Stretch marks : Advice from Experts
Preventing stretch marks
Once stretch marks appear, they are difficult to remove completely. Therefore, prevention is essential to ensure they do not appear. How effective the prevention depends on how early you treat your skin, how regularly they appear and how long they last. It is recommended to use an anti-stretch mark product daily as soon as you become pregnant and up until one month after birth. Select a product specifically formulated to prevent stretch marks for pregnant women; it will help minimize the inflammatory effects and stimulate the regenerative capacity of your skin.
At the same time, try to monitor your weight (without becoming obsessive about it) throughout your pregnancy to minimize the risk of the stretch marks appearing.
