Three common problems during pregnancy

26 January 2021

With all the happiness that pregnancy brings generally comes more often than not its bunch of “marks” on the body. Although these are natural and harmless to the health of the woman & the baby, they are still uncomfortable for some.

Here, we’re not only talking about the stretched belly and the aspects that are affected – taste, mood, smell, hairiness, etc.!

We’re talking about marks left on the body, and more specifically on its tissues.

The first thing you need to know is that hormonal changes are the main responsible factors. No woman is exempt. Alas!

Here are three common problems that women face during pregnancy:

Water retention
Why does a woman who has never suffered from water retention suddenly find herself with it?

It makes sense. Believe us!

You won’t learn anything from the fact that over time, babies form and grow. And it’s all inside the belly. Pretty limited, right?!

It compresses the tissues, blood vessels & organs, which restricts good blood & lymphatic circulation.

There is therefore an abnormal accumulation of fluid that forms & stagnates mainly in the legs, but also in other parts of the body such as the calves, arms, fingers & feet.

Thus, it is almost inevitable!

Fortunately, it is possible to use beauty tools such as the O’terra roulette & matcha firming balm to provide deep relief & massage. This drains the tissues, activates blood circulation & reduces water retention. A “must”!

Cellulite is already a problem for almost all women, but it must also increase during pregnancy!

Estrogen – and prolactin – are the main hormones responsible for this sudden increase in cellulite during this period of life.

To try to explain this simply, they are there to prepare the woman’s body for postpartum & breastfeeding. These hormones therefore store fat and build up energy reserves, which unfortunately result in the formation of fat deposits.

Fortunately, we have a solution! The use of the famous O’terra body suction cups are ideal for reducing the appearance of cellulite. To do the treatment properly, they need to be combined with the matcha firming balm – ideally after using the roulette – which we love for its firming effects. Not only does this balm make the suction cups glide, it also has effects on body drainage, mineralization & toning, heavy legs, overweight, fatigue, stress and tension in everyday life.

Once again, a “must”!


Stretch marks
Inevitably, the belly skin stretches during pregnancy and in many cases causes stretch marks. But why do some women have stretch marks while others don’t? Chance? Heredity? Previous experience? Fate?

It’s simple: good skin elasticity.

O’terra nourishing silky butter has been specially developed to improve the skin’s elasticity and thus prevent stretch marks. In addition to having an incredible texture, this butter is “slow penetrating” into the skin. It therefore acts long and effectively!

Do we really have to repeat it again?! It’s a “must”!

Of course, some parts of the body that have not been properly hydrated can cause stretch marks. Combining a dermaroller with butter helps to reduce their appearance. The dermaroller has proven to be an effective beauty tool to stimulate collagen, improve the skin’s texture and make the products penetrate deep into the skin in order to get the most out of their benefits. The nourishing butter is very repairing!

All the products recommended in this article can be found in the “Baby On Board” set, which is always a pleasure to treat yourself or a mom-to-be!

Finally, while they are not recommended during pregnancy, clinic treatments can be restarted some time after delivery.
