I'm with the others, they're gonna fade to white whether you use anything or not... I've never used anything but mine are all faded to white. I've heard way too many people tell me they've tried everything on the market & spent all this money in the process & it does nothing so I decided I'll just take their advice & save my money. LOL!

Once you get them they are yours for ever! They DO fade over time, becoming less and less noticible. Stretchmarks are caused by a breackdown of collegin in the skin--its the stuff that makes skin stretchy. Vitamin E and products that stimulate collegin will help reduce stretchmark appearances, making them less visible. Just know that the damage is done and little can be done to make them disappear. Reduce and hide--that's as good as you can do, unfortunately...

I tried every oil and lotion, for me they didn't work at all! My sister had three children she had stretch marks carrying all of her children. She uses sunbeds and honestly you cannot tell she even had stretch marks! I tried but didn't think it'd work for me, I only went on a sunbed about 6 times and my stretch marks are hardly visible any more. I do not go on any more but it did help!

Mine are faded white already but sometimes my belly reminds me of a deflated balloon wish they would disappear some more bc im so self conscious about my belly now.

I had twins a year ago and they are fading on their own. My tummy still looks like a topographical map. I tried the tummy butter and bio oil only to find out I am allergic to it. So now I just deal with it. I call it my mommy badge.

All I can say is they fade from red to white over the years. Bio oil can help but it will not get rid of them totally. Be proud of your mummy scars it's all part of bringing children into the world. You can't get rid so learn to love um!

Nothing really works unfortunately. If you're gonna get them, you will. I tried every product on the market and spent hundreds with my first pregnancy. It made no difference. I'm covered from below my chest to the back of my knees in masses of stretch marks :D
