The other day I celebrated my 44th birthday. Yes, 44. Most of the time, I don’t feel 44 because I exercise regularly and try to make healthy food choices. Some people say that I don’t look 44 but that’s because they see me when my makeup is finished, my hair is styled (and colored) and everything unsightly is covered up. From a young age, I knew that I would probably have some curvature to my figure because that is a common characteristic on both sides of my family. Unfortunately, I developed fast and have been graced with unwelcome stretch marks since puberty.
Okay, that’s not really fair. I’m sure that some of those original stretch marks faded and were replaced with new ones from years of up and down weight change. Regardless of how I acquired them, my body has more than its share of glistening lines.
As for the weight change, I spent more than a few years at a BMI (body mass index) classified as obese based on my height. Little did I know that it would leave me with varicose and spider veins. When I look at my legs, I feel like they belong to an 80 year old. I have a Remington I-Light Pro that is difficult to use in those areas because they are so tender.
While cosmetic treatments are available for my ailments, until I’m at my goal weight I don’t want to consider anything like that. I have friends who are into homeopathy and swear by healing natural oils so I decided to give those a shot.
I’m a rookie to this type of product so I wasn’t sure how to use them or what to expect. When they arrived, I read the instructions on how to apply them and how often. For the first several uses, I struggled to get the oil out of the bottle! H-Stretch Marks Formula was clear with a fragrance that reminds me of a visit to the spa while the H-Varicose Veins had a blue hue to it and smelled like a visit to the farmer’s market.
After regularly using the oils for a few weeks, I noticed a few things. The aromas stay with you like a perfume but I found them to be soothing and comforting. While the appearance of the varicose veins didn’t change dramatically, I didn’t expect them to since I had just started using them. However, just a few days ago, I used my Remington I-Light Pro and for the first time, didn’t experience any discomfort in those areas. That leads me to believe that Healing Natural Oils for Varicose Veins DOES have positive effects. I’m sure with long-term use of it, I’ll see even more improvement. With the Stretch Marks Formula, I applied it to one hip but not the other in addition to on my abdomen. By comparing my hips, I noticed degradation of the “glistening” that accompanies stretch marks. Once again, longer term usage will likely yield better results.
Despite this being my first time using natural oils, it won’t be my last.
