It has been 8 weeks since the birth of Amelie and I’d have to say that it has been a helluva enjoyable ride! After the birth of Amelie, I found that my abdominal area still itched for the next 3-4 weeks. Not sure why but I noticed that each time I removed my bengkung or corset, that’s when it itched the most. Coincidentally though, the stretch marks itched as well. I don’t remember having this problem after the delivery of Ashley and Aidan. To counter the itch, I applied Putto Mothers After Repair Serum followed by Putto Mothers After Tightening Gel by Putto Mothers after each bath. I’m not sure if these creams did the trick or the itch naturally went away but the itch did eventually go away.
The After Repair Serum contains natural herbal extracts for stretch marks repair. I’ve been plagued with stretch marks and let’s get real – as much as I want them to disappear forever, it’s never going to go away. However this serum reduces the appearance of stretch marks. This serum comes with a pump applicator and I usually dispense 2 pumps of serum and massage it on my abdominal area – predominantly where my stretch marks are located. Of course my stretch marks are still there and I’m monitoring them to see if they become less and less obvious. The serum has a very pleasant smell and does not leave any greasy residue on the skin. It hydrates my belly pretty well I must say.
After applying the serum, I’d apply the After Tightening Gel on the same areas where I applied the After Repair Serum. This gel contains the one and only NHEB-05™ herbal extracts among others, it contains ingredients that help to nourish, moisturize, soothe and restore skin elasticity gradually to is pre-pregnancy form. I usually squeeze out th gel the size of a 20 sen coin and apply it on my abdominal area. This too has a very pleasant smell and does not leave any stick residue on the skin.
