I had my daughter almost 3 months ago, and I know I shouldn't expect miracles, I've lost alot of the weight .. but I have horrible stretch marks, they're still bright purple/red. Is there anyway to speed the fading process? I've been putting cocoa & shea butter lotion on since my 3rd month in pregnancy, and it doesn't seem to help, or even work. I was just wondering if there was anything else?

actually there are no permanent ways to eliminate stretch marks but there are some products that will help them fade a bit. based on research and surveys, a lot of moms had palmer's cocoa butter on their top list to fade their marks, second was bio oil.

This may sound kinda freakish ... but if you can stomach it, drink a tot of olive oil every day and rub some on your belly just after a shower (while you're skin is still warm)!

I used Bio-Oil all through my pregnancy and did not get 1 stretch mark. I am now using it on my scar from the birth of my child, I am hoping it will heal my scar as well as it helped me with the stretch marks.

vitamin E oil. I have horrible stretch marks as well i bought the capsles and opened them and rubbed them on my belly before bed. It's helped a lot.
