Stretch marks are your skin tearing on the inside. Nothing you put on the OUTSIDE will heal torn skin on the inside.

A good moisturizing lotion will help the itching.

Tanning helps fade them.

Nothin will make them go away.

Nothing gets rid of them, your skin is basically scaring. Just use cocobutter lotion/oil, that could help minimize them.

I used Palmers Coco tummy butter through out my first pregnancy and didn't get any stretch marks. I am currently 33 weeks with our second and using tummy butter again and haven't gotten any... yet! I don't know if it's helping any but I still do it. I know you can't really prevent them if your going to get them there is nothing you can do to prevent them. I think maintaining a healthy weight gain and staying hydrated could help though!

nothing will make them completely invisible, but you can 'try' and minimize them.

i've used: cocoa butter, tea tree oil (works the best imo) and vitamin e oil. there are many oils you can use.
