Stretch Marks

#8 Stretch Marks

Stretchmarks are often associated with pregnancy since time immemorial. These pink streaks are usually found around the stomach, breasts, or hips area. These are the areas where you gain weight easily as the skin is stretched and snapped during pregnancy.

You may notice them when you are more than 12 weeks pregnant. This may be a cause of concern for many women, especially in the US as it hinders them from revealing their skin.

They usually disappear or fade away on their own after the delivery in some women. Regular use of essential fatty oils, massaging of skin, applying some ointments, and watching your weight helps in preventing stretch marks post-delivery.
