Grape Seed Extract

Grape seed extract plant extract bio-flavonoid that is widely considered the most powerful known to man with research showing it to be 20 times more potent than Vitamin C and 50 times more powerful than Vitamin E. Fights Green Vein, scars,heals and helps with other health problems including skin whitening

Skin Protection

Antioxidants protect cells from unstable molecules that can cause damage to healthy cells on the skin and in the body, according to the National Cancer Institute. Two of the most famous antioxidants are vitamins E and C. Grape seed extract contains several plant compounds, including oligomeric proanthocyanidins, or OPCs. OPCs are powerful antioxidants, and according to a report from the Food Research Center in Guelph, Canada, OPCs in grape seed extract contain 20 times the antioxidant power of vitamin E and 50 times the antioxidant power of vitamin C. The report, published in the Winter 2003 issue of “Journal of Medicinal Food,” states that grape seed extract can protect the body from sun damage. The sun can damage skin by causing wrinkles, pigment changes and skin cancer.

Improves Skin Appearance

Protecting the skin from sun damage will maintain, or improve, the overall appearance of the skin. Researchers in the “Journal of Medicinal Food” claim that grape seed extract benefits the skin’s appearance by bonding with collagen, which is the building block of healthy skin, to maintain skin cell health in addition to the skin’s elasticity. The antioxidant power of the OPCs in grape seed extract is credited for these benefits as well.

A paper from Vanderbilt University in Tennessee explains the process by which antioxidants, or OPCs, protect and improve skin appearance. Free radicals, which are molecules that damage healthy cells, have an unpaired electron. To make up for this empty slot, the free radical will try to steal an electron from healthy protein in the skin. When this happens it sets off a chain reaction because the healthy cell that was stolen from is now a damaged cell and looks to steal an electron from another cell. What this leaves behind is a chain of damaged molecules, and the skin’s cellular structure is now weakened. The antioxidant power of grape seed extract fights the free radicals and protects the skin from damage. Free radicals can develop as a result of sun damage, pollution, cigarette smoke and even stress.

Chloasma Treatment

Chloasma, also known as melasma, is a condition in which the pigmentation of the facial skin appears brown and blotchy. Chloasma can develop as a result of hormonal fluctuation, sun exposure, a toxic reaction to cosmetics or for no known reason at all, according to the New Zealand Dermatological Society. Regardless of the cause, chloasma can cause embarrassment if you are suffering from it. Medical treatment for chloasma can involve painful dermabrasions or costly and toxic medications. However, grape seed extract has also been found to treat chloasma, and it is a natural, safe alternative. A study published in the November 2004 issue of “Phytotherapy Research” showed that after six months of treatment with oral grape seed extract, chloasma significantly improved.

Stretch Marks

Stretch marks are narrow streaks or lines that occur on the surface of the skin.

Doctors often refer to stretch marks as stria, striae or – during pregnancy – striae gravidarum.

Stretch marks are often red or purple to start with, before gradually fading to a silvery-white colour. They’re usually long and thin.

Where stretch marks occur

Stretch marks can occur anywhere where the skin has been stretched, but they usually affect areas where fat is stored, such as the:

  • tummy (abdomen)
  • breasts
  • upper arms
  • buttocks
  • thighs
  • shoulders (in bodybuilders)

Sometimes, particularly in teenage boys, stretch marks can develop on the back, overlying the spine horizontally (like the rungs on a ladder).

When stretch marks occur

Stretch marks often occur:

  • during pregnancy
  • after rapid weight gain
  • during puberty
  • if you have a family history of stretch marks
  • if you have an underlying health condition or a syndrome, such as Cushing’s syndrome or Marfan syndrome
  • after the prolonged or inappropriate use of corticosteroid medication

These are discussed in more detail below.

Pregnancy

Stretch marks often occur during the later stages of pregnancy, affecting about 8 out of 10 pregnant women. Whether or not you’ll get stretch marks depends on your skin type and how elastic it is.

During pregnancy, hormones are produced that soften the ligaments in your pelvis so they’re more flexible when you give birth. Ligaments are strong bands of tissue that connect joints. However, the hormones also soften the fibres in your skin, making it prone to stretch marks.

As your baby grows and your skin stretches, you may get stretch marks on your tummy. You may also develop them on your thighs and breasts as they get bigger.

Stretch marks usually fade and become less noticeable after childbirth, but they don’t always disappear completely.

Rapid weight gain

You may get stretch marks if you put on a lot of weight over a short period of time. They sometimes remain even after losing weight, but should eventually fade.

Regular dieting can cause stretch marks as your weight goes up and down. If you need to lose weight, lose it slowly and steadily so that your skin isn’t put under strain. Read more about how to lose weight safely.

Bodybuilders and athletes can also get stretch marks as their muscles increase in size.

Puberty

During puberty, the body often develops very quickly in growth spurts.

Boys may get stretch marks on their shoulders and back, and girls may get them on their hips, thighs and breasts.

Family history

If you have a close relative with stretch marks, such as your mother, you’re more likely to develop them yourself.

Although stretch marks can affect both male and female family members, they’re more common in women.

Underlying health conditions

Stretch marks can sometimes be related to rare conditions or syndromes, such as Cushing’s syndrome and Marfan syndrome.

Cushing’s syndrome occurs when the body overproduces the hormone cortisol, which is thought to cause stretch marks.

Marfan syndrome is caused by a faulty gene that weakens the body’s skin and connective tissues, reducing their elasticity (ability to stretch). This means the skin isn’t as resistant to stretch marks as it should be.

In Marfan syndrome, stretch marks can occur on the shoulders, hips and lower back.

Corticosteroids

In rare cases, stretch marks can develop after prolonged or inappropriate use of corticosteroids, such as creams or lotions used to treat skin conditions, including eczema.

Corticosteroids work in a similar way to the hormone cortisol. They can help ease inflammatory skin conditions but, like cortisol, they can also reduce the amount of collagen in your skin.

Collagen is a protein that helps keep your skin stretchy. The less collagen there is in your skin, the more likely you are to develop stretch marks.

When using a corticosteroid cream or lotion, follow the manufacturer’s instructions about how and where to apply it. The face, groin and armpits are particularly sensitive areas. Ask your GP or pharmacist for advice if you’re unsure.

How stretch marks develop

Before stretch marks appear, the affected skin will become thin, flattened and pink, and may feel itchy.

The stretch marks themselves appear as red or purple streaks or lines, but can be pink, reddish-brown or dark brown, depending on your skin colour.

They can occur in patches of parallel lines on your body and often appear “scar-like”. To start with, the lines will be slightly raised and may feel wrinkly, before eventually flattening out.

As the lines become flatter, they’ll start to fade and change to a white or silvery colour. They’ll usually become less noticeable over time, although this process can sometimes take years.

What causes stretch marks?

Steroids based creams

Stretch marks are caused when the skin rapidly stretches as a result of sudden growth or weight gain.

The stretching causes the middle layer of skin (dermis) to tear, allowing the deeper skin layers to show through, forming stretch marks.

The dermis contains strong, inter-connected fibres that allow your skin to stretch as your body grows. However, rapid growth can cause the skin to over-stretch and break the fibres.

The tears in the dermis allow the blood vessels below to show through, which is why stretch marks are often red or purple when they first appear.

When the blood vessels eventually contract (get smaller), the pale-coloured fat underneath your skin will be visible, and your stretch marks will change to a silvery-white colour.

How To Treat stretch marks

Most stretch marks aren’t particularly noticeable and will fade over time. Treatment requires patience.

If you have unsightly stretch marks, or if they affect a large area of your body, there are a few treatment options available. However, there isn’t much evidence to show that these treatments work.

Regular exfoliation with our coffee scrub. ( Use 3 times a week for best results combine with our stretch mark cream or oil )

Our stretch mark cream ( rub on skin 1-2 times aday results from 6 weeks of use)

Argan oil ( rub on skin 3-5 times aday results from 3 months of use.)
