    I thought I had got away with it but I woke up this morning and literally, overnight, a mass of stretchmarks have appeared. I have been using bio oil religiously, to prevent them (obviously without success). Has anyone got advice on what products are best to reduce their appearance?

    apparently if you are going to get stretchies they will come no matter what you use as they are genetic
    bio i hear does help reduce the appearence of them over time though so just keep up using it x

    I've been using bio-oil and have no recommendations in regards to anything else but just wanted to say that happened to me, at 39 weeks I woke up to have been visited by the stretch mark fairy in the night - was so annoyed! I keep on telling myself they are just going to disappear (denial is a beautiful thing!)

    Ive been told by many people Bio Oil is great to help reduce the appearance over time. Im sure it does work .... It did when I tried it out on a scar last year :)
