I have been trying to find something that helps with the stretch marks. I have tried cocoa butter lotion, baby lotion. And some others but nothing is even helping. Do you ladys have any ideas?
Thank you everyone for helping me put my mind at ease about my stretch mark.

I've heard good things about Bio-Oil.

Sweetie, stretch marks are basically tears in the flesh beneath the skin. Surgery is the only way to remove them. They will fade with time but otherwise they're yours for life. I consider them a badge of honor. It is an honor and privilege to be a mom!

the only treatments that work for stretch marks are retinoic acid and laser therapy.

RA is not good - causes redness and irritation, you have to avoid the sun, and it's not permanent.

laser therapy has excellent results but is expensive.

no over the counter cream or rubbing therapy will work bec the damage is deep under the surface.

I know. I guess my biggest problem is the baby fat. I just want something to help make them less noticable.

Embrace them! Mine are badges of honor for giving birth to two wonderful sons. At first I tried to minimize them and then have up. Lol
