It Works! offers the Ultimate Body Applicator and a Defining Gel which both help reduce the appearance of stretch marks. I didn't believe anything could make a drastic difference in just an hour but the wrap which detoxifies, tightens, and firms really does. I lost two inches off my waist and my stomach was smooth. https://shotwellwraps.myitworks.com

oh yeah and i also went to one of those natural soap stores & got an oatmeal soap bar (with pieces of oatmeal in it) -- i used that every day to rub those same areas when i took a shower as an exfoliant -- really worked as a gentle scrub & helped to keep the skin soft & tight. the soap cost me about $7 for 1 bar, but lasted me pretty much 7 months (just be sure to store it away from water as those natural soaps are way softer than store-bought ones) & it was great, helped with itchy belly as well.

Vitamin E creams, body butters (that are cocoa butter based) or even cocoa butter by itself (in my case i hate the smell all throughout the pregnancy, so i went to body shop & got a vitamin e enriched body butter which was cocoa butter based). Olive oil is great but i wouldn't use it during pregnancy as it stimulates hair growth, however after pregnancy, it's a great thing to use.

For stretch marks, during pregnancy, i would advise you to put creams not just on ur belly, but all the way around from ur breasts down to the crotch area and a bit on ur hips -- that's the areas you tend to stretch out, so the more elastic u keep ur skin, the better off you will be afterwards.

Throughout my pregnancy and now, through post partum I am using 100% pure shea butter. It does wonders!

9 out of 10 women have stretch marks...now you don't have to be one of them... regardless of the age of the stretch marks...regardless of their color.

Each stretch mark is actually visible discolored scar tissue caused by stretching and a breakdown of collagen and elastin in the skin. Moisturizers, vitamin E, aloe or cocoa butter alone can't fade stretch marks. Avon's new revolutionary treatment, with patented technology, can.

Patented Trilaser technology formulated to help:
Stimulate collagen to correct the look of stretch marks.
Boost elastin to help prevent new stretch marks from forming.
Plus, powered with Butea, a natural plant extract to help lighten & fade stretch marks.
Apply AM and PM to stretch mark areas. For use on thighs, hips, arms and buttocks. 5 fl. oz.

In 2 weeks: 75% of women showed a visible improvement in length & depths of their oldest stretch marks.

In 4 weeks: 86% of women showed an improvement in the skin tone of their stretch marks.

In 8 weeks: 91% of women showed an improvement in the appearance of cellulite.
