When I first found out I was pregnant I started using pure almond, olive and vitamin E oils I got from the vitamin store. I use it twice a day everyday. I'm 8 months pregnant and I HAVE NO STRETCH MARKS. I also drink a pregnancy tea (1 tbsp ACV, 1 tbsp blackstrap molasses and 1/2 tsp honey with 8oz glass of warm spring water) first thing in the morning. This does wonders for energy, constipation and clears up your complexion and addition helps to stabilize your blood pressure (also your should stay away from hidden sodium foods). God is good. I just love this website. It is very helpful and informative. God Bless
I am a small framed woman. When I found out that I was pregnant, I immediately began to worry about getting stretch marks. I went to our local health food store and asked the owner what to do. She told me to try orange oil mixed with vitamin E oil. I used a dropper and mixed the two in my hands and rubbed this mixture all over my body. I gained 45 pounds and I DIDN'T GET ONE STRETCH MARK!! This really works, and it smells good too!
I want to let you know, I tried 2 products during my pregnancy to prevent stretch marks. One worked and one didn't although they were the same brand. I used Palmers cocoa all over body butter(on my heiny thighs hips and breasts) it did absolutely nothing. I am currently covered with marks on these areas. I used Palmers Cocoa butter formula tummy butter and I did not get one stretch mark on my stomach. Go figure - I really stretched out there. So, I completey recommend the tummy butter. It's only a few dollars and it lasted my whole pregnancy (applied once a day only on my tummy). The only catch is that is does not absorb very quickly. I hope this info is useful. Unfortunately for me, I didn't know about this website until after I had my baby.
