Emu oil and breast care and chapping
Why is breast care important?
Breasts are very fragile mammary glands, particularly when expecting a child. At the onset of pregnancy, breasts become heavier and the canals that bring milk to the milk ducts multiply in the mammary glands. Breasts become stretched and painful, particularly in the first trimester.Read more
There are simple measures you can take on a regularly basis to facilitate your pregnancy and maintain the appearance of your breasts in the long term.
How can I take care of my breasts?
Wearing a bra throughout your pregnancy is vital if you want to remain comfortable and minimize the constraints you fee. It is even recommended to change your bra size often (if needed) so that it evolves at the same time as your breasts. A well-fitting bra will support your breasts without changing their natural location and not leave any marks.
Growing breasts can also cause stretch marks. In order to prevent stretch marks, it is important to maintain your skin’s elasticity by moisturizing it often.
A simple daily exercise can also help to tone your breasts. Raise your elbows on each side until they are parallel with your chest. Press your palms firmly together for 30 seconds.
Finish each shower with a jet of cold water on your breasts; this helps to activate your blood circulation, firm up the epidermis and soothe the heavy feeling you have.
Whether or not you are pregnant, avoid smoking and alcohol. Remove your bra every night before going to bed, protect your breasts from the sun, and be sure to have them regularly examined by a doctor once you are in your thirties.
