Hi there. Thank you for your question. I hate to be the bearer of bad news… but there is only SO MUCH you can do to minimise the possibility of stretch marks. Very few ladies get away with ZERO stretch marks and this is understandable, as your skin REALLY has to stretch out to accommodate a pregnant belly. The best you can do is mildly exfoliate throughout your pregnancy and apply hydrating products and nourishing products as much as you can throughout your pregnancy. The truth of the matter is that even this cannot guarantee that you will not get stretch marks… some people are VERY lucky, but unfortunately the majority of us are going to put up with trying to get our post-pregnancy lax skins back into shape.
