Soothing Itchy Stretch Marks
One of the annoying things women experience when they’re pregnant are the itchy stretch marks. Women will say that having stretch marks are bad enough what more if you get them getting itchy. Here are some easy remedies for itchy stretch marks.
Massage the areas that have stretch marks with baby oil. You can do this after you take a shower or a bath. You can wipe off excess oil with a towel.
Ask your doctor if you can take Vitamin E. Vitamin E is good for the skin and it will make your skin healthier, more moisturized. If you cannot take Vitamin E orally, you can always buy Vitamin E lotion which you can put directly on your skin.
Cocoa butter is said to be very good stretch mark soothers. You can use this if baby oil, and Vitamin E lotion won’t work.
Don’t forget to take lots of fluids. Drinking water keeps your skin moisturized as well. Not to mention, it is good for you and your baby’s overall health.
