While stretch marks cannot be completely prevented, some natural oils can help moisturize the skin and improve i'ts elasticity. Here are a few of our favourite natural oils during pregnancy:

1. Coconut Oil: Coconut oil is known for its moisturizing properties and is often used to improve skin elasticity. Apply a small amount of organic, extra virgin coconut oil to the belly and other areas prone to stretch marks.

2. Bio Oil: A blend of plant oils with Vitamin A and E, this all time classic stimulates the growth of new skins cells while soothing and calming. Helps prevent the formation of stretch marks.

3. Weleda Stretch Mark Oil: Often praised for its effectiveness during pregnancy. Helps to retain elasticity as the skin stretches and to correct the appearance of stretch marks. Contains geranium and Lavender valued for their skin healing properties along with organic arnica flowers renowned for their natural anti inflammatory properties. 

4. Sweet Almond Oil: Sweet almond oil is a lightweight oil that is easily absorbed by the skin. It helps keep the skin stay hydrated and help reduce itchiness. Massage a small amount of almond oil onto your belly and other areas prone to stretch marks.
