post pregnancy marks?

What are some good ways to make stretch marks less noticeable? Some one recommend Scargaurd, anyone else have any good products that I can use? Have you used any that really work?
And if I tan will it make them less noticeable?

  • Well...I know when you tan it makes them more noticable. Because everything gets darker but the stretch marks stay light. I have used Bio-Oil thru my pregnancy and only have a few around my belly button.

  • I used Palmer's lotion and that made them lighter...if I'd stuck with it they probably would have been even less noticeble. I think it says it's firming butter or something like that on the bottle. I got it at Motherhood Maternity and have seen it at Walmart.

  • I used cocoa butter 5 times a day during my pregnancy and I have tons of stretch marks. I think it has more to due with your skin that anything else. go to and search stretch marks. They said some ingredient that has to be in it for it to work. Can't remember what i was though. Good luck.
