  • There really is no true answer to this. If there was it would be very public because everyone wants to know. You can try vitamin E, coconut oil, drinking lots of water and they sell various expensive lotions and creams. Every body is different. They do fade over time but I don't know of any magic way to un stretch skin.

  • my nurse told me the severity of stretch marks is genetic, so thats why some ladies have no stretch marks and some have deep, dark ones. all the creams in the world wont fix them. maybe a tummy tuck? my mom gave birth to her last kid over 26 years ago and she still has them, faded and light, but they're there.

    Are you a teen or do you have a teen?
    In any case, you had a kid. Deal.

  • By waiting until they fade.

    They're scar tissue from stretching skin. There is no way to 'make them less visible' other than covering them up with clothing.

  • Don't take your clothes off. That's the only way I know. Besides, I'm pretty proud of mine. They are the result of 3 of the most special gifts a lady ever received!
