Nat­u­ral care against stretch marks

The Star Malaysia - Star2 - - STAR SPECIAL PARENTING -

WHEN you are preg­nant, get ready to go through new ex­pe­ri­ences and changes to your body for the next nine months.

Stud­ies show that 70% of women de­velop stretch marks dur­ing preg­nancy, and this is one out of five rea­sons for in­se­cu­rity in women.

Women de­velop stretch marks dur­ing preg­nancy be­cause of the rapid and sud­den growth of their body.

These marks are formed when un­der­ly­ing tis­sue grows faster than the skin lay­ers cov­er­ing it, caus­ing the epi­der­mal sur­face to break. The re­sult – dark lines on the skin known as stretch marks.

For some women, their stretch marks de­velop for the first time only dur­ing preg­nan­cies.

Though a woman’s ab­dom­i­nal area can be flat for the first three or four months of preg­nancy, it can sud­denly swell dur­ing the fifth to sixth month.

The foe­tus grows faster than the mother’s skin can keep up, sub­ject­ing the ab­dom­i­nal skin around her tummy to sig­nif­i­cant amount of ten­sion. This causes epi­der­mal rup­tures, leading to stretch marks.

Be­cause ev­ery per­son is dif­fer­ent, and the skin grows at dif­fer­ent rates, some suf­fer less se­verely than oth­ers.

Al­though it is dif­fi­cult to com­pletely erad­i­cate, pre­ven­tive mea­sures may help.

Jojo E Stretch Mark Serum from Gar­den of Eden helps moth­ers to min­imise, if not pre­vent stretch marks, dry and itchy skin.

The serum con­tains Jo­joba Oil, nat­u­ral vi­ta­min E, saf­flower oil, and grape seed oil – 100% nat­u­ral and con­cen­trated oils that are safe and hon­est with­out ar­ti­fi­cial and chemical fillers.

These in­gre­di­ents form a po­tent serum blend that can in­crease the skin’s sup­ple­ness, nour­ish and soften it, al­low­ing it to stretch with­out any marks when you progress in your preg­nancy.

Jojo E Stretch Mark Serum is also a nat­u­ral mois­turiser that ab­sorbs in­stantly to re­lieve and nour­ish dry and itchy skin due to ex­treme stretch­ing.
