Do applying stretch mark cream early avoid stretch marks?
I don't think the creams help much. I read stretchmarks is genetic but creams helps to keep the skin moisturised. I have been applying Palmer's from first trimester but now at week 32 I have stretchmarks. My bump wasn't big until week 28 and may be that's why had less stretchmarks. But suddenly my bump grew big n I have stretchmarks at lower abdomen as well as left side of the belly. I still continue to apply the cream and oil though.Read more
i used bio oil from second trimester onwards twice daily. there is stretchmarks on my lower abdomen, tho it wasnt very obvious. can hardly tell, but as i look closer can see. guess stretchmarks still can occur due to the expanding of our bump/stretching and then shriking of our skin.
I thought I didn't have stretch marks during my pregnancy. I only noticed them after i gave birth! If i knew, i would have used some cream to prevent them. It may not show during pregnancy it's what i found out. At least for my case.
Any body lotion or cream moiturizer will do, I used nivea or vaseline for all my 3 pregnancy as early as 1st trimester and up until now 33weeks with my 4th baby, stretchmarks are not visible..😊
Yes, it helps a lot. Been applying palmer’s stretch mark lotion since 1st trimester and adding the tummy butter starting my 3rd trimester. Now, 33 weeks and still no stretchmarks appear.
thanks! I will try it out!

Yes! applying early really does help. Try the mamaschoice stretch mark cream. Less than $15. Available on shoppee/jd
For my case no. I apply stretch mark oil/cream since trimester 1, no stretch mark . After give birth, it all come out. 🤦🏻♀️
Just do whatever u can. I think genes affect stretch marks too
Currently using bio oil in the AM, Clarins body partner stretch mark expert + clarins tonic treatment oil in the PM
i applied Mustela when i was 6 weeks pregnant and it works for me
