Skin Care, Stretch Marks and Moisturisers

Meow Pussy Cats

If you have a problem with Stretch marks then unfortunately there is really nothing you can do once you have got them. Stretch marks are a sign of your skin’s inability to cope with the rapid expansion of flesh underneath.  They usually make an appearance in times of rapid weight gain, puberty and pregnancy. The collagen and elastin fibres underneath actually tear with the sheer strain of it all. when they first appear they are quite red and in time they fade away to an almost unnoticeable silvery shade.

All you can do is keep your skin well moisturised this will help guard against them. Try to apply body lotion after your shower or bath and just give it plenty of time to sink in before dressing.

Another trick is a fake tan this can be a good disguise for stretch marks that might be on view.

A few of my favourites is Palmer’s Cocoa Butter after a shower or bath, smooth’s and firms while it absorbs into the skin.  Palmer’s also do a  creamy cocoa butter soap for marks and blemishes, which softens rough, dry skin.

Palmer’s Cocoa Butter Formula is a rich-lathering soap that softens and moisturises.  Enriched with pure Cocoa Butter and Vitamin E, it is specially formulated to cleanse, without leaving a dry, tight feeling. Use Palmer’s Cocoa Butter Formula Cream Soap daily for a smooth, clear, radiant complexion.  Excellent for use on face, hands and body.

Skin So soft dry skin oil. Especially if you are in a hurry and don’t have the time.

Dove  Summer Glow beauty body lotion. Its a really good moisturiser with a hint of tanning agents, which gradually builds up a light tan. Once you put it on just give it time to absorb into your skin before you get dressed.

Sally Hansen Airbrush legs. Spray on in an instant.

Hot Winter Tips for a healthier 2011

Meow Pussy Cats

1)    Inactivity is a major cause of cellulite so walk more. There are so many boots and shoes that have been proven to burn four times more body fat than the normal conventional foot wear. Ranging from Earth Pride, Sketchers, and many more.

2)    Eat healthy, so eat plenty of oily fish such as mackerel, sardines, trout, halibut and salmon. The Highly unsaturated omega 3 fat found in oily fish has been proven to help reduce body fat in humans.

3)   If you like a little drink then swap the booze for low-calorie drinks or non alcoholic drinks .

4)   If you have your five a day then swap the banana, pineapple, mango, grapes and dates for berries such as strawberries. blackberries etc.

5)   Try and do a few squats and lunges. Squats can be hard so go down as far as you can go and just push your self a little to further next time.

6)   Cold showers and baths are not just good for all them sports guys. By contrasting showers from hot to cold you will rejuvenate an immediate boost circulation and lymph drainage.

7)   Light jogging or even running is good fun if you do it in intervals rather than continuous running or jogging.  This helps to stimulate your cellulite tissues. Boosts your metabolism and burns fat.

8)   Eating a lot of sugar is the number one cause of cellulite. It may cause things such as skin ageing and inflammation. Try sugar-free chocolate from Harrods

9)   Massage is good, so don’t be shy massage your thighs and bum for ten minutes every day. All you need is a small amount of cream and massage vigorously in a kneading action. Palmers Cocoa butter cream is really good.

10)    The best time to eat carbs such brown rice, pasta , hard-boiled potatoes etc is immediately after exercise. That is the only time carbs will end up in your muscles instead of your bottom.
