Worried About Stretch Marks from Pregnancy or Puberty? Try It Works Stretch Mark Cream

Are you one of the lucky 1 in 10 women who managed to avoid stretch marks during pregnancy? Maybe you’re pregnant now and worried about developing stretch marks. If you’re like 90% of moms, chances are you still—or soon will—see those visual reminders of one of the most exciting times in a mother’s life every time you look in a mirror.

Mamas, Don’t Let Your Babies Grow Up and Get Stretch Marks!

But you don’t have to be a mom—or a woman—to have stretch marks; 70% of girls and 40% of boys will end up with puberty-related stretch marks. The most common places for stretch marks in women are the stomach, thighs and breasts, usually caused by pregnancy. Both men and women may also have them on their backs and upper arms, since it is not unusual for children to grow 17-18% of their final height during puberty.

Initially stretch marks appear as red or purple lines that may be slightly indented or have a different texture from the rest of the skin. Over time they fade, usually appearing as only slightly darker than your normal skin tone. Some may even disappear entirely. If this hasn’t been your experience, then you need It Works Stretch Mark Moisturizing Body Cream.

It Works Stretch Mark Moisturizing Cream contains natural products that hydrate your skin with essential oils and botanical moisturizers. As anyone who practices regular skin care knows, moist, hydrated skin looks more youthful, radiant, and healthier than dry, wrinkled skin. Also, pampered, hydrated skin anywhere on your body is less likely to be stressed from the effects of pregnancy or other reasons for rapid growth.

What Causes Stretch Marks?

Stretch marks are caused by a disruption of collagen production, which is what gives your skin its elasticity. This disruption can be caused by severe illness or injury, but more commonly is due to the normal hormonal changes that come during puberty and pregnancy. Anything that causes rapid growth can create them, including obesity and the extreme body changes that body builders experience. Stretch marks can also be a side effect of taking corticosteroids (anti-inflammatories) or of using steroid cream.

One study on herbal moisturizers found that people who used them daily showed significant improvement in skin appearance and elasticity. It Works Stretch Mark Cream contains essential oils plus vitamins and other nutrients that help treat and reduce the appearance of stretch marks, fine lines and scarring. Its ingredients include water, glycerin, aloe, Mimosa tree bark, marigold, licorice root, lavender oil, and many more nurturing, natural ingredients.

Unlike some prescription creams including retinoic acid (commonly called Retin-A) that can cause birth defects, It Works Stretch Mark Cream is all natural and can be used during pregnancy. Using It Works Stretch Mark Cream before and during pregnancy can help keep your skin hydrated and less likely to be damaged as your baby—and belly!–grows. It can also be applied on children before and during puberty to help their skin adjust to the rapid changes their bodies will experience. (As every pregnancy and child is different, we encourage you to consult your obstetrician or your child’s pediatrician first.)

Expect Realistic Results

While some customers have seen the appearance of stretch marks minimized in as little as 2 weeks, don’t expect overnight results. For most people it takes 1-3 months to see these annoying, perhaps even embarrassing, lines fade. So don’t wait until summer or AFTER you’ve delivered that precious bundle of joy!

Drink Your Veggies with It Works Greens

Drink Your Veggies with It Works Greens — All the Nutrients of 38 Cancer-Fighting Fruits and Vegetables

How Many Servings?

Nutritionists recommend 5-9 servings of fruits and vegetables per day. Seriously? I don’t know about you, but I’m doing well to grab a banana for breakfast and squeeze in a salad at some point during the day. I figure that brings me up to 3-4 servings, still well below what doctors say I should be eating for optimal health. I am well aware of the many benefits of eating fruits and vegetables: reduced risk of cancer, heart disease, diabetes, stroke. Plus they’re naturally low in calories, fat and sodium. But seriously, how does a busy mom find the time to consume up to 9 servings a day??

Enter It Works Greens!

It Works Greens is a natural alkalizing drink powder made of 38 different vegetables, fruits and herbs. Just one scoop meets the recommended dose, delivering 8 servings of nutritional fruits and veggies! Alkalizing means it helps your body naturally balance acidity with minerals like magnesium and potassium for a healthy pH balance to help fight free radicals and ward off illness and disease.

Drink Your Greens Instead of Coffee

It Works Greens has become my go-to beverage of choice every day, anytime of day. I love this stuff! Every morning I start my day with It Works Greens instead of coffee. It is so packed with energizing anti-oxidants I don’t even need the caffeine stimulant to get pumped and ready for the day. I like to add a scoop of Greens – Orange to a few ounces of orange juice mixed with sparkling water. (OJ is high in natural sugar, so the sparkling water not only adds pizazz, it helps cut the calories.) Then in the afternoon I’ll usually do the same thing with a scoop of Berry Greens so I can have a delicious, invigorating afternoon pick-me-up—a much healthier choice than a sugar-filled soda!

Add Greens to Smoothies

If you’re a smoothie junkie, It Works Greens is the perfect supplement and doesn’t give that tongue-coating after taste many off-the-shelf powders leave behind. Plus, it delivers a much wider variety of healthful cancer-fighting foods than most people will have on hand, including ingredients from apples, barley, brown rice, beets, broccoli, blackberry, blueberry, cranberry, kale, spinach, tomato, even okra!

There is so much research indicating the benefits of a diet high in fruits and vegetables because of all the vitamins, minerals and fiber they deliver. Since I have added It Works Greens to my daily diet, I have noticed I feel more energized throughout the day with no afternoon slump. But don’t enjoy a glass before bed! This natural immune booster is so packed with superior-quality vitamins and minerals the energizing effects will keep you awake. In fact, it is recommended not to consume Greens 3-4 hours before bedtime.

The Power of Probiotics

It Works Greens also contains powerful probiotics, including LactoSpore®. These are the healthy bacteria found in yogurt that your digestive system needs to fight off unhealthy bacteria that can cause digestive issues as well as disease, such as colon cancer. A healthy digestive tract is critical to help your body absorb and process nutrients while eliminating toxins and waste. Few, if any, other supplements on the market deliver this powerful combination of vitamins, minerals, fiber, probiotics, antioxidants and nutrients in one delicious scoop!

it works defining gelYou’re exercising to help your heart and lungs, detoxing for your liver and kidneys, but what are you doing for your body’s largest organ? Your skin also needs special care to continue looking great so you can continue feeling great.

It Works Defining Gel is a deeply penetrating skin care gel made of natural ingredients that hydrates the skin, reaching troublesome areas like your ‘muffin top,’ ‘bat wings,’ and ‘cottage cheese’ thighs. When used regularly, Defining Gel reduces the appearance of embarrassing cellulite and ugly varicose veins that can add years of age to your legs. Using It Works Defining Gel twice a day leaves your skin feeling and looking softer, firmer, hydrated and more toned.

  • Minimized cellulite appearance
  • Diminished appearance of varicose veins
  • Improved skin texture & tightness

Simply apply a dab of Defining Gel to the ‘fluffy’ area you want to target. Massage in a circular motion until it is absorbed, 5-10 minutes longer for maximum results. Defining Gel goes to work enhancing your skin’s natural regeneration process, smoothing bumps and ripples and restoring your skin’s elasticity and youthful glow.

You will see maximum results when you apply It Works! Defining Gel on the days between use of It works Ultimate Body Applicator, although they do not have to be used together to see results. Although you might be tempted to use Defining Gel on your face once you see the improvement in your legs, arms and abdomen, this product is not intended for delicate facial tissue. Please see our page of It Works facial products if you wish to minimize the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles around the eyes and lips.
