Natural care against stretch marks
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.
The best time to start using the serum is during the early stages of pregnancy but Jojo E Stretch Mark Serum is also effective on old or new stretch marks.
It is recommended to be used twice daily after a shower or as often as desired. Just four to five drops massaged over the tummy, thighs, buttocks and breast area will give the skin a smooth, silky feel. It is safe for both mother and baby.
Jojo E Serum retails at M39.90 (15ml pack) or RM63.90 (32ml pack) at Caring Pharmacy, Alpro Pharmacy, Vitacare Pharmacy, Healthlane Pharmacy, Mediconstant Pharmacy and other selected pharmacies nationwide.
