The importance of skincare during pregnancy

During pregnancy, it is normal to experience dry or stretched skin with increased sensitivity. In order to sustain your growing baby, moisture is sucked from your skin, since every extra drop is needed to help the baby grow. Not only your belly can start to itch but also your arms and feet.

You shouldn't use anti-itch ointments that contain cortisone or hydrocortisone while you're pregnant as they may get into your blood stream and harm the baby. It is safer to use natural gentle soaps and rich body creams to nurture and moisturize your skin.

Using body creams and lotions as part of your skincare routine can help avoid itchy skin and stretch marks later. Studies have shown that soft, hydrated skin doesn’t tend to develop stretch marks as much as dry skin does.

One of the things that could be beneficial for avoiding stretch marks is collagen that helps keep your skin strong and elastic. The key trigger to accelerate the production of collagen and elastin is Vitamin C.

Cammellatte's Body Lotion is infused with Camel Milk which contains a high amount of naturally occurring vitamin C, and many other vital vitamins and minerals. It can be used on the most delicate skin to feel hydrated and nurtured. And it's all natural! 🍀
