Ways To Prevent Stretch Marks
Expectant mothers have so many things to think about involving the health of their baby during pregnancy. A proper diet and exercise program are just the tip of the iceberg. One thing that is often overlooked are the stretch marks that come along with having a baby. This can be avoided by taking precautionary measures with your skin; before, during and after pregnancy.
According to The American Academy of Dermatology, about 90% of pregnant women will get stretch marks. LAFACE’s Hydrating and Firming Body lotion helps prevent stretch marks. Hydration is key to preventing stretch marks. Coconut oil, vitamin E and shea butter are recommended skin treatments for preventing and fading stretch marks.

One application daily will do the trick.
