 Why breast is deformed? 

The main reasons for changing the look and condition of the breast skin and lethargy are not sufficiently well developed chest muscles. Breast shape depends on the correct location and the elasticity of the breast. Mammary glands are located on a thin fat layer. Improper posture, "twisted" the back of sitting at a computer monitor lead to a weakening of the chest muscles. Therefore, the most important thing that you need to start - is to constantly worry about the state of the muscles, the position of his body (good posture). Care for Breast necessary not only before and during pregnancy, and certainly after the birth.

 Do not gain weight. 

Female breast consists of glandular (75%) and adipose tissue (25%) - this is at a normal weight person. When excess weight of fat in the breast becomes larger. During pregnancy, under the influence of estrogen grows glandular tissue, reduced skin elasticity, causing the appearance of stretch marks or, as they say, stretch marks. And if next to the glandular tissue will grow fat, then the status of the breast skin, however. Moreover, such a load to stretching of the ligaments that support the inside of the breast. Therefore, try not to gain more than 10-14 kilos during the pregnancy. This reduces the probability of occurrence of stretch marks and sagging breasts.

 Daily shower. 

Stretch marks (striae) can appear both during pregnancy and after the end of the breastfeeding period. Many cosmetologists unanimously declare that in the first nine months after childbirth, you can remove all the consequences of pregnancy, including stretch marks. To do this on a daily basis to give yourself a bit of attention. Daily intake of the soul during and after pregnancy is one of the ways to keep in shape of their breasts.

After that, apply a moisturizer to the field of stretch marks. Also moisturizer can and should use special cream against stretch marks. But the main thing here is to read the instructions, because such creams are divided into two categories: one is really rid of stretch marks, while others - only clarified them. In addition, the effectiveness of the cream for stretch marks can be achieved if the stretch marks are fresh. If, however, after nine months of stretching did not disappear, it is necessary to contact a specialist in the beauty salon, where a laser will remove unsightly scars and stretch marks.
