Stretch marks can be a growing concern! That’s why there is Substance Belly Jelly, a rich healing balm designed to intensely moisturize the skin. Packed full of oils high in vitamin E, Substance Belly Jelly increases the skin’s elasticity, allowing it to stretch with your changing body. Rich shea butter, oats, lavender and a special blend of essential oils further nurtures the skin to add that extra ounce of prevention.
Stretch marks can be hereditary; however, women in their second trimester often get symptoms of “itchy belly” and very dry skin, due to the stretching of the growing belly. It will begin to crack, which can be a precursor to stretch marks. The best way to avoid stretch marks, is by taking preventative steps. One of these steps is to ensure that the skin remains elastic through intense moisturizing. The best time to start moisturizing the skin is at the very beginning of pregnancy. Daily applications are highly encouraged. Along with this preventative measure, it is also recommended to drink lots of water and other liquids to encourage the skin’s elasticity to increase its pliability.
