Men and women can get stretch marks on several areas of their bodies, including the abdomen, thighs, hips, breasts and upper arms. I have them too. I have been using creams and lotions although none of them are effective. What are the treatment options for stretch marks?
Stretch marks are our bodies way to accommodate a growing baby. They are marks of love.
Here is a great thread that talks about stretch marks and remedies to help reduce the appearance.
I highly suggest adequate amounts of water daily. 2-3 Liters of water a day.
Organic coconut oil and vitamin e work great at reducing the appearance of stretch marks.
I also found that organic almond oil and vitamin e mixed together helped me the most.
Apply daily, especially after a shower or bathing.
Hi, I think stretch marks are normal during pregnancy andfor what I know , it simply disappear after a few months.
Yes I agree Rio Denise - stretch marks are normal and a natural part of bringing a baby into the world. For most women they will fade and disappear in the 12 months following birth.
