  • Your stretch marks will fade a lot in about a year. Your only 6 months postpartum so they still probably look red and overwhelming but really, they only get better with time. Tanning can cover stretch marks really well in most people and keep using the Cocoa butter and keep it moisturized. It's better than not using it at all.
    TrilastinSR is suppose to work really well and I heard some mom's on here say it was great and worked better than anything else. You have to buy it online and it's about $70 for a month supply. Not cheap.

  • Time will fade them. That's about all there is.

  • Time. And Bio Oil. I had horrible stretchmarks and I started using Bio Oil at about 6 months. It doesn't make them go away, but it fades them faster. I swear, within 2 weeks I saw a drastic improvement.

  • well i have absolute terrible stretch marks. i started tanning and they are just about gone. i have tried everything fom lotions to creams to oils and nothing works. its just products that are money hungry none actually really showed much results for me. but everyones body is different.

  • I am blessed enough to not have a single stretch mark on me. I have heard that shea butter or cocoa butter help though..
