A friend of mine who is expecting her first child sent me a recipe for a Do It Yourself stretch mark cream. From my experience with all the products on the store shelves I’m not too sure if it will help prevent or even fade old marks. However, it’s worth the try! You can find majority of all the ingredients on Amazon.com. PLEASE DO YOUR research and get quality products. I will be checking in with my friend periodically for her results.
DIY Stretch Mark Cream
- 1 C. Olive oil
- 1 C. Coconut oil
- 1/2 C. Beeswax
Add any or all of the following
- 8 capsules vitamin E oil
