When I got pregnnat with Ykaie,I didn’t have any stretch marks. Somebody told me that I should use cocoa butter and lotions with cocoa butter in order to prevent it. So I bought tubs of cocoa butter and applied it regularly in my tummy area. After my first trimester, I noticed that there aren’t any stretchmarks appearing.
The things is I wasn’t so fond of the cocoa butter then because it was too sticky and it feels hot in my skin. Remember how we were when we were pregnant? Yes, It was always so hot and the cocoa butter just makes it more uncomfortable, so I stopped using it.
Stretch marks didn’t appear up until my 9th month where they appeared one by one. I was disappointed in myself for not being able to stick to my cocoa butter regimen. I knew I could’ve prevented it from appearing.
Why do stretchmarks appear in the first place? Stretch marks appear because the skin becomes resilient and collagen production becomes slower as we age.
I’ve seen stretchmarks appear on teenagers but you can see them mostly on adults specially those who got pregnant. They are prevalent specially in the tummy area, where the skin stretches the most during pregnancy.
(Pardon my dry hands…heehee…)
I’m glad I received this Celeteque Maternity Anti-Stretch Mark Cream to review last week. If used regularly, this will help the prevention of future stretch marks and reduce the appearance of existing ones. It has skin firming agents such as Elastonyl and Alchemilla Vulgaris Extract that help protect the tone and elasticity of the skin. Aside from that, it also has Phyto Collage and Shea Butter to help the skin more pliant.
What I love most about this is that it is not sticky and it doesn’t feel hot on your skin. It’s just like using your regular lotion and is easily absorbed by the skin.You just have to apply it in a circular motion on prone areas such as the abdomen, arms, hips and thigh both in the morning and before bedtime.
Celeteque Maternity Anti-Stretch Mark Cream is available at all Watson’s, SM Department Store, and Robinsons Department Store for only ₱445.00
