  • Some skin types just get them easier than others and it sucks. I have them on the sides of my breasts. I think they showed up when I was 13 or so. I don't know any miracle creams to help you with them, but I've been told keeping your skin moisturized can help prevent them.

  • You should check out Arbonne's RE9 body serum and body lotion. I can send you pics of a before and after using these two. PM me if you are interested in seeing the pics of getting more info.

  • I had stretch marks on my hips at 16, and I was stick-skinny then. It just happened because of a growth spurt.

    But do not worry, even without lotions and tricks, stretch marks fade, and eventually blend in fairly well with your skin.

  • Cocoa butter and oils are really more for prevention. If you already have stretch marks why don't you get a bottle of the Anew Clinical Stretch Mark Smoother use code fsany for free direct delivery shipping. I have deep red ones on my thighs and after a few months use, I'm not even kidding, they're about half as deep and faded to flesh tone. Its a huge improvement! The thing with stretch marks is its really genetics. Some people can gain 50 pounds in pregnancy and nothing happens at all. Others can gain 5 pounds when they're a teenager and they pop up! Good luck!

  • I use Palmer's Tummy Butter. Its for use during and after pregnancy. I got some stretch marks on my belly after I had already delivered. And I've been using it for a couple months now, twice a day, and they're almost gone.

  • I have had stretch marks on mu inner thighs since I was a teen. I am not a big person, it is just where I always lose and gain my weight!
