As we mentioned previously, that suit of yours won’t stretch indefinitely. If you stretch it too much, it might get some reddish or purplish ladders. So, how do you get them to fade over time? That’s not an easy task, because those tiny scars can be quite stubborn, and we might say trying to prevent them in the first place is the best solution of all. But once they are there, there are some things you can do to fight them, or at least reduce their appearance.
There is nothing wrong with being soft. Treating your skin with a special moisturizer or a body lotion for men once or twice a day is going to keep your skin-suit nicely hydrated and snug for many summers to come.
Your skin loves vitamins (especially antioxidants such as vitamin A and E) and so should you. So, before summer is over, make sure to not only load weights on your barbell but fruits and vegetables on your plate, too.
The upper layer of your skin constantly renews itself. Regularly peeling off dead skin cells boosts the production of new ones, which helps to keep your skin flexible.
Lemons are considered to be a good home remedy for curing stretch marks. Lime juice is said to stimulate collagen production (important, remember?), exfoliate the skin, promote the growth of new skin cells and blood vessels and may even lighten stretch marks.
Stretch marks have patience, and so should you. Once they are there, it will take time to get rid of them. Some may even stay with you forever. But let’s be honest: They are not the end of the world. Actually, they are not even the end of the summer. So get out there and splash!
