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 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
