I’ve been using a number of products to help prevent stretch marks, so while I’m trying some new products and getting variety… I can’t say for sure which are sure fire for helping – lol. I’m also not sure at what point stretch marks show up, if they do, but I don’t have any yet. I’ve had many people tell me that my diet is also probably helping. In the beginning of pregnancy, I stayed away from essential oils, but I’ve run these products by my midwife and did a little extra research which made me feel better about it. Plus, I’m not using any one of these products daily since I’m switching it up with plain, edible, purely natural products, so I feel safe in my plan. As always though, if you’re pregnant, you should consult your midwife or physician when selecting body care products to use while pregnant. Here are the things I’m using!
Raw Organic Coconut Oil
Simple to use, easy to access since I always have a stash in my kitchen and bathroom, smells awesome, and makes me feel like I’m on a tropical vacation. (My favorite coconut oil and products on the planet.)
Dr. Alkaitis Organic Nourishing Treatment Oil
One of my favorites; this oil has a sultry and hypnotic smell that I cannot get enough of! I will be featuring a lengthy review of their products soon.
Miessence Belly & Breast Balm
Smells nice and it’s specifically for pregnant gals. I will be featuring a lengthy review of some of their products soon.
Sprout Wellness All-Over Cream
Super emollient, which I love. I will be featuring a lengthy review of some of their products soon.
Raw Organic Almond Oil
What can I say? It was in my kitchen so I used it a few times – lol. Smells awesome.
100 Percent Pure Lemon Shea Body Butter
This is decadent and emollient too, and was very happy with it. It’s not in the picture, because I used it up during the earlier months of pregnancy.
Although this post is dedicated to how I’m trying to prevent stretch marks, you can check out information on other eco / animal friendly beauty products I use here. UPDATE! By the way… if I do end up with stretch marks, I will be rockin’ them proudly. No worries about that here!
