We have all heard the saying, “An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.”
This is especially true when it comes to stretch marks…
…It is far easier to prevent stretch marks from forming than it is to make them disappear.
The 3 Keys to stretch mark prevention are as follows:
Eating a healthy balanced diet,
Following a pregnancy friendly exercise plan,
Moisturizing your skin daily.
Eating right is key to managing your weight.
I know you don’t want to hear this but, according to Web MD, you only need to eat approximately 300 additional calories everyday.
Eating whole grains makes you feel fuller and proper hydration keeps your body from sending you false hunger pains.
I recommend making a point to ask your OBGYN for a meal plan designed for pregnant women on your next visit.
Gradual weight gain will reduce stress on your body and lead to fewer stretch marks.
Maintaining a strong core during pregnancy provides a multitude of benefits…
… Ranging from reducing back pain to preparing your body for the rigors of child birth.
First talk to your doctor and ensure exercising is safe for you and your baby. After receiving the go ahead from your doctor try these 2 low impact core exercises:
• Kneeling Pelvic Tilt.
On all fours with a flat back, tighten the abs and gently arch your back to the ceiling. Don’t let your belly sag down.
• Standing Pelvic Tilt.
Back up to a wall, with your feet three inches out. Tighten your stomach and buttocks and press your low back to touch the wall.
Not only will maintaining an exercising routine will help reduce stress, minimize ankle swelling and burn extra calories, it will also help prevent stretch marks.
The third key to preventing stretch marks is to moisturize your skin everyday.
Using a product that increases elastin in your skin and increases the production of collagen is vital.
Elastin helps skin return to its original position after being poked or pinched.
Collagen gives your skin strength; consequently combatting the normal loss experienced during pregnancy due to hormonal fluctuations is a must.
Through the use of elastin and collagen your skin will be in better shape to adjust to your weight gain and minimize stretch marks.
You are your own most powerful weapon in your fight against stretch marks.
By committing to:
- Eating right
- Exercising (if possible)
- Using the right cream for daily care
You will help your body prevent stretch marks.
