Stretch mark remedies?

I've been looking into the natural remedies for curing stretch marks.

I've heard good things about vicks vapor-rub and cling wrap as well as baking soda and lemon juice, also with the cling wrap. Anything you've tried that's non-invasive that showed improvement?

Thanks in advance ladies!

I've heard that nothing actually works other than surgery.

You can lighten them, and they may shrink if you're bigger and then lose a bunch of weight, but they won't completely go away.

I know they won't go away completely, they're techincally scars, but anything that would reduce them greatly is what I'm looking for.

Dermaroller works for me then afterwards I use bio oil. I've learned a long time ago that they'll just fade whenever they feel like it tho lol stubborn little suckers my stretchmarks are.

I want to know this too. Mine are awful. The ones on my lower stomach lightened up a bunch, but  the ones on the upper half are still very pink, ugh. I hate them =/

I would recommend Tummy Honey Cream...it fades the marks pretty well and it's not too expensive
