Massage in two to three times daily, from the beginning of pregnancy up to the end of the breastfeeding period, using with light, circular movements over tummy, thighs, bottom and breasts.
- 77% Smoother skin Tested after four months
It is ideal to begin preparing and strengthening the skin of your tummy, breast and thighs as early in your pregnancy as possible. Weleda’s Stretch Mark Massage Oil contains an expert combination of sweet almond oil, vitamin E rich wheatgerm oil and organic arnica to improve elasticity and help prevent stretch marks. At the same time, its exquisitely delicate fragrance of rose, neroli and myrrh gently envelops you and brings about a feeling of comfort, calm and joy. It is no wonder we hear of many mums continuing to use this oil long after pregnancy ends!
Consciously applying this oil as a nurturing massage ritual is a simple and powerful way to connect with your baby. By the end of the second month of pregnancy your baby’s skin, as the primary sensory organ, already has a fully developed sense of feeling and touch. Use rhythmical circular movements over your tummy, around your breasts, and flowing figures of eight movements over the upper thighs and buttocks. This warms the tissue and brings a sense of calm and peace to you both.
If during the second trimester, you start to notice a brown line running down from your belly button, don’t worry, this is called linea nigra. Like melasma, this pregnancy pigmentation is as a result of increased hormones, and usually disappears after pregnancy.
