Reducing the appearance of stretch marks

Reducing the appearance of stretch marks



Over the past few months, I have noticed an increase in the number of stretch marks on my lower back and outer thigh. Some of the lines are purple, while others are red and I am so conscious of them that whenever I go to the beach I wear pants over my bikini. I wish there was some way to get rid of them instantly. What products or methods do you recommend? I don’t like looking like a zebra.{{more}}


Dear Shanna,

I completely understand how you feel about your stretch marks. They can really put a damper on your self-confidence. Unfortunately, I don’t know any product or method which works instantly on stretch marks, but luckily for you, I can recommend Bio-Oil. Twice daily for about three months, apply the oil to your problem areas and massage it in a circular motion. The oil should gradually reduce the appearance of your stretch marks.
