Get Rid of Stretch Marks Naturally

Keep your skin in top condition throughout pregnancy to avoid stretch marks

Becoming a mother is amazing, but if there's one downside to pregnancy it's the short- and long-term effects that it can have on your body. Stretch marks are often top of women's lists of fears when it comes to worrying about how their body will change during pregnancy. Stretch marks are, as the name suggests, caused when the skin is forced to stretch too quickly or too much and can appear as unsightly, jagged red marks, although over time these will fade to a silvery-gray colour.

However, stretch marks are avoidable. They key is to keep your skin in top condition right from day one of your pregnancy, using rich moisturisers to ensure that the skin is supple and elastic enough to grow at the required rate, without being 'over-stretched'. Vitamin E is one of the best intensley hydrating ingredients and is perfect for pregnant tummies, along with other rich and creamy moisturisers such as shea butter, cocoa butter and aloe juice.

Our best-selling Hip, Thigh & Tummy Butter is 100% natural and contains all of those ingredients plus many more, blended together to create a deeply nutritious all-over moisturiser that works to intensly hydrate and repair the skin's surface and texture. When used regularly, it greatly reduces the likelihood and appearance of stretch marks.

It's never too late to start using our Hip, Thigh & Tummy Butter - it can also be used on existing stretch marks to fade and reduce their appearance, whilst also making it less likely that more will appear. This 100% natural, organically-enriched cream is also perfect for post-pregnancy care and over time will minimise caesarian scars and thread veins.

Hip, Thigh & Tummy Butter, £22.95

How to Look After Baby's Skin in Winter

The new Thea Baby Naturals range - 100% natural skincare for infants

My youngest son was born at 7am on the 26th December, about 5 days late. I went into labour on Christmas Day, fortunately very late in the day so my family were still able to enjoy the Christmas feast that my mother had prepared for us all! My baby came quickly and I was only in hospital for a couple of days.

I knew from the experience with my first child how to look after my new son's skin. For the first few weeks  I only used water to cleanse and bathe him, then after a few weeks I would add a single drop of Lavender Essential Oil to the tepid water and bathed him in that.

With both of my sons, once they were a few months old I began to introduce more skincare, using only natural skincare ingredients such as Olive and Coconut Oil. My mother used a lot of Coconut Oil when I was growing up so I was familiar with its beneficial skincare properties.

I would add a drop of Chamomile and of Lavender to their bathing water. These were the days when Natural and Organic Skincare Products such as the Thea Baby Naturals range were not readily available so if you wanted a natural alternative you had to make your own home-made concoctions!

Thea Baby Naturals Jojoba and Chamomile Shampoo, only £6.95

Lavender is also great for pregnancy - a few drops in warm bath water can relieve muscle pain and tension, plus it is a fabulous ingredient for children who suffer from skin infections as well as being a great natural healer.

The rule to remember is never to use undiluted essential oils directly on the skin. One or two drops in tepid water or in a carrier oil such as Olive or Coconut Oil is generally sufficient to give the desired effect.

Thea Skincare products contain special blends of essential oils suited to different skin types.

Thea Baby Naturals the newest addition to the Thea Skincare range, containing essential oils, vitamins and natural moisturisers to protect and hydrate your baby's delicate skin.

All Thea Baby Naturals products are suitable for even the most sensitive baby skin and are pH balanced to suit the pH levels of both newborn and growing babies, giving them healthy, glowing skin.

All babies are special but there is something particularly joyful about having a Christmas Baby!
