When to Use Stretch Mark Cream During Pregnancy
Do you know when to use stretch mark creamduring pregnancyé I know there are women who would use it themoment they got a positive pregnancy test if they thought it would prevent stretch marks. You have to start putting stretch mark creamor preventatives in place, because you can't get rid of scars once they form. But thosecreams have to do something, because I know people who have had three kids and don'thave stretch marks. About half of all women don't get stretchmarks. But I won't know if I'm in that half untilit is too late.
Your odds of stretch marks go up if you'recarrying multiples or gain a lot of weight over the pregnancy. I knew about the rapid weight gain. I've seen body builders with stretch marksbecause they bulked too fast. Which creams should I use to avoid stretchmarksé Aloe or something elseé Using a moisturizer reduces the odds of stretchmarks, and it will reduce the itching you may feel as things stretch out. Most of the creams I'm looking at have that.
Unfortunately, there's no cream proven toprevent stretch marks, though you can use moisturizers at any time. All you can do ishide it afterward. Or get laser scar removal. I wish I coulduse effective creams like I did for acne as a teen. Do not use RetinA while pregnant, thoughit would help. That stuff can cause birth defects. What about compounds with glycolic acid orwitch hazelé Glycolic acid isn't proven to do anything.Witch hazel is a skin conditioner, but it
doesn't prevent stretch marks. What can I doé If you develop those scars of maternity, wearthem with pride. I'd as easily be proud of the baby's spitup on my shirt. So switch to a one piece swimsuit after youhave the baby or cover yourself tactfully with sunscreen. No one in real life is goingto judge you for stretch marks. You're right. The baby fat matters more.
