Stretch Marks and Weight Loss

I have had stretch marks for at least 10 years. I had them before I got pregnant, and added some more during two pregnancies. I have lost a significant amount of weight so far. But, I'm still far away from my goal weight. Do the stretch marks ever go away? Do they fade? Does anyone have experience with this?

Sorry - they are with you for the rest of your life. Believe I speak from experience (I have them on my thighs, butt, hips - even back of my calves)

try bio-oil. it's not that expensive - about 10 euros a bottle in europe which works out around 13 dollars. all my girlfriends swear by it.

Also, I have found that tanning - either the old fashioned unsafe way or with self tanner - can make the appearance of stretch marks, at least the white ones, much less noticable.

Palmers Coa Coa butter formula that is specially formulated to help with stretch marks seems to work a little also tanning is true. Tanning helps hide them tremendously I had strech marks on my stomache and I've been tanning since January, now all you can see is the more darker spots of them but it just looks like a darker splotchy area of tanned skin more than a stretch mark

good luck!
