Ways to Prevent Stretch Marks

– Massage vitamin E or olive oil on the abdomen areas from the start of your pregnancy. Massage it liberally over the marks after a shower. Incase you skip a shower, clean the area with a wet cloth and then apply the oil.

– Regular exercise helps to tone your muscles and keep your skin firm.

– Maintain healthy diet and drink plenty of water. Plenty of proteins and vitamin C and E foods should be included in your diet. Increase your intake of minerals such as zinc and silica to maintain healthy skin.

– One ounce of sweet almond or jojoba oil with 7-8 drops of lavender and chamomile oils is a good homemade recipe.

– Avoid excessive weight gain in a short time span.

– Cocoa butter reduces stretch marks and helps to keep the skin supple.

– Wear a glove and massage your skin to increase circulation.

– While massaging your body with body oil, add coconut and almond oil. Daily massage with Olive oil, flaxseed oil, cod liver oil or vitamin E oil after shower or before sleeping is an excellent home remedy for either preventing or treating stretch marks.

– To avoid stretch marks around breasts, wear a supportive maternity bra.

– To make stretch mark cream, mix 1/2 cup cocoa butter, 1 tsp wheat germ oil, 1 tsp apricot kernel oil, vitamin E oil and 2 tsp grated beeswax. Heat the mixture until cocoa butter and beeswax melt, stir well and store in air tight conditioner.
