I have stretch marks and I have had them for about 2 years (or since I was 12) when puberty hit me HARD! I also gained weight from an unbalanced diet and now I am trying to get in shape and I have been somewhat successful! But the stretch marks get worse! So recently (this moning) I started up my old remedies again. To anyone with this problem I would suggest a strict regime. First, get a body scrub and a loofah an scrub a lot till your stretch mark area is pink. Then, rinse that off and put a thick lotion on (my favorite is Ceraphil or Eucerin). Finally put on your clothes. Another thing I suggest that I plan to start up soon is getting a 100% Shea butter stick and putting it on those stretch marks then massaging it in. That worked wonders for me last year. My best advice though is dont worry about it! No one really cares (or notices) but you so do all in your power that you can but be confident! Go swim!
