you can thank your family for stretch marks. you can use cocoa butter and whatever else, but they are something you are going to get either way because its a part of you. the lotions just help in reducing the redness. they are just another thing you inherit from you mother and so on...

Eventually they will turn the same color as your skin instead of red or purple , and until then TAN TAN TAN haha its about the only way to hide them , also this amazing product called bio oil i had my baby 2 months ago and started useing it 2 times a day every day and its working amazingly!! there already becomeing smaller and less noticeable, definitly reccomend it. And i definitly want to send a big @$%# you to palmers coco butter! and stretch mark cream!!!!! i used it ever i mean ever single day more then twice the hole time i was pregnant and i still got stretchmarks! GRR lol
Palmers is a gift from God... I used it while and still after being prego and mine have slowly faded to my skin color. Nobody ever notices them. I had skin irritations while I was prego and could not stop scratching my tummy so they looked horrible afterwards. The oil that they make helps so much for stuff like that.

I got really horrible stretch marks everywhere, yes everywhere. I found that light tanning, about once every other week after time will lighten mine. I am not sure if this works for everyone though. I have also found that they are finally becoming almost skin color instead of red/purple as they have been the last four years.
P.S. yes it is very irritating!

I didnt get stretch marks til the week before my baby came. Due to scratching like crazy from poison ivy..im highly allergic! In time they will fade. After I had my daughter I saw how bad they really were-extremely red! :p but 7 months later they are hardly noticable. Dont worry though because All women get them! Just remember you recieved something way more important

I totally feel ya! I got really bad stretch marks all across my belly. I tried everything when I was pregnant, nothing every worked. And yes, It totally drives me crazy that some get none but oh well. If you find anything, let me know...I would love to get rid of mine. :)

oh don't be mad but I only got 2 stretch marks, but I used Palmer;s coaco butter lotion everyday on my belly and legs while I was pregnant. You can use the came thing to help stretch marks afterwards, and the palmer's line carries lotions specifically for stretch marks. hopefully that helps.
