Keeping that manly sex appeal with washboard abs can make all the difference in our love lives! Recent images of Taylor Lautner and Bradley Cooper remind us daily of what we all desire to have, and work to achieve.
Some of us need to hit the gym and lose 10 or 15 pounds in order to reveal those abdominal muscles we’ve been working to tone. But what happens if we have a few stretch marks around our belly and love handles? Nothing can be more frustrating than to lose a few pounds through diet and exercise only to have stretch marks from previous pounds tarnish your new look!
Despite all the infomercials on diet and exercise, there are no miracle machines or miracle diets that target weight loss only in your gut and love handles. Adhering to a balanced healthy intake of food and regular cardiovascular exercise can help in reducing your body fat content. A regular regimen of abdominal and oblique exercises (with or without weights, machines, gadgets & gizmos) will help you build, tighten and tone muscles. As always, before starting any new food or exercise plan see your doctor for advice.
Once you’re close to achieving those results you can use these products to help minimize the appearance of stretch marks (and not just on your belly and love handles!)
Belli Stretchmark Minimizing Cream is a healing skin reparative treatment specifically formulated to decrease the appearance of existing stretchmarks. Features darutoside and registril – ingredients shown in independent clinical trials to be effective on stretchmarks of any age or from any cause.
Hydroxatone Celtrixa Stretch Mark Lotion is another great choice. By infusing skin firming peptides, in association with soothing and anti-inflammatory agents, skin becomes thicker and more uniform.
Here’s a product review for the renowned StriVectin SD: “I bought this product in February 2009 for the first time and I am happy with it. My stretch marks are 15 years old and now they begin to disappear. My skin got firmer and thicker.”
Now that you’re all ripped out go show off your new look poolside!
