If you're pregnant, you'll want to invest in a good stretch mark striae cream. However, pregnant women aren't the only people who need to concern themselves with preventing stretch marks. People often incur stretch marks from weight gain, from muscle gain due to body building, or from body changes brought on by puberty.

Effective Stretch Mark Striae Cream

Too many pregnant women rely on plain old cocoa butter for striae prevention. This age old home remedy for stretch marks simply does not work as effectively as today's more advanced stretch mark striae creams. The most effective stretch mark striae creams available today are not mere moisturizers, but scientifically proven elastin creams.

Elastin is a protein which occurs naturally in the skin. As the name indicates, elastin provides skin with its elasticity. Collagen is another protein found in the skin. You may have heard of collagen because of its use in cosmetic surgery. Collagen is the building block of skin.

If your skin has plenty of collagen and elastin, it can stretch to amazing extremes, without tearing. Unfortunately, most adult women don't have high enough levels of these important proteins to prevent tears in the skin during pregnancy. By rubbing a cream of elastin and collagen into the skin during pregnancy, you supply your skin with the increased levels of protein it needs to meet the challenge of your changing shape.
