stretch marks in pregnancy
Hi Doc

I am 6 1/2 months pregnant and the stretch mark days are looming close now. Since I was 5 weeks pregnant, over and above moisturising my body morning and night, I have been using Bio Oil.

I have also started using Dermastine cream recommended by my doctor morning and night.

Please recommend a skin care regime to limit stretch marks during pregnancy. The best creams, time of day, exfoliates.... I am prepared to try anything.

My mom developed stretch marks during her pregnancy, does that mean I will too??

Thanks
L

I cannot improve on your current treatment. Make more than 100% sure that the Dermastine cream does not contain vitamin A.
