You can hydrate your skin in risk areas (lower back, thighs, legs, hips, tummy, etc.) and all over your body with natural organic oils or organic body butters (such as shea butter, almond oil, avocado oil, argan oil, wheat germ oil or cocoa butter). Apply morning and evening to clean skin, concentrating on areas that are likely to develop stretch marks. Massage it in well, which is the key to prevention! This promotes micro-circulation and helps the skin stay soft.

Not that in the case of sun exposure, it is important to wear sunscreen, concentrating especially on high risk areas.

Don’t forget about your good habits when the baby arrives! Make sure you continue to eat a balanced and varied diet, and make sure to lose the baby weight progressively rather than too rapidly. Continue to hydrate well in order to maintain good skin elasticity. When your little one arrives, you can also gently start back doing exercises, taking it slowly. You can use cardio to promote good circulation and healthy skin, as well as using strengthening exercises for stronger muscles and tightening up your skin.
