Let’s face it, stretch marks are a real part of pregnancy whether we like it or not. These little suckers can show up anywhere from your belly to your bottom, and whether they are genetic or not – your skin needs a little extra somethin’ during those growin’ months.
I created this recipe during my pregnancy when I was going through a bottle of lotion a week because my skin was so dry and itchy!
It calls for only a few all natural ingredients, smells amazingly chocolaty, and feels even better on your skin! Use it from head to toe!
1/2 Cup Organic Coconut Oil
1/2 Cup Pure Organic Cocoa Butter
1/2 Cup Pure Organic Shea Butter
1/3 Cup Pure Vitamin E Oil
