stretch marks

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
First of all great section!!!
I am plagued by stretch marks. Both me and my twin sister have them on our hips back and shoulders and boobs. i am resigned to the fact that they are here to stay but my weight fluctuates so much and a go thru periods of eating then dieting not to mention tremendous fluid retention, which is getting less now i'm cutting back on carbs at night.
anyways, what do u guys use to make your skin less fragile and more toned? My tummy's starting to get less elastic and getting older's not helping.
i currently use cocoa butter and an aromatherapy oil for fluid retention which smells lovely

i'm using palmer's cocoa butter as an everyday moisturizer as well as for strech marks. it hasn't gotten rid of it completely, but it definately has lightened them. plus i just looooove how soft and sweet smelling my skin is all day!

you should try mederma. they really help remove scars. I had chicken pox scars on my stomach and they're all gone!! And it helps to turn your stretch mark into a silverfish color instead or red. the stretch mark itself will never go away, the skin is torn. but mederma can seriously help it make less noticeable.
Bu there is one catch to mederma....you need to be very patient. I waited about a year or so until i fully saw my results. it was a long wait, but im very happy.

Stri Vectin is actually the American version of Nuvection by Dermaglow, and I highly recommend it. It's more for deep wrinkles. It's expensive though and runs about $120 a bottle here in Canada. Here's a link to the Canadian one:

Dermaglow NuVectin Advanced Wrinkle Therapy: VitalScience Corp. :: Dermaglow Skin Care :: Cellu-System :: Beauty Through Wellness

If you have any questions let me know, I used to sell it as a cosmetician!

It's better for both new/old scars as supposed to stretch marks, but if you want something for stretch marks, the Dermaglow line does have a an amazing stretch mark cream.

I will have to look at Dermaglow. I didn't think there was anything that really worked on stretch marks

An aquaintance has had great success with Strivectin SD, too. I think Costco online has it for $93

Definitely do so hun. I sold the line on a daily basis, and is something I always recommended to my customers. Got so much good feedback from the reg. customers. It launched about 1 year ago, and is all natural ingredients.

I hate stretch marks. Seriously...They suck. I had 36C boobs when I was 12, so I got 'em on my boobs VERY early (got them on my hips and inner thighs too)! The good news is......They definitely fade over time. Just be patient. And, tanning really does help them fade. I know I know, tanning isn't great for you....But it really does fade stretch marks AND it helps with acne as well. I never put anything on my stretch marks......But then again, I was only 12 so didn't really know about that stuff then. BOO for going through puberty so early!!!

i got stretch marks under my armpits from my chest growing too fast. I used Palmers Cocoa Butter every day for 3 months and it completely got rid of them. Like they are kinda still there but they are the same color as my skin so u cant see them.

Yup. Same here.

Pure vitamin E oil is the best. Its not that cheap, but its not as expensive as many of the other lotions ect.
