does anyone have any tricks or ideas on how to make stretchmarks less noticable?

i know that you cannot get rid of them but there are so many kinds of lotions out there i was just wondering if anyone knew of ones that actually work really well because i have them EVERYWHERE! and i mean like everywhere. from the back of my knees all the way up to my boobs pretty much. lol. a few spots like my upper abdomen dont have them but pretty much everywhere else has them.

  • I used BioOil and it helped lighten mine to the point I was comfortable wearing a bikini again. (they aren't gone, just very light)

  • Tanning does not work...it may look less noticeable from some angles but it gives stretch marks the appearance of depth. Sunless tanner will mask them.
