Fit Skin Tip

Tummy Rub is not just about the growing it is also about the shrinking back down to normal size and maintaining your skin tone. Keep rubbing for at least four months after baby has arrived on the scene.


How it works


Mama Mio Tummy Rubs are primarily designed for one thing: increasing skin elasticity. You’re gonna grow, you’re gonna shrink; and no-one tells you your skin doesn’t have to suffer – but it’s a battle and you have to fight! Your secret weapon is the continual and plentiful use of Omega 3, 6 and 9 to build your skin’s strength and elasticity.


What are stretch marks?

Stretch Marks are tears that occur in the dermal layer of your skin due to a prolonged distention and pressure, such as pregnancy. The pressure on your skin becomes too great and the collagen and elastin fibres give way. If you are wondering whether you will get pregnancy stretch marks; there is a genetic pre-disposition towards them – unfortunately, it is impossible to predict, until it is too late and you have them. Think about it this way: wrinkles around your eyes are also genetic and we all use the best eye cream to stave off time and minimise smile lines for as long as possible. We are trying to encourage women to think about stretch marks in the same way. Of course, as with everything, there are some who are genetically gifted and who won’t get a single stretch mark even though they took twins to full term (those are also the people who no doubt complain about having to eat to keep weight on!) but for the rest of us mortals, it takes some work and dedication. If your mother had stretch marks or if you already have the fine silvery lines of teen-growth stretch marks, you are most vulnerable. The important conclusion to draw is that protection is the best cure for stretch marks.

Omega 3, 6 and 9 (Essential Fatty Acids) are crucial to so much in our bodies – but we are unable to manufacture them ourselves – we have to either eat them in our food, or take supplements. So imagine we have a little cookie jar full of them, and when you are pregnant your baby is raiding your cookie jar to make some very important things (like eyes, brains, central nervous system!) and we will give them joyfully. But this means our omega levels dip to the lowest levels, which means your skin is about to grow 30 inches and face it’s biggest challenge when at it’s weakest point. Bad plan right? But by applying tons of the omegas 3, 6 and 9 directly onto the skin, you will give your skin the strength it needs to fight stretch marks and maintain elasticity as it shrinks back down.

Interestingly, Essential Fatty Acids make up 30% of the dry weight of your retina, and 20% of the dry weight of your brain… during pregnancy your brain actually shrinks by up to 2 % and this is purely the loss of Essential Fatty Acids. So by all means take a supplement – but your body has a hierarchy where it will send the Omegas and your skin is at the bottom of the pile. So by applying them topically, you will get the immediate benefits to the strength and elasticity of your skin. Continual and plentiful use of omega 3, 6 and 9 will nourish the lipid layer of the skin, helping to maintain the suppleness and elasticity. Research has clinically proven that omegas help skin elasticity and improve the very integrity of skin cells – helping your skin stretch and recover.

So by applying The Tummy Rub twice daily, we firmly believe that you are giving your skin the very best chance to get through pregnancy without stretch marks. And judging by the thousands of emails we have received praising The Tummy Rub to high heaven, there are a lot of mamas who would agree.

Wow Body Butter
review by Caroline
This is one of the best body butters I've used ever and I've tried a few. Its worth the investment as you probably use less overall, plus if you apply in the morning you can still feel the effects in the evening. Smooth smooth skin, just like the velvet effect and thats no exaggeration! My first attempt when applying was to smother my skin, no need, a little goes a long way and the smell is amazing! I'd class this product ideal for super dry scaly skin. I'd always avoided highly scented creams however I've found a product that works all day long and has the most divine smell which is unusual for any body cream. Thanks Mio….please please start to develop products for babies and toddlers. And suncream too!! I am the ultimate Mio Skin Lover x (Posted on 10/3/14)
not one stretch mark
review by Ann Kwader
Not one stretch mark! I dare you...take a magnifying glass to my skin and you won't find one stretch mark. Tummy Rub Stretch Mark Butter was wonderful during and post pregnancy. It helped sooth the dry itchy skin as well. Thank you! (Posted on 10/3/14)
Good product but sadly didn't work for me
review by Ewa
I've been using the Mamma Mio Tummy Rub Butter throughout my pregnancy (twice a day, to the point where one tub was only lasting me for a week) but sadly it didn't work for me at all - my tummy is covered with stretch marks :(
I guess it's true what they say it it all depends on the genes... (Posted on 8/1/14)
Money well spent
review by Rachel
I was paranoid about stretch marks when I got pregnant with my daughter as most of my family got them badly post babies. However, I used the tummy rub butter every morning and the oil every night from the end of the first trimester and I was delighted with the results. I only have one tiny faint mark you would have to squint very closely to see, on my hip! Not an area I focused as hard on with the cream I guess. I am now returning for more as I am pregnant with number two. I recommend this to all my friends. It feels gorgeous and smells wonderful-and I am fussy about fragrances especially when pregnant. I wouldn't normally spend this much money on skincare but I figure its worth it as I won't be embarrassed to get back into a bikini later down the line! I should also say that it hasn't just protected against stretch marks, my skin genuinely feels as supple and firm as before I had my daughter, I haven't got that 'loose skin' that you can sometimes get after pregnancy. Massive fan! (Posted on 4/3/14)

I will continue to use this product
review by Clare
I had been using another well known brand of stretch mark oil in the initially stages of my pregnancy but my skin still felt tight and itchy. I was recommended the mama bio stretch mark butter by a friend and I've never looked back! It's thick, luxurious and soft. I'm 36 weeks pregnant and fingers crossed still no stretch marks! I will continue to use this product for a few weeks after the birth of my baby.

feels like a treat
review by Laura
Applying this cream is a delight, I feel like it's a treat for me and my baby! When my husband talks to the bump, he always says how lovely it smells and how soft my skin is which is nice for him and lovely for me because I get extra kisses there...so does baby! He's always talking to bump anyway but he loves the smell of the cream so he talks to baby longer. I feel like bump is part of the family already, the amount of attention she's getting, even though we haven't even met her yet!

amazing!
review by Yvonne
I used the stretch mark butter & oil while pregnant and I did not get a single stretch mark. Amazing! my baby is now 10 weeks old. Whether its down to mama mio or to genes as my mum did not have stretch marks while pregnant or to a product call Trifolastin as I used all three together I don't know. All I know is that I will still use the stretch mark butter & oil when I get pregnant again!.
