  • Some of us are blessed with a beautiful skin. I myself never had stretch marks, but have quite a dry skin so it’s impossible to avoid wrinkles. My mum is 86yrs old and has less wrinkles than me age 57yrs old ! I think it’s important to moisturize the skin, but in the meantime just accept wrinkles and aging.
    For my face I use a homemade cream made of shea butter, coconut oil and raw honey as I’ve had many allergic reactions on store bought products

  • I use reliable and affordable Vitamin E cream and it does not get rid of wrinkles but my skin is soft.

  • Lancome is fantastic for eye cream but expensive and L’oreal is good for face cream at an affordable price and rose-hip oil or a serum under moisturer helps alot!

  • Sunscreen and any god moisturiser will help.

  • My partner put me onto Nutrimetics Apricot Oil Balm – it is devine smelling and works really well

  • Used Palmer’s Cocoa butter with Vitamin E whilst I was pregnant. Only needed one bottle for the entire duration of the pregnancy. Worked a treat, nil stretch marks.

  • I like emu oil and apricot oil. I think trying to stay out of the sun, drink lots of water and quitting sugar is supposed to help with your skin’s appearance too.

  • I use Gaia belly butter (pregnant or not). It smells great & I found it made my stretch marks fade pretty quickly :) As for my face, I haven’t found a product that works that doesn’t give me pimples :(

  • i love olay. there are many things that you can do to help improve the look of your skin and definately drink a lot of water.

  • I have heard that Bio Oil does help a little, should try that out, used a sample a couple of days ago, makes the skin smooth

  • According to my daughter Bio OIL HELPS A BIT.

  • Will do my best then to embrace them :)

  • Stretch marks and wrinkles are unavoidable – I have just embraced them! ;)

  • I haven’t found any that are good – would love to here what others say.

  • Must say, wrinkles are part of ageing gracefully – best remedy is sunscreen and feeling comfortable in your own body. As for stretch marks – keeping the area well moisturised really helps.
