  1. I was one of the lucky ones who didn't have any stretch marks. I don't remember using any stretch mark prevention products but I now use Bio Oil for lots of skin issues.

  2. DermalMD Stretch Mark Serum worked well. I applied after every shower and before bed. I was overweight before I got pregnant, and I didn’t get any new stretch marks while using this. I also appreciated that it wasn’t greasy and thick like the other products I’ve tried.
