I used Bio Oil in my second pregnancy and was lucky enough to escape stretch marks. How much is due to genetics or just regular Moisturising using any cream?

  • I uSed olive oil on my belly, no stretch marks after all my kids. Thanks to being a Rolling Stone fan, Mick Jaggers girlfriend years ago, Jerry Hall, used this. Thanks Jerry

  • Try Bio Oil – it can help

  • no it didn’t so i hate all of you women! naahhh just jokes! i love my stripes. i am not too bad compared to others

  • I used coco butter after 4 kids I have no stretch marks.

  • I have stretch marks from puberty (they never leave you once they are there) but I used bio oil and Palmers oil during my pregnancy and didn’t get any additional ones. I think it depends how much weight you gain and how quickly, I’ve spoken to people from a few different backgrounds and their experiences have all varied

  • Olive oil! I’m a huge Rolling Stones fan and I remember Micks Jaggers now ex Jerry Hall used it while pregnant. Figured if it worked for her, it’s worth a try. I had NO stretch marks!!

  • i rubbed sorbolene into my stomach and thighs during each pregnancy. i have 5 kids and not one stretch mark. its so important to give your skin extra elasticity. ive also heard that olive oil is good
