STRETCH MARKS IN PREGNANCY: A CARE GUIDE

published 29 february 2024

Pregnancy is a beautiful journey filled with excitement and anticipation, but it also comes with its fair share of challenges. As your body goes through the miraculous process of creating life, hormonal and body fluctuations can cause huge skin changes, one of which is stretch marks. However, with proper care and attention, you can help prevent and manage stretch marks over time.

what are stretch marks?

Stretch marks are indented, discolored streaks that appear on the skin, specifically around the hips, thighs, stomach, breasts, and buttocks.

Stretch marks can come about for a variety of reasons including genetics, and weight and height changes. Pregnancy is commonly considered to be a #1 cause of stretch marks.

Stretch marks rarely disappear completely after pregnancy, but they fade over time. A good skin care routine can help reduce their appearance, and help prevent them from the start.
HOW TO ADDRESS STRETCH MARKS?
1

MOISTURIZE

Moisturizing the skin is absolutely necessary in minimizing the formation of stretch marks by preventing dryness and skin breakage. Opt for moisturizers rich in cocoa butter, shea butter, or vitamin E, and apply them generously to the belly, breasts, and thighs.

The MUTHA Body Butter is formulated with an all-natural, vitamin and antioxidant rich triple butter blend, and is clinically proven to improve the appearance of stretch marks.

2

MASSAGE THE SKIN

Massaging the skin with nourishing oils can improve circulation and promote skin elasticity, preventing skin breakage and stretch marks. Gently massage the affected areas in circular motions to encourage absorption and boost collagen.

The MUTHA Body Oil is formulated with rosehip and jojoba oil, which are lightweight and have vitamins, antioxidants, omega fatty acids.

3

HYDRATE AND NOURISH

Remember to care for your body inside and out. Make sure to stay hydrated and eat more healthy fats, and vitamins E, C, and zinc; this helps improve skin elasticity, which keeps it soft and supple and helps prevent stretch marks.
While stretch marks can be challenging, they are a natural part of pregnancy and can be managed with care. By maintaining a consistent skincare routine, like with the MUTHA Body Butter and Body Oil, you can nurture your skin and embrace the beauty of this transformative journey of motherhood, inside and out.
