    Stretch Marks

    Hello All

    Hope I'm not repeating anyone's post but anyone have tried and tested results to make stretch marks less angry looking?!

    Tried bio oil and coco butter and found it works quite well but just wondered if anyone else had any other products to share

    When I had my son I got loads of stretch marks and my gran suggested sitting in the sun to fade them as they were quite red and angry looking. I didn't fancy the sitting out in the sun with them for all to see so I did a few sunbeds and they are more of a silvery colour and faded!! The are defiantly not a noticeble

    I bought some raw coconut oil and have been using that, I really think it's making a difference, also you can use it on your hair and to cook, bonus :P
    yellowbittern and AshleyRose like this.

    Re: Stretch Marks

    An old trick is to rub in baby oil BEFORE getting into a bath. Helps to condition the skin. You can also use olive oil.

    My Mum used different moisturisers every single day from the day she found out she was pregnant with me. And she still got covered in angry red welts. Unfortunatley ladies its genetic - something to do with the elasticity of your skin.

    The only thing thats ever worked for her (and that I do religiously now so I dont end up the same way when I have kids) - is dry body brushing, followed by moisturising with an intense oil, like vit E or rosehip.

    Ah, I was wondering what to do with my leftover coconut oil since I started losing weight! I used to eat a lot of it, but since it no-longer suits the way I'm eating, I'll give it a go and see if my stretch marks improve
