During pregnancy, expectant mothers are constantly concerned about various issues of beauty of their own body. Many are very afraid of the appearance of stretch marks after childbirth. This is successfully used by manufacturers of creams and offer a choice of a lot of options that, according to advertising, will relieve this problem.
Why do stretch marks appear?
Oddly enough, the reason for their appearance is of the least interest, it is much more important to learn how to get rid of stretch marks. But they can appear not only during pregnancy, but also with too sharp weight loss.
There are stretch marks, or scientifically, striae, due to the fact that there is a sharp set or weight loss, and during pregnancy, hormonal changes in the body also affect. The skin surface is depleted, loses its elasticity and eventually scars, as a result, scars are formed. The first time the scars can be pink, then they turn white.
I almost immediately began to grow belly, enjoyed the cream, and I did not have very noticeable stretch marks. But in the maternity hospital, I saw how the girls had bright red scars on their stomachs. The spectacle is not pleasant.
When to start using the cream?
It is believed that the sooner you start using the cream, the better. Many full-bodied people use special creams for prophylaxis.
I myself began to use from about the 12th week of pregnancy, although the tummy was not yet visible, but the first outlines began to appear.
How to choose a cream for stretch marks?
From the choice of creams in the store eyes run up, but agree, I do not want to pay big money, but then the effect is not to see. Yes, and buy a cheap cream, from which zero sense, is also not an option.
The first thing you need to pay attention to the composition of the cream. It must be collagen and elastin, as these substances increase skin elasticity. You also need to have amino acids, vitamins E and C.
Before buying the cream, I asked for advice from those who already used it. I was advised to cream company Our mother. The reviews about him are different, but I used and can say that I have only a few slightly noticeable stretch marks after two pregnancies.
I smeared not only the stomach, but also the hips. I unfortunately have a lot of stretch marks on my hips, but they appeared earlier because of a sharp weight loss.
It is desirable to apply the cream twice a day, not to miss and not be lazy! Otherwise, the effect will not be.
A friend used the cream of the Belarusian company Mom and Baby. Smeared the stomach regularly, says that the effect is. She has no stretch marks. I did not try the cream myself, but I bought several products from this company. I liked the intimate-gel, but this is another topic.
Mumiye against stretch marks
Unfortunately, it was only after the second birth that I learned that an inexpensive cream can be made on my own. Many people speak very positively of this remedy against stretch marks. It is said that even old scars become less noticeable. And I decided to try.
She took the most ordinary children’s cream, squeezed it into an empty jar. Then she dissolved 4 grams of mummy in a teaspoon of boiled water and mixed with cream. Mix well and start smearing.
I use it for about two weeks. Mostly I apply on the hips, there I have more noticeable stretch marks. They have become much smaller.
And yet, it seems to me, it all depends on the skin. If she is prone to stretch marks, they will appear, and some girls do not use creams at all, and their skin is smooth and beautiful. You also need to pay attention to food, do not abuse the sweet and flour during pregnancy.
