What is the best anti stretch mark cream?


what have you found to be the most effective cream or product to prevent stretch marks? And when do you start applying it? Thanks
Also, do you think the time of year (season) has anything to do with you getting stretch marks? ie: biggest in the summer skin more moist etc?

apparently its genetic whether your skin is susceptible to stretchies or not... i used bio oil throughout my last pregnancy and still got a few .. (nothing bad like ive seen on other people but certainly a few!) keeping skin moisturized certainly wont do any harm! xx

Don't forget to moisturise your boobs, bum and thighs!

I used Avent dry oil spray in my last pregnancy, it smelled delish!

apparently none of them work! if you get them, you get them, but you would probably already know from being a teenager ( i have them on my thighs, bum and hips ) So im guessing that im going to get them whatever i do. I do put cocoa butter on my tummy after a shower so im hoping that keeping moisturised might help?

During my last pregnancy I used bio oil, I put on looooads of weight and had no stretch marks til 38 weeks and at 42 weeks I had sooooo many it was insane. So I don't trust any of them anymore, but it definitely helps to use those creams to keep the stretching skin moisturised and feel better, so will be using it again anyway. The strech marks did fade fast when I continued to use the Bio oil after delivery.

Weleda pregnancy oil. Smells beautiful and feels lovely (a bit greasy). Started using it in 2nd tri and not a single stretch mark. Only natural oils in the product. Will be using it again for this pregnancy.

i wont be using anything.
i still got a lot with my last pregnancy and used lots of things which didnt prevent them.
You also get stretch marks where you dont expect them AFTER pregnancy too.
They do fade eventually though

yep none of them work (although I read somewhere that it couldn't be genetic but I will go with genetic since my mom didn't have any). Bio oil is the best option, a little on the expensive side but everybody is saying it's worth it. You can also use it after/if you get stretch marks to minimize their appearance.
