Skincare Essentials from Mustela: 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.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.
