TRYING TO GET RID OF MY STRETCH MARKS AND FAILING MISERABLY!

Posted by   + Show Post

OK, so my daughter is 14 months and while I was pregnant I ended up with what looked like a map of all the roads in the US on my stomach and lower back. I used cocoa butter when I was pregnant and still ended up with stretch marks so I bought some of the tummy butter they sell in the pregnancy stores and it helped a little bit but there still seems to be a bunch that are being stubborn that refuse to go away. Do any of you know any other products that are good for stretch marks??

Making them go away will not happen. Welcome to motherhood. Lol. I've heard that Mederma will lighten them. But you have to use almost immediately after scars appear.

I wanted to post this for you too, Mederma Stretch Mark Therapy is suppose to be really good and works within a few weeks.

I just thought about this:

Pure Shea butter the ones that you pick up from the African Shops will probably be very helpful too.
