Wondering how to prevent stretch marks during pregnancy? Although you can’t always avoid them entirely, you can reduce the appearance of stretch marks with dedicated skin care. Along with hydration and vitamin supplements, one of the best ways to avoid stretch marks is to use a specially formulated skin balm. At Mambino Organics, we select only the purest, plant-based ingredients that are safe to use during pregnancy.
The rapid growth and sudden weight changes of pregnancy cause the middle layer of your skin to stretch and tear, leaving scars behind. Stretch marks can appear on your belly, thighs, breasts, hips, and bum. While some women proudly wear their stretch marks as a badge of honor, others would prefer to avoid getting stretch marks during pregnancy.
Keeping your body hydrated will improve your skin’s elasticity and help prevent the appearance of stretch marks. Drink at least 64 ounces of water throughout the day for optimum hydration. Drinking water in between meals is the best way to stay hydrated. Beverages with electrolytes will also boost hydration— coconut water has naturally occurring electrolytes to help you replace lost fluids.
The sun helps your body synthesize vitamin D, which is important for healthy skin. If you’re going to be out in the sun for an extended period of time, make sure to use a pregnancy-safe sunscreen to protect your skin from UV rays. Remember to drink extra water when you’re out in the sun, because pregnant women are often more susceptible to heat and dehydration.
Along with many other important nutrients, prenatal supplements have vitamin C, which helps fortify your skin’s health. The antioxidants in vitamin C protect against dryness, sun damage, wrinkles, and scarring. Vitamin C also regulates your skin’s production of collagen to promote firmness and repair damaged skin. Taking a prenatal supplement with vitamin C will ensure that the dosage is safe during pregnancy.
