Any ladies have a magic way to stop stretch marks? I've heard of bio oil but so far it doesnt seem to be helping! Shocked

And its good for wrinkles not saying you have them lol but it prevents them Wink

I've just gotten used to having them. Nearly every woman gets them, so I don't know why we are so bothered by them.

You'd prob be best to go into boots or something and ask for some advice.

With my first pregnancy I used cocoa butter and I still got dark red/purple stretch marks(but luckily these did fade after a few months). Second time around I just used Johnson's baby lotion and I swear the only marks I had were those left from the first pregnancy,I was really lucky but I don't know if this was because my body had stretched before Suspect Any way try the baby lotion Smile

i used the Avent mums range and it seemed to help. i never had any stretch marks until the last 2 weeks and then got a few when my bump got huge Wink

I used palmers cocoa butter strechmark cream, I had my baby a month ago today and have no stretcmarks on my tummy at all, although my mum doesn't either after 5 children so maybe it's a hereditary thing. I do have a couple on my thighs though so maybe it was the cream??
I've heard of Bio Oil too, someone also mentioned that if you by vit E capsules you can break them and rub the liquid into stretchmarks too, never tried this though.

I used avent spray oil when I was pregnant with Charlotte but it didn't work for me and I got stretch marks. I just used baby oil with George and I just found some of my stretch marks extended.

They've gone silvery now though. I'm not a stretchy person I got alot when I was growing in my teens so I think it just depends on how your made. Suspect

Ive been using bio-oil from the beginning and touch wood no stretch marks yet. I slather it on after my shower every night, it takes a while to sink in but hopefully its working. My mam didn't get stretchmarks so Im hoping I take after her, I think its hereditry anyway, if your prone to them theres no cream on earth that'll stop them Suspect

I used Palmers cocoa butter stretch mark cream, plus shea butter, plus some Neals Yard body lotion (not all at once though) and didn't get any stretch marks. However, I also didn't get all that big so maybe that had something to do with it

Same here... I used the coco butter through out pregnancy and I ended up with 3 stretch marks from pregnancy. I've had them on my hips since I became a teenager, can't blame pregnancy on those Embarassed
