OK....this is a little personal....but....does anyone know a good remedy for stretch marks on the boobs and bum? I used to have more meat here, but now it's gone I have these nasty stretch marks - and they're now the whitest partsof my body after being on a camping trip on the beach!! However, no one gets to see these as I'm newly single single single! :embarrassed:

I got my stretch marks when I was at school, so now they've faded (luckily my skin is deathly white). Got them from the knee all the way up to the bottom of my back, but luckily not on my upper body.

You can get creams in Superdrug etc which pregnant women use to prevent stretch marks - try using that preventatively, but I'm not sure what you can do about them once you've got them. Might be something out there to reduce the redness? Might be worth asking at the pharmacy counter at Boots etc - they're usually pretty clued up!

No woman should be ashamed of stretch marks. They're a part of childbirth and should be cherished as much as the photo album !!.

That said, I'm a fella who's never had to contend with passing a bowling bowl or running with two handfulls of myself stuffed up my jumper.

My wife was scared from a cycle accident as a child and she hides her heavy scars with Bio Oil too. It's about as good as it get short of surgery as far as I know.

Good luck.

I've got stretch marks at the tops of my thighs, and I've not given birth :p

I've also heard Bio Oil is supposed to be VERY good, never used it though!

I havn't got any stretch marks ..... despite having 2 children! I just smothered myself in cocoa butter for the whole nine months ... seems to have worked! :p My daughter had her appendix out when she was 9 and is using Bio Oil to reduce the scarring and it really does appear to be working ... I'd certainly recommend giving it a go.
