Well, I've tried basically every kind of cream and stuff out there for scars, and I've found that pure vitamin E oil works the best. I have a lot of scars.

I was wondering if anyone knew of a good shampoo that I could use. I have a lot of chlorine in my hair because I swim twice a day, and my hair is so dry. Thanks!

Hey all. I kind of went through a slight depression recently, and turned to food as my ally. Damn it! Hah. Anyway, my thights sort of "expanded", not to an abnormal width, but more so than the tiny chicken stick legs they were before. And with this growth comes stretch marks. And I mean, they are SO damn visible. For the rest of my life I will be scarred and embarassed. I wouldn't even go to the HUGE pool party I was invited to because of them. I won't wear skirts at all, only jeans. And lets face it, I feel fat and ugly. And I don't have the best looking features to begin with.  :Smiley I know you can't help with the self esteem issues, but I need a fantastic product for stretch marks that isn't going to make me go completley broke.

Well, I have a lot of stretch marks too.
So I looked this stuff up.


"Some people find that sunless tanning treatments (both over-the-counter lotions and sprays and in-salon types of treatments) can help cover up stretch marks. This doesn't work for regular tanning or tanning beds, though, because stretch marks themselves are less likely to tan. And as everyone knows, the sun and tanning beds do more harm than good when it comes to the long-term health of your skin. You also can buy body makeup matched to the tone of your skin that can make stretch marks all but invisible. Although some manufacturers make these cover-up products water-resistant, makeup may not be the best solution if you'll be spending a lot of time in the water."

"Although there are tons of creams and other skin products on the market that claim to eliminate stretch marks, the truth is that most are ineffective and often costly. You can't make stretch marks go away entirely without the help of a dermatologist (a doctor who specializes in treating skin problems) or plastic surgeon. These doctors may use one of many types of treatments - from actual surgery to techniques such as microdermabrasion and laser treatment - that reduce the appearance of stretch marks. These techniques are expensive and are not usually recommended for people in their teen years because they are not finished growing and their stretch marks will probably diminish over time anyway."

Hey Fantasy, I too have stretch marks but on my hips and I used to hate them a lot before. But now I really don't even care about them because I notice EVERYONE has some sort of stretch marks, whether it be working out or growing up. So i guess you can try and hide it but I figure there's not point hiding something that most people have anyway.

Palmers cocoa butter stretch mark cream is amazing. Bascially anythng with cocoa butter, or vitamin E. Vitamin E works for the same reason it works on scars. Stretch marks are formed by tiny tears in the skin, when it expands too fast. Vitamin E oil will help them to heal, and cocoa butter will help heal, and also smooth the skin. But yeah, it's true what Melly721 has said, most people have stretch marks in some form, as most people (even really thin people) get them when  their bodies forrm into that of a womans' shape, rather than a girl's. So try not to worry too much about them.
As for the depression, everything ok now? It's important not to let eating take over as your source of feeling better, you need to find a more productive outlet!! It's probably none of my business though, sorry!!
Take care

When I was a teen I too had embarrassing stretch marks on my hips and thighs ... I too hated wearing swimsuits.  Yet, once I 'grew' into my 'more womanly' shape they went away. I did nothing for them and they dissapeared,  Now, I;m dealing with the left iver stretch marks from pregnancy and I'm using the cocoa butter stuff - I sure hope it helps!

Heya Amber. IT might help. I only ever used it on fresh scars, and it worked absolute wonders, seriously. It's worth a try anyway, I imagine it will probably help a little bit, but probably not as well as it did for my fresh ones Cheesy Good luck!
you can also try creams that are made for scars like maderma ((Sp)) i am not sure how well it will work on an old scar but, it may be worth the shot. my scars usually go away on their own unless they are really deep, at that point i don't think there is much you can do beyond craziness, like plastic surgery...don't go there, please

Thank you so much.  I have been using both on the scars just switching back and forth. I haven't noticed a change yet but I am sure I will

I know aloe vera takes some of the pain away. I dont really know if it makes it go away faster, but it doesnt hurt as bad! I hope you find something that works!
