Belly Skin Care During Pregnancy

About 75% – 95% of pregnant women end up developing stretch marks (a.k.a pregnancy marks or striae gradarum) on their bellies. As one of these expecting moms, even while your concerns mostly focus on keeping your baby safe and healthy inside your tummy, you still want to be seen as beautiful as you can be on the outside. Unfortunately, with stretch marks that seem to grow with the baby inside your belly, as well as other skin challenges that call your attention, it may not be easy to feel 100% positive throughout the day.
