Stretch marks?

I know they're forever, but I want to at least lighten them up a bit. It's been 2 years since I had my son, but my stretch marks are awful...
I want to know, is there anything that REALLY helps? I have tried cocoa butter, and vitamin E lotion, no success.

  • Bio-Oil. Do it every morning and night and you should see big results in like 2 months.

  • everyones skin is different. mine have taken a few yrs to fade. tanning definately makes them less noticable to me but i dont like going to the taning beds..I use spray tan or jergens glow and those seem to help too.

  • Avon has a product they are discontinuing called Stretch Mark Smoother. I have sold several and everyone likes it so I don't know why we are discontinuing it unless they are bringing another one out. My website is c-theavonlady.com. Go to shop now and then type in the name of the product. If you try it and like it I still have several tubes and could do mail order if you want more.

  • Arbonne has a new anti-aging body wash and firming body cream. One of the consultants used it for 5 days and you would not believe the difference. I can send you a picture of the before and after. PM you email address and I can send you the pics. Amazing stuff
