I was about to post this same question! I haven't grown very much boob wise but I already have stretch marks on my boobs of all places! Blah! I'm only 13 weeks. I have some cocoa butter I bought in Romania. It's not palmers which I will buy when I return but I've been using it everyday now!
I have a product by mama mio that is pretty good. Its tummy butter and boob tube or something like that. Its pretty good. Its nice and thick. I have been using it. So far no stretch marks really I already had a few on my boobs because they got big really quickly when i was younger. I just told my SO we are going to get them fixed when all this over because my best friend said hers deflated afterwards :/
Bio-oil is a con, you're as well to use Johnson's baby oil, it's the same major ingredient in both - mineral oil.
I've already got stripes from when I was on Lithium, a long long time ago - I put on over 3st in less than 3 months and had huge dark purple stripes on my stomach. They've faded over time, but the skin naturally doesn't snap back from that kind of abuse.
Keep your skin supple and make sure you get enough protein in your diet, I also heard that VitE is very good for skin. Some take it as a supplement, some mix the oil in with moisturiser and use it topically.
Archiesmummy- I beg to differ, there ARE products which help prevent stretch marks, but like all treatments nothing is 100% effective. But anything that lowers the risk is OK by me! (study on 2 different creams
Iv always been told to ask your mums if they got stretch marks when pregnant .apparently if your mum got them you will and if she didn't you won't, it was true for me, I still used coco butter but that's just because I liked the smell and nice to do something nice for me everyday, I do think bio oil is a bit over priced but each to there own x
I don't think there's anything you can do to prevent them but staying well hydrated helps your skins elasticity so I definitely recommend drinking a lot of water. Using cocoa butter may help too but if you're going to get them then there's nothing you can do about it. I mainly got them on my boobs and hips. I do have a few on my tummy but I'm not that bothered by them as I'm pregnant with my fourth so they could have been a lot worse. I don't have any loose skin or sagging BUT I always look bloated so I think I need to majorly change my diet, fizzy pop and takeaways are doing me no favours lol.
