How to avoid stretch marks

Message length 300 characters recommended

When I was having my kids, I read that if you rub cocoa butter on your stomach all day everyday and you would not get stretch marks. I still got them. When I had my daughter, I read that if you rubbed olive oil on your belly, you won't get more stretch marks or the ones that you have will go away. So not true.

But then I read an article that said that stretch marks are a hereditary thing. My mom never got stretch marks (and she was 100 lbs when she had me and gained like 45 lbs), yet my grandma did get stretch marks. So I guess, if it's hereditary, it must skip a generation!
