Stretch marks are the number one enemy of pregnant women. Although we cannot prevent them, we can at least minimise their effects. When you gain weight, the skin stretches and must create more elastin and collagen fibres. But hormone changes slow down this mechanism and the skin's elastic fibres break more easily. Red or even purple streaks appear on the stomach, chest, hips, and thighs. From the beginning of your pregnancy, apply anti-stretch mark oils on your whole body once or twice a day. Continue this up to four months after giving birth.
Pregnancy is the time to pamper yourself and enjoy the journey. While pregnancy hormones affect different women differently, it usually brings about common skin issues like breakouts, dry skin, and pigmentations. Following these simple tips will help you to understand how to take care of your skin and protect your healthy glow.
