if so, should I start now while I am still pregnant and getting stretch marks or should I wait until I am finished having the baby before I start exfoliating? I am just afraid that exfoliation will irritate the skin further and make them worse. I am currently almost 39 weeks pregnant and the stretch marks are getting WORSE by the DAY! Argh! Thanks for the help! Any other tips would be greatly appreciated too - I am already using Palmer's Cocoa Butter and Palmer's Oil daily, and I have Avon's "Anew" stretch mark smoother for after the baby's born.
