I used cocoa butter, bio oil, everything and anything throughout my pregnancy and my stomach hips and thighs still look like a warzone, my skin was not made to stretch!! I am 21 and my bikini days are well and truly over! the best cure i have found yet is to just pick up my son and cuddle and kiss him and every stretch mark is worth it!

Nothing is going to get rid of them, but it can be lighted or faded. Mederma is good because of the active ingredient of onion extract that helps realign collegen in the skin. Coco butter is the cheapest way to help. You can try any type of collegen creme or lotion. I have not tried the Bio Oil but I might check it out. It will take a while to see some results so whatever method you use, make it a routine.

you will never fully get rid of them but they will fade in time,,, in the mean time just moisturise, Bio Oil served me well whilst i was pregnant and i bearly got any.

There's no way to get rid of them but you can fade them so that they match the color of your skin by using stretch mark creams like cocoa butter. Locally, at a health food store, they have a greatest mothers belly cream that is specifically meant for mommies who want to get rid of their stretch marks! They will take at least a year to fade.

there is lots of stuff out there but short of having them cut off nothing is really gonna work they are a badge of honor carry them with pride !!!! sometimes lasers and peels from a dermatoligist might make them less visable

I use the Mustela 'Stretch Marks Double Action' cream which seems to lighten them slowly, I have also heard the Nivea cream works, and a lot of woman seem to swear by the Bio Oil which I think I might try soon myself. GL ! : )

either leave them and they will fade on their on over time...or use bio oil or any kind of moisturiser
