The time to treat the inevitable stretch marks new mothers get is before you receive them. Prevention of stretch marks is much easier than the cure. Stretch marks are a form of scarring that occurs when the skin is stretched during pregnancy. Once you have them, they are difficult to get rid of but you can make them lighter with dedication to daily massage using shea butter cream which is excellent for this purpose.

For prevention, expectant mothers should massage their abdomen and hips daily from the 4th or 5th month to increase the elasticity of their skin. Massaging with almond oil or shea butter alone is very helpful. Adding a blend of 10 drops mandarin and 15 drops neroli essential oils to  3 tablespoons hazelnut oil and enough liquid shea butter oil to fill a 1 ounce bottle will make it even more effective. If a cream is easier for you to handle, use shea butter cream instead of the liquid.
