  • Same here! I just continue to use pure shea butter as I did while I was pregnant. Not sure how much it helped but some did shrink and fade. Good luck!

  • Keep your skin hydrated... any kind of lotion can help b/c it helps maintain your skin's natural elasticity. As your tummy gets back to it's original shape & size your stretch marks will look a little smaller. If they're dark, you can try one of those scar reducing creams. Some people swear that they work.

  • nope nothing, like the other said you can use shea or cocoa butter to lighten them up if they are dark, but in time time will happen anyway dont waste your time with lotions and potions that promise to get rid of stretchmarks all they do is make the manufactor rich. wear your stretch mark like a badge of honor b/c you have the greatest gift to show for them
