Stretch marks are considered to be a badge of pregnancy; an award that’s generally received as you enter motherhood, however, for a lot of women, the appearance of stretch marks is their worst nightmare.
Pregnancy causes rapid weight gain so your skin is forced out of its natural comfort zone much quicker that it is comfortable with which consequently means that it finds it much harder to go back to its original position when pregnancy is over. During pregnancy the hormone glucocorticoids is circulated much more often through the body and prevents the skin from going back to its former position which results in stretch marks.
Many stretch mark treatments and other skin care products are not safe for use during pregnancy, however, Dermalogica is an exception and most of their products are safe to use during pregnancy and while breast feeding.
Dermalogica’s Ultra Rich Body Cream helps to hydrate and moisturise the skin at the same time as reducing the appearance of stretch marks. Linoleic acid is used to help to repair the broken down skin caused by rapid weight gain and the increased production of glucocorticoids.
Stretch marks aren’t something to be embarrassed about but Dermalogica’s Ultra Rich Body Cream will help you regain your confidence and treat your skin to some real TLC.
