Best Belly Products for Mamas-To-Be
According to Gallardo’s Instagram post, she states:
“Calling all mamas-to-be! This week I’m sharing my favorite belly products… from butter to oils to balms, organic, coconut-based, luxurious + more! ????????????”
Along with Kapuluan, Gallardo features all organic products from Kora Organics, The Spoiled Mama, Honest, and Earth Mama Organics in this segment.
Coconut Oil for Pregnancy
Regarding pregnancy, it’s essential to use the best products that only help you as a mother and is safe for your growing belly! For example, you can use Kapuluan Coconut Oil as a belly oil for stretch marks, cellulite, and itchiness during pregnancy.
Gallardo explains why it’s essential to prioritize the belly during pregnancy:
“Most of us [mamas] prioritize belly care because everyone fears the dreaded stretch marks. So, we all try to do whatever we can to prevent them. But, even though we know that they are most likely inevitable, we can still do things to make sure our skin stays hydrated and healthy during our pregnancy to improve our odds.”
Gallardo also points out that certain factors play a role in how bad your stretch marks are:
“The biggest factor is our genetics and our skin type. When you’re pregnant, your skin is stretched a lot quickly. So everyone’s skin responds differently. But that’s not to say that using belly butter and belly oils can’t help. Moisturizing the skin during pregnancy helps the skin deal with those rapid changes your body’s going through. Keeping your skin moisturized can help promote skin elasticity, which can help minimize the odds of getting stretch marks. And it also helps with that itchy feeling that many of us get towards the end when our bellies are stretched to the limit.”
Gallardo states in the video:
“Kapuluan Coconut Oil is for those who prefer a coconut oil-based product. Kapuluan is a fan fave for celebrities like Shay Mitchel. It’s pure, raw, cold-pressed organic coconut oil from the Philippines. It’s silky smooth and has a subtle smell. And the oil absorbs quickly into the skin. It’s rich in Vitamin E and antioxidants. But the best part is that for every unit sold, they plant a coconut palm tree in the Philippines. The new trees help coconut farmers recover from the destruction of tropical storms, contributing to sustainable agriculture and supporting the antidote for global warming.”
