I have dealt with stretch marks since puberty. I tried every kind of lotion and oil I could find including Bio Oil and nothing worked. Everyone told me there was no way to get rid of them so I gave up. After having my son, I googled it and started trying everything - again. I found a video that said to cut up a lemon and rub the juice on the stretch marks, leave for ten minutes then add lotion (they said cocoa butter I think). I have been doing that for a little over a week and they are already MUCH lighter. Even the ones I have had for years and was told there was no hope for. It seems like it is just a guessing game since everyone has different skin types. Lemons are cheap though so hopefully this keeps working lol.

Sadly you can't get rid of stretch marks. They do turn white in time so they seem faded. Mine have faded, Bio Oil is great stuff you can buy in any pharmacy I absolutely recommend it!

I use bio oil and i have also tried this lotion called tummy butter, but i like the bio oil better. It helps to fade them but stretch marks never really go away sadly.

well stretchmarks can fade, but they will always be there. I tried everything. I mean like everything. Homemade mixtures to $50 bottle of lotion! Honestly they will look better if you get plenty of Vitamin D, E, K, Omega 3, and water and exercise. I got very severe stretchmarks when I was pregnant. I was very skinny and gained a LOT of weight. (70lbs) Then, lost it all and now left with droopy wrinkles and huge stretchmarks. I've found they look much better after taking really good care of my body with these vitamins. (mostly I just eat a lot more fruit and veggies during the day when I feel the need to snack and I take supplements). Exercise does a lot too. Your muscles will eventually start to get back to where they are supposed to be and your skin will be more firm as time goes on. I've also used Mederma regularly. It faded the stretchmarks some. You are pretty much just going to have to learn to live with it or get a huge tattoo to cover it up! LOL
