How to Make Your Own Stretch Mark Cream

Back when I was pregnant the first time, I started worrying about stretch marks and what I could do about them.
I know, plenty of people said “don’t worry” and “it’s a right of passage” and “you’ve got to earn those” and all other sorts of random things…
I’m not really one that cares much for right’s of passage and I honestly don’t think stretch marks are something thatneed to be earned.
I really think it is OK to care about your appearance AND I think if there is a way to prevent or get rid of stretch marks that is simple, natural and pain free then I’m all for that!
A first, I was just using rosehip oil on it’s own. It was effective, but I found it to be quite expensive and after 2 failed pregnancies, I just couldn’t justify the cost of continuing to buy it.
So, I decided to see what other options were out there, and found it is really simple to make your own cream out of a combination of rosehip and coconut oil.
As for whether it prevents stretch marks… I don’t know. I do know that I already had a few stretch marks on my *ah hem* upper thighs (just one of the joys assoicated with putting on an losing weight with each miscarriage) and since I started using this concoction, they have faded considerably 🙂
To make this cream, all you need is:
Super easy and simple. I think making up my last batch probably only took about 10 minutes.
I hope this mix works for you too if you try it!
Just a quick word of caution though, it may transfer onto your clothes if you put it on straight before getting dressed for the day, so I would suggest using it at night, before you get into bed instead.
Lastly, I also use this as a general moisturiser too… I find it much more effective than other moisturisers (plus, I like that it doesn’t have any chemicals in it, it’s really cheap to make, and it goes a really long way!)
Before you go, I would love to know… what is your go-to cream for stretch marks?
Do you have a favourite moisturiser?
Do you make your own?
If you know of a similar mixture that doesn’t mark clothes and is good for day-time use I would love to know what it is!
