The body experiences many changes during the nine-month S-T-R-E-T-C-H of pregnancy and one of the unfortunate changes is the development of cellulite on your buttocks and thighs. Cellulite has five major contributing factors to its development. The first and the biggest culprit is fat. During pregnancy, the body produces more estrogen in one day than a non-pregnant woman will produce in three years! Estrogen causes the body to store more fat and thins out the skin by breaking down the delicate collagen and elastin fibres. This pulls the skin down and creates a dimpling look on the surface of the skin. The other factors are poor blood circulation, water retention, toxin build up and slack skin.
Moms to be are very restricted in terms of the products they can use for cellulite because not all products are safe to use in pregnancy. Mio and Mama Mio are the leaders in skin fitness and pregnancy skincare and all our products are pregnancy and baby safe because of our No Nasties policy. Our promise to moms are that the ingredients we have selected are clean, safe, pure and in their most concentrated form!
Here are two products from Mio Skincare that you can use to help banish your cellulite during pregnancy:
