Worried about pregnancy stretch marks?

April 20, 2016

Worried about getting pregnancy stretch marks? Don't be! The majority of women develop stretch marks in pregnancy. The good news is that they don't hurt and they don't last forever!

When stretch marks first appear they are red/purple in colour but over time they being to fade and become lighter, making them almost invisible to the eye. Most women get stretch marks over their baby bump as their skin stretches to accommodate for their growing baby. However, they can also appear over the breasts, thighs and arms.

One way to prevent stretch marks is to moisturise your skin throughout your pregnancy. This helps to keep the skin supple and soft. Boosting the skin's elasticity ensures that it can stretch without making tears in the dermis and forming stretch marks.

Use Mama's Belly Rub Stretch Mark Oil daily to condition your skin and prepare it for the changes your body will undergo over the nine months of your pregnancy. Rub it on your belly, thighs, breasts and arms to soften the skin and soothe dryness. The nourishing blend of Baoab Oil and Shea Butter will soak into your skin, boosting its elasticity, and the fragrant scent will uplift your spirits even when you feel nauseous and tired.

Continue to use the oil after the birth of your baby to help your skin retain moisture and encourage any existing stretch marks to fade. Remember your hormones will need to settle back to normal after you give birth and this can effect the texture of your skin. Keeping it moisturised and cared for will ensure that you can get your old body back quicker.
