Olive oil is good to use on your skin. It's a great natural oil.

Thank you. hopefully it stays that way! lol im 7 weeks pregnant. i know stretch marks are genetic. (both my grandmas, and my mom have them terribly) but i made my own mixture like i said. and it helped me a lot. i put it on 2 times a day, in morning after my shower, and at night before bed.

i got them on my hips, but if you PT me, and i PT you back, you can see in my pregnancy album of what they look like now, hardly noticeable.



i also forgot to moisturize my hips lol

I used to put a few drops in my bath when pregnant and then body shops coco butter. I also used to put the bio oil in my baths when I breastfed but made sure nipples were cleaned of any oil due to any oils being eek for a sucking newborn. I think the bio oil works better 'after' baby's born to be honest.



Had 3 children and have like tiny amount of stretchmarks. No new ones with my most recent and biggest baby's pregnancy :)
