Sun is trying to teach you: he is our friend, but we must respect his power; apply a good broad-spectrum sunscreen when you go out. ...Read more

The best skin lotion to use for stretch marks after having a baby?

STRETCH MARKS: Stretch marks are very thin scars that develop when the skin is stretched for a long time.
Treatments that promise to remove stretch marks are laser resurfacing therapy & dermabrasion. I am skeptical about these. No creams or lotions work. All are pretty expensive. Nothing over-the-counter works. Check with a dermatologist to see what he/she might recommend. But I wouldn't be hopeful. ...Read more

What is a good lotion for a baby with really dry skin, but not oozing nor broken?

Lots of choices.: Your local drugstore will have a shelves full of dry skin lotions. My favorites are eucerin, aveeno, (oatmeal) cetaphil, keri, lubriderm, and cerave, but there are lots of others. Whatever you choose, apply it right after bathing, while the baby's skin is still moist, to "lock in" the moisture - because the real cure for dry skin is water, not lotion. ...Read more
