Being pregnant is one of the most joyful times in a mother’s life. However, your skin goes through several changes over the months leading up to your baby’s birth. Stretch marks around the belly are totally normal, but they usually take a long time to fade away. So the best way to reduce the appearance of stretch marks is to use pregnancy-safe skincare products during pregnancy.
Many moms-to-be worry about the products they use on their skin, and rightfully so, because most pregnancy products contain strong chemicals that could potentially harm the skin. It’s best to use plant-based skincare products designed for pregnant ladies so you won’t have to worry about rashes and skin irritations. At Clarins, all pregnancy body care products contain plant-based formulas packed with botanical benefits that help to treat, nourish and protect the skin.
Pregnancy is a beautiful thing, but stretch marks take time to go away, which can be frustrating for most new mothers. Stretch marks are scars caused when the skin is stretched too quickly. As the skin recovers, stretch marks begin to appear around the belly, hips, breasts and thighs. Don’t fret, they can be prevented with the right pregnancy body care products.
Many new mothers and mothers-to-be would use the Body Partner Stretch Mark Expert in the morning and evening to reduce the appearance of stretch marks and enhance the body’s collagen production to improve skin elasticity. Olive, Palm and Coconut oils improve suppleness while accelerating the skin’s healing process. This non-greasy, fragrance-free and colour-free cream also lightens new stretch marks and stimulates the skin’s natural repair process. Many mothers also use this pregnancy body care cream as a massage medium, as it effectively comforts and soothes the skin during pregnancy. It also restructures the connective tissues and soothes stretched skin, leaving it soft and supple.
Our Tonic Body Treatment Oil is one of the go-to pregnancy-safe skincare products online. Use this product after the stretch mark cream to moisturise your skin. This treatment oil helps to firm, tone and escalate the skin’s natural elasticity to prevent the appearance of stretch marks while retaining skin firmness. Formulated with Hazelnut Oil infused with Vitamins A and E and a blend of aromatic essential oils, this lightweight pregnancy skincare oil nourishes and softens the skin. The pleasant scent of aromatic botanicals promote a feeling of well-being, and this oil is absolutely safe because it contains no preservatives or colourants. Massage this treatment oil into dry or damp skin at least once or twice a week in gentle sweeping motions, starting from the ankles and focusing on areas of concern like the waist, thighs, hips and buttocks. It’s also great for moms with a sagging bust from breastfeeding.
If you’re worried about dry, tired-looking skin, use the Exfoliating Body Scrub for Smooth Skin. This refreshing exfoliating cream treatment stimulates skin cell renewal and features Natural Bamboo Powders that help to remove dirt and rough, flaky skin. Mimosa and Shea extracts add a sheer veil of moisture to the skin, leaving your skin feeling soft, clean and smooth.
It’s common for moms-to-be to gain weight during pregnancy, and the extra weight can cause your legs to feel tired or strained. When you’re pregnant, the increased blood circulation and hormonal changes can cause discomfort, especially in the legs. So treat your legs to a relaxing, plant-based lotion like our Energizing Emulsion for Tired Legs – designed to relax, tone and revitalise tired legs while moisturising the skin. This lightweight lotion absorbs quickly and can even be applied over stockings.
