Exfoliation is the first step in your body-care programme. When used once or twice a week, Clarins Exfoliating Body Scrub has three main benefits.
It rids the skin of impurities and dead surface skin cells leaving it immediately softer and smoother.
It encourages cellular renewal and makes skin firmer and more resistant.
It makes the skin more receptive to body care products applied afterwards.
Gently concentrate on the areas most prone to stretching and therefore most likely to develop stretch marks (lower abdomen, tops of thighs, buttocks, breasts).
Avoid Stretch Marks
During pregnancy, skin tone is pushed to the limit.
The skin’s elastic fibres are tight and risk splitting, leaving marks. These marks are at first blue-red in colour, gradually turning pink and slightly shiny, before turning white.
Stretch marks are influenced by hormones and occur more frequently in young women, particularly from puberty to around age 30. They often appear after rapid weight gain.
Once they have appeared, stretch marks are impossible to get rid of but they can be diminished over time with Clarins Stretch Mark Minimizer.
Prevention is the best weapon. To avoid them appearing, it is very important to prepare your skin for this natural stretching by making it twice as supple and more resistant.
Soften and nourish your skin
and help avoid stretch marks.
Stretch Mark Minimizer helps avoid stretch marks by boosting the skin’s resistance and helping it as it stretches on sensitive areas (abdomen, hips, thighs, breasts).
It moisturizes, nourishes and softens the skin.
It helps to reduce the appearance of existing stretch marks by diminishing their pink colour.
Thanks to the immediate comfort it provides, relieving the feelings of discomfort and tightness, using it twice a day is a pleasure.
Its rich, non-oily texture can be applied morning and/or evening by massaging onto areas most likely to develop stretch marks. Its neutral fragrance is ideal during pregnancy, when women might be more sensitive to smells.
Firm and tone skin
Tonic Body Treatment Oil is the essential product to accompany you throughout your pregnancy.
It is formulated with 100% pure plant extracts (rosemary and mint) which help tone and stimulate, and nourishing hazelnut oil with antioxidant vitamin E which leaves skin feeling super-soft.
Apply Tonic Body Treatment Oil every day to the whole body. Ideally, take a cool shower afterwards and pat skin gently with a towel to dry.
