What to do about stretch marks?

I am a 19 year old mommy of two with a body of a woman who has had 10 kids. I have extreme stretch marks.... I got them during my second pregnancy with my 10lb son. I was 100lbs when I got pregnant with my first and after I had him I got back down to 135lbs... and 3 months later I was pregnant with my second son and gained almost 80lbs. I am currently like 150lbs and have strectch marks all over. Is there anything that anyone has tried that has really made them appear less noticable? I'm not looking to get rid of them so that I can wear my old cloths... they just look really bad. ANy suggestions?

  • Pure Vitamin E oil (very sticky), apply twice daily. You will notice results after 1 month.

  • Sunbathing...sunlight is really helpful and good for your skin..just dont overdo it of course but getting sunlight on them everyday will help.

  • Rodan and fields make a product called "REVERSE" it is for fading, it would work on Stretch mark too!

  • I used tummy honey products on my belly while I was pregnant, it seemed to help me not get bad stretch marks. I was already pre-stretched anyway having weighed over 300lbs earlier in my life.Mama B makes it, for after being pregnant. I got mine at a baby shop and it smelled so good. i use the tummy honey butter on my nails and feet and its wonderful, try the stretch mark fader they have.
