Stretch marks: how to prevent their appearance during pregnancy?

Stretch marks are small benign marks that can appear during a quick weight gain. They are due to a loosening of the skin elasticity.

They can sometimes aesthetically bother, particularly during pregnancy where they can appear on the mother’s stomach and/or breast. There are different ways to avoid them and, if they are already here, to reduce them.

How can you anticipate the appearance of stretch marks?

  • Maximise your hydration throughout your pregnancy: it will allow your skin to better resist body changes,
  • Be consistent in the use of moisturising products: ideally, you should use them after every shower insisting on the relevant areas,
  • Make sure you have a balanced diet, an adequate iron intake to allow your skin to self-protect, as well as a good zinc intake for your skin elasticity (favour whole grain products for instance),
  • Monitor your nutrition in order to get the healthiest weight gain possible.

Which products should you use?

  • Moisturisers and oils with rich and hydrating products: shea butter, coconut oil, hyaluronic acid (which helps collagen production and hydration) but also Gotu Kola (Centella asiatica) for its hydrating and protecting properties.

We suggest you these kinds of products:
