Some women seem to be under the impression that stretch marks are due to our genetics and that there is not much we can do about it - this is a myth! It is true that our vulnerability to stretch marks can be genetic, but we can certainly prevent the prominence of the stretch marks with the regular use of a natural oil massage starting from as early as pre-conception.
What oils to use:
You can either choose to use one of these oils, make your own mixtures, or mix it up throughout the pregnancy, they each have different beautiful properties within them for your skin.
Not only can we prevent stretch marks, but we can use oils such as jojoba, avocado, coconut, shea butter and more to reduce the appearance of scarring, keeping in mind that stretch marks do fade over time, they rarely stay as prominent as they are as the first few months after birth.
Surely these marks are nothing but beautiful reminders of the journey that we went through to bring our child into the world. It's all about perception, so our attitude towards them can be the most important thing!
These self-care rituals create not only a better connection with your body, but with your baby too.
