Body Lotion For Stretch Marks & Skin Repair

“It's a new dawn, it’s a new day, it’s a new life… and I’m feeling good.” These lyrics were written by Nina Simone as an ‘anthem of liberation’. It expressed a particular kind of euphoria: that which comes with freedom from oppression.

Just as music has the power to make us feel good, Dawn’s Repairing Body Lotion with Vitamin E and Argan Oil will make your skin feel good. In fact, if your skin could sing, it would be belting out those lyrics to Nina Simone’s song.

Put The Moisture Back Into Your Skin

“As soon as you get out of the shower, moisture starts getting pulled out of the skin from contact with air,” says Annie Chiu, MD, a celebrity dermatologist in Manhattan Beach. She recommends applying your body lotion within 5 minutes of your shower to lock in your skin's natural moisture. So, be sure to keep your bottle of Dawn Repairing Body Lotion close. The argan oil extracts contain beneficial properties and vitamins that form a powerful combination to boost skin health. It will leave your skin feeling soft, supple and luxuriously moisturised.

The Benefits of Argan Oil For Skin

Argan oil is an extremely rare oil and often referred to as ‘Liquid Gold’. Did you know that it takes 30kg of Argan fruit and about 24 hours to produce just 1 litre? Here are a few of its benefits.

  • ● It protects the skin from sun damage
    Have you ever noticed how beautiful Moroccan women’s skin is? Argan oil is made from the kernels that grow on the argan trees native to their country. Moroccan women have long used argan oil to protect their skin from sun damage. A 2013 study found that the antioxidant activity in argan oil helped protect the skin against free radical damage caused by the sun.
  • ● It moisturises the skin
    Argan oil is commonly used as a moisturiser. This is largely thanks to its abundance of vitamin E, which is a fat-soluble antioxidant that can help improve water retention in the skin.
  • ● It treats a number of skin conditions
    Argan oil’s antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties can help to soothe skin conditions such as eczema and psoriasis. Due to its high content of vitamin E, it can also help heal rashes and dry flaky skin.
  • ● It has Anti-ageing effects
    Who doesn’t want youthful looking skin? Argan oil has long been used as an anti-ageing treatment. In a recent study with post-menopausal participants researchers found that a combination of oral and cosmetic argan oil led to a significant increase in the skin’s ability to remain supple. So go ahead and reap the benefits of Dawn Body Lotion to give your skin all those anti-ageing benefits.
  • ● It’s not just for women
    Argan oil works wonders on men too! They can use it to treat shaving rashes and cuts. It can even be used to moisturise men’s beards.

 

The Benefits Of Argan Oil For Skin

Argan oil also helps to reduce the appearance of those dreaded stretch marks. Millions of women (and men) develop stretch marks. We often think of stretch marks as something that affect women more than men. This is not true: men can, and do, get stretch marks.

Although our skin is incredibly flexible, it reaches a point where it can no longer stretch without causing the scarring that we call stretch marks. Although stretch marks aren’t harmful, they may look unpleasing to some of us. Remember not to try and disguise your stretch marks by tanning your skin – this often increases their appearance! Use Dawn Body Lotion with Vitamin E and Argan Oil to help to reduce their appearance.

The causes of stretch marks for both men and women are not all that different. They can be caused by conditions such as:

  • ● Pregnancy and its fluctuating hormone levels.

Many women deal with stretch marks when they’re pregnant. Applying pure argan oil onto the skin during pregnancy is safe because it is organic. So, go ahead and gently massage your baby bump with organic argan oil.

  • ● Rapid growth during puberty can leave horizontal stretch marks on the upper arms, thighs, buttocks and even back.
  • ● Rapid weight gain, in which the accumulation of fat causes vertical stretch marks on the stomach.
  • ● Bodybuilding, in which the growth of muscle causes stretch marks along the muscles at the outer edge of the chest or shoulder muscle.
