How royalty and top celebrities deal with their pregnancy woes is not much different from how the rest of us regular folk cope. In fact, Duchess of Sussex Meghan Markle has admitted to using a popular drugstore product to deal with her stretch marks. Kim Kardashian and other A-listers are even using it too.

Bio-Oil, which is available at brick-and-mortar and online stores, costs only $9 but reportedly does a good job in preventing stretch marks from emerging and reducing scarring in those that have already come out. The Sun quoted an insider in Meghan’s circle who said that Prince Harry’s wife slathers it all over to prevent marks from coming up. She reportedly has this as her “go-to” oil because is non-greasy and does not stain her clothes or the sheets. Reportedly, Markle is a huge fan of drugstore-bought skincare items, including Elemis Japanese Camellia Body Oil and Vita Liberata Body Blur.

Markle is not the only one saying good things about this oil. Another royalty, Duchess of Cambridge Kate Middleton also swears by it. Even Kim Kardashian praised the product in the past, noting that it also makes her skin glow. Even her sister Khloe, who had just recently given birth, also uses Bio-Oil at least twice a day. The main components of the product include calendula, rosemary oils, chamomile extracts, lavender, and vitamins A and E.

According to Healthline, stretch marks are expected during pregnancy, though women can certainly do something to help control them or make them less visible. They usually appear on the stomach, hips, thighs, bottom and chest. Staying hydrated is one of the best ways to manage it, with a daily water intake of at least 72 oz for women. A diet that is rich in zinc, protein, and vitamins C, D and E also helps a lot, same with immediately treating them with creams and oils the moment they appear.
