When it comes to stretch marks, the question on every expecting mom’s mind is: What works? We turned to skin care expert Lauren Parisier, who along with Kelli Kenny, co-founded basq NYC, an effective, beautiful skin care line to repair damage and revitalize skin. At Motherhood Maternity, we carry exclusive aromas of their Body Boost by basq products, pregnancy specific body butters and oils designed to prevent and repair stretch marks. We asked Lauren for the best tips and tricks to fight stretch marks and improve skin condition and her answer is simple: start with a sugar scrub. Below, Lauren spills on the top three reasons to add an exfoliating sugar scrub to your skincare routine to aid and diminish marks.
Guest Editor: Lauren Parisier, Skin Care Expert & basq NYC Co-Founder
1 – FEELING ITCHY? That’s the sign of deeper damage that will show up a few months later as stretch marks. Don’t Scratch! Scratching only causes more damages to tender, over stretched skin. Instead, try scrubbing. Our Body Boost Sugar Scrub gently sloughs away dry, dead skin for instant relief from itchy skin.
2 – FIGHT MARKS EARLY! Exfoliation triggers skin renewal. As you slough, your skin goes into rebuild mode – building the Collagen and Elastin fibers that keep your skin stronger and more able stretch and rebound – instead of breaking and leaving stretch marks. Our scrub, which comes in Lavender Vanilla and Milk & Honey aromas, nourishes as it smooths for deeper results.
3 – THE SECRET TO A BETTER BOUNCE BACK! Your body stretches all over during pregnancy and the skin on your legs, arms and backside can suffer from post-pregnancy sag. A full body scrub twice a week helps your skin stay strong throughout the big stretch. Exfoliation pushes damage up and out for smoother skin texture, more even tone and saggy skin prevention. Give your skin a head-to-toe boost and start early with the Body Boost Sugar Scrub. The payoff will be a better bounce back post-pregnancy!

I was so pleased to know that Motherhood Maternity not only offered plus size maternity clothes, but was even more excited to see the new revamped collection. The styles are so cute and comfy; I feel like I got a whole new wardrobe! One of my biggest struggles in styling my growing bump has been finding maternity jeans, until I found the jeans at Motherhood Maternity. They are by far my favorite and the best part about them is the fit! The Secret Fit Belly® band fits perfectly without rolling or sliding down and I feel fully supported. I’ve been living in these destructed maternity jeans that work with so many tops and makes any outfit instantly cool. I have been pairing them with another maternity wardrobe staple from the collection, the side ruched maternity tees, and I know I’ll be wearing them long after the baby arrives. They are super flattering and come in a variety of colors. My absolute favorite item from the new line is the Side Ruched Maternity T-shirt Dress. It’s the perfect chic and classic little black dress that can easily be dressed up or down and is a must-have in every expectant mother’s wardrobe.
