I have asked three people
though as is not enough evidence that this may be a good or a bad
idea. I am helpless as well as clueless that I have come asking you guys to
please tell me who came up with this. Well, I also have researched this many times over,
and there seems to be not even one correlation between loose skins/ stretch
marks and body lotions.
I love me, and I am unashamedly going to show you a picture of my "after-bath routine"; I love to caress those breasts when applying lotion. I like to do that myself again another reason I enjoy applying lotion in the mornings and at nights. My mom got me scared as hell when she told me that applying lotion on my breasts, tummy and thighs could potentially make them lose their elasticity. Ela- what?
I ain't finna let that happen (In my Alabaman voice). I cannot imagine them losing their elasticity, which
pushed me to the internet to find answers. Oh, and by the way, I didn’t tell ya
that you can be privy to information online, and on various subjects too....Hmm,
ever heard of the saying that goes thus “Yanga
dey sleep, trouble go wake am.? I was of course looking for lasting
solutions to the damage I may have caused my skin from everyday lotion application
when I stumbled upon this one that puts everything into perspective. “Stretch
marks cannot be virtually removed fully without surgical procedures.. and you shouldn’t
even think of spending tens of thousands of dollars for a tummy tuck because
weight gain might cause newer ones to resurface. This right here is one cold hard truth. What I thought I have
been doing since was to rid the lines formed in my dermis and the only way I thought I could possibly be doing so was by applying lotion to make my skin firmer or
tighter if you will.
In essence, there was no
one article on why you shouldn’t lotion caress your tits, tummy or even
thighs when you are applying your lotion as newer marks might appear whether from a dermis which is by virtue of being pregnant (and odds, are you will get them too especially by genetics) or by weight gain. You might just want to check in with your dermatologist to be sure of the properties/content of your lotion, as a preventive method against skin cancer. I could even sense that some of
you rub your tummy in a circular motion while saying those silent prayers hoping to show off a baby bump soon. I know right.. That in itself is not wrong. Please if that makes you tick,
please go for it, while I keep at mine too. Lol
Have a fantastic Friday!
