  • i just recently had a baby to so i know what your going through with all the stretch marks i have them on my stomach and sides.. i just recently started using this bio oil stuff, my aunt introduced me to it, it is supposed to get rid of them or reduce them in like 3 months. a friend of my used it on her really bad ones and they were gone in like 3 months time. you can get bio oil at any pharmacy, its kinda expensive but it will be worth it.

  • Well, you will probably never actually get rid of them, but they should get better over time. You just made a child woman . . . give your body some time! I used Palmers Cocoa Butter Formula (really greasy) every night when I was pregnant, and Palmers Cocoa Butter lotion every morning and I don't have a single stretch mark . . . it can't hurt to try it.

  • Never ever having kids...But if you must ( i had 5) Ive heard coco butter or any lotion really can try and lessen what you get. Some women have stretchy skin and never get them at all. Hope your one.

  • I have the same problem! I have them pretty bad on the sides of my tummy and have been using maderma. It is supposed to work in like a month. Hopefully it will but I'm not counting on it!LOL

  • Well i bought this cream called Cosmetyn and it reduces the stretch marks and makes them less noticable the only issue is it is 90 dollars a bottle
