My daughter just gave birth last week and is pretty depressed about the stretch marks she got. Anything she can use to minimize appearance or get rid of them without cosmetic surgery?

  • Tell her to try the Anew Clinical Advanced Stretch Mark Smoother from Avon. Its usually $25 but its on sale for $12.50 this week. You can try it at It really made a huge difference with both depth and color of mine. Remind her that it does take time they won't go away over night but if she uses the cream correctly she'll notice a difference.

  • Vitamin E oil. I heard Bio Oil works pretty well also.. I used cocoa butter for a while, it works a bit but not as good as pure vitamin E.

  • I would try cocoa butter for stretch. It's supposed to be inexpensive and effective for treating stretch marks.
