Recommendation for Cream during weight loss to avoid stretch marks, etc



Recommended Posts

Hi. Can anyone recommend a good cream to avoid stretch marks and saggy skin during weight loss? Also, when can it be started; how many weeks post-op?

Unfortunately, if you have been obese for a while and depending on how much extra weight you're carrying and age, no creams will help with some skin and stretch marks. The less severe areas can be faded or 'tightened' up, but some will never go back unless you have surgical intervention.

I mean you could use a gradual tanner. It won't get rid of or prevent stretch marks, but it'll be a helluva lot harder to see them.

Hi why does weightloss cause stretch marks? My tummy has more and they are becoming itchy. Almost down 60lbs in 4 months

From the research I’ve done, the weight gain creates the stretch marks but losing weight causes them to be visible. The more I lose, the more I “get”. I have them from inner thigh almost to my knees.

Thanks for answering. They for sure are more visible. I wish there was something I can do to get rid of them. I'm worried about one dot of stretch marks that really itches it's strange

When mine first appear they can get itchy. I don’t know why but I do think it’s pretty normal. I think there’s laser therapy for stretch marks but I don’t even know how effective it is.

I used a skin forming lotion from nivea a ton after surgery. Not sure if it helped but my skin does look pretty great!!

I use Jergens firming lotion for the loose skin ( I don’t really have any yet but I’m being proactive) and I use Bio Oil for the stretch marks and it has worked wonders. Cheaper than mederma and in my option works better and faster

      Having another blah food day today.  My lunch has been sitting here with me for almost two hours and all I've managed to eat was maybe 1/2 oz of grilled chicken and 2 cucumber slices.  Eff it, I'm done.

      This video is an excerpt from the same, larger video. In this video, I pull out only the Food Addiction portion. Its such an important revelation for me and it may help someone else, thus I think it warrants its own video. 🙂
