Hey guys I am also 14 and I have had stretch marks since 14, after I quit swimming. I realized that after I quit I started to gain a ton of wait, around like 10 pounds, and after awhile I started to get stretch marks, at first they were just on my right leg a bit, but have spread to my left leg, butt, hips and even my chest :O. When I was doing some research one day, I found an amazing home remedy, but you have to stay committed to it!! Even though it takes awhile, when I first started it, I was doing it probably every two days, and I saw improvement, but after awhile I was just doing it when I felt like it, and then they started getting worse again. But here is what I tried, it works amazing if you commit to it, try and do it everyday, but if you cant try it as much as possible.
FIRST STEP (Very important) EXFOLIATE!
Exfoliate around the area/s in cirles and after 10mins or so, start exfoliating the area in the direction towards the heart. (e.g. From your stomach you stroke the exfoliating brush upwards. From the Arms, across ways.)

STEP TWO
Okay this may sound funny but the Vicks Vaporub REALLY WORKS! Ok, now don’t leave just yet. I think I know why this may be. It has something to do with the ingredients, Eucylyptus and the menthol. And I think there may also be a small amount of Emu oil in there also.

I know a constant strong smell of the stuff isn’t pleasant but grab a dollup of the stuff and rub it in circles but mostly in the opposite direction the stretch marks are. (On my stomach, they’re vertical so I rub it horizontally). You don’t need to go fast or hard but go firmly making sure you concentrate on one spot! Do this for 15-30 min. Does seem long but you won’t notice if you do this while watching something, and resting your arms during commercial breaks. Lol.

STEP THREE
Here comes the Olive Oil. I measure about the size of the lid and rub it on all my stretch mark areas And yes, on top of the Vicks Vaporub. Rub it in till the skin loses the oil shine. That’s how you know it’s being absorbed. Don’t go overboard on this part, cos you will be repeating this step.

STEP FOUR
The Gooey Part. Lol. Crack an egg. Throw the yolk and keep the white. Apply on the area you’ve just treated. No need to massage in really, but apply with circular movement. Wait for the yolk to dry. Sit on a towel perhaps if you’re worried about the runnyness. But really, it’s not that bad if you’ve applied it in the circular motions like I said. May take another 5 min to dry depending on the area size.

STEP FIVE
COLD SHOWER! AHHHH! Yes ladies, a cold shower. This is where you wash off all the Vicks, Oil and the Goo! Lol. Use a strong, almost rough loofah (A coarse, fibrous cylindrical object used like a bath sponge for washing.) on the spots. It’s like another mild exfoliation. But also to make sure you’ve gotten rid of the gooyness ;). After that you can put the water on a bit warmer and use your bodywash and whatever you usually do.

STEP SIX
Mosturise. With a stronger moisturiser. Something that will keep your skin very hydrated. The natural and very GREAT product to use is… YOU GUESSED IT! OLIVE OIL! But also if you do not want to use that again, you can use any type of moisturizing cream, try and stay more natural, the stuff I like to use is Vaseline intensive rescue extra strength, unfragranced .

And don’t forget to drink you eight glasses of water a day or as much as you can. This will help keep skin hydrated and in the long run, will prevent wrinkles setting on faster.

Give it a try guys. Does take time but is worth it. Well, I have tried this routine and I have seen great results!!! No joke! I can feel that the skin has smoothed out much more than the left. Still a bit bumpy but I’m sure in time will smooth out for good! With all the exfoliation!
If I had pictures I would prove it!
I am positive it will work if you do practise this every night and make it a ritual. It worked for me! Give it a go and tell me how you’ve gone. What’s your story. =)

and if you want to use a product, even though this is a natural site, try TriLASTIN-SR Intensive Stretch Mark Complex, it was on the tyra show, I have not tried it yet but people who have; have had 100% results. Hope this will help and sorry about the super long comment. LOL! I posted this twice, once on someone elses comment and once on here haha ;)

Hi! wow that is amazing! it works so well! i can't say that i enjoyed the cold shower, but the affect was astonishing! (by the way, i cant spell)
the vics stuff worked a treat! i have always had some lying around, so it made it much more easy! I have had streach marks on my brests for a long time, but never done anything about it, you see i had a number of serious groth spurts when i was 11, and i started out with aa cup, then, still at 11, i had b cup. THANK YOU SO MUCH!!!!!!!!

Hi, im 17 and i have really bad dark stretch marks, and i could never wear a 2 piece when my friends did and i really hope this works. But i had 1 question whats an exfoliate ? And what kind do i purchase

Whitney

Exfoliate means taking the dead skin cells off the first layer of your skin. You can use sugar to exfoliate in the shower. Rub it in clockwise motion ( circler motion) for about fifteen minutes. What's really great is if you get some kind of vitamin lotion and then add vitamin c powder. You can chop up vit c tablets and put it in the lotion good luck
