Any women out there use some kind of cream for stretch marks that are already out there?As in you use the cream to make them less noticable? I have been usuing this store brand scar gell along with working out and it has really been helping. So what works for you if anything? Or have you tried something that didn't work?

It is believed that smearing the area with egg white and letting it dry before washing off with ice cold water regularly can help in getting rid of stretch marks completely.

If you massage your body regularly with coconut and almond oil, it will keep stretch marks away. Consult a doctor to start with a daily dose of Vitamin E capsules. Vitamin E is believed to improve stretch marks. Or, add a couple of vitamin E capsules to your body massage oil.

I haven't heard of anything out there that actually works and really never tried any but would love something that would even help a bit . I have stretch marks over top of stretch marks from having all my children and my stomach is such a mess from it that it really is gross to look at . What is the name of the cream you use ? I would be willing to give anything a try if I even knew it would help a bit .

It's just a store brand stretch mark gell from wallgreens. It's $6.00 and it's the only thing that works. The only bad thing is it's sticky so I only wear it at nite.But still whatever works ya know.lol

why yes i do. i use palmers cocoa butter! it really works before and after pregnancy. anyone who hasn't tried it should. also for those stubburn marks a temporary solution would be tanning ifyou can that is. but seriously try palmers creams they will work but you have to apply them generously every day and night.
