So many things about pregnancy make us feel beautiful. Stretch marks aren’t one of them!
As soon as you become pregnant, hormones intensify, skin starts to stretch, and there are changes in the collagen and elastic tissue that support your skin.
When this happens, many women get stretch marks—not just on their bellies, but also on their boobs, booties, hips, thighs, and lower backs. They first appear as red or pink. At this stage, with immediate attention, you can help them fade. But once they turn white, they become permanent scars, and never fully go away.
The moms behind Leska worked hard to create topical creams, oils, lotions, and butters that help prevent those dreaded stretch marks from happening in the first place—and help keep your skin smooth, strong, soft, and stretch-mark-free.
