Being almost six months along, the skin around my belly is definitely starting to feel the tug.. Luckily, I’ve found these three products that have helped keep me glowing and stretch mark free!
Here’s what I’m loving right now…
Pregnant or not, you will love this oil. It’s intended for the face, body, and hair and is made with an exceptional blend of oils (grape, hibiscus, sesame and argan) and anti-oxidant Polyphenols. I spritz this all over after my morning shower to moisturize and give me a subtle fragrance. It really is divine, and absorbs quickly enough to get dressed after use. You can find it at Stanley Korshak.
I love the Honest Company and how pregnancy-safe all their products are. This rich balm in a jar contains a blend of organic butters, botanicals and antioxidants for optimal belly and body health. Organic shea butter, olive oil, tamanu oil and calendula help prevent stretch marks, improve elasticity, and hydrate for soft and supple skin. I keep this on my bedside table and apply liberally before bed with my other skincare regime.
Another company I can’t get enough of is Kneipp (you can also find it at Stanley Korshak). I give their bath salts for gifts all the time and have now been turned on to their body oils. Almond Blossom Body Oil is formulated with natural Sweet Almond, Sunflower and Jojoba Oils enhanced with Vitamins A & E to regenerate the skin and protect it from harmful environmental influences. This pleasant smelling oil improves skin elasticity which is great for preventing stretch marks, even though that’s not its intended purpose. I love applying it all over after I get out of the bath in the evening, but I think it’s a little too heavy for use in the morning prior to dressing.
There you have it. My three products (for post-shower, post-bath, before-bed) that will hopefully keep me stretch-mark free and glowing throughout the coming months… I hope you will consider trying some of them, pregnant or not!
