Home remedies for stretch marks during pregnancy: shower massage
The beginning of the day is best to start with a massage in the shower with a warm and cold water jet. We massage those body parts that are most susceptible to stretch marks: belly, buttocks, thighs in a circular motion. The water jet should not be too intense, a gentle flow will be enough. Massage with ice cubes also brings excellent results, but the treatment is not very pleasant.
Home remedies for stretch marks in pregnancy: moisturizing
The most effective method of preventing but minimizing stretch marks is above all accurate and systematic moisturizing of the skin. After bathing, dry the body thoroughly and rub in well concentrated preparation, which moisturizes the skin and gives it elasticity.
one can use the finished preparation (lotion, cream, baby olive) or make the preparation yourself at home. If we already decide on a preparation from the store, we choose the one intended for pregnant women, so as not to harm the baby. It is better to avoid lotions with caffeine, AHA acids, silicone, salicylic acid or camphor.
The cosmetics should be gentle, do not irritate the skin and contain as little artificial preservatives or dyes as possible. The easiest way is to use it olive oil (unrefined, cold pressed), which perfectly greases and tones the skin. It should be massaged thoroughly into the skin of the abdomen, buttocks and breasts. After applying the oil, it is a good idea to wait with the clothes until absorbed. This way you will avoid greasy stains on clothes!
