I have had stretch marks on my breasts and stomach since I have lost weight. When I ask some people how to get rid of them, they say use shea butter or cocoa butter. But I have been using them for months and they are not helping. Any advice or suggestions?
Stretch marks do fade quite a bit over time (although it does take a long time), but they'll likely never disappear completely. Moisturising does help minimize the appearance of stretch marks, but other than that there's really nothing you can do about them except learn to accept them.
