Ways to Prevent Stretch Marks on Your Butt

Stretch marks can appear basically anywhere on the body, but particularly on areas of the skin that have been stretched out, especially over a short period of time. They often occur due to pregnancy and sudden weight gain. Often times stretch marks will form on the thighs, hips, butt, breasts, and stomach—it just depends on whether there was growth or weight gain. No one wants stretch marks basically anywhere, but there are certain things you can do to prevent them from appearing on parts of the body like the buttocks. When they are on the butt they can be hard to hide especially if you happen to be wearing a swimming suit.

The best way to deal with stretch marks is just to avoid getting them. If you are pregnant, working out, or quickly gaining weight, stretch marks could appear anywhere, including on the butt. Hydrate the areas you are worried about with deep moisturizing creams that will help to prepare your skin. Making sure your skin is elastic is important in avoiding stretch marks, and this can be done by keeping it hydrated. You can also keep your skin hydrated by drinking plenty of water every day, which can also improve elasticity.

You can also eat food that is rich in vitamins and minerals like silica, zinc, Vitamin C, and Vitamin E, all of which help the body to form collagen. Vitamins B3 and B2 are good for the skin and help it stay healthy. If possible eat a diet that is healthy and balanced and avoid suddenly gaining weight. Exercise can help you to avoid stretch marks on the butt because it promotes elasticity and circulation, helping to prepare your skin.

If you take all the preventative action that you can but you still end up with stretch marks on your butt, there are some things you can do to help reduce their appearance. If possible it is better to try and start taking action while the marks are still pinkish, which means they are relatively new. They are technically scars so they are impossible to entirely eliminate.

There are plenty of creams which reduce the appearance of stretch marks, but do a little research especially, before you invest a lot of money in a product. You can get rid of stretch marks on your butt with Aloe Vera. Mix 1 cup of Aloe Vera with lemon, 2 teaspoons of essential oil, and 2 teaspoons of honey, then apply to the buttocks and leave it there for half an hour before rinsing. This can be repeated several times a week. If you are trying to remove stretch marks from your butt naturally another good substance to try is rosehip oil. All you have to do is rub the oil into your hands and then rub it onto the affected location. Eating the right vitamins and minerals, like those mentioned above, and exercising can also help to restore the skin on your butt back to its normal vitality. You may just have to try and mask the stretch marks on your butt. You can do this by finding swimwear which will conceal the area in question.
