Fit Skin Tip

The Tummy Rub is not just about the growing it is also about the shrinking back 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 The 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 its biggest challenge when at its 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.

Smells great, but I still have marks
review by T
I love the smell of this oil. It absorbs rather quickly, and doesn't seem to leave residue on my clothing. I started using this in the beginning of my pregnancy 2xs a day along with the butter, and at 33 weeks, I still have marks. I don't fault the product, I know I am prone to them. I don't feel that any product can actually stop stretch marks. This product helps to stop the itchy/stretchy feeling I experience, so much better than any other lotion or product. I'm on my 3rd bottle. (Posted on 1/26/15)
3 pregnancies, still no stretchmarks
review by Anna
I first found out about the tummy rub oil, when being pregnant with my first child in 2007, living in London UK at that time. For pregnancy no.2 and 3 I got the oil shipped to Germany. I have been using the oil morning and evening during right from the beginning of all 3 pregnancies, which makes 6 bottles in total. Four weeks ago I gave birth to baby no. 3 and still not a single stretch mark. THANK YOU mamamio! (Posted on 1/17/15)
Works for CHOCOLATE SKIN Complexions
review by Glo
I love this product. Im an African American woman that loves her dark skin. I was so afraid of getting stretch marks as a result of my pregnancy. I applied the oil twice a day for the first 8 months and three times a day my last month of my pregnancy (I was pregnant 40 weeks and 6 days). My skin is EXTREMELY SOFT, SMOOTH AND SHINNY and NO STRETCH MARK IN SITE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Great product - dont like the new packaging
review by Heather
I do love this oil and have been using it at night since I found out I was pregnant. I also use the butter in the morning and at 7 months I have no signs of any stretchmarks yet. I already have some stretchmarks from puberty so I know my body is prone to them but I'm confident I will make it to the end with no new ones. Unfortunately I dont like the new packaging - its difficult to use the pump bottle when your hands are slippery with the oil and you cant see how much is left in the bottle like you could with the old packaging. A shame really. There was nothing wrong with the previous bottle style so no need to change it. (Posted on 4/28/14)
Love it!
review by Raquel
I've been using the Tummy Rub Oil almost from the beginning of my pregnancy and I love it! It is quickly absorbed and l leaves my expanding belly very soft and hydrated. I top it up with the Tummy Rub Butter and so far no stretch marks in sight! (Posted on 3/20/14)
most effective
review by Amy
I never take the time to write reviews but am doing so today because your products are exceptional. I am 39 weeks pregnant today without a single stretch mark on my tummy or boobs. I have a very strong history of stretch marks in my family - mom is completely covered in them and I got quite a bit on my legs and butt from weight loss/gain and growth. I've been using the tummy oil and butter combination religiously (sometimes 3 times a day!) since about week 12 and I am all tummy so quite big. This is one of the most effective skin care product lines I've ever used and makes me feel confident and happy to be pregnant. It's also nice to know it's free of harsh chemicals.

my saviour
review by Erin
I got tons of stretch marks when i was 12 years old from just growing (both wider and taller) so as soon as i got pregnant I was positive I was doomed. I bought both this product and the body butter and used religiously as soon as my belly started growing and managed ONE miniscule stretch mark I barely noticed until I searched. I swear this had to be the only reason I didn't get a million.

the best out there
review by Jess
This product is by far the best out in the Market. When i found out that i was expecting, the first thing i thought is that if i don't look after myself I'd definitely get some stretch marks. I tried products from chicco and mother-care to see the different, and they kinda help but don't feel the same quality as this product! am now 7 months and still have no new stretchmarks from pregnancy! i will keep using and applying this product as well as the tummy butter and will see how it goes, but i am confident that my skin will be well looked after by these products! just amazing!!!!
