Special care tailored to mum's needs
For many women, becoming a mother is the most wonderful thing in the world – but it is not without its challenges. For women, pregnancy is not only an emotional roller coaster, the body also undergoes numerous changes.
Hormonal changes mean that more fluid is stored in the connective tissue; wrinkles are smoothed and improved circulation results in a rosier and fresher complexion. Skin care with the sanosan Mama products during pregnancy allow you to bloom and also ensures a sense of well-being as well as enabling the skin to regenerate despite the stresses relating to pregnancy. The skin-firming properties of our sanosan products have been confirmed in dermatological tests.
The skin on the abdomen is subject to the most stress. Stretching can lead to tightness and itching. A cool shower with sanosan shower cream oil can help ‒ then apply sanosan pregnancy cream liberally.
What we call stretch marks are small tears in elastin and collagen fibres ‒ unfortunately they cannot always be prevented. Regular massages are important to help the skin on the stomach, hips and breasts to cope with the stresses of pregnancy without any visible consequences. Massages have been proven to promote circulation and the skin's metabolism as well as preserve elasticity.

During pregnancy and after giving birth, your body goes through many changes. To be fit and feel attractive again after having a baby, you need to have a lot of patience. To completely regenerate, your body needs about as long as the pregnancy itself. After giving birth, gently massaging tissue helps it recover by stimulating circulation, metabolism and the immune system. sanosan massage oil, pregnancy spray or pregnancy cream act deep in the tissue to support regeneration.
If you have developed stretch marks, you need to be patient at first. You should not start a pat massage until eight weeks after delivery (if you had a Caesarean section, please consult your doctor). This massage not only stimulates blood flow and skin metabolism, it also stimulates the uterus to contract. Unfortunately, the small tears in the skin tissue do not disappear completely, but the skin becomes softer and the stretch marks fade over time. You can regain your figure with a balanced programme of proper diet, massages and exercise.
- Warm up the sanosan Massage Oil or Mom-to-be Cream in your hands and spread over the stomach.
- Place your hands parallel to one another on the stomach and slide your fingertips gently upwards towards the belly button and then to the sides of the stomach.
- For the kneading technique, grasp small roles of skin between your thumb and index finger and gently pull upwards.
- The more advanced the pregnancy, the smaller the skin rolls should be.
- Always massage from the outside area of the stomach towards the belly button. Work the entire area section by section. Do not massage the skin around the pubic bone to avoid irritating the womb. The massage should feel pleasant and should not hurt.
For the best effect, start with pat massage no later than the third month of pregnancy. In the last month before your due date, we recommend just massaging your tummy gently with sanosan massage oil without patting it. The pat massage should ideally be done twice a day.
However, if you are prone to premature contractions, it is better to not massage your tummy. If you are uncertain, ask your midwife or doctor.
The skin of your breasts also stretches a lot during pregnancy. We recommend caring for it with sanosan massage oil. Massage your breasts with oil using circular spiral movements from the outside to the middle of the breast. Do not apply to your nipples.
You should also include your hips, bottom and thighs in your daily massage. After giving birth, massages help tissue recover.
