Preventing Stretch Marks

What Can Be Done To Prevent Stretch Marks?

The best defense against stretch marks of one is to ensure that skin keeps its maximum elasticity during pregnancy. This is accomplished by keeping skin well-hydrated and supple .

Elastin and collagen fibers within the skin are essential to keep skin tight that is growing, and the stronger they are, the less likely they are to break and leave stretch marks that are resulting. It therefore makes sense to consume foods that are rich in Vitamin C and E, zinc and silica, which help form collagen. Vitamin C particularly is an essential antioxidant that helps protect tissue.

Drinking sufficient water (approximately two litres daily ) is vital so as to help strengthen and revive your skin.


In addition to reducing mood swings, boosting energy levels, improving sleep patterns and improving one, exercise too can help prevent stretch marks. Exercise improves flow, which keeps the skin elastic and able to stretch as it develops.

Maintaining Skin Supple

In addition to making sure that you keep your skin hydrated through eating the right foods and getting enough exercise, then you need to use a topically-applied product such as Bio-Oil which is especially formulated to maximize the elasticity of the skin. Your skin will remain able to elongate and well-hydrated by applying daily in the first trimester throughout pregnancy.
