The dreaded stretch marks



Recommended Posts

Or as i call them

Lightning tattoos😉

Has anyone tried derma rolling for stretch marks?

Or are there any good creams?

Mine have faded from the purple to the 1 shade lighter than my skin tone, but now that im finally getting comfortable to flaunt some shorts or a swim suit, i myself a bit self concious about them😔

Mine are absolutely terrible! Haven’t found anything that helps. I can’t even look at my stomach.

The old remedy was cocoa butter, Vitamin E or I guess in the US we have Bio-Oil , a lot of people praise it. Check and see if,your chemists in. Oz might have something similar.

Thanks! We do have bio oil in Australia. I have to admit that I’m good at buying it and forgetting to use it. These marks have just been there for years!!

Did you try derma rolling? Would love to hear your thoughts about it. Having stretchmarks myself and would love to have another strategy other than "ignore them".

I just put regular lotion (Jergens) on mine and they’re super faded now that I’m pretty far out from surgery and close to goal. I think any sort of moisturizer will help keep the skin nice and healthy 😊

I use bio oil and it works great on scarring and fading (I'd assume stretch marks would be the same). Worth a shot, and its very very cheap!
