It is said that at least half of all pregnant women will get stretch marks, an outward sign to the world that your body has done something amazing.
Creams containing vitamin E are now widely accepted as one of the best defences against developing stretch marks. This is why the new BetterYou Magnesium Body Butter and Lotion contain vitamin E along with Magnesium Oil, shea butter, cocoa butter and coconut oil. The formulation is deeply rich and intensely moisturising, even better it is perfect for during pregnancy and nursing.
The luxurious formulation keeps skin well hydrated and supple, helping to improve its ability to easily stretch as bump and baby grow. It also adds a little bit of pamper time to every day with the luxurious texture and sensual smell.
Stretch marks are something that expert dermatologist and cosmetic surgeon, Dr. Dendy Engelman is often asked about in clinic…
“Thick creams that keep the skin well hydrated can be effective in increasing the skins ability to resist tension when it is stretched; this means the skin maintains its elasticity and its ability to snap back into place”
The formulation also helps to gently increase the body’s magnesium levels. Magnesium is very important for both mother and baby. We are actually born with twice as much magnesium within us as calcium. This enables us to leave the narrow birth canal without injuring ourselves and is the reason why children’s skin is so elastic, they are so flexible and they heal so well.
