Whether it’s a myth or not there are plenty of pregnant ladies out there who swear by using moisturiser during pregnancy to reduce stretch marks. However there is so much contradictory information out there which advises against using skin care products when pregnant it’s difficult to establish what you should and shouldn’t use when trying to protect your baby.
Luckily there are plenty of brands out there that understand this problem all too well and Dermalogica is one of them. Dermalogica is a high quality skin care brand loved all over the world by everyone from the average Joe to the A-List celebs despite the affordable price tag that accompanies their products.
Dermalogica have a huge range of moisturisers that have been used safely during pregnancy for many years. Using a body moisturiser will ensure that your skin remains hydrated and moisturised throughout pregnancy which should help to prevent the dreaded stretch marks from appearing.
Stretch marks often appear because the skin is being stretched beyond a size that it’s comfortable and the elastin is therefore being significantly reduced meaning that the skin is unable to bounce back to its original state. There are plenty of Dermalogica products that can help with this too though as they help to encourage the production of elastin therefore preventing stretch marks.
