Pregnancy is truly a miracle and blessing, either to new or experienced parents, the wonder never cease. It’s not a new thing that your body is changing as your pregnancy progress. All changes are beautiful, definitely, but some of them can be less appealing (hello, stretch mark!). Fret not as we are here to help you!
What exactly are stretch marks?
Stretch marks are basically small scars located in the middle layer of your skin that are visible in the top layer of the skin. They form when rapid weight gain or hormonal changes stretch the skin beyond its ability to repair itself.
How to reduce the appearance of stretch marks?
1. Eat a healthy diet.
Eating a healthy diet is a great first step towards reducing the appearance of stretch marks during pregnancy. Rapid weight gain can’t be prevented during pregnancy but you can work to keep it within healthy limits.
2. Hydrate your skin twice daily.
A great way to reduce stretch marks during pregnancy is to keep your skin hydrated. We find that the best solution is to apply moisturising balm or lotion to your stomach, hips, thighs and chest at least twice a day. This allows your skin to expand and grow without tearing and forming stretch marks.
3. Drink plenty of water.
You’ll hydrate your skin from the outside with a beauty product, but you also should hydrate your skin from the inside too. Yes, that means you must drink lots of water, at least 3 liter per day!
4. Apply L’erbolario Stretch Mark Prevention & Firming Superattive Cream For Body
The best way to prevent stretch marks during pregnancy is to use a specially formulated stretch marks cream. With L’erbolario Stretch Mark Prevention & Firming Superattive Cream For Body, you can achieve elasticity and renewed, toned and nourished appearance. Massage these creams on a regular basis and as an essential part of the treatment.
With an extraordinary combination of plant-derived firming, restructuring and anti-age active ingredients that support the specific, powerful firming action of Kigela Africana, it prevents sagging and unsightly blemishes. When applied on a regular basis, it provides an extraordinary contribution to fighting the formation of stretch marks.
5. Exfoliate stretch mark-prone areas once a week with L’erbolario Stretch Mark Prevention Body Scrub Superrative Cream.
To get the most from your moisturiser and the stretch mark cream, exfoliating your stomach, hips, thighs and chest once per week helps, as it removes the dry and dead skin cells that may prevent your moisturizers and creams from penetrating to the lower layers of skin.
L’erbolario Stretch Mark Prevention Body Scrub Superrative Cream cleanses, smoothens, and refines your skin, leaving it soft and toned. The very fine almond shell granules contained in the very gentle low-foam cleansing system remove all the impurities, dead cells, micro obstacles that stop skin respiration from its surface and promote its natural renewal. The highly functional extracts of Kigela Africana and Green Tea ensure softness, hydration and tone.
It’s important to always make sure the product that you used are made with natural and organic ingredients so that they are safe to be used during pregnancy. At L’erbolario, we believe in using only the best and natural ingredients to provide the best beauty from nature.
