Okay so I didn't get stretch marks until I was in my last trimester and I can't get rid of them. I'm so self concious about it. Its just right below my belly button they look a lot better now tho. their not as bright colored (Lynnleigh-my daughter )is also 5months now tho. Im just trying to get rid of them and wanna see what everyone has to say. I've tried mederma for a while now they've toned down but still very noticeable. Any suggestions?!?

The bio oil made me break out and its very annoying to apply you feel very oily obviously and its gets everywhere and almost seems to never dry completely. Mederma faded them some, but they are still noticeable. Whats this about coffee grinds? What exactly did you mix together?

I stretch marks that look like slugs :P But!! I have accepted them as trophies, They are proof that my children are mine, I dont mind them and i think its only women that are paranoid cos my partner does not mind them anyway.. :)

I also got stretch marks in my last 2 weeks of pregnancy... blessed with my first stretch on christmas day. have any of your heard of Arbonne??? there's a cream that works wonders!!! my marks went from VERY dark purple to almost faded completely in just a few applications of the tightening cream. you can look Arbonne up online. A few of my friends sell it so i recently had a party and actually got it for free!!! hopefully this helps :o)

Im telling you use the home remedy coffee grinds stuff... it really seems to be fading a lot!!! LoL I just bought some olive oil yest. and going to use that once a day and the coffee grinds as well. I mean of course its going to take a while for them to go away but they say w/ coffee grinds it exfolidates your skin and that its just dead skin so your pretty much scratching it off.

I actually didn't get any while I was pregnant, but when I was a teen I dropped a lot of weight and I had stretchmarks, too. I used coco butter, which is actually directed toward pregnant moms to help with stretch marks. It took months to go away, but they did fade eventually,

Yeah mine are still purple it just makes me very very self concious a/b myself I cant stand it!!! I've been trying hme remedies I just googled it and got some ideas mederma is expensive so thats why I googled a/b stretch marks its much cheaper LoL. Im not sure a/b bio oil the remedy Im trying is coffee grinds mixed w/ lotion and you rub it on s.marks everyday for 60seconds. It seems to be working fine for me its making the color fade 8-D Im willing to try anything and everything.

stretch marks are more a permanent thing than something treatable, some lotions and oils lighten them but they are still there

i need some suggestions too. i didnt get stretch marks until the last three weeks and its all around my belly button. i think its gross. i'm glad to know the mederma works a bit because i was wondering if i should try it. i heard bio oil is good for stretch marks. or is it only for preventing it?
