Bio-Oil is great for preventing stretch marks in the first place. Many women opt for it because it contains no preservatives. Instead, Bio-Oil uses a blend of essential oils and vitamins to help improve the elasticity of skin. You can use it every day during pregnancy to prevent stretch marks, but If you already have them, you can use it later on to help reduce their appearance. It has been voted the #1 skincare product many years in a row. Bio Oil costs around $20.00 on the Bio-Oil website.
