Stretch marks comes with being a mother right, how hard is it to get rid of them? I am trying to get rid of my strtch marks, they aren't too bad. I used the Tummy Butter from Palmers when I was prenant. I used it throughout my whole pregnancy I applied it twice a day but still at the ending of my nine months I saw some stretch marks coming. So now I am looking for products to get rid of them. I tried Bio Oil it help a bit I used it for two months and now its finish so now I want to try a next product. Has anyone tried to get rid of stretch marks, did it work or did you give up on trying? Do yo think its possible to get rid of them by using creams and oils?

As in my case, I still have lots of stretch marks from pregnancy. A friend have told me that once you have stretch marks, it's already hard to get rid of them.

I'm not sure if it is hereditary or if Palmers Cocoa Butter Massage Stretch Mark Cream worked cause I don't have any stretch marks. What I have is the linea nigra (a dark vertical line that appears on the abdomen during about three quarters of all pregnancies) and some dark spots in my tummy caused by scratching but are lightening up as time goes by.

I have use it an it works for me ,Palmers Cocoa Butter works.I did have a lot of stretch marks and now i only have a few,because i use Palmers Cocoa Butter and coco fat for a few months.If you have stretch marks and sweat a lot its best for you to use at night when going to bed. but is a woman is pregnant and dont want any stretch mark on the tummy,during pregnancy she can use olive oil rub her tummy to prevent it.I have learn a few things from my mother and grandmother when i was pregnant.

vitamin E. Buy the liquid gels of just vitamin E, puncture the capsule with a pin and use the oil directly on the stretch marks. vitamin E is used in helping to heal the skin. I used this to minimize scarring after having surgery. only my biggest incision is noticeable on a regular basis. if i do get tan my other two smaller incisions seem to pop out.

vaseline and butter/vanilla-flavored lotion were my favorites before, and true enough they helped me not to developed stretch marks..

Creams and oils as well as exercising. I think the key point is to keep it moisturized. Avon also has a product for stretch marks, I have it around here somewhere, but it hardly helped me. I've been losing weight and it's helped with mine, they are getting longer but lighter. In any case, I've never been pregnant, this is just fat stretch marks. Youc an also try Burt's Bees, I believe they have a roll on cocoa butter!
