I can't believe its been a little over 3 years since I was pregnant. December 13, 2011 holds a special place in my heart. It was the day I gave birth to my son, Jayden Blayze. It feels like it was just yesterday when I was carrying him in my tummy. Crazy how fast time flies.
As a first time mom I am constantly meeting other new moms & moms who are expecting. More than often I get asked what products I used during my pregnancy to prevent stretch marks. Stretch marks are caused by your skin stretching as you gain weight in pregnancy. It usually happens around the 2nd-3rd trimester when your body grows faster than your skin can keep up with. Unfortunately stretch marks are said to be hereditary so some prevention creams may not work for everyone. However, I do believe it's good to always keep your skin hydrated regardless if your trying to prevent stretch marks or not.
During my pregnancy, I used a variety of hydrating products. The rule for me was to constantly moisturize my skin as it got bigger & bigger & NOT to scratch when it got itchy. As the skin stretches you'll notice intense itchiness. Moisturizing your skin will help tame that problem. I moisturized every morning right when I got out of the shower while my skin was slightly damp. And again right before bed. Focus on the areas that are prone to stretching during pregnancy - belly, butt/thighs & boobs.
Hope this helps all you mommies out there who are looking for skin care products! These are the main products I used during my pregnancy that helped keep my growing bump nice and hydrated. If you want more info on product description, ingredients, etc there are clickable links that will direct you to each site above.
Again, stretch marks can't solely be prevented through skincare products so don't be discourage if you have them & can't control them. The key during this time is to constantly nourish & hydrate your body while you are carrying your little one. Don't forget — You're beautiful in the skin you're in & your little one adores you. All of you.
