Stretch mark?

Anonymous

Its been a year now after my pregnancy. But the the stretch marks are there.. Stretch mark on my stomach and thighs. That kind of bothers me.. 😔.. I feel like I won't be able to wear shorts anymore.. Looking for suggestions ideas on how to get it light or remove? Anything that worked for you? Homemade over the counter creams? Let me know ladies.. Thanks in advance.

    I am right there with you and I don’t like them and feel comfortable. Then I remind myself that something beautiful came from it and if I had to do it all over again I would. I know that this isn’t what you wanted to hear. Wish I could be more helpful

    We call them our tiger stripes that we earned by becoming moms. 😆

    Well to help prevent them during my first pregnancy I would rub vitamin E oil on my belly every night. I’m not sure if it will help remove them, but I know it’s really good for your skin

    So I use Palmers stretch mark lotion it has vitamin E in it, and collagen to help rebuild elasticity in the skin. I got huge with my first child and am 2. Months pregnant with our second child. I rubbed it on my tummy, breasts, butt, thighs, hips, arms and wherever else I wanted, 2 times a day all through my pregnancy and up to 6 months after, especially as I was losing the baby weight- which was mainly in my stomach, I guess I didn’t look too pregnant anywhere else- but still, I had a few on my tummy and as I lost the weight it helped heal them. Now it doesn’t even look like I had a baby- except for the cutest Bi product ever - my son! And well, I’m pregnant again so...!!! Anyway, I might give that a try. It really really helped me, and I SWEAR by it! I also use aloe jel too, that helped while I was pregnant!!

    Yeah, I made two babies from scratch and it looks like they clawed their way out. 😆 I’d love some tips as well. For me, I know they’ll always be there, but a couple things I’ve noticed are they’re not as noticeable if I stay in shape (easier said than done) and if I stay out of the sun.
