Chest before and after childbirth

Pregnancy and breast-feeding - is not a reason to put up with the fact that the resilient and beautiful before the bust will lose its charm.Let's fight for the beauty!
female breast has always been a subject of admiration male half of humanity.In addition, it is assigned for at least an honorable mission - feeding the newborn.However, during this period, the breast can occur most unwanted changes, which are difficult to avoid, but ... it is possible.Our advice to those who want to save postpartum beautiful bust and at the same time to feed the baby with her milk.
First, I would like to dispel the myth that infant feeding necessarily spoil the shape of the breast.This assertion is fundamentally wrong!The change in the shape and elasticity of the bust is much more influenced by the pregnancy and the accompanying hormonal changes in a woman's body.Of course, you can not argue with nature, but some problems can be overcome if you know how to deal with them.
Problem 1: overweight
It was he - the main enemy of the chest.During pregnancy, your weight should follow carefully.Otherwise, striae (stretch marks) can not be avoided!Why is this happening?
At normal body weight chest about a quarter filled with adipose tissue and the remaining three-quarters - glandular.With every extra kilogram of fat in the breast becomes more glandular tissue under the influence of estrogens is growing (as the breast preparing for lactation!), And the amount of skin is still the same ... During pregnancy, this, alas, can not be avoided.However, to take some steps worth.
Regular breast care should start before the skin loses elasticity.So, the main thing - watch your weight.Keep in mind the average during pregnancy a woman should gain no more than 8-10 kg.If you feel you do not fit into this framework, hurry to start a course of exercises to strengthen bust.It is also very effective relief provides cold water.It strengthens and tones the skin, improves blood circulation, makes blood vessels and fiber fabrics on the chest more elastic.On this day do not be lazy to arrange for breast douches.At the same time wipe her washcloth in circular motions (clockwise left chest, right - counterclockwise) and over the entire surface of the nipple to the base of the breast.After showering, rub a towel (so you also prepare the nipples for feeding the child).
Problem 2: stretching the skin
appearance of stretch marks brings a lot of distress to young women.Yet one should not panic.Like any other problem of stretch marks is easier to prevent than to correct.Why is this happening?
striae appear for different reasons.Not the last role is played by hereditary factor.If the skin of women in your family has a weak connective tissue, then, consequently, its cells are not sufficiently flexible, the individual fibers may tear when stretched.This way, not only can occur while waiting for the child, but also at sharp fluctuations in body weight.
second reason is hormones.During pregnancy it is produced in the adrenal cortex cortisol.On the one hand, it maintains the balance of the hormonal system and the other - weakens the function of cells that are responsible for the elasticity of the connective tissue.Furthermore, the degree of elasticity depends on a sufficient number of collagen and elastin.During pregnancy, the activity of cells that produce collagen, weaken, and because of the connective tissue fibers do not withstand the tension and tear.
elasticity of the skin can be with the right nutrition.For skin in the "state" needed minerals and vitamins.Milk, milk and milk products will support the desired level of calcium in the body;meat, grains and beans provide iron, but because tselnomolotogo grain products, fish, eggs - by fluorine.Keep your daily diet were products containing potassium, - tomatoes, bananas, vitamins A and E, as well as unsaturated fatty acids such as soybean oil.
addition to proper nutrition, there is also protection from the appearance of stretch marks treatments.The main task of these manipulations - the stimulation of blood flow.For example, very useful plucking massage.Thumb and index finger gently pinch the abdomen, hips, breasts and buttocks to light redness.Very good to combine this massage with special creams and gels "Stretch."After a contrast shower, jet which you can also massage the skin, prone to the formation of stretch marks, rub the cream in a circular motion.Make plucked weight.This procedure is necessary to perform regularly, starting from the fourth month of pregnancy, twice a day after showering.
Modern cosmetology offers a solution the problem of stretch marks.First of all - gels, creams and lotions, "Stretch."They are able to reduce existing stretch marks, if postpartum not more than a year.Another option - a procedure Microdermabrasion - the alignment of the skin by mechanical exfoliation of solid microcrystals.It helps scarring and treatment by laser beams: stretch marks fade and almost disappear, regardless of the "statute of limitations".However, it is not known whether these results are stable.It is possible, after some time will have to repeat the procedure.
Problem 3: bust fell
vain someone thinks that "spaniel ears" - a diagnosis can not be disinfected.Instead of crying into my pillow and lamenting about changing breast shape, we offer to act!Why is this happening?
reason is the same - to gain weight.The extra kilos are deposited in fatty breast tissue that does not enhance the bust.Breast becomes heavier, stretched ligaments that support it, and after lactation she droops.
not neglect wearing a bra.If the breast is firmly "anchored" during pregnancy, it is possible to avoid sagging.Choosing this type of underwear is better for pregnant women in the stores.Should we count on creams?Definitely, yes!Only manufacturers with its scientific and industrial base, is impossible to create productive creams to correct such a delicate area.With regular use (2 times a day for 2 months to achieve the effect, and then 1 time a day for prevention constantly) cream will increase the elasticity of the skin and tighten "the skin bag."Creams do not work on the glandular tissue and therefore have no contraindications for use.
