Tiger stripes, angel scratches, glitter marks——whatever you want to call them, stretch marks are one of the most common skin differences a pregnant woman will notice. To get to grips with your new lines, slather on some of these hydrating creams.
Stretch marks can happen to anyone at any time. Gone are the days where we all struggled and strived for body perfection (no such thing—there never was and never will be).
Today, it’s all about embracing the skin we’re in. Instead of staring at your stretch marks with disappointment, build resilience and accept that, yes, your body is going to change.
Stretch marks are going to happen, and things are going to sag. Meh! Of course, that kind of acceptance isn’t going to happen overnight; it’s a work in progress. But there are little things you can do along the way to help build up your confidence.
Stretch marks are completely normal, but if you’re looking to help treat your stretch marks during pregnancy, it’s time to educate yourself all about them. A lot of the time, how visible and deep your stretch marks are comes down to the genetics lottery.
If your mum and nan experienced a lot of new lines during pregnancy, chances are, you will too. The best stretch mark cream for pregnancy uses a blend of nourishing oils, vitamins, and peptides to help repair the skin, prevent itching, and keep you feeling hydrated and nourished.
