    Stretch Marks


    Mine are dark purple like grapes. Look terrible. Anyone have any advice as to how to get rid of them, or hide them. Mine are on my Pecs and Biceps.

    You can't really get rid of them - unless you used laser treatment or something. However, you CAN fade them and make them less noticeable. Flawless does a pretty good job at this - Use Java Lather in the shower, and then apply Flawless over the top after drying (you can apply Eviscerate pre-Flawless as well - optional, but makes a difference). Otherwise, yeah, a tan, different body butters, etc. can help.

    I used to have some dark azz ones on my bis and side pec. They are now fading, why? my arms aren't grown like they used to so if they aren't dark your skin isn't expanding/muscles are not grown

    Look at it like that, so you should be golden

    I have them all over my stomach cause I finally stopped overeating and lost a few lb.

    It looks awful! Will using Flawless make them go away? Is there a vitamin that could help with that?

    Flawless can help. Vitamin E cream. Shea butter. There's several products out there.

    Stretchmarks are caused from fast weight loss, excessive weights loss, or even daily increases and decreases in weight (from food or water) over a week, and lack of elasticity in the skin (i.e. not enough collagen).

    Best treatment is prevention and making sure your skin is softened and moisturized prior to the growth... However, that doesn't answer your question Rosie's suggestion is one i'd recommend too.

    You can't always prevent them, though, regardless of how moistorized or soft you keep your skin. I know, for me personally, even slight changes in weight, even if just from daily changes day-to-day from food and water intake, cause stretchmarks on my legs. I can gain weight drastically everywhere else and rarely get them (i get them from gains in muscle in arms, etc., but they are minor), but even a few pounds gained and lost over a day or a week, and I have fresh marks - which is why Flawless has been a blessing to me (and having an almost perpetual tan helps, too).

    I wasn't able to prevent them either but once I started using multiple methods, i was able to prevent the more nasty looking ones. I have major stretch marks from my chest to bicep region that look like canyons and makes my skin paper thin and prone to bleeding when aggrivated.

    Java Lather is a moistorizing exfoliator - soap or liquid. Eviscerate is a systemic topical fat burner. Read up on them at NutraPlanet, as well as check out the RPN subforum and reviews for feedback on the products - it's not hard to find information if you actually bother to LOOK.

    Bio-oil has been getting some good reviews. Walgreens, CVS and others carries it.

    If you are interested in it, here is a 2 dollar coupon from their website.
