They're not preventable. It's in your genes. You can try to soften their blow, but you can't prevent them.
I am using palmers lotion with elastin and whatever else to try to help my skin during this endeavor it's being put thru, but it's certainly not keeping them away, nor "fixing" any old ones.

I just lather up with lotion right after my shower.

I just do my usual routine of castor oil after my shower.

Nothing. They're part of life and they don't bug me... Except when they itch. Oh I hate itching so I put my Nourish lotion on and that helps. But for the stretch marks themselves: meh, who cares?

If they are gonna happen they are gonna happen. I just use coconut oil to moisturize.
