Stretch marks are generally caused through rapid weight loss or gain. Stretch marks generally appear when the collagen structure of the skin is damaged. Increasing the intake of collagen can assist with replacing lost and damaged collagen in the skin whilst at the same time contributing to skin elasticity.
Glutathione is an antioxidant naturally found in human cells. It neutralises free radicals, boosts the immune system and detoxifies the body. It also contributes to the lightening and firming of the skin. As a skin lightening agent, studies have shown that glutathione yielded other cosmetic benefits as it lightens and forms the skin.
Collagen taken in combination with glutathione will help replace lost collagen from within and lighten the skin on the surface thus reducing the appearance of stretch marks .
It is important to remember that stretch marks, once formed are almost impossible to eradicate entirely. However, the intake of collagen and use of glutathione in combination, can reduce the appearance of stretch marks over time.
