hey I have noticed that many girls have stretch marks, not a lot just maybe a few on their thighs. well I have a lot, and they are on my stomach and breasts they aren't extremely dark, but I dont want them there. I heard that if you put lotion,preferably cocoa butter lotion on your stretch marks they will go away. Is that true? if not what can help? Im sorry if this is in the wrong place! thanks!

I have heard that also....but i think it will make them lighter but not totally go away....if im wrong someone please correct me. I have also heard vitiman E works....some lotions and coco butters have that an also i think u can get just a container of vitiman E but i might have to go to a place like ulta or somthing....if u have ever heard of that store...i dont think there is one in ohio but u can go to ulta.com

hope i helped....

You can buy bottles of vitamin e oil or vitamin e lotion in drugstores, or you could pop open a capsule and use that. Cocoa butter's equally easy to get, and usually comes in little sticks (like these, though they're often sort of tucked away).

And lilac's right. Stretch marks don't just go away, but they do face over time, becoming a very pale, almost unnoticeable silvery colour.
