Need I explain that pregnancy leaves saggy skin around places? I’ve recently tried a few cream products designed to stimulate skin regrowth and think I see improvement in tightness but can’t work out which product is best… (or maybe the “improvement” is caused by camera angle or something else!)

  • I think in this instance, prevention is better then cure. Lots of olive oil applied right from the start of pregnancy, gives the skin lots of bounce back ability

  • Not sure that things ever go quite back to pre baby skin. I haven’t found anything that has worked for me unfortunately. Will be keeping an eye on comments to see if others have.

  • Skin does stretch and sag and I am not aware of any ‘miracle’ creams.

  • I use a product called Hydra-oil. Its been brililiant. Comes in creams and oils. They have a website hydra-oil.com. Products are for skin firming, stretch marks, to reduce scarring etc. I’m really happy with the results.

  • I know how you feel . My abdomen still sags after nearly 20 years but it is also related to other factors which makes it worse such as age, diet , exercise etc. I was very lucky that I was a trial tester to Sculpt Cellulite cream which did smooth and slightly toned my abdomen area, but my skin was sensitive to the ingredients so couldn’t continue after nearly two weeks . Perhaps pop into Chemist Warehouse and there should be an isle where they sell firming cream etc and have a look at what you might want to try . Good luck
