Re: Body lotion

this isn't a lotion but zinc is great for skin elasticity and if you are zinc deficient you are more likely to get stretch marks.

Unfortunately I have tons of stretch marks (except on my belly thank goodness) and I use a mixture of jojoba oil and coconut oil every day and take my zinc religiously. I think my issue was that I started out 15 pounds heavier than I normally am and then gained weight on top of that. I had intended to lose the 15 lbs prior to the pregnancy but didn't try very hard.
