C-you Later, Scars!‏

Nowadays, it is more common than ever for women to give birth via a Cesarean section. Whether attributed to a women’s individual health or because many women are giving birth later in life, this delivery method is steadily growing in popularity. According to recent studies conducted at Harvard Medical School, “one in three babies is born via C-section, which is a 50% increase over the past decade.” Recognizing the trend, Belli, the world’s safest skincare line available to address the specific issues of pregnant women, new moms and babies, has created the Surgical Scar Reducer, a solution to help new moms reclaim their body post-delivery.

“New moms tend to feel self-conscious about the effect their pregnancy has had on their bodies,” says Annette Rubin a mother and Founder of Belli. “Recovering from giving birth is no walk in the park – but for moms who have undergone a C-section, they now have an additional surgery recovery time to worry about. Added on top of that is an obvious scar.” Belli has created an entire line of safe and effective products to help new moms get their skin back into shape post-pregnancy; and Belli’s Surgical Scar Reducer is a perfect dermatologist-recommended solution to C-section scars and other surgical incisions.

Belli’s Surgical Scar Reducer

This product contains active ingredients of Silicone Gel which has been shown to be effective in reducing in the appearance of scars and surgical incisions and Vitamin E which is well known for its wound healing properties. Best results can be seen if applied daily for four to six weeks after wound has healed completely.

Belli’s Surgical Scar Reducer can also be used to lighten scars or surgical incision of any age.

I am in my second trimester of my pregnancy now and one thing I can’t live without is lotion. I have tried everything trying to keep my skin moisturized and the dreaded itchiness at bay. Belli was kind enough to send me one of their All Day Moisture Body Lotions to try and I am really enjoying it. 

I apply right out of the shower and my skin just drinks it up, they shea butter is a great moisturizes and absorbs quickly. One of my favorite features of this lotion is the essential oils it contains. The most prevalent scent is Lemon Oil which smells just delicious and helps perk me up.  Lemon oil also has the therapeutic quality of calming upset stomachs which any pregnant girl can tell you happen all too often. There is also a lighter note of Chamomile that helps comfort and calm.  A great lotion to help ease a least a few of the pains of pregnancy.

For all the pregnant ladies!

I have a few friends who are pregnant and the age old question has come up can you prevent stretch marks? From what I have researched some Dr’s. say genetics play the largest role and some say you can help prevent them with the various lotions and potions on the market. Of course a large part of prevention is plenty of water and staying in a healthy weight gain range (Hard to do when you HAVE to eat ice cream for two!).

I found if nothing else most of the lotions I tried did help at least ease the itching as my tummy grew. So here are some of the latest and greatest products for your growing tummies.
