Beauty Secret Revealed! :)

Feeling celebrity! hehehe :) The idea of writing a post about my beauty secret was sparked by my friend Debbie, the beautiful wife of Dana, when she commented once on my post on pregnancy about my tummy having no stretchmarks at all. Yes, that's true. Not a single one. Not bragging though, but I guess I am just one of those blessed ones. Yohooo! hehe :) They say it's in the genes. If your mother has stretchmarks, then most likely, you're predisposed to having them yourself. Well, you see, my Mom has stretchmarks. And ironically, I don't. Ok, what is my secret? I have been using this product since the day I got pregnant with my first pregnancy up until now. It's the Tree Hut Shea Body Butter. I bought it at Walmart for around 5 bucks. What I do is I apply it liberally on my belly, hips, buttocks, thighs, and upper arms every after taking a bath, and every night before going to sleep. Tree Hut Shea Butter comes in different fragrances such as Brazilian Nut, Coconut Lime, Almond and Honey, and Original Shea, which is what I'm using. There you go. It may, or may not work for you, but it certainly did for me. Well, you know what? If you do have stretchmarks, who cares? They are a reminder of your glorious journey through motherhood. :)

yeah, they say that Shea Butter and Cocoa Butter both have ingredients that can minimize visibility of stretchmarks and in some cases, prevents them too. i haven't experienced being pregnant but i'm using this lotion called Palmer's and it also has Cocoa Butter as it's main component. this is also to prevent/minimize appearance of stretchmarks because i'm slowly losing weight.

i dont know if we have it here in Manila but i'll definitely look for this when i go to LA this yr. thanks for sharing your secret. :-)
