I would like to jump the wagon and try to prevent stretch marks from happening... Anyone have any suggestions on creams/oils?
Nothing prevents them except your genetics. No oil or cream gets deep enough to prevent anything. They can help with itching if you do get them.
I don't know if you can totally prevent them, but I'm not going down without a fight!
I've got Mama Mio Tummy Rub and Mama Mio Tummy Oil. Expensive. But it smells heavenly, all natural, no parabens or yuckies. And I put it on after the shower and when I shower again 12 to 24 hours later I can feel it wash off, which I think is a good thing.
