The Mama Mio Tummy Rub Stretch Mark Oil ($35) is proven to work, because it has very high levels of Omega 3, 6 and 9. Plus, it has Vitamin E found in Sweet Almond Oil, Borage Oil, Wheatgerm Oil, and Rosehip Seed Oil. This ensures superior protection against pregnancy stretch marks, while deeply nourishing the skin with the richest and most healing oils. It’s better to use than mineral-based oils that contain parabens and other harmful chemicals.
I’m an avid fan of the Mama Mio products. Therefore, I knew that I wouldn’t be disappointed with this product. I’ve always had barely noticeable stretch marks on my hips and breasts. This is due to being overweight as a teenager. Thankfully, I didn’t experience additional stretch marks during my first pregnancy. I’m now pregnant with my second child and I might not be as lucky the second time around. Therefore, I’ve been using this product faithfully by applying it once a day. This is recommended during the early part of your pregnancy. During the later months of pregnancy, they recommend using this product twice a day.
I’m not sure how well it will work later on, but I will most definitely be buying another bottle! It’s a bit pricey, but worth it. It gives my skin the perfect amount of moisture without a tinge of greasiness. Even if it weren’t oil geared for stretch marks, I’d still use it since it’s deeply moisturizing. It also has a beautiful, delicate scent that is uplifting.
Personally, I wouldn’t depend on this product alone. I also recommend drinking plenty of plain water or coconut water to further aid hydration. It also helps to stay active. Even if you’re not a fan of pregnancy yoga or other type of exercise, it’s essential to at least to take a walk everyday. Exercise also is one of the most effective ways of minimizing stretch marks.
