At least half of pregnant women get stretch marks, but that doesn’t have to be you if you slowly gain no more weight than what experts recommend, which is around 30 pounds. At the same time, moisturizing your skin on a daily basis can also help prevent those pesky marks from appearing.
Stretch marks appear most often on your belly in the later stages of pregnancy, but some women also get them on their breasts, butt, thighs and hips. These annoying stripes are caused by changes in the elastic tissue underneath your skin. The rapid growth you experience during pregnancy strains it, creating pink, red, purple or brown marks that eventually fade to whitish colors but never actually disappear.
Moisturizing creams and oils can prevent your skin from itching as it stretches – these products can also make skin more elastic, which can prevent those dreaded marks from appearing. Ingredients found in products like those found in Mama Mio – BBB Kit keep your skin nourished and glowing during your pregnancy. A Tummy Rub, Wonder-full Balm, and Mama Mio – Boob Tube can strengthen the vitality of your skin cells and make your skin firmer, softer and more toned. Your growing skin will look radiant, and your post pregnancy body will appreciate your efforts!
