How can I prevent stretch marks during pregnancy?
I'm in the first trimester of my pregnancy and my belly already starts to show. I don't want to end up covered in stretch marks like my mother and my sister. Does drinking water do any good?
Stretch marks are actually a visible scar that occurs when your skin is stretched to the point of tearing. Some women get them and some women don't. There are many, many treatments for prevention and cure, but none of them have been proven to work. If it makes you feel better, you can keep your belly really well moisturized with cocoa butter or some other good-quality lotion. Good luck!
