Strech marks after preganacy?

hiya! i was wondering what can be done about the stretch marks on the stomach. i have a bunch of small ones, there light but i still want to get rid of them.
i have a medium build, and im working out 30min a day to try to get back into shape. i apply some cream to the stretch marks once a day, but i haven't seen any differences in it as of yet. ive heard some crazy ideas of what to do, like scrub them a lot in the shower to get off dead skin and such, and even putting vicks vapor rub on them. what did you do for your stretch marks and what worked and didnt work?

  • BioOil worked for mine. They didn't ever go away totally, but they lightened enough that I was comfortable wearing a bikini at the beach again.
