I have stretch marks across my hips. Most of you seem to be dismayed by them, but I have always found them beautiful I don't remember them ever being red. They shine, almost metallic. They remind me of silvery spiderwebs, in dewy mornings. They are a part of me that speaks about my growth as a woman, and I would never dismiss them so lightly.


Just wanted to offer another point of view.

Hmmm... wish i shared the same attitude as you enrichi!
Do red ones fade slowly cos mine seem to just stay there, sometimes they look redder and sometimes they look they are fading...

I was cursed with many stretch marks while I was going through puberty. I began to fill out and because I was only 11 years old, I didn't even think about treating them because I really didn't know what they were. Now that I have slimmed down, I am stuck with faded stretch marks all over my thighs, breast and sides and I want them gone! Is there anything that I can do now to fade them even more? Please help because I dread wearing a bathing suit or having to look at them eveytime I get undressed.

Well I'm pregnant and expanding rapidly..sofar I haven't run into any stretchmarks..but it's still early in the running..so who knows.

Anyways, every morning after shower and every night right before bedtime I rub my tummy and boobs with a selfmade mix of Almond-oil (contains Vitamin E) blended with Vitamin E oil and Mandarin oil.

I'll let you all know if it does the trick in about 5 months time

Strivectin is a popular one..but expensive.

Can't get rid of existing stretchmarks...they only fade...never go away. But you can try and prevent future ones by using products already suggested.
