  • I used vitamin e lotion before and after. If you recently had a baby the pain will slowly go away. My stretch marks were still tender before i got pregnant again (after a year) but it wasn't bad at all.

  • you're stretch marks will never go away. it is essentially tissue scarring but keeping moisturized and using self tanner helps. also, exercise sometimes helps.

  • Embrace your mommy marks. I will admit that I don't have the problem (just one that DH claims doesn't exist on my right hip.) so I'm looking from the outside.
    The only "remedy" I've heard helped is surgery or bleaching.
