Beautiful curves – Tips on how to avoid stretch marks

During your pregnancy, your skin is high performing. Your tummy grows fast and stretch marks may occur as your skin stretches to allow your bump to grow. This is due to the levels of collagen in your skin.

Start early with the care of your stretch marks

In order to combat stretch marks, it is useful to start early on with a regular bodycare ritual using the Weleda Stretch Mark Massage Oil. The composition of precious almond oil, moisturising jojoba oil, vitamin E, rich wheat germ oil and an extract of arnica blossoms, increases the skin’s elasticity. Regularly massaged, this oil effectively supports your skin’s tissues.

Our tips

  • Regular massage is good for your overall well being.
  • For the alleviation of stretch marks, it is helpful to start using the Weleda Stretch Mark Massage Oil early on in your pregnancy by massaging tummy, upper thighs, bottom and breasts.
  • Use this oil after a shower or bath and apply to damp skin. It is easily absorbed without leaving a film.
  • Leave your nipples out of your body care regime during pregnancy. Nature is preparing your nipples for breast feeding and any bodycare products used on them may hinder this natural process.

Up to eight weeks after birth or six weeks after the end of breast feeding, your skin is still under the influence of hormonal changes. Weleda Stretch Mark Massage Oil uses only pure natural ingredients to protect your skin and support it through hormonal fluctuations.
