Stretch marks naturally gravitate to areas that store higher levels of fat within the body, such as the tummy, breasts, thighs, hips and butt. Hormones however, can also play a key role in stretch mark formation, as they inhibit fibroblasts from creating the reinforcing collagen and elastin that gives skin its flexibility and movement, which is what causes these tear-like scars within the skin to form.
Omegas, also known as essential fatty acids, are more important than ever during pregnancy, not only for nourishing your baby and providing essential healthy-growth nutrients, but for your skin as well. Remember that your baby who is growing inside of you is absorbing all your vitamins and nutrients to make a healthy brain and eyes, so you need as many Omegas as you can to not only help you, but help your baby. It is all wonderful and exactly as Nature planned, but as your body selflessly and happily gives these Omegas away to your baby, your skin may pay the price with a loss of strength and elasticity at the time it needs it most. So love your way to health with Omegas and keep you and your baby strong!
Help from the Inside; A high-quality Omega-3 supplement is a must, especially as these essential fatty acids are vital for your baby’s brain development and helping your skin to endure the 9-month stretch – without stretch marks.
Help from the Outside; Our pregnancy skincare products are brimming with organic Omega-rich oils so your skin can stretch easily and bounce back to its beautiful self with minimal scarring. A pregnancy can cause up to 30 inches of stretch across the body, so taking care of it from day one is essential to preventing damage further down the line.
- Top Tip From Mio
The Tummy Rub Butter and Oil are here to help you in your skincare battle—and you CAN win. Give your skin the best defence against stretch marks by nourishing your body from the inside out. Eating superfoods gives your skin the nutrients and vitamins it needs to stay strong supple.
Protect your tummy and other fat-accumulative areas such as boobs, hips and thighs against stretch marks with our super-elasticising Omega-packed blend of organic oils found in our The Tummy Rub Oil. Research has clinically proven that Omegas help skin elasticity and improve the very core of skin cells – helping your skin stretch and recover well past the 9 month stretch of pregnancy.
Tummy Treat – The Tummy Rubs also help relieve itchy tummies so you don’t damage skin by scratching.
How to apply; Rub on twice daily, from above your boobs to below your butt – front, back and sides. Keep rubbing for at least four months after your baby arrives to help maintain your skin tone as your body weight starts to decrease.
Too much skin exposure whether during pregnancy or not is damaging to the skin. Free radicals from UV rays cause the skin structure to weaken and become less defensible in the fight against skin trauma, such as Stretch Marks.
Since pregnancy is one of the major challenges your skin will ever face, be sure to wear clothing that will give you adequate SPF protection and keep you comfortable during the day (here at Mio, we are head over heels for loose kaftans from Melissa Obadash that double as chic pregnancy cover-ups too!)
Make sure to stay in the shade on sunny holidays and apply SPF protection throughout the day as UV rays can penetrate through clouds. We love sun protection that is organic and natural so you do not absorb chemicals into your skin which could harm both you and your baby.
Doctors and nurses are constantly reminding us that one of the best ways to protect the skin from developing stretch marks is a slow and steady weight gain to help the skin get used to its weight fluctuations and let it stretch without sudden, damaging impacts. One of the best ways to support your health, body and baby during pregnancy is to eat clean and absorb as many vitamins as you can.
We know that pregnancy cravings can occur across any food however, so if you do have a craving for something sweet or salty, just eat well during the rest of the day. Listen to your body - it knows what it needs! Stay within the recommended weight gain guidelines and you’ll be beating stretch marks before they even have time to appear – RESULT!
Put some time aside during the week to focus on your fitness and do whatever workout you can that is both safe and comfortable for you and your baby. When you sweat, you circulation natural increases, encouraging the delivery of oxygen and nutrients to your skin to help it stay fit so it stays healthy. Engage your body in pre-natal yoga which is gentle for the body, but encourages relaxation and overall fitness and muscle tone, to help you better prepare for the arrival of your little one!
