  • Honey, stretch marks are for life. All you can do is wait for them to lighten a little.

  • Stretch marks are genetic you can use all the cocoa butter in the world, if you're meant to get them you will

  • The real Palmers cocoa butter with vitamin E. If you had used vaseline during pregnancy every day in the morning, after bath and before bed... in other words kept it nice and greasy it wouldn't have never left a mark at all. If you are black the marks will not lighten up that much. I hope this helps.

  • vitamin E oil helps reduce the appearance some. Mostly time and some women believe exposure to the sun helps reduce their apearance.

  • Good luck, in time they'll fade, until then let me know if you find something, i've been unsucessful in that department.
