My favorite stretch mark creams

During my first pregnancy I was obsessed with preventing stretch marks. After about 25 weeks I would scan my belly,hips,boobs,butt and thighs for any tiny red squiggly lines then lather up the bump several times a day! I’m happy to announce that I ended my pregnancy stretch mark feel. In all fairness, I had a six pound baby and only gained about 20 lbs.

This pregnancy I’m a little more laid back. No, I don’t want stretch marks but they can come with the territory  and it wouldn’t be the end of the world. If the worst thing that happens to me during my pregnancy is stretch marks, I’m good!

Even though stretch marks can’t be 100% avoided (hello genetics) there are some things that you can do to keep your skin in great condition.

Hydrate! Your body has an increased demand for hydration. Your skin also needs to be hydrated for optimal skin elasticity. The better the skin elasticity the better it is at stretching out. I’m personally aiming for a gallon of water a day.

Here’s my favorite creams and oils:

1.) Belli Elasticity Belly Oil – Stretch Mark Protection for Smooth, Healthy Skin – OB/GYN and Dermatologist Recommended – 3.8 oz.

It smells AMAZING. The lavender scent is so relaxing absorbs great and it doesn’t feel sticky.

 

2.) Mustela Stretch Marks Intensive Action Cream, 2.53 Ounce

It’s a like bit on the pricey side but it is great! It is thick and amazing for hydration. Smells good but a little flowery.

3.)Bio-Oil 4.2oz: Multiuse Skincare Oil

Looovee Bio-Oil! Easy on the wallet and keep your skin so soft and hydrated.

4.)Palmer’s Cocoa Butter Formula Tummy Butter For Stretch Marks, 4.4-Ounce Units (Pack of 3)


Another one that is easy on the wallet. This way my night time cream. So thick.
