Stretch Marks in Pregnancy

Wondering whether you might end up with stretch marks while carrying your little one?  Relax! All expecting moms have the same question on their minds. Stretch marks in pregnancy are fairly common, but you can take some measures to avoid them!

When do stretch marks appear in pregnancy?

Those indented, often vertical lines in the skin usually appear in the midsection during pregnancy. But they could appear on legs, chest, bottom, thighs, or hips too. You will most likely start to notice stretch marks around the end of the second trimester, as you move into the beginning of the third trimester, when you are between 6 and 7 months pregnant. However, they might appear sooner as well.


How to prevent stretch marks in pregnancy?

Treat those stretch marks

If stretch marks do appear, you can still treat them, but act quickly.  The Mamma Mia stretch mark oil is just what you need to make those blemishes and scars fade gradually. It contains all natural and organic ingredients – sweet almond oil, avocado oil, vitamin E, wheatgerm oil, and argan oil.  Moreover, it evens patchy skin tone, renders your skin smooth and soft and keeps it moisturised.

If you have sensitive skin that breaks out into rashes often, rest assured you can use this oil safely as it calms irritations and nourishes skin beautifully.  You can use this oil as a preventative measure as well. If you apply it regularly for 9 months, those marks won’t show up at all.


There are numerous benefits of drinking sufficient water such as preventing swelling, aiding in urinary tract infection, and so on. However, if you are well hydrated, it means your skin is properly hydrated and softer too. Simply put, softer skin is less likely to develop stretch marks than dry, rough skin. Check with your doctor on how much water is appropriate for you to drink in a day, as your activity level and the weather can affect the daily water intake goal.

Exfoliate stretch mark-prone areas

Exfoliate your stomach, hips, thighs, chest, bottoms, and legs once a week. Exfoliating sloughs off dry and dead skin cells that could prevent moisturisers and oils from penetrating to the lower layers. It also promotes the growth of new skin cells that can keep these areas soft, supple, and free from stretch marks. You can use natural exfoliants like baking soda and Witch Hazel. These ingredients can be applied directly to your skin and are gentle enough that they won’t damage sensitive skin.


Massage skin

Make sure to take 10 minutes to massage the Mamma Mia stretch mark oil, well into the skin. This process supercharges your body’s stretch mark prevention potential. Massaging keeps the skin supple and elastic, ensures the oil penetrates deeply, and breaks up any stretch marks that may have started to form.
