....plain and simple.
How do you get ride of them? And dark marks too...
You rarely do, I have stretch marks on my back from getting a growingspurt when I was young, still have them, won't go away.
Stretch marks you will have to learn to live with them, unless they are really severe you could opt for surgery. Dark spots? Go see a dermatologist!
Green Peels are actually very good and minimising the size and colour of the stretch marks and also blending them in more to the skin, though it is one of the more expensive skin peels it has been known to have a drastic affect on stretch marks and indeed other facial scarring or discolouration.
Sure they're not from that time u were pregnant, man? :biggrin1:
(teheh - sorry dude)
Of course not, they are on my back, never saw a baby growing on the back and in a (real) man
Cocoa butter works pretty good. Just remember, they do not tan so the tanner you are the more they stand out. And yeah go see someone about the dark spots.
I have stretch marks on my stomach too. That is where they are the most pronounced. Other parts of my body have them too but they are less noticeable because they are smaller or lighter colored.
ehhh, local body builder christopher host delt with his through tanning, but he used that mederma tanning lotion in the booth and the regular stuff after showers, worked great on him.
captiva and trilastin are the 2 top recomended lotions ATM.... and speaking of ATM youll need to make a trip to one cause they will cost you an arm and a leg, My godsister bought some off ebay for stretch marks on her hipps from her baby, and even on ebay she paid 70 dollars for a 6 oz tube, it did work REALLY well, you have to basically grab her skin to see em.
if they are still red, then its easier to work with, they are still a fresh scar so coco butter, LOTS of water every day and some moderate tanning and you will make them 80-90% better
To the OP,
welcome to our world!!!!!
BirdinMo...well I have some from childbirth and actually I find a tan really helps cover em up!! But dunno if thats because I'm pale!!
As for cream and stuff, any really good moisturiser and keep rubbin it in I think, Palmers...cocoa butter, olive oil cream possibly....not sure if bio-oil stuff helps cos thats scar stuff!! Mite be worth a go if u want to diminish em...
it dose, all a stretch mark is is a scar made slowly as the skin expands with out proper water and elastogin (sp?)
I have some on my inner thighs from when I used to swim competitively from about 10-15 yo.
My muscles, especially my legs and back, were growing so fast that my skin couldn't keep up. :tongue:
it's so annoying i have them in my butt cheeks. and i don't think i grew a lot. my ass is still flat. ish. i think i'd be ok with it if i do have a bubble butt, but nooooo.
i tried cocoa butter but i didn't see any improvement.
red stretch marks are more ammenable to laser therapy I hear. Once the red has faded though lasers don't work well.
something to do with reorganising the collagen and elastin that has been put down. The stretch marks are more noticeable because the connective tissues are organised differently and make the skin shiny.
Bio-Oil is reported to be an excellent product for stretch marks along with many other skin related problems.
Bio Oil - stretch marks and uneven skin tone - 200ml from £15.49
You will find all the information you need on their website. The product can be bought in most high street phamacists etc
Hope this help.
"read somewhere that a product called BIO OIL works wonders for stretch marks. have not tried it myself though. I have them on my biceps...."
opps should have read the previous comment before posting lol...
I got rid of my friend's by doing a skin brushing with aloe vera, vitamin E oil, and Apricot Scrub...Hers are gone so are mine I got them in the weirdest place ever. The newer they are they are easy to get rid of with the skin brush method. The older they are it's easy and then they fade back to regular skin.
Then it depends on what you eat. It doesnt matter skinny or fat if you don't have enough minerals and vitamins in your diet your skin will mess up. Just some helpful stuff.
