Unfortunately there isn't much you can do about stretchmarks as it's more genetic than anything else but keeping your bump well moisturized is supposed to help. I personally haven't found anything that helps :(
Bio oil. You can purchase it offline. Its kinda expensive for the size tube it comes in but when used daily you will see change. Ive used a year prior and now that im pregnant I started bk using it. Go to amazon or ebay smallest one is $20 but worth every dime
I used palmers cream with my first and didnt get any stretch marks until aomeone told me bio.oil was better and i ended up with 2 on each love handle. bio oil is only good for lightening up stretch marks. im using palmers again this time around and im 18 weeks and still havent got no stretch marka. i love it.
i have used palmers belly butter cream.....its very very thick and keeps you well moisturized!!!!! i have recently been using this brand called studio 35 and they make a cocoa butter Vaseline and it works very well.....it sticks to my stomach for a few days!!!! even after a shower :) and i know that they say stretch marks are by genetics but my mother got them with both me and my sister, my sister got them horribly but i am almost 35 weeks and i have nothing!!!! i have been lotioning my belly since i found out i was pregnant pretty much until now and that may have something to do with it!!!!! any time i feel my belly is getting dry i lube it up :)
It is genetic I never used anything and never got any...pregnant with fifth...but my mom never had any so my grnadma....although even with good genes gaining weight quickly can scause them on your thighs and bottocks
When u get out of the.shower apply a decent ammount of baby oil or cocoa butter oil to your belly, back, sides and legs. I haven't had any stretch marks and I'm 29 weeks 2 days. The cocoa butter oil along with any oil keeps your skin moist.
Staying active and hydrated helps us gain weight at a steady rate rather than quickly. This helps against stretch marks. And vitamin e oil helps alot. I have minimized large scars down to almost invisible. Since I started using it on my back and tummy I also used it on my thighs. I have stretch marks from going through puberty and I have had a noticeable reduction in just a few weeks.
