Does anyone have any advice for helping to diminish stretch marks or for getting stretched out skin back to normal? I have used the Burts Bees Belly Butter and Palmers during pregnancy, but after I had the twins the belly went back down so quickly that the skin still isn't quite back to normal. I bought some skin firming lotion, but does anyone have any other suggestions of things that have worked?

unfortunately stretch marks are deep scar tissue.. only surgery will completely remove them..



as for regaining elasticity.. depends alot on your age.. and how hard your willing/able to work on it...



some people swear by things like cocnut butter and BIO oil during pregancy.. but i think its just that all bodies are different..



try to remember they are scars of love which is beautiful... eventually they WILL fade... and youd be suprised how many men actually love the soft feel of them..



but i can relate to depression of looking into a mirror and seeing horrible marks everywhere...



keep your chin up.. your beautiful..

pure vitamin e oil shrunk my stretch marks from just under 1 cm to 1 mm. They are almost completely gone. Some are completely gone. It is really sticky and difficult to apply. I had to apply it twice daily for a month or two to see any results. Also, do toning exercises and eat a healthy diet with plenty of fish, avocados, etc.

This is one of those things that happened to fall on my lap. After 19 years since my twins, and subsequently two other pregnancies I am almost jumping up and down. My twin skin has bugged me for years, and insurance doesn't pay for the surgery. I became a Rodan and Fields Consultant in the summer, and after seeing the amazing before and after pictures of Redefine with the Amp MD roller and night renewing serum, I decided to give it a try on my abdomen. The picture that grabbed my attention was of a treated turkey neck. I've only been using it for a week and I'm seeing results already! I will be taking a 1 month progress picture in 3 weeks, and will be willing to share it. Just email your request to lmagann4@yahoo.com. Anyone wanting to try it out for themself can find the products at lmagann1.myrandf.com. With a 60 day money back guarantee there's really nothing to lose. May also call(985)714-3278

Thanks! My husband is wonderful and really doesn't mind them at all and I do feel like I got the stretch marks for a wonderful reason and it was well worth it! I was just curious if anyone used any of the products out there and thought they actually worked. I think I will try the vitamin e oil and keep using the firming lotion along with doing my crunches. I don't mind the belly so much because at least it's pretty flat and easy to hide under clothes I just don't quite feel like I'm totally back to myself yet because of it, but I'm sure in a few months it will look much better!
