How to avoid stretchmarks?

Avoiding Stretchmarks

Unfortunately, stretch marks are a genetic disposition. If your mother has them - you very likely will get them too. Actually during pregnancy there is no way of completely avoiding them, if you are genetically engineered to have them. Retin A and laser treatments do well to get rid of them - however neither one of them are safe to use during pregnancy. Possible helps to avoid stretchmarks would be to apply creams and lotions - such as cocoa butter creams to help the skin stay moisturized and possibly help to avoid those stretch marks.

In my family we all use a cream called MOTHERS FRIEND, everyone in my family uses this cream, when I was pregant for the first time I used this cream everyday, and I had no stretchmarks, With my 2 pregnancy I told my doctor about the cream and he told me that it was a genetics, So I did stop using it, and I had so many stretchmarks, I know that this is the best Cream around that WILL help!
