Ma routine anti vergetures pendant ma grossesseHello sweet ladies! This is not groundbreaking, every expecting woman keeps fingers crossed so she does not end up as a weird tiger after pregnancy. The key word to keep these nasty stretch marks at bay is
Even before being pregnant, I used to moistururize from head to toe every day, at least once day. During pregnancy, I did it at least twice a day. And here is the results: though I've got a stretch mark-prone skin, I didn't even have one little stripe!
So I'd like to share with you the products I used during these nine months.
To start with: I had a shower twice a day, as usual. With very gentle, soap free washing products.
Here are my faves:
1- L'Occitane en Provence Almond Shower Oil. Great scent and super soft on the skin.
2- Roger & Gallet Shiso Gentle Shower Cream. Sulfate, soap and paraben free! I picked it to pack for the hospital. I've been crazy about its baby-like, soothing scent for years now.
3- Nivea Shower Oil for dry skin. Smells good, plus it's inexpensive.
4- Avene Cold Cream Ultra Rich Cleansing Gel. Super mild for my skin, But I stopped using it after a few weeks, I couldn't stand its scent anymore (Thank you hormones!)
Then I kept my skin moisturized twice (or more!) a day, with oils and and creams . Here are my faves:
1- L'Occitane en Provence Almond Supple Skin Oil (this is an all-time favorite actually!) . It definitely helped keep my skin moisturized and supple.
2- Nivea Extended Moisture for dry to very dry skin. Great Nivea scent, as usual. It REALLY DOES keep your skin moisturized for a long time, no alligator skin after a few hours. I love this body cream!
3- Roger & Gallet Shiso Gentle moisturizing body lotion. Once again, amazing shiso scent and it moisturizes well, not as well as the Nivea one though.
4- L'Occitane en Provence Almond Milk Veil and Almond Firming and Smoothing Milk Concentrate. Great products to maintain a firm and soft skin, but not moisturizing enough.
5- The Body Shop Coconut Beautifying Oil. True-to-life coconut scent, great oil to moisturize and prevent dry, chapped skin.
6- Avene Body Oil, Does a very good moiturizing job as well. But just like the cleansing gel, I just got fed up with its scent.
