Avoiding Stretch Marks
During pregnancy avoiding stretch marks seems to be one of the most important things that a first time mum wants to do.
It is also one of the most difficult to achieve. There is a big genetic component in the likelihood of getting stretch marks.
So what is the cause of the stretch marks?: it is essentially the cells of your skin rupturing as they are overstretched and this then leaves scarring in the form of marks commonly known as stretch marks. How elastic your skin cells are will determine, if you will get stretch marks and how severe they maybe.
This is the reason why it is so important to moisturise effectively during your pregnancy. In particular those areas of your body, that are likely to grow with your baby – tummy, breasts and thighs, are the main areas that are effected by stretch marks.
