Expecatant motherbelles, newlyweds who are eagerly anticipating getting pregnant, and even mothers of one, two, or more kids, let me share one of the best products you should have, (if you haven’t tried them yet) Palmer’s Cocoa Butter Formula. Even before I was pregnant with lil’ Ms. GJG, I prepped myself early on because I have a few stretch marks to begin with. I figured my skin isn’t as elastic so I better hydrate it even before it started to stretch. I know it may sound too OC but believe me, prevention is always better than cure, especially when it comes to our body.
What makes Palmer’s the number 1 brand of Cocoa Butter products worldwide? It contains 100% pure Cocoa Butter and Vitamin E which all help in the process of skin repair, deep hydration and reduces the appearance of scars and stretch marks.
I can still distinctly remember the sweet smelling scent of Palmer’s Cocoa Butter Massage Lotion. I’ve been rubbing it on my tummy the moment I learned I have a bun in the oven five years ago. The creamy consistency makes little go a long way. If you’re too overwhelmed on what product must you use first, may I suggest you a planogram to help you? 🙂
2-3 months into pregnancy use Cocoa Butter Massage Lotion for Stretchmark, SRP Php 475. It helps improve the appearance of stretch marks with a special combination of Cocoa Butter, Vitamin E, Collagen, Elastin, and Shea Butter.
4-5 months pregnant, use CocoaButter Massage Cream for Stretchmark , SRP Php 495. Its a cream perfect for targeted problem areas such as the belly, buttocks and breasts. Formulated to improve elasticity and moisture content of the skin.
4-5 months into pregnancy, apply the Tummy Butter, SRP Php 595. It contains Bio C-Elaste which is widely recommended for stretch marks during and after pregnancy and weight loss. Bio C-Elaste is a powerful combination of Collagen, Elastin, Centella Asiatica, Sweet Almond Oil and Argan Oil. The addition of Lavender creates a soothing and relaxing night time treatment.
6-7 months pregnant, best product to use is the Cocoa Butter Soothing Oil for dry and itchy skin.
After giving birth, don’t fret if you’ve acquired a few stretch marks here and there. Skin elasticity varies from one woman to another, genetics being a contributing factor. What you can do to achieve smoother, and healthier skin is to nourish it by moisturising it. Try Cocoa Butter Formula Firming Butter & Post Natal Firming Lotion.
You can also use Rose Hip Skin Therapy Oil, SRP Php 495. It contains Rose Hip, Sesame & Canola Oil. Rose Hip contains antioxidants that is good for dark spots and scars. While Sesame & canola oil are fatty acids that help protect and hydrate the skin. It helps combat scars, marks, dry and aging skin.
