help me,strech marks everywhere:
Probably you gained a lot of weight,or you are doing a lot of weights which can cause a lot of stretch marks,Lubrication with any oil or petroleum jelly helps in improving the quality of scars.Use them for about 3-6 then the scars wouls start settling down and would look less apparent, and the colour would also improve.There are a lot of expensive creams but none would remove the marks.Lasers may help to a minor degree in reducing them.If you can wait then that is the best treatment since nothing will eliminate the scars or the stretch marks.
