Prevent Stretch Marks the Natural Way with DreamBelly Butter
DreamBelly Butter is designed to help protect and nourish your skin as it stretches to accommodate your growing belly during your pregnancy.
Stretch marks are caused by little tears that occur in the dermis, the middle layer of the skin that contains the collagen and elastin fibers that help to maintain the structural integrity of your skin. Unfortunately, the hormonal changes and rapid weight gain that are a normal part of your pregnancy are a lethal combination when it comes to healthy skin, which is why so many women see stretch marks appear during pregnancy. The dramatic (although expected) hormonal changes that occur during pregnancy impact the ability of the dermis to form collagen and elastin fibers, which, in turn, makes it difficult for your skin to maintain its resiliency. As a result, when the skin is forced to stretch in response to rapid weight gain, it is unable to do so without tearing. These little tears that occur in the skin cause the appearance of unsightly lines – stretch marks – that are red and purple, then gradually fade to white or silver over time.
Of course, the conditions that cause stretch marks during pregnancy are normal and healthy, and cannot be avoided. And, unfortunately, some women are simply more susceptible to stretch marks due to a genetic predisposition. Therefore, the only hope for preventing stretch marks during pregnancy is to keep your skin as hydrated and supple as possible.
