problems such as acne, weight gain, mood swing etc.

So my suggestion is that you should never abruptly stop or change your contraception methods on your own. Instead, stay with it for the time being, do a lots of research and consult your doctor for options.
