Hello, I'm 21 and I have had stretch marks that are lighter than my body since I was 15. I had my first baby last year so I got a few on my belly as well. I found a remedy that actually works for me and hopefully it will help someone else! You can do this how often you like, but I have a full-time job so I only have time to do it before I go to bed. First, I take a couple of cotton balls, soak them with 100% lemon juice, and cover my stretch marks with them. I flipped out the first time I did it because it looked like my stretch marks got lighter, but in reality, you can't change the color of your stretch marks(that's why tanning and covering them with makeup don't work). The lemon juice lightens the skin around the marks to give you more of an even skin tone. Once the juice dries, I cover them with aloe vera gel(I use a generic brand called 'great value' cuz I'm cheap like that, and it works just fine). When the gel dries, I put on my jammies and go to bed. In the morning I wash it off, and then I repeat the next night. After a week, mine are almost invisible...and I've had these babies for years. So hopefully this will help someone into a bikini this summer ;) Let me know if it works!

for those who are wondering about red stretch marks.. that's how it starts off at first then it will eventually change into the light white stretch marks. you would get the best results if you started doing something about it at the stage where it is red.

Thank you for sharing your success. I began this remedy and I don't see a change yet..... It's been 4 days now but my stretch mark are very deep (lighter than my skin color). They cover my abdomen which is a road map---with every street and side street, breast, and thighs. So I know it will take mine longer to see any results. Lemon juice is a lightener, and very acidic but I added raw shea butter to mine and vitamin E. I apply it twice daily. After I shower in the AM and after my shower before I go to bed. I have had these marks for 24 years now and I'm willing to try this remedy even if it takes a while to see results. All three of my kids were over 9lbs. So I thank you again for sharing.

This remedy may be a good one but I advise you ladies to be careful with the lemon juice...... I must have sensitive skin because it burned my skin. I just used the lemon juice,vitamin E, and aloe that I got out of my yard. I did not get any results. The stretch mark look them did not lighten for me. I used it for about 2 wks.
