  • Genetics. Nothing you can put on to stop them.

  • That is the million dollar question. Most women get them and, yes, heredity plays a big part in it. Despite claims to the contrary, no cream/oil prevents them. They might help, but the women who used them and didn't get stretch marks probably wouldn't have gotten marks no matter what. However, whatever you use will make your skill feel good!
