Keep­ing your skin hy­drated and sup­ple can help to pre­vent or re­duce the ap­pear­ance of stretch marks. Here are some home care prod­ucts that do the job

Strivectin SD Ad­vanced In­ten­sive Con­cen­trate for Wrin­kles & Stretch Marks

This dual-pur­pose treat­ment uses NIA-114 tech­nol­ogy — in­vented by skin can­cer sci­en­tists over 35 years of re­search — to strengthen and re­build the skin bar­rier and en­er­gise skin cells. It was orig­i­nally made to counter stretch marks but has also be­come known for fight­ing wrin­kles.

Clar­ins Stretch Mark Con­trol

Made with in­gre­di­ents such as crow­berry, cen­tella asi­at­ica and nat­u­ral triglyc­erides, this works three ways. It sup­pos­edly slows down the break­down of col­la­gen and elastin, re­duces the size and colour of new stretch marks, and hy­drates skin.

Bio­therm Biover­ge­tures

A cream-gel, this has mois­tur­is­ing agents and botan­i­cal oils to make skin more re­silient and elas­tic in the case of it over-stretch­ing dur­ing preg­nancy.

La Mer The Con­cen­trate

Model-host Chrissy Teigen was re­ported to have used this to pre­vent stretch marks dur­ing her re­cent preg­nancy. The rea­son: This face treat­ment is be­lieved to strengthen skin and speed up its nat­u­ral heal­ing process.
