Reducing stretch marks and "pouches"

What did you use after pregnancy to help reduce stretch marks and "pouches"? I did not get ANY stretch marks until my belly started shrinking back down and am looking at a couple different products to use (with elastin and collagen).

Anyone have any suggestions? What did/did not work for you?

  • Get a body shaper. Those get the figure back better than anything you could rub on your skin. Seriously!!!

  • "stretch marks" you don't get from shrinking skin. It means they just showed themselves and you always had them if they were more noticible when your belly shrank :)

  • look it up on the internet. you'll get tons to look at. i do advise to get a one piece one. one that covers the thighes up to the shoulders. the first time i got them i got ones that were the top and bottom seperate...but it wasn't as comfortable as a one piece one. they are pricey though. but so worth it.
