SCARS don’t scare me

Mother & Baby (Australia) - - Real Advice -

Be­tween con­cep­tion and wel­com­ing your lit­tle mir­a­cle to the world, your body is go­ing to go through a lot of changes. Un­for­tu­nately, stretch marks are likely to ap­pear. The pesky marks are scars caused by trauma to the skin due to rapid ex­pan­sion, re­sult­ing in a break in the col­la­gen struc­ture of the skin. Even though stretch marks can’t be re­versed, there are lots of treat­ments to keep your skin sup­ple and min­imise the ap­pear­ance of any marks. From the time you fall preg­nant to well af­ter bub is born, mas­sage your skin daily with a stretch mark cream or oil to pro­mote elas­tic­ity.
