Body Related Concerns
The body as a whole can tolerate products with a much higher active ingredient content specific to the concern that is the main body related concern. A range of concerns can be Cellulite, Scars, Stretch Marks, Spider Veins and darkened areas on the Body.
Minimizing Body Related Concerns
Cellulite is a condition that men and women often experience and is commonly found on the buttocks and thighs. It is visibly seen as a dimpled appearance created by fatty deposits under the skin due to poor circulation.
Although cellulite can affect both sexes, it is much more common in females. Factors that can contribute to the formation of cellulite are;
- Hormonal fluctuations
- Lifestyle factors

Spider Veins are visibly damaged blood capillaries commonly found on the lower limb region and face. They develop more frequently in women and the amount of spider veins can increase as we get older. Various factors can increase the chances of a person’s ability to have spider veins. These include;
- Occupations that involve a lot of standing
- Hormonal influences of pregnancy, puberty, and menopause
- The use of birth control pills
- A history of blood clots
- Trauma or injury to the skin
- Previous vein surgery
- Exposure to ultraviolet rays
- Temperature fluctuations
Skin care for Spider veins starts with the condition of your body as a whole. The condition of your microcirculation is of central importance, both in maintaining a state of high-level health, and in protecting your body from ageing and consequently sagging and flawed skin. The capillaries, very thin blood vessels, radiate throughout the body and make up the microcirculation. It is through these capillaries that nutrients and oxygen are carried via the bloodstream to the cells, organs, glands and tissues of the body, assisting to maintain healthy naturally beautiful skin.
Restore normal microcirculation and you can, in a very real way, offer the body rejuvenation at a cellular level. For most people, simply changing to a diet that is high in fresh raw foods and an adequate amount of vital protein for repair, and eliminating all highly processed and refined foods can enable the restoration.

Scars and Stretch Marks
Scar tissue can be improved with regular application of ingredients such as growth factors and stem cells being incorporated into topical products. Advanced Skin Resurfacing or MT Microneedling can be used to stimulate regeneration of the dermal fibroblast by signalling the release of growth factors which help in the process of wound healing and tissue repair. Significant results have been documented when a skin care routine is adhered to. New scars must only be worked on once there is clearance from the attending physician.
Stretch Marks are often the result of the stretching of the skin associated with rapid growth (common in puberty and pregnancy) or weight gain. Stretch Marks can appear anywhere on the body. Most common places are the abdomen, breasts, upper arms, underarms, thighs, hips, and buttocks.

Sunscreens containing UVA and UVB filters such as Zinc Oxide, Avobenzone and Titanium Dioxide protect and prevent against skin darkening as they are offer High Protection benefits when applied to the skin regularly.
The consumer finds skin lightening/hyperpigmentation and the correct choice of products to be most difficult. Hyperpigmentation may result from laser treatment protocols which could be applied too severely on darker skin types. Other factors can be from excessive heat, friction caused from tight clothing and exposure to hot ovens. Certain hormonal problems and medications could exacerbate the condition.
A treatment program selecting cleansers and gentle exfoliants which do not cause more friction, can be excellent together with the treatment protocol to produce results in as little as a month. Understanding the types of melanin, how it is formed and the causes of abnormal pigmentation is crucial for treatment success, as hyperpigmentation is a condition that depending on the cause will require a specific to combination approach to deliver results.
