Pregnancy stretch marks

Stretch marks are a nightmare for many women and cream manufacturers interested in expanding their market seek to address this issue. Unfortunately the truth is that while those creams can help us with reducing stretch marks or making them less visible, they cannot guarantee us that the marks won’t appear again.Getting stretch marks depends from our type of skin, which means that some women can have no stretch marks, even if they did not use any special creams during their pregnancy; some women can have plenty of stretch marks even if they were looking after their body carefully and in addition used a few of supplements to avoid having stretch marks. Although it is not always possible to avoid stretch marks, we can still reduce their visibility.

Start moisturizing your skin before pregnancy

Well-hydrated skin is more resistant, flexible and will get fewer stretch marks. Those which will appear will not be very visiblle so you won’t be that concerned about them.

Right diet

Right diet is also very important for your skin.
You should eat healthy for your skin and for your baby also. Drink water, avoid fizzy drinks. If you want your tea to be sweet use natural sugar. Make sure that yoghurts and any other products which may contain sugar have natural sugar instead of sweeteners which are very artificial and can harm your baby and make your skin less hydrated.

Creams for pregnant women

There are plenty of creams for stretch marks, you should get them too. Make sure that the cream which you are going to purchase is not only for stretch marks but also for pregnant women. Some creams contain ingredients which are not recommended for pregnant women as they could harm their babies.

Unable to get rid of stretch marks

There is not much you can do about stretch marks. If you already have them and found that it is very difficult or even not possible to get rid of them you need to use a different tactic. Firstly you should accept yourself with stretch marks and give yourself more time. There are plenty of creams for stretch marks, so if one cream did not work for you, you should try another and another one. Remember that those creams won’t make your stretch marks disappear. They will only make them less visible. Later, if you are finding that stretch marks limit your life in some way and you are unable to accept them, if you can afford it financially, you can consider plastic surgery.
