How to Prevent Stretch Marks During Pregnancy
Stretch marks are one of the many unpleasant possibilities of pregnancy. In truth, between 75 and 90 percent of all pregnant women develop stretch marks during pregnancy. Stretch marks mainly appears on abdomen, upper thighs, buttocks, breasts and even arms, depending on the amount of weight gain, your genetic history, and whether or not you make a concerted effort to prevent stretch marks.
So what can you do to prevent stretch marks? Scientists believe that genetics play an important role in whether or not you are predisposed to getting stretch marks. This means that if your mother got stretch marks during pregnancy, you may be more likely to get them yourself. However, there are some things you can do to limit the possibility of getting stretch marks.
Steps to Prevent Stretch Marks
1. Eat a healthy and balanced diet that keeps your weight gain within the recommended range of 25 to 35 pounds. A nutritious diet is not only vital for your developing baby, but it also contributes to the strength and health of your skin.
2. Use a body brush to gently massage the areas where you have stretch marks, or want to prevent stretch marks from appearing. This will increase circulation to the area, which may be helpful in preventing stretch marks.
3. Drink plenty of water to keep hydrated. Hydration is important for your overall health and well-being as well as that of your growing baby, and it is critical to healthy skin.
4. Keep your skin moisturized in the first or second trimester and through your recovery to your pre-pregnancy weight, perhaps with a stretch mark prevention cream. These moisturizers will help keep your skin supple and elastic. These nourishing lotion, oil or cream contain ingredients such as vitamin E, vitamin A, emu oil, cocoa butter, wheat germ oil and lanolin.
