Stretch Mark Creams During Pregnancy

June 7, 2021

Into your second trimester, if it already hasn’t, your belly will start to grow. And grow. Rapid growth of any part of your body can result in stretch marks on your skin. Women most commonly get stretch marks on their abdomen, and sometimes even on their breasts due to pregnancy.

So, how do you prevent stretch marks?

Many women swear by moisturizing their skin to help prevent stretch marks. So, we’ve done the research for you. In this article we’ve listed the best stretch mark creams, as rated online.

This has received rave reviews (and a LOT of them too), and at a price tag of just $11, we’re ready to slather this all over our belly too! It contains cocoa, shea, and jojoba butters and is formulated specifically for moms-to-be.

DIY Creams

Pinterest has a plethora of DIY creams that you can make with a handful of products you may already have in your medicine cabinet. You can find these popular Pins here.

Although these creams are one way to help fight stretch marks, the most important thing to help with skin dryness is to be sure you are keeping yourself extra hydrated, staying active, and eating healthy throughout your pregnancy.

Is there a stretch mark cream you’d recommend?

I have used so many creams to recover from Pregnancy stretch marks, but Themomsco natural butter cream worked for me.

I used dermalmd stretch mark cream during pregnancy to prevent stretch marks, and it worked! My mom had a lot of stretch marks, so I was paranoid. I rubbed this on diligently twice a day and made it through pregnancy without any stretch marks. It also has a nice smell, particularly compared to a couple other stretch mark creams I tried.

I used Dermelastic serum for my pregnancy stretch marks and it worked miracles! I loved the texture so much and the fact that it left my skin very smooth and was absorbed quickly. I only did not like the smell which could be better, but I got used to it anyways. My stretch marks did fade after 2 months, and I even forgot to use it some nights.

Bio Oil is a waste. I’ve bought twice and applied all of it yet there are no visible differences in a 6 months old burnt scar

I’ve tried all mentioned here but only invicible scars was able to treat my stretch marks which unfortunately is not in this list that you’ve stated. I found it worth trying.

Nice. But you can also use “intensive stretch mark therapy” it does provide the moisture and works great for the skin. I have had stretch marks since I was a teen and I have used many stretch marks cream but this is what saved me a lot of money and now that My stretch marks are also fading away I can say that finally this is the cream which works for me.

Removing stretch marks once they appear is very difficult, which is why stretch mark preventing creams should be used timely. Choose creams that contain natural proteins, minerals, vitamins, botanical extracts and antioxidants. I used the Dr Max Powers Stretch Mark Cream when I was pregnant, and I still use it now when I gain some weight (temporarily). No stretch marks when using this.
