  • I don't think you can ever really get rid of them, they will fade over the years. I got stretch marks on my butt and boobs, thankfully not on my stomach. But mine are still there, two of my dd's got stretch marks pretty bad on their stomachs, and they hate them, but they are marks of motherhood!

  • Stretch marks can be REDUCED in appearence but will never DISAPPEAR. Cocoa and shea butters, or products with cocoa or shea butter in them, will help to reduce them.

    They will also fade over time...meaning a few years, not months.

  • I was lucky enough to only get them on my thighs. I've been using the Anew Clinical Stretch Mark Smoother about six months now and they've faded completely down and the texture is 10 times better. They started out deep and rigid feeling and now they're almost even with the rest of my skin. Its a great product and if you use it correctly and keep using it for the recommended amount of time you'll be thankful you did! you can get free shipping on my site with code FSANY using direct delivery straight to your home :) GL!

  • There is an awesome essential oil called HELICHRYSUM it actually rebuilds scar tissue. If you are interested I'll send you the web site. Also you should dilute it a little with a carrier oil like rosehip seed oil, almond oil or olive oil a few drops of helicrhrysum to the carrier oil. If you are pregnant or lactating to not use it. To check it for allergic reactions apply to the inside of your elbow and wait for 24 hours to see what happends if no adverse reactions then proceed. You should see results in 3 months.
