As much as I tried to prevent stretch marks during my pregnancy – the inevitable happened and my stomach was marked up by my active baby. When she was born, I was looking for something that lessened the marks, while also working as a rich moisturizer. I was amazed by Mustela‘s safe and unique range of products that I continued to use during my second pregnancy. Safe for even the most delicate skin, here are a few of my favorite products from Mustela.
Keep your skin moisturized and stretch-mark free with Mustela 9 Months Stretch Marks Double Action ($41.00; Sephora.com). Containing Elastoregulator (a soy peptide derivative), this all-over cream helps strengthen skin elasticity to prevent and minimize new and recent stretch marks during pregnancy – especially in sensitive areas (breasts, abdomen, hips, and upper thighs). It also has a light and creamy texture and it is has sophora japonica that stimulates the skin, considerably minimizing recent stretch marks. The cream is also Hypoallergenic – specially formulated to minimize the risks of allergic reaction and it is completely safe during breastfeeding
Now that you’re stretch-mark free, ensure that your skin stays soft as a baby’s behind with Mustela Bebe Hydra Bebe Body Lotion ($14; Saks). Made with a combination of almond oil, jojoba oil, and shea butter, this great smelling cream moisturizes and hydrates during and beyond your pregnancy.
After you welcome your bundle into the world, keep that new baby smell fresh with Mustela Dermo-Cleansing Gel ($16.50; Nordstrom.com). Designed for newborns, this soap-free formula cleanses the hair and body without irritation. This soap-free formula works by softening the skin as it helps to soothe irrations. It is also Hypoallergenic and tested by dermatologists. For on-the-go messes, keep you and baby looking your best and smelling even better with Mustela Facial Cleansing Cloths ($8.00; Destination Maternity). I love these disposable, one-step cleansing cloths are perfect for baby’s delicate face to keep it clean, moisturized and soothed without drying alcohol.
