Stretch marks, the bain of every mother. I have had three kids and my stomach got bigger and bigger during pregnancy with each kid. So once you have them and the deed is done, how do you go about getting rid of them? Why do you get them? How do you prevent them? All questions on the mind of every pregnant woman with hopes of looking good naked ever again.
Water Water Everywhere
Guzzle that water pregnant momma…and postpartum. Our bodies are made of water and need all the water we can get just to make the baby and feed it…that is not even counting our own selfish needs. By far, #1 tip I can give any woman wanting to look and feel healthy and beautiful 24/7
Shea Butter While Pregnant
Shea Butter After Pregnancy
Use that stuff by the tub. Buy it by the gallon. You’ll smell like fresh baked chocolate chip cookies, but your skin will be soft and supple. It has 100 other uses and is a wonderul item to have around the house. I won’t pretend to be an expert, but the Examiner has a good article to explain better.
These are my two saviours…hands down. I still have the stretched out skin, but much harder to see without trying hard. You can hit up a doctor to nip and tuck too, but that isn’t my thing.
