Change is a sure thing, especially when it comes to a woman’s skin. But at different stages in a woman’s life, her skin needs different care. That’s why the experts at Curél Skin Care developed the Life’s Stages Collection – the first and only line of moisturizers designed to help women address the changing needs of their skin.

Stage #1 – Pregnancy & Motherhood

  • Skin Problems: tight, itchy, dry, sensitive skin, stretch marks.
  • Problem Solver: Curél nurturing comfort; Moisture Cream for pregnancy & motherhood
  • How it Helps: Dermatologist and Curél Consultant, Dr. Diane Berson says, ” It helps improve skin’s elasticity and alleviates dryness via a paraben and mineral oil-free formula containing shea butter, Vitamin E, collagen and elastin. It increases skin’s elasticity 70% better than the leading pregnancy cream.”

Stage #2 – First Signs of Aging

  • Skin Problems: rough, dry, discolored, dull, and transparent, loss of elasticity, wrinkles
  • Problem Solver: Curél youth-defense; Moisture Lotion for the first signs of aging
  • How it Helps: ” It replenishes essential building blocks found in naturally young, healthy skin and increases skin’s moisture level via a blend of skin hydrators, Vitamins C & E and collagen,” says OB/GYN and Curél Consultant, Dr. Miriam Greene. “It also contains sage to reduce redness and irritation.”

Stage #3 -é Menopause and Beyond

  • Skin Problems: hot, dry, itchy skin, loss of elasticity
  • Problem Solver: Curél skin fortifying Moisture Lotion for menopause & beyond
  • How it Helps: “It helps maintain skin’s elasticity, making it soft and supple via a blend of elastin and collagen, grape seed extract known to inhibit collagen loss,” says Dr. Berson.
    “It also has a gentile cooling agent and a special blend of emollients designed to increase skin elasticity, maintain hydration, and improve the appearance of dry skin,” adds Dr. Greene.

Availability: The moisturizers in the Life’s Stages Collection are each sold separately. They will be available at drugstores nationwide beginning in March 2008 for $5.49.

What do you think of this concept? I’m not sure if I’m going to try it yet, because I’m not sure if I’m in the stage of “first signs of aging,” you know? I suppose I am in some fashion, but not visibly to a degree where I feel any product could counteract it. I do like that price, though ;)

    I may try out stage 1 for pregnancy and motherhood. I used coco butter lotion during my last pregnancy and the smell made me literally want to yack. Anytime I smell anything like it now I immediately have these horrible memories of me and our toliet for my first 7 months of pregnancy!

    • Oh, no, how awful! I’m like that with tomato soup… I had so much of it when I had my wisdom teeth out, I can’t even stand the scent of it anymore.

    Before using anything on your skin during pregnancy, ensure that it is TERATOLOGY screened. (This means they screen for ingredients linked to birth defects). I’m pretty sure Curel doesn’t teratology screen.

    anytime! I was searching around…and I called my OB. There is a company called Belli that is the only company in the world to teratology screen. Not to knock Curel, they have great products that serve a purpose…just not for every stage of a woman’s life.

    Oh wow! wished I knew what to put during the time I was pregnant. I had rashes on my legs which were very itchy.

    I think all pregnant women should be aware of how to care for their skin and body while pregnant cause it can leave marks after.

    There is another problem associated with the pragnancy that is hair loss as hairlosscounter.com said. But such hair loss is not permanant and regrow after some time. But cause aging affects.
