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!
