How to help my stretch marks?

Have you ladies ever found a product that worked? I have them all over after DD was born and they are the really thick and long kind. Thanks.

  • Bio Oil and time helped fade mine to the point that I was comfortable wearing a bikini again.

  • Try Mederma stretch mark therapy kinda expensive but worth it

  • Nothing will work on them. They MAY fade over time, but, they are permanent unless you have a tummy tuck and have that part of your skin removed.

  • I heard that pure vitamin E oil works (kinda pricey). You have to rub in on at least twice a day for a few months. Other than that a tummy tuck. Tanning helps them not be as noticeable.

  • I am the same way I didn't have any stretch marks at all until I had my first baby 5 years ago. I have them on the back of my thigh I have them on my inner thigh. I have them on my private even, all over my belly I even have them on my boobs I have not found anything that works.

  • i have yet to find any type of lotion or cream that helps :( over time they fade, or you can go to a dermatologist and they have some creams that are more hardcore than those at the store, and you can also have laser surgery to help fade them, but they will always be there
