Shopping Guide: Natural Stretch Mark Treatments

This post contains affiliate links. Thanks for your support!

Pregnant bellies are beautiful, glowing signs of new life. They are also itchy, tight and susceptible to stretch marks and saggy skin post-childbirth. Stretch marks and saggy skin are mostly genetic, and you can’t completely prevent them. However, you can take some steps to minimize their severity. According to the American Pregnancy Organization, drinking lots of water, making certain changes to your diet and exercise are the best ways to minimize stretch marks. The idea is keep your skin supple and elastic while your belly grows.

The use of pregnant belly balms, oils and creams can help keep your skin supple and hydrated. While they won’t stop stretch marks completely, these products can help with the itchiness and tightness. Below is a list of belly balms and creams that are made with natural and organic ingredients. And they are formulated specifically for pregnant women (see my post on what to avoid during pregnancy for more information). Also, check out my article with more information on dealing with other pregnancy ailments.
