Treating stretch marks during mommy makeover

Did the title give the fact that I didn't write the post away? As regular readers know, from time to time I will give space for things I do not write about from a personal point of view. This is one. Happy Wednesday!

There's nothing better in life than bringing another human being into this world and watching him or her grow into the person they'll be the rest of their lives. But being a mommy comes with a little wear and tear that might not come to mind when you first hear that you're pregnant. Like wrinkles, saggy skin, stretch marks, and sagging breasts.

Perhaps that's why mommy makeovers have become so popular. They allow mommies everywhere to feel and look great. You're proud of your kids, and now they can be proud of you, too!

While we'll be focusing on getting rid of unwanted stretch marks, we'll also be recommending some additional procedures that can really take your mommy makeover from cool to wow!

Drink Plenty of Water

Water is your skin's best friend. It helps to keep it looking healthy and moisturized, as well as improves elasticity (thusly helping with wrinkles and fine lines) and can help keep your skin healthier and therefore more free of acne! But how does this help with stretch marks? True, it won't chase them away, but it will help to reduce their appearance and leave your skin looking fabulous.

Cocoa Butter & Lotions

Cocoa butter has long since been marketed to pregnant women to help reduce stretch marks. But lotions - especially cocoa and coconut-based lotions - will all help to keep your skin hydrated, leading to a reduction in visibility of stretch marks. Any hydration-rich, moisture-lock lotion will help with treat stretch marks.

Essential Oils

There are many essential oils out there that can help reduce the look of stretch marks. Some of the most popular essential oils to help treat stretch marks are Helichrysum oil (also known as everlasting oil), castor oil, rosehip oil, patchouli oil, sage oil, neroli oil, and lavender oil. Of course, you should always consult with your doctor before you try out essential oils. Especially if you are pregnant or breastfeeding. Be cautious and avoid essential oils that are derived from plants you're allergic to.

Skin Procedures

Currently, the only way to treat stretch marks surgically is with abdominoplasty, or "tummy tucks". It's a great and effective way to immediately ditch the stretch marks. And when you get a great doctor, you get a great experience. A great practice will also typically allow for financing, making the experience even more enjoyable and stress-free.

Complete the New Look

Getting rid of those pesky stretch marks doesn't have to be the end of your mommy makeover. While you're hitting up your mommy makeover wishlist, go big! After all, these aren't things you have to do all at once (although you can likely pair up a lot of them to save yourself some time!) Go ahead and treat yourself with the same TLC you show your kiddos and spouse with these awesome "add-ons"!

- A fresh new haircut can do wonders. It gives you a whole new look without having to do much else. You can pencil it in at your convenience and it can help you ditch the dreaded mom bun! Be happy to fix your hair up. It's not an annoyance, it's a way to show off your personal flair!

- Treat yourself to a paraffin wax mani-pedi. This leaves your hands and feet feeling absolutely amazing. It's also a relatively cheap way to feel great, as it won't cost you very much at all. Follow it up with some deep tissue massage and you're sure to feel like a million bucks, even though you won't spend even a fraction of that.

- While you're getting your mani-pedi on, opt for the semi-permanent makeup treatment. This will save you extra time in the mornings and before date nights. You'll look put together longer and with less effort - so you can still chase after those little pitter patters and look amazing!

- Breast augmentations are a great way to recapture that pre-baby body, or get the body you've always wanted to have. It can help you gain a level of confidence you might never have thought possible. You've ditched the stretch marks, now you can enhance your bust line.

- Lastly, a newer procedure can give you that bikini-ready look permanently. Brazilian butt enhancements can give you that complete hot mommy look even when you don't have the time to hit the gym!
