Is it safe to use tanning lotions during pregnancy?

Is it safe to use tanning lotions during pregnancy?

No: Tanning is not safe and is not recommended for anyone. It increases the risk of skin cancer and accelerates facial and body aging. Sunscreen with titanium and zinc can help protect you from uva and uvb rays, but avoiding sun exposure is best.

Do lotions help to avoid stretch marks during pregnancy? Some women swear by them and some don't. I've read that it's a genetic thing. What does work?

Do lotions help to avoid stretch marks during pregnancy? Some women swear by them and some don't. I've read that it's a genetic thing. What does work?
