      Cocoa butter is great for this, but you do have to use it all the time. Also mederma helps fade the ones that you do get, but you need to wait a bit to use it.

                    If you do happen to get stretch marks, use Mederma shortly after giving birth. It really does help in reducing them.

                      Wasn't Strivectin-D originally for stretchmarks and now it's used for facial wrinkles? But that's for existing stretchmarks. In terms of prevention I think genetics have a greater affect than anything else.

                        Re: Stretch Marks

                        i read an article written by a dermatologist..she said that creams dont help in reducing or preventing stretch marks. Stretch marks are mainly hereditary. If your mom has them then most likely you will have them as well. The best way to reduce the marks are getting laser treatment. Stretch marks get lighter naturally as the years go by ..it's not because of the creams (from what the Dr said).

                              try almond or pure vitamin E oil.
