How to relieve pregnancy itching

June 22, 2018

Dry, itchy skin can drive you crazy when you're in the late stages of pregnancy. If your baby bump feels tight and uncomfortable you can alleviate the itch with a skin-conditioning moisturiser, like Mama's Everything Body Balm.

A gorgeously luxurious blend of Shea Butter and natural oils, this rich balm soaks deep into the skin, leaving it feeling soft, supple and smooth. Simply reapply as soon as you feel that tell tale itch across your tummy, thighs and breasts to eliminate discomfort and strenghten your skin. Better yet, because Mama's Everything Body Balm can be used over the entire body you can even rub it onto puffy, swollen ankles, chapped lips, dry elbows and dull hair!

You can also add some cooling oatmeal to your bath to instantly relieve itchiness and soften the skin while you have a relaxing soak in the tub. Why not use Mama's 'Take the Rough with the Smooth' Soothing Bath Soak? It combines oatmeal and Shea Butter with epsom salt and mandarin oil to create a calming salve for parched skin.

Why does the skin itch during pregnancy?

It's common for the skin to feel itchy during pregnancy because it has to stretch to make room for a growing baby. Hormone changes and an increased blood supply can also make the skin feel uncomfortable and dry. If the itch doesn't subside and gets worse make sure to visit your doctor.
