I am very early in first tri, but I want to get a jump on taking care of my belly skin...so I was wondering what you all used if anything and what brands work the best. There are a million different brands...which is best?
My MW told me just to use olive oil... but it's so messy, and the smell makes me heave, so my dad got me this stuff by Mamma Mio "Tummy Rub Stretch Mark Butter"... I dunno whether it's down to this, or the general elasticity of my skin, but I've not got a single stretch mark yet. It smells gorgeous too.
I just use Cocoa Butter. It really helps when my tummy or boobs start to itch from stretching. I'm not sure how it works with stretch marks as I only got them on my boobs so far and I started using the lotion AFTER i got the stretch marks, lol.
