Unfortunately, there is no treatment that can completely eliminate or erase stretch marks but the earlier you treat them, the better chance you have of reducing their appearance.   A classic that really, truly works in the prevention of stretch marks and isn’t even touted for such a remedy is Clarins Huile Tonic Body Treatment Oil. $54  It’s been the best kept secret with the maternity set for almost a decade.

Now if you want to prevent stretch marks to begin with, it’s best to keep any weight changes slow and steady and to avoid adding hormones to your body (like birth control).  Keep skin well hydrated and eat foods rich in Vitamins C and E and Zinc.  They all increase collagen production and aid in supple skin.  Massage skin with a massage brush whenever possible too.  Then ask your mom if she has them, because if she does, you might just be out of luck.
