You’d be con­sid­ered very lucky if you sailed through preg­nancy with­out a sin­gle stretch­mark. They are formed when the col­la­gen and elastin fi­bres deep within the skin stretch and tear, and you’ll usu­ally find them on your hips, thighs, stom­ach and even on your breasts. Palmer’s Stretch­mark Ex­pert, Jennifer Leonard says that mois­tur­is­ing daily is the best way to look af­ter your skin and keep it healthy. “But, the best solution is to pre­vent them oc­cur­ring in the first place – preven­tion is al­ways bet­ter than cure!” Choose a lo­tion that is spe­cially for­mu­lated to in­crease elas­tic­ity and re­mem­ber to ap­ply re­li­giously.
