Travis Stork: Stretch marks, so very common Drew. Andrew Ordon: Such a common problem. You know, anywherefrom 70 to 90 percent of all women have stretch marks. And what are theyé Let me show youexactly. They're scars in the dermis and epidermis caused by a tearing or stretchingof the dermal components. What that does, you lose elastin, you lose collagen, and ittranslates to those scars that you actually see on the surface. Early on, they're red.Those can be treated with a different type
of laser. Today though, we're focusing onthose old stretch marks that have been there for months or years and in her case, afterpregnancy, the two areas where women see it the most, the tummy, the breast, sometimeson the hips as well.

Tips to Get Rid of Cellulite
Hey guys, Axe here, of naturalmedicine and founder of DrAxe . Today I'm going to share with you my top four tips onhow to get rid of cellulite very, very quickly. Cellulite is something that so many people,women especially, struggle with today. About 90% of women may struggle with cellulite intheir life whereas about 10% to 20% of men will struggle with cellulite in their life. There are actually definite causes of cellulitebuildup and ways you can reduce those in as little as a couple of days. The first thingyou've got to realize if you have cellulite is that you have weak collagen structure.So your tissue cells are weak. In order to
build those up and strengthen them up, youneed specific types of amino acids. Many women today are deficient in amino acids, especiallythose who are vegan and who don't get enough protein in their diet. The top amino acids that really support gettingrid of cellulite are going to be proline and glycine or collagen. In collagen, those aminoacids that make up collagen are the most important for that healthy cell structure. The ideal superfood for getting rid of celluliteis bone broth. Bone broth which is what makes up chicken soup or beef stew. It's been usedfor thousands of years, and by the way, not
the sort of soup or broth you think of thatyou pick up maybe in a carton at your grocery store. I'm talking about the real deal, puttingbones in a slow cooker or crock pot and allowing those bones to release those minerals as wellas those amino acids in the liquid. Now, you can sometimes get a good bone broth. You canorder them from websites like Wise Choice Market. It is where I personally order bonebroth when I get it. But real bone broth, the number one thing you can do, those aminoacids, proline and glycine, help build that strong cell structure. Think about this: Your skin produces collagen.As you age, you have less collagen so your
skin starts to sag. Well, it's the same thingwith cellulite. You get that dimpled skin. Well, it's weakened, it's less collagen. You'vegot to build up collagen. Amino acids are the number one way. Also vitamin C rich foodshelp with that as well. Vitamin C rich foods like kiwis, tomatoes, also bell peppers, lemons,limes, and grapefruit. These are fantastic foods. Broccoli is packed with vitamin C.More vitamin C, more of those amino acids are really going to help with collagen production,as well as foods that are high in sulfur, such as onions, garlic, cabbage as well asasparagus and then sea vegetables like spirulina. All of those will help.
The next set of things that you want to dois you want to consume foods rich in potassium. Part of what causes cellulite to show up isthe imbalance of sodium and potassium. Sodium causes your body to hold water. Potassiumcauses your body to flush water. So if you load up on those potassium rich foods anddecrease the amount of sodium you're using, it's going to naturally reduce cellulite appearance.I would go online to my website, DrAxe , that's DrAxe , and look up potassium richfoods, and you'll find my list of foods on the best foods that are high in potassium,and those are the foods you want to add in your diet. Some of those foods may includebananas, sweet potatoes, mangoes, and kiwis,
also certain type of vegetables high in potassium,like parsley and cilantro, but loading up on those foods. Also, even goat's milk, yogurt.Those things are very, very high in potassium and will help decrease cellulite naturallyand fast. Another thing you want to be getting is healthyfatty acids to reduce cellulite, specifically Omega3 fats. This is also important for celland tissue structure. Wildcaught salmon is the ideal form of meat or any wildcaughtfish to start to get rid of that excess cellulite. So start adding in honey glazed salmon. I'vegot recipes for that on DrAxe as well. But getting those Omega3 fats and you mayeven want to take a fish oil as well, and
DIY Frank Body Coffee Scrub
What's up everyoneé Zerina here, and today I'm gonna be showing you how you can make your own miracleworking coffee scrub! Now, coffee is practically one of nature'sleast irritable exfoliants. Because it's a diuretic, it's going todraw fluid away from your fat cells. And this means that it's going to tighten your skin, and make the appearance of cellulite less obvious. You can use and type of sugar in yourscrub, but it's best if you have raw sugar
for an added exfoliant. Cocoa powder has the same antioxidantand moisturizing properties as the oils that we're going to use,but I added it in to make the scent of coffee more subtle. Feel free to use just coconut oil, butsince it clogs my pores, I decided to go for something else. All the oils I'm using are primarilly meant to moisturize, but argan oil and jojobaoil are great acne treatments, and they also help with razor bumps.
So once you have all your ingredients,grab a mixing bowl and begin pouring in all your dry ingredients first. So here I'm dumping in the coffee and then I'm going to add a bit less sugar than I did coffee. Mix in between each ingredient so youcan make sure that everything is perfectly combined together. Next, I'm adding in my cocoa powder. And, I forgot to put all the *measurements* in the tutorial, because I pretty much eyeballed this.
But I'll make sure to include themin the description so if you're interested in recreating theexact thing that I am doing then you can check down there. In goesthe Argan Oil and it's time to mix it up again. Now, the reason that I did include olive oil in this is because it's the cheapest of all of the oils and I'm using
the biggest amount of olive oil, just to save money, I guess. Take your time mixing and make surethat everything is the exact consistency that you want, and if it's not, you can always goback and add more of whatever you need. I'm using 5 of these little jojoba oil ampules And, my God, this stuff smells amazing!Now's a good time to do that consistency check and here you can see, kind of, what mine looks like.
it might not look moist enough, butobviously when you're in your shower and your skin is wet, it's going to workout great. This is totally optional, but I wentahead and added some mint aroma just to freshen up the scent a littlebit. And now that we're done mixing ourhearts out, it's time to transfer this into a container, or jar, or whatever thatyou can close and pop into your shower. Voila! Your scrub is done, and if youdecide
