There are many amazing changes that happen to your body during pregnancy, and there happens to be a few that are less than ideal. Some of the most significant changes happen as your stomach stretches to accommodate the beautiful life you are growing inside. Stretching skin can become dry, itchy and for some, leave stretch marks when the process is all said and done. After all, your rapidly expanding belly is incubating an extension of you and your partner, so it’s a good idea to treat it kindly.
What is Organic Belly Butter?
Our Zoe Organics Belly Butter is a water-less balm packed with shea butter, rosehip seed oil, avocado oil, coconut oil and calming essential oils. A belly butter can and should be used during pregnancy on the hips, breasts and belly to prevent stretch marks and reduce the itch that is often associated with rapidly expanding skin. It can be continued after your the baby is born to help that skin elasticity bounce right back, and reduce the appearance of existing stretch marks.
What are the Benefits of Organic Belly Butter?
During your pregnancy, keeping the skin hydrated and comfortable can help ensure it doesn’t lose its elasticity. The belly butter deeply penetrates into the skin and keeps it smooth and well-hydrated. You’ll instantly feel the relief in your skin when applied morning and night.
The butter helps to reduce the itch often associated with expanding bellies. Pregnant bellies get itchy because the skin is undergoing a transformation and can quickly dry out. By staying hydrated with plenty of fluids and keeping your skin hydrated, you’ll likely skip over this slightly uncomfortable pregnancy effect.
Belly Butter also helps to relax your entire body with the use of essential oils. Creating a nighttime routine, can help calm you and prepare you for a good night’s sleep. Ask your partner to help apply the belly butter for a relaxing massage.
