Hi Maya, thank you for the question and congratulations with the pregnancy, I wish you and the new baby all the best.

My suggestion is to use a combination of:
Moisturizer containing glycolic acid, and
Anti-oxidants in the form of vitamin E, vitamin C, and vitamin K

There is nothing stopping you from adding an ‘anti-stretch mark’ cream. Studies have shown that Vitamin E oil is not effective in reducing stretch marks.
