  • just don't put a ton of lotion on your self. IT will soften the skin and you will get more stretch marks. Just do coco butter every so often. Like every few days.

  • they will fade so much that eventually you will only see them in certain light. as far as putting on too much lotion, that will not soften the skin and make you get them. Softening the skin allows it to stretch without tearing, which is kinda what stretch marks are. Put on as much as you want! :)
