What Causes Stretch Marks?

Stretch marks occur when the skin stretches or shrinks quickly, causing our natural collagen and elastin to break. Then as this skin heals, stretch marks are formed. Whether caused by pregnancy, weight loss or hormonal factors, stretch marks will appear different for everyone due to our skin elasticity levels. However, white stretch marks, in the shape of thin lines, are more commonly associated with pregnancy. While most visible on the stomach, they can also appear on the lower back, upper arms and buttock area, making full-body care an essential.

How Do I Prevent Stretch Marks?

During pregnancy, health is the ultimate priority, particularly for your little one. When it comes to skin, we see things holistically and encourage all-around healthy choices. A well-balanced diet and regular hydration are the first steps to well-balanced skin, alongside regular exercise to help stimulate natural collagen – ideal for reducing the look of stretch marks. Using daily sunscreen and reducing your UV exposure are also fundamental. Sun damage can cause skin problems like hyperpigmentation and scarring, making stretch marks harder to treat.

Lastly, a skincare regime tailored to your changing needs is essential. We recommend highly nourishing products, such as body oils, to care for your skin throughout pregnancy.

What Products Can I Use When Pregnant?

 

Why Use Arnica Oil for Stretch Marks?

If you’re looking for the perfect stretch mark oil, think arnica. Derived from a plant, the use of arnica stretches back to the 15th Century. Effective in treating a wide range of conditions, including stretch marks, its known anti-inflammatory properties help to soothe, calm and nourish the skin.

Our Arnica Body Oil heroes this botanical, using a powerful extract with a complementary blend of almond oil, jojoba oil and wheat germ oil. This fatty acid-enriched formula helps cell regeneration and strengthens natural functions, working to reveal a more even-toned appearance.

"Just perfect! 27 weeks pregnant and no stretch marks."
