So many hormones, so many new sensations and now one more change. But how to avoid stretch marks in pregnancy? What to use to prevent stretch marks? Is it possible to treat stretch marks after childbirth? Let’s look at these issues.
What is Stria?
The skin is basically composed of fibers, the stretch mark is the stretch with rupture of the fibers that make up the skin, be it from the belly, breasts, thighs or anywhere else on the body. In pregnancy the uterus grows with the evolution of pregnancy and consequently the abdominal skin is stretched and when it is beyond capacity the stretch mark in pregnancy appears.
How to Avoid Stretch Marks in Pregnancy?
Hydration! That is the keyword of that subject. It’s very simple, just moisturize your skin and also your body , one of the secrets to a smooth skin is the consumption of a lot of water. Creams help to hydrate on the outside, but the biggest asset that a pregnant woman can have to prevent stretch marks during pregnancy is first of all to hydrate the body from the inside out.
Which Cream to Use?
Creams are the most varied on the market, of course there is always a more effective one that ends up becoming the darling of pregnant women, and stretch marks in pregnancy are perfectly preventable with the prevention and use of these creams.
When I was pregnant for the first time, I went to a dermatologist who prescribed a formula with components like grape oil, and some other ingredients, but for me it didn’t particularly help, they appeared and in large quantities in the abdomen. Although I used almond oil after bathing, they still showed up, so it didn’t work either.
Now in the second pregnancy I used the cream that really played an important role for me, it was Hidramamy, it is very fragrant and very good, I didn’t have stretch marks in this pregnancy. I got to try Luciara too, but I confess that Hidramamy won me over on that occasion.
In the 3rd pregnancy I got a cream from a friend, she bought it for about U $ 5.00 in the USA and it was another passion, it is called Cocoa Butter for pregnant women, it is a tube that yielded the whole pregnancy, because I alternated the use with the Hidramamy cream, the two together were perfect!
It has a great coconut scent and surprised me for its price and quality . Here in Brazil you can find it for approximately R $ 70.00, it is a big difference of values so if you are going to travel abroad or know someone who is going, then it makes a lot of difference to bring from there.
Stretch marks … I already had them, and now there is a solution? So, nowadays there are very advanced treatments when it comes to striae, soon I will talk about them more deeply.
To the next!
My name is Dr. Alexis Hart I am 38 years old, I am the mother of 3 beautiful children! Different ages, different phases 16 years, 12 years and 7 years. In love with motherhood since always, I found it difficult to make my dreams come true, and also some more after I was already a mother.
Since I imagined myself as a mother, in my thoughts everything seemed to be much easier and simpler than it really was, I expected to get pregnant as soon as I wished, but it wasn’t that simple. The first pregnancy was smooth, but my daughter’s birth was very troubled. Joana was born in 2002 with a weight of 2930kg and 45cm, from a very peaceful cesarean delivery but she had already been born with congenital pneumonia due to a broken bag not treated with antibiotics even before delivery.
