Palmer's Cocoa Butter

Being pregnant is a blessing but we can't always be pleased with all the changes our body's experiencing. From our barely there tummy to a full grown baby bump, our skin suffers so much stretching that's why the more we have to take care of it. I am not advertising Palmer's cocoa butter products, I am just simply sharing the things I am using to keep my skin healthy all throughout the pregnancy. Some ladies are fortunate enough not to have stretchmarks (just like my mom) but most get a lot. So I made sure I included these items in my shopping lists, of course I have to take care of myself too =P It's better to feel beautiful still even pregnant. Agree or not?

What is stretch mark? According to wikipedia:

"Stretch marks or striae (singular stria), as they are called in dermatology, are a form of scarring on the skin with an off-color hue. They are caused by tearing of the dermis, and over time can diminish but not disappear completely. Stretch marks are often the result of the rapid stretching of the skin associated with rapid growth (common in puberty) or weight gain (e.g. pregnancy or muscle building) or in some cases, severe pulling force on skin that overcomes the dermis's elasticity.[citation needed]

Stretch marks may also be influenced by hormonal changes associated with puberty, pregnancy, muscle building etc.[1] Medical terminology for these kinds of markings includes striae atrophicae, vergetures, stria distensae, striae cutis distensae, striae gravidarum (in cases where it is caused by pregnancy), lineae atrophicae, striae distensae, linea albicante, or simply striae."

Welcome back dear!!! How was your break? I am doing fine, thanks! just feeling heavier by the day! lol

Stretchmarks can't be avoided during pregnancy but some are really blessed not to have. I use Palmer's in different varieties from soothing oil all the way to lotions to aid my stretching tummy skin.

It can't really work in wonders like totally stretchmarks disappear or none at all but it really helps. =)
