My poor pregnant friend is in desperate need of advice for soothing her stretch marks, she is due in 3 weeks and her belly is very itchy. Any natural products she can use to sooth the itching without drying the skin ? Many thanks in advance

Oatmeal in your bath. Great for itchy skin during pregnancy and eczema. Put some oatmeal in an old sock or a cut off piece of your tights tied into a knot. This allows the oatmeal to do it's magic but make it easier to clean up afterwards.

Might sound silly but solar oil is great for replenishing moisture which should stop the itching. I've used it on my scars and they've got sooo much better!

Mamma mio do a cream tummy rub butter I think it's called. I did train in it but it was a while ago so have forgotten alot of stuff.

Clarins tonic oil. It is fantastic. It's especially for pregnancy and weight loss helps keep skin firm and stops stretch marks from appearing. It really is amazing and lasts forever! Hth!

Hi

Another one that gets fab results during pregnancy is Japanese camellia oil.

I know Elemis sell one but it's pretty pricey...Eve Taylor also sell the oil if you are registered with them...may be worth a try.

I used vaseline intensive repair cream (any moisturiser with vitamin e works just as well) pretty much as soon as i started showing, on my bump at least twice a day, didnt suffer any itching by the end of it and dont have hardly any strech marks, had more before i was pregnant than i did as a result of it! Dont think it matters too much what cream you use as any will help the skin to stretch without being too uncomfortable, i just chose one with vitamin e as i know it helps repair skin and reduce strech marks. Hth xx
