Strech marks How to get rid of strech marks!

Submitted by Katarina

When you get strech marks they might at first be a red or a purple color, if its that color it means you still have a chance of removing them.

You just need some egg whites with which you rub onto your strech marks with a good layer on your skin, then wait about 15 or 20 mins untill it is completely dry, then wash is off with icey cold water.

Unfortunatly strech marks that have already turned white can not be removed.

tried and tested Comments By: loren on 2004-09-29
i have had strech marks since i was about 12 i am now 18 and over the years i have tried everything to remove my marks i dont know how i ended up with these marks as when i got them i was a skinny little 12 year old and even now i am not really fat or over weight so im guessing its just as i developed quickly they really do get me down as i cant go swimming or wear the clothes i really want to. over the past few month i have noticed they have become worse and i seem to be getting even more i have them on my brests, my hips,the tops of my arms and all the way from the top of my legs to below my knees.
i really would appreciate any help or tips on how to remove the apperance of my marks as i am getting really desparate now!!
plz help!

Okay Comments By: Sara on 2004-10-10
I don't know if it will help fade the stretch marks, I know it will tighten the skin on the breast and make them shrink a bit temperarly. Rub vitamin E on your stretch marks and after a while they will start to fade. I've also heard that vitamin K fades scars, undereye circles and stretch marks.

I have been skinny all my life, and would consider myself underweight and I have stretch marks. Im to tired to explain why we get them though.

strech marks !!!!!!!!!!!! Comments By: Anon on 2005-05-20
i feel so happy that i am not the lone person having strech marks...im 21 and started having these marks when i was 15...got it around mi butts and breast..i wish i could get rid of these marks atleast on mi breast..they look horrible...hope it doesn't turn a guy off!!
luv ya anyway Comments By: John on 2005-05-24
I can't speak for all men, but strech marks don't bother me at all. I'm looking online for a cure because my wife has strech marks that bother her a lot. She is thin and fit (110 lbs) and always has been, and hers also appeared when she was very young.

Anyway, point is that they bother her a lot but I don't even notice them. If your man loves you, your strech marks wont bother him either!

Stretch marks are forever Comments By: Jessica on 2005-06-08
Sorry everyone, but stretch marks are forever. It is the skin stretched out, and it doesn't go back. It's not like when the skin stretches from being fat, that skin bounces back, this is skin that has been stretched very quickly, and if you look at the mark, you can see that the elasticity in that part of the skin is gone. Like when an elastic band is stretched and won't go back, same thing. Good thing is that they fade with time, they get kind of whitish, and they aren't so noticable.

Just keep putting the lotion on to keep your skin elastic, so if you do have a growth spurt or a weight gain, your skin may be more flexible and stretch out without making a stretch mark. Don't bother witht he egg white thing, it will make your skin feel firmer for a short period of time, but won't take the stretch mark away.

Also, if a guy cares about you, he won't be that freaked out. Us girls are way harder on ourselves than guys are (unless the guy is a total jerk and thinks every girl should be a size 2, and who wants to be with that guy anyway?). Don't be so hard on yourselves that you miss out on having fun by hiding or not participating because of a stupid stretch mark. Guys like girls who are confident and can have fun in spite of things like that.

Look at all the guys on the beach, they don't seem to mind their beer bellies.

DONT TRY THIS Comments By: still purple on 2005-07-14
When I saw this I was a little skeptical but I thought hey I have them and dont want them (got them during a pregnancy) so I figured I would try this. Well first of all it is NASTY second STINKY and third does not work . Please save yourself the upset and dont try it!

The Truth Comments By: B on 2006-01-08
Ok I know everyone has a different say in strech marks but I've benn to a doc and this is what happends strech marks are caused from alot of different reasons EVEN STRESS! But strech marks do go away! your skin is growing and needs to make more room. The doc says that everyone gets them some may not be able to see them but you have them dont worry as your body grows and your skin gets bigger and as your body expands and grows it will get the marks but as your skin gets to a state of normal the marks will get lighter and soon fade away for sum your skin is different and the marks become WHITE and they will stay white but tanning does help the marks become the color of your skin due to the fact that your skin fragmints are changing and they need to change all together back to a normal color so dont be sun shy! And using lotion works well too!
Why Me Comments By: Anon on 2006-01-25
I am only 14 years old and i noticed small red lines on my stomach then they became bigger doi now have 2 long lines of them. i loved swimming but i dont no if i will ever go swimming again. These have really ruined my life

TipKing says: I do not think that you should have strech marks at your age. Have a chat with your doctor! Might be something else.

strech marks Comments By: vilmara on 2006-02-10
im 27 and im tried of hiding my body its so unfair looling in the miorr and seeing my self
cures Comments By: Lucy on 2006-02-26
I have tried to use a spaecial oil on the skin which is recommended to remove them, but last 2 weeks and not much change. But recently bought some loreal anti stretch mark cream which really toned them down has alot in it and does not cost a fortune. My stomach has since got much better. But they are still there, like alot of you i got them after the birth of my first son and have them breasts belly loads thighs and legs. I think laser treatment maybe the only cure.
help Comments By: someone on 2006-04-19

bio oil + sunbed Comments By: HAYAT on 2006-05-24
bio oil is really good you can get it from boots, i got strech marks from pregnancy and i used this for 5 weeks and it makes such a difference get lots of sit ups to tight your stomach and go on sun bed for 3-4 times a week for 3 weeks and you will be greatfull i gave you this info, for best results use 1-2 times a day (bio oil) after a hot bath or shower. and after going on sun beds for 10min only use jhonsons body lotion. YOU WILL LOOK GREAT, TRUST ME

HATE THEM Comments By: BRYAN PUTZ on 2006-06-05
Yeah iam glad iam not the only one who has them because they are annoying.I guess i will use the coco butter treatment and some other topical creams.I hope they also work on pimples because i have that problem too.Its like a grease factory
from my own experence Comments By: angel on 2006-06-09
i got my strech marks when i was 13 or 14. They started out a redish purple also. Ive tried the coco butter it does help but it doesnt make them go away i have tried others methods. My mother got them from having children and they were also redish purple. The best way my mother and i have found to help reduce the apperence is to use lotion and to exercise that will tighten up your skin. It will take time its different for everyone but they will turn white and fad to wear they are not as noticable. Im almost 21 and mine are white and are not as noticable. My mothers are also calming down. I know its probly not what you want to hear. But they will probly be there for the rest of your lives they wont be as noticable as when you first got them. I was told once that things like this just builds character. Everyone has faults but there is always someone that will love us anyway.

I trryed it Comments By: someone special on 2006-07-14
I just tryed the egg white thing and it looks like its starting to work!the dark redish color has faded but the are still there Im gonna try it again for the next few days. I am only 14 and have had them since I hit puberty at like 10. They bother me sometimes but I dont care what other people thinkI show them anyways I dont care Im not over weight and if boys dont like me beacuse I have strech marks o well I know lots of boys that like me for the way I am even if I have strech marks. and I think that is how everyone should think. the only reason people will make fun of you is to hurt your fellings because they know you are self consious about them so if u dont wont them to bring it up again act like you dont care and tell them u like ur strech marks u think they make u look SEXY!!
Me too Comments By: Katrina on 2006-07-18
I got strech marks when I was 16 and gave birth to my first son, I started out weighing 105lbs ended at 204 I have lost all but 20lbs that I'm still working on, I have tried creams, olive oil, tanning bed, self tanning lotion, the tan and cocoa butter or olive oil do seem to help some, but my friend who became pregnant at the same time used regular butter all over for the nine months, like country crock and she never had not one strech mark so maybe that will work for not getting anymore.
DONT GIVE UP Comments By: Anon on 2006-07-18
I also have alot of strech marks in my inner tighs and all over my butt and hips its just getting worse because they are spreading down the side of my legs. I started getting them when i was 15 im 21 now and tried different methods to get rid of them but not working. dont give up keep trying!!!!
I hate THEM Comments By: bren on 2006-07-24
ok i started gaining weight and got stretch marks, i ordered the most expenisive lotions and they still havnt worked(they only prevent them) but i went to walmart and bought palmers cocoa butter formula(tummy butter) its in a round jar, its very greasy but i think its starting to work, i put it on twice a day(after showering) and after it dries it lasts forever it seems...it smells pretty good too. oh and i also get airbrush tans and it really blends them in! so if all else fells go to the tanning salon and ask for a air brush tan(not the mystic, never get in a showerlike thing and let it spray you, your asking for it lol) make sure an actual person does it for you(really worth the 20 bucks, and the tummy butter is only 5! trust me, try it what do u have to lose????and if u have them on ur tummy like i do...get a cute one piece suit, theyre actually kinda cute...

Warning!!! Comments By: ashley on 2006-09-28
I am 15 years old. I have really bad problems with my period. I got on birth control. And then i started hearin about the amazing depo shot. So I got on it. I regret it now. I have been lookin up things that might cure my strechmarks and i went to one site and there are some medicines that can cause strechmarks depo is one. Then i finally realized that i didnt have strechmarks till i got on depo. Now i regret it so bad. Im a virgin and no guy has seen me naked and i just get scared that they will and wont want to be with me. I hate them i have them pretty bad on my inner thighs then some on my outter and one small on on my breast. Im not overweight im not skinny as a pole though but by no means fat. So if your thinkin about getting on depo check it out. Oh and what is this egg white thing will someone tell me and if it works. PLEASE I DONT WANT THEM ANYMORE!!!!!!!!!11

ACV Comments By: CyberAngel on 2006-11-05
Apple Cider Vinegar (apparently) will get rid of stretch marks, and works better than egg white.
creams and acne Comments By: BR on 2006-11-06
I would be careful of what creams you are putting on your face. Sometimes these creams can make oily faces even worse. Dove makes lots of great products though. I know that the new "Cool Moisture Lotion" has Vitamin E in it.i have read that vitamin E helps your skin reproduce new elasticy cells.
Scrubbing Comments By: Lulu:-) on 2006-11-25
I know ow everyone feels. I have had stretch marks from a very early age. Stretch marks are in the DERMIS, the middle layer of the skin. Unfortuately, most creams won;t penetrate past the top layer. HOWEVER.... THERE IS SOMETHING called EMU OIL. This penetrates through all nearly all the skin layers and has healing properties. There is a cream from HOLAND AND BARRATT which sells BLUE EASE CREAM which cointains this (as well as aloe vera and MSM - the later apparently breaks up scar tissue). Also, EXFOLIATING is meant to help because your body thinks that your skin has been damaged therefore goes aroung trying to ake new skin - (go to stretchmarkcure.com for more info - and no I'm not a sales rep I've just started to do the websites technique)

I am a member of femalefirst.co.uk and there is a HUGE forum about stretch marks. If you think I'm an expert on stercth marks wait unti you listen to someof the other members! Google femalefirst stretch marks and you will find it. Hope this helps. Lulu:-)

never ending stech marks Comments By: anon on 2006-12-28
i have had strech marks ever since i can remember, they give me low body confidence and at times low self esteem. my body has always been an unsiteful to look at, and worse of all i have just started recently to get one on my stomach. I have tried cocca butter and that does nothing at all to help. At the moment i'm trying bio-oil and now this egg thing, fingers crossxxx
If nothing else works i guess im off to te docters because my one dream is to walk on the beach and feel sexy again..hopefully theres smething out there for us

Did you try it Comments By: cati importa on 2007-01-05
I am kind of confused becasue I have recently been searching online for ways to remove strech marks, and I found that recent studies have said Vtamin A is good for it and Egg Yolks contain the largest quantity of vitamin A. The egg white does have vitmin A but not as much.

look how many women commented on this Comments By: kayla on 2007-02-24
if so many of us have them there is no reason to be ashamed. i used to have self loathing and a fear to show my body to men. i have them every where the're are even ones on top of ones in some regions but i love my self and take care of myself and once i let that happen and didn't let the marks define me life changed. just look to your attributes. love yourself and others will!! cheesy but true!

Good News About Strectch Marks Comments By: Justin on 2007-03-18
I'm using the new strechmark eraser system. I'm a young black male. I experienced them as a result of a growth spurt. I had about 3 of them at different times. There's thousands of stories about stretch marks and if they are removable or not. For me it was at age 12 I remember seeing them. Now there is so much to prevent them that really works. Exfoliating is really good! Repairing your stretch marks depend on what you eat, exercising, drinking lots of water, and keeping good body moisterizers (daily). Trust me it will work for you. If you apply the right methods to your body...it will respond to them and repair itself. Never give up your hope. If your strecth marks very old...it will take a lil longer. But it will work. Find a method on the net and stick with it. You're worth it! Trust me it will work. (Take Care of your body...it will absolutely repair itself)

removing stretch marks Comments By: Anon on 2007-04-02
Stretch marks can be greatly reduced or removed using acid peels. The most commonly used peels are tca (seek professional advice for this one) or gylcolic acid peels. There are cases of people completely removing them over a period of 6 months to a year. Persistantly applying peels, exfoliating your skin with microdermabrasion cloths and taking vit supplements will over a period of months, either greatly reduce or completely remove marks on most people.

Hope this helps

OH NO!! Comments By: IrishChick on 2007-04-09
I am 13 (almost 14) and i got stretch marks on my breasts at around 10 or 11 and then i got them on my thighs and hips and bum at 13. I got worried and went to the pharmacists. The recommended Bio Oil. I used that but nothing seemed to be happening so I went to the local GP and she said it is part of growing up, some teens get them some dont and I am one of the unlucky ones. I am still using Bio Oil and they are fading. My cousin got them and she used baby oil on them every day and now they are gone so dont give up. Sorry to say the white ones are permanent, only the red ones can be delt with. They happen when the body is growing but the skin is not growing as fast so they stretch and leave a mark. I might try this and see but even after I will use the oil just to be sure. I go into chatrooms to make friends and males there say they have slept with women who have stretch marks and they dont care so other teens worrying about there sex life because of stretch marks dont worry :) Its really good to know that I am not the only one with them! Thanks for the advice and I hope my comment is useful to some! good luck! xxxx

Mr. Man Comments By: Bob Bobbson on 2007-04-30
I'm a guy, and I've had strech marks ever since I grew tall. I guess my skin couldn't keep up with growth.( Doctors Words) They are really noticable. The ones on my stomach are like five inches long, but they are everywhere. Thighs, ribs, arms, calfs, kroch, I've never even been fat! I just wanted to add that it really sucks having stech marks when your a guy much worse than a girl. This is because not many guys have them so I'm like a freak. I'm very hairy so using lotions is a pain. I've also never had a girlfriend that wasn't totally turned off from them. In fact I've lost some promising reltionship due to them, I think they ruined my life. I've tighted them out with exercise but they will never go away, I didn't bother rubbing stuff on them, it just won't make any sence that that would work. I might try a wrap if it didn't make the sound it would make from movement, but wraping the whole area with tight plastic wrap would problaby srink the skin. What do you think about plastic wrap?
I figure it out!! Comments By: Bob Bobson on 2007-04-30
They say if your srech mark are still red they will go away with treatment right? Well, last sumer when I got I little sun burn my marks turned red. After the burn went away the marks where still red for awhile. So get sunburn and then put everything you can think on there! Brilliant!
SOLUTION!!!!!!!!!! Comments By: Rabab on 2007-05-07
Hey don't freak out people our disgrace in fact those have a solution. Almond oil!!!!!!!!!! But for this treatment you have to be patient. You just have to apply it to the affected areas everyday for couple of months and they will disappear with time. Believe me i had a baby a year ago and the stretch marks all over my body were just terrible so i applied the oil and after three months they were gone. And believe me if my marks disappeared all your will definitly disappear too.

Stretch marks are forever Comments By: K on 2007-07-15
I can't believe some of the stuff I'm reading! Some of you girls think your like is ruined because of some stupid stretch marks. I had a baby and my stomach looks like a total road map. Yes they are ugly and yes I hate them but my husband doesn't look at me any differently and he thinks I'm as beautiful as the day we met. I've had marks on my breasts since the day they popped up and they faded and then reappeared when I gained weight. So I don't wear a belly shirt, or anything revealing, is that really so bad? Give me a break, stretch marks are pretty much a fact of life for most of us. I hate to tell you but I'm pretty sure perfect does not exist on earth, and it only exists in movies and magazines with the help of airbrushes and a lot of makeup!!

best advice for stretch marks Comments By: Valerie on 2007-09-26
I got stretch marks after having my baby. Mostly on my stomach and inner thighs. If you are getting stretch marks just simply from small changres in weight you really need to change your diet and include more benefitial omega 3's, and more fruits and vegetables. This will help your body heal and prevent stress to your skin. Once you have them there is little you can do with out tons of money for laser treatments and tummy tucks, but one thing i found is to help the skin retighten. Eat well and try an exfoliating scrub with fine coffee grinds in it. Use it every other day. The stimulation of the skin will help with the redness and the caffeine will help with tightening the skin back up. It takes time for your body to heal it's self so don't expect results overnight. Here is my recipe for a coffee sugar scrub
gently heat 1/4 C castor or olive oil with 1/8 cup coffee grinds. Let warm for 20 minutes. Strain out the coffee grinds with a strainer and save the oil. add the oil to about 1 and 1/2 cup finely granulated sugar like C and H brand. I do not mean powdered sugar. mix it with a fork and store it in a tupperware type container with a lid. Keep it in the shower and use it every other day.

self confidence Comments By: syran on 2007-12-02
I am in the same situation as most people on this site but I know that you can get speacialist advice on this matter ie dr free consontation laser treatment which has high risk factors but does work I think stretch marks r stressfull to a lot of women but its all about building self confidence and likeing your selfs I think its pshycological more then anything and not every man is like that and we all have thing we would like to change men aswell I'm not sure if this egg thing will work but I am intriged but I've heard washing your hair with egg gives it a shine there maybe something in the egg a vitimain maybe but I'm not to sure so put your lipstick on and be proud

ALL SOLUTIONS FOR YOUR STRECH MARKS! Comments By: Alyssa :D on 2008-01-15
Hi. im alyssa. I'm 14 and i have this same problem. And yes, by the way i speak, obviously im more mature than you think. Anyways.
I've been really bored, so, i looked through all of these comments and took the liberty of getting all these remedies and temporary fixations for this problem. yes i have them too. so ill most likely be back on here to tell you how all that works out.
heres the list of things other people have commented on...

1. apply almond oil. (takes a month or so)
2. cocoa butter (2 weeks)
3. leave egg whites on your skin for 15 or 20 minutes ((no idea if this works)) lol

4. just use neutrogena's microdermabrasion kit. works in about 3 weeks.

5. rub vitamin e oil or lotion on skin. (improves elasticity)

6. msm? no idea what it is. go google it. im about to. lol

7. apple cider vinegar? hmm. wonder if that works too. lol

8. exercise and apply lotion. this does work. but you have to keep going at it.

9. bio oil? once again. google it.
10. emu oil? for the third time, google it. lol

11. olive oil...um i usually use this to cook with but okay, whatever. ill try it.
12. get a spray tan (makes them blend with your skin)

well. these are all of the things people have posted.
so good luck ladies. and don't let something like this hold you back. You are woman, and you are always going to be beautiful.

Just get over it. Comments By: Margaux on 2008-02-25
I'm 25 years old, always been skinny, have not given birth whatsoever but I have terrible stretch marks on my ass which is frustrating. I started getting them when I was in my teens, probably because I took Depoprovera pills for my irregular menstruation but I'm not so sure about the cause. I'm Asian/Pacific Islander so I'm naturally tan and my stretchmarks are all white and noticeable. I'm confident with how I look but I still wish I could wear anything I want. Yeah, I still go to the beach and wear two-piece swimsuits but I always opt for the boyshorts-cut bottom. And now that my new boyfriend is coming over to see me, I'm afraid he'll get turned off... But I don't care, really. If he loves me then it won't bother him. Plus I have a great personality to make up for it. Hahaha! So heads up girls, and think of the all positive things in you instead of worrying about those stretchmarks.

men have stretch marks also they usually get theirs from working out or from being overweight, so yea if u dont mind there's they probabaly won't mind yours, my boyfriend doesnt mind!

AH! Comments By: Jenn on 2008-05-01

inside is what matters. Comments By: f on 2008-06-02
i am nearly 20, i have had strech marks since i was 12. it used to really get me down, and it still does, especially when you catch them in awfull light, it makes them look a hundred times worse. i have tried all sorts of creams to try and make them go. . however they are still with me. i dont tend to worry about them as much as i did. i have never had children and i am a u.k size 8-10. so not big, and i still have them. i am pale skinned which helps now they are white. you just have to think that at the end of the day people dont look for things like strechmarks, and if they do they are pathetic. i have a loving boyfirend who helped me get great self esteam. if you have a person in your life that loves you then they obiously dont care about your marks. come on people at least we are not the only ones out there who have them millions of girls do and boys too, and many are from the most natural thing known to man. . bringing a new life into the world. if you are very unconfident look at them and think to yourself, it is just strech marks, i wont let them get me down anymore. come one everyone, lets beat them. strechmarks + high self esteam = more confident women!!!!!!!!

just get used to it!!!! Comments By: shazia on 2008-08-24
Hey!!!! I have stretch marks everywhere and sometimes I think that mine are the worst. I have them on my tummy, arms, legs, boobs, hell i even have them on my knees. Mine are white now meaning there never going anywhere. I been having them for 9 years they got worse when i had a baby. Some people dont have as much elacticity in there skin. Im use to it and i really dont care anymore. Ive learned how to buy clothes and still look sexy. I dont have a issue meeting guys im still very pretty with these strech marks. The only way to get rid of the ones on your stomach is if you have extra loose skin and a gut so you can get a tummy tuck. It lifts the skin and pulls it down and the skin looks damn near new but you have to be ready to come out your pocket 6 racks or more. Just because im use to them and really dont care dont mean i dont want them gone and yes i have my days where i dont want to get naked when i make love but like alot of people have said on this blog if a man really cares or loves you he wont care.

What's wrong with me? Comments By: Troubled Teen on 2008-10-18
UGGHHH!!! I hate my stretchmarks. I have them on my buttocks and above my knees. I have no idea what's wrong with me. I've been reading a lot of articles on stretchmarks and how to reduce them but i have no idea how i got them.

Normally you get it when u suddenly lose/gain weight, not being active, not have a healthy diet, or go through puberty early.

Only the last statement applies to me! I'm a 13 year old female athlete, you name a sport i play it... literally. So I'm very active. I weigh 103 pounds but I'm not super skinny of fat, and I'm 5'6. I haven't gained or lost weight suddenly, i just gain a normal amount of weight since my bones are getting stronger. I eat fruits, vegetables, and everything else. I have a very balanced diet, and I eat like a guy (i eat a lot) but it doesnt effect my weight or body cause like i said, i play basically every sport so it's all my energy and I burn it off.

So everything in the list is marked off except the puberty thing since i hit puberty VERY EARLY. Everything else doesn't make sense. I'm "one of the guys" so i normally swim with them. I feel sorta self concious about myself in the pool thinking omg they can see everything, and keep pulling my bikini bottoms down. I feel so awkward sometimes and my parents say don't worry about it, but i don't know if they'll ever go away. I've been rubbing vitamin E creams but no luck so far.

Get used to them Comments By: Ayla on 2008-11-13
Hi, im Ayla and im 17, ive had stretch marks since i was 14, and ive got really down about them, and i cant wear anything i want to wear, that girls my age shud be wearing i want to feel confident, but i dont. I have them starting from my hips all the way down to my calves, covering the backs of my legs to the sides, and insides completely covered. But my boyfriend doesnt care because they are part of me, and they are part of you too. Yeah you can use bio oil and the sun bed, it just speeds up the fading process, not even laser surgery completely gets rid of them, ive talked to my friends and colleagues at work and EVERY girl i have spoke to has them. Just think one day you will have children, you will get them anyway they are natural. and women that have had children, LOOK WHAT YOU HAVE TO SHOW FOR THEM. who cares anyway as long as your confident just accept that they are part of you, and you should realise that everyone else will accept them too. Your not alone 2 in 3 women have them but to be honest i think everyone has them, whether its just one small one or it covers alot of your body, Just be happy there are people with worse problems in the world!!!
Scratching? Comments By: Kate on 2008-11-18
I'm 14 and at the beginning of this year I had no stretch marks at all. At night I began scratching my inner thighs for a few minutes before falling asleep and now I have horrible deep dark stretch marks all over them. Then at school whenever I got bored in class I would scratch my calves (even though they weren't itchy) and now my calves are completely covered in them. And sometimes when I sit with my knees to my chest I scratch the back of my thighs (once again, not even itchy) and now they're covered. It just really depresses me that if I hadn't have scratched so much, for no reason, that I wouldn't have stretch marks. Now I can never wear shorts or anything. I don't ever want to even go swimming anymore. At school we have to wear a above the knee skirt as part of our uniform and I stress about it 24/7. Honestly, I'm on the computer about every single day researching stretch marks. I know I shouldn't care what other people think, but for some people, it's hard not to care. My stretch marks are all very visible also.

THE FACTS !! READ THiS & LiSiON UP!!!! Comments By: amanda on 2009-01-05
hi! im 16 i have had strech marks for 3 years now.

[COCO BUTTER CREAM] really helps your strech marks. REMEBER! it takes time up to 2 weeks or maybe 2 month it depends on on your skin but it works!!! just rub the cream on the strech marks in the morning and at night and over time they will go away!!
i have a boyfiend and we been dating for almost a year now. HE DONT CARE ABOUT MY STRECH MARKS because he loves me for who i am.....so girls if the guys cant exapt you with your stretch marks and for who u are then THERE NOT WORTH IT!!!

I have a friend who used the Cosmetyn, it really helped hers, they were bad and mine are HORRIBLE. I have stretch marks on my lower back going not only up and down but side to side, have them up to 1 inch wide on my inner thighs and lower stomach and even have them on my private parts after having 4 children. If it works I will come back and post and let you all know. I am going to take before and after pics too. I really hope it does!

hey everybody, i am 20 and have to kids. Yes stretch marks are an awful thing but as a woman or man we all get them. Some not so serious as others but unless your have thousands of dollars (money cause i am australian)to spare, your never gonna get rid of them. They do fad, they do get itchy but learn to forget them because everyone has them!!! If any one has any remarks about them dont listen and dont let it get you down, i live by the beach i swim in a two piece bikini know one has every said anything i live in a town with about 16000 people and most of us live in the water!!!! love your bodys girls cause its the only one your gonna get!!!

SCRUB EM! Comments By: asmith22 on 2009-12-09
The only thing I have found that works is scrubbing them every day in the shower. They will look worse at first but they will go away!
It works!!x Comments By: Taytertotsxx on 2010-01-04
I was like 13 when i got these HUGE strech marks on my legs and butt:( I have really pale skin so they were really noticable! I was really worried because im a competitive Swimmer and Gymnast I wore shorts While training for gymnastics and used waterproof foundation on my legs while training and competing!I went on some sites to figure out what remedys i could use!I found some pretty weird ones but these are the ones that worked for me:Avon strech mark removel cream, Egg whites, Cocoa Butter,Plenty of hydration and Exercise and taking a shower twice a day!(the reason for the showering is that is strechs your skin out) Thankfully my strech marks are nearly gone!!x
There is a solution Comments By: shakia wright on 2010-01-18
There is a way to get rid of your stretch marks, even if they've gotten really light and you've had them for years. I was 13 years old when I started recognizing my stretch marks, and let me tell you, they were pitiful. I always wore a jacket to school, even on hot days. No matter what, I always had on a jacket, but not anymore.
I was told that cocoa butter does lighten up your stretch marks, so I used that for a while and didn't notice anything. Then, my mama told me about the cocoa butter stick in a tube. It's like some dry cocoa butter made in stick form, but it gets all moist when you rub it on your skin. You can buy it from anywhere. I know Wal-Mart has it for sure.
I used the cocoa butter stick for about three months, and I noticed how my stretch marks started to lighten, and now, they've started to disappear. I'm 19 now, and I don't even have to wear a jacket at all. Even when it's cold out, I still don't rock a jacket anymore. So, for everyone who says that stretch marks are forever, they're lying. There's a solution to every problem.

My personal story and Try This!! Comments By: Tiffany on 2010-05-25
I had stretch marks since I was 12, it was so horribe. I have stretch marks on the back of my legs, on the insides of my thighs, on the side of my stomach and on my arms. I hated talking to boys because I thought I was ugly, and I knew that thay thought I was ugly! In gym class this guy actually came up to me and asked me what was on the back of my legs, and included that it was gross!!! I am now 17 and still living with the stretch marks. (im 130 lbs)

Try Ambi. It fades the WHITE stretch marks till they are barely visible. This helped me a lot.

Even though sometimes I feel insecure about my stretch marks, I think to myself, "I am beautiful, and nobody is going to tell me that I am not. If a guy likes me he will like me for me." So think about that!!

depo injection Comments By: Jessica Louise on 2010-07-08
i was on the depo injection, and ever since i come of it i had theses strech marks apear over night all down my legs,on my boobs, on my hios everywhere, i cant wear shorts or skirts i have put on some weight but i dont eat loads and my whole body is covered in strech marks, i cant go swimming i have tried this oil stuff for them but nothing seems to work for it im going to try the egg stuff, but i hate them so much, im so imbarrased of my body its unreal, so just dont get the depo injection to stop you getting pregnant, i cant wear nothing nice, always jeans and tops that cover my chest.
depression Comments By: ashley on 2010-08-16
I am seventeen years old and have been insecure of myself for as long as i could remember. When i was sixteen i had a drug problem and my parents sent me to rehab. After rehab, i realized how bad i hurt my family. Thats when the depression started. Just a week after i got out of rehab my best friend Charlie passed away. It hurt me so bad that i never saw my friends and all i did was eat and sleep. i gained 50 pounds in just 7 months. Since i gained weight so fast, i started to get strech marks on my weist, behind my calfs, and on my upper thigh. i still eat way to much and my strech marks have gotten so out of hand that i dont know what to do anymore. it interfears with my life and my ability to associate with men. I feel ugly 99.9% of the time and that i will never find that one guy. all because i am insecure about my strech marks. i use cocoa butter lotion and i love the way it smells and my skin seems so much softer. but it seems not to do anything. i researched and found out that strech marks will always be in your life no matter what. you just have to live with it. but vit. E oil and lotions is the best way to softin your strech marks. once they are scared up go tanning it will help blend in. if you have any better idea to get rid of strech marks please email me.
