Statistics tell us that 90% of women will develop stretch marks, so how do celebrities like Beyonce and Victoria Beckham manage to keep perfect bodies throughout their pregnancies and in the years following? Many work with a team of personal trainers, nutritionists, dermatologists, plastic surgeons, and make-up artists dedicated to keeping them flawless. Though the average person can’t afford a personal health care team, the techniques used by celebrities are available to all.
From the very beginning of their pregnancy, celebrities start working with personal trainers and nutritionists to create and maintain fitness and diet pregnancy plans. The primary cause of stretch marks is sudden weight gain. The skin stretches too thin and breaks, leaving long lines across the expanded areas. These experts counsel celebrities on how to minimize unnecessary weight gain while still maintaining a healthy body and child.
Celebrity Fitness Tips:
Exercise is one of the most effective ways of fighting stretch marks. Gentle pregnancy fitness routines tighten the skin, making it more resistant to stretch marks, and help you to minimize your pregnancy weight gain. Consider the following simple fitness routine:
- Walk or Jog at least 30 minutes every day.
- Do 20-30 leg lifts 3 or 4 times a week. Lie on your side and slowly lift your upper leg, hold it in place for 4 seconds, and slowly lower it again. Repeat 20-30 times.
- Take a weekly yoga class specifically designed for pregnant women.
