I'm not overly concerned about them but I was just wondering if anyone found or did something that helped prevent them or helped in anyways. Its always nice to hear different things to try that might make a difference. I've heard coco butter and lotion and stuff. I was just wondering if anyone found something that actually worked and made a difference.
I'm too early in my pregnancy for stretch marks, but a co-worker has three kids and said she used Skin So Soft oil for each of her pregnancies and she got by with no stretch marks. Maybe it's just good genes and nature for her to not get them, but I'm going to give it a try. She put it on after showering in the morning and before bed at night.
I'm using a combination of palmers coco butter and this stuff I heard about on the net called Biooil. I use the coco butter at night cause it leaves me feeling greasy and biooil in the morning. it's like a dry oil so it absorbs after a certain amount of rubbing/drying time without that greasy feel and smells really good unlike coco butter. I try to rub myself down every day but don't always have the time or ambition. so far so good though, I guess we'll eventually find out if it was worth the effort.
I am using the mama mio skin care for strech marks in the morning and coco butter at night. I don't think there is anything that will prevent them though, but i have to try.
I use Hollywood Beauty Cocoa Butter. It's pretty oily but that part doesn't bother me because I do NOT want any stretch marks. I made it thru with my first two and this is my third pregnancy. I have the large size at home and keep at least two travel sizes in my purse so throughout the day I can rub it on my stomach, sides and lower back when it dries out.
