    I am pregnant and want to know if anyone has had any luck with skin care for stopping stretchmarks? I have heard that some are not safe to use and can harm my baby but I am so confused by which ones are ok and actually work to prevent stretchmarks, as I happily grow into my 9 month bump!

      I used to work in a pharmaceutical and beauty product store - coconut oil rubbed into the skin was the suggested product. Much cheaper than many of the alternatives. Greek women swear by olive oil.

      Obviously, I don't speak from experience! smile

    Hey! Congrats on your pregnancy, I am 3 months pregnant and have had 8 girlfriends all use this product called belli skin care, Elasticity Belly Oil that helps to prevent stretchmarks. Their doctor told them it was the safest to use, then I saw it on a current affair the other night as well. I read up all about in on their website and it talks heaps about what is safe, really interesting. None of my friends got ANY stretchmarks at all and swear by this for stopping stretch marks. I have only just started using it but so far so good! I ordered all of their other skin care for pregnancy as well from belliskincare website and LOVING it. Wish you all the best for the months ahead, we are together in the skin stretch J don’t forget to join the VIP thing on their site before you order, you get a discount that way, i forgot myself but definitely worth it you get 15% off. Good luck.

    I used Palmer's Cocoa Butter for Stretch Marks and it did okay.  Although, I must confess that I did not use the lotion as much as I should have.  I wasn't seeing improvement quickly enough so I sort of gave up.  I suppose it's worth a shot though.

    ta... ta...  ta... ta... ta,,, tummy-tuck is a solution for those stretch marks. I would also combine it with whatever exercises Demi Moore and the girl from the show "Alias" did.
