I thought I would start this topic which affects alot of ppl & see what we are trying to keep our bumps in good condition.
Someone has suggested to me to try Rosehip Oil & Cream for stretchmarks. It comes highly recommended for use on scars but it also is ment to help with skin elasticity & helps to repair the tissue.
To help keep them at bay them until now I have been a using a cocoa butter + vit e oil along with a cocoa butter cream which I thought was doing the trick, but in just the last 2-3 weeks my hubby has pointed out the new stretchmarks I cant see :'( on my lower tummy (here I was thinking yay! its working! but he had to burst my bubble tongue )
I am trying the Renew Rosehip oil cream which says to rub their oil on first, then put the cream over (shop was out of stock so am trying the cream by itself at the moment). My grandmother has tried this product on my grandfather, (at 85 he was complaining about his skin!) & found that his scars from the war & stretchmarks from his recent weightloss have faded considerably, so an aunt tried it a few months after an op (was warned not to used it on "fresh" scarring from her op) & she thought it was great.
I have only seen this product in a couple of shops here in NZ, but you can see their products at http://renewskincare.com.au/#
It will be interesting to see if it fades my existing ones smile
What are you trying on your skin?
