Is there a special oil to help avoid stretch marks?


Answer by  docfrog (22)

The best thing that I have ever found is Emu oil. It is similar to vitamin E oil, but I found that it works much better for things like scars and stretch marks. It can usually be found in a health food store, but if you can't find it vitamin E oil will work.

To avoid getting stretch marks during pregnancy, the best thing to do is to use cocoa butter on and around your stomach several times a day. The cocoa butter moisturizes and loosens your skin so that it won't retain marks.

I used Bio Oil when I was pregnant with my 9 month old son to try and prevent getting stretch marks on my stomach and breasts. I didn't get any on my stomach, but did get some on my breasts. I think Vaseline works best

Some people find that coconut oil, shea butter, or cocoa butter can really help with stretch marks. Coconut oil is cheap and also makes a good moisturizer.

If you are a female then there really isn't much you can do to avoid stretch marks. Coacoa butter and pure vitamin E oil can help reduce the appearance though, if you are pregnant and start a daily routine with the two products. Bio oil also helps.

There are many creams and oils available specifically for pregnant women. I would recommend using Vitamin E in both a pill and the oil form that you rub on daily (or more often if you desire). Talk to your doctor before taking any type of vitamin. Some creams even have a new substance that is supposed to help with skin-elasticity.
