When a woman is pregnant she faces a lot of physical changes in her body and among them are stretchmarks. These marks appear because the body starts to grow at a very faster rate and since the body is not able to keep up with the changes so it starts stretching the skin mostly in abdomen and buttocks area and sometimes these marks can appear on the breasts area as well. Pregnancy is the most important time of a woman’s life and no woman want to become ugly after this time gets over. Nowadays there are lots of ways by which you can prevent these marks from happening during your time of pregnancy. Since pregnancy is something that is very critical and you have to be extra careful, there is nothing better than using herbal products because they do not affect the baby in any way as they are derived from plants only. There are many herbal products available in the market that can help you avoid ungainly stretch marks during pregnancy. These products can also be used by others as well who are looking for something to prevent these marks.

These are some of the products that you can use:

  • Aloe Vera

Aloe Vera is considered one of the best natural products to deal with mostly all of your skin related problems. It contains collagen which is one of the most important proteins that keeps the skin elastic, tight and youthful. You can use aloe plant or there are many aloe Vera gels available in the market. I personally use Patanjali Aloe Vera gel as it is not greasy and very affordable. You can get a 150ml pack at Rs. 100.

  • Bio-oil

Now I am sure you must have heard about this one and yes it really works. Bio Oil is enriched with the goodness of Vitamin A and E, calendula oil, lavender oil, rosemary oil and chamomile oilwhich helps in reducing stretch marks and leads to a healthy skin. You can start applying this oil in your second trimester onwards. A 60ml pack costs Rs.450.

  • Coconut Oil

Coconut oil is the answer to most of your skin problems. It contains immense moisturizing properties which gets deep into the skin and help nourish the damage. It also contains antioxidants which are good for your skin. You can use your normal coconut oil.

  • Shea and Cocoa butter

You will find a lot of women recommending cocoa butter and Shea butter as they are two of the most relieving and palliative products. Cocoa butter is a natural fat extracted from the cocoa bean. Shea butter is made from the nut of the Karite tree. The fatty acids are extracted from the nuts shell.  There are many cocoa and Shea products out there and these can be used on a daily basis as well for moisturizing purposes.

VLCC Cocoa Butter Hydrating Body Lotion with SPF 15 350 ml costs Rs 250.

Other than these products it is important to maintain a balanced and nourished diet because it’s necessary to remain healthy during pregnancy and also stay hydrated by drinking lots of water. And even if you can’t seem to reduce these marks, don’t worry because it does notmatter as you are beautiful no matter what. For more info visit joy by nature.
