Dark stretch marks on thigh. What kind of cream or treatment will help?

I have dark stretch marks on my inner and outer thighs. In about a week I am going on a vaction and i will be in a bathing suit and short shorts that will be showing my marks. I am very self concious about them, so I would like to find a way to make the darkness go away before my trip. Although, I do not want to get laser treatment. I would prefer a natural or cream to use. Thank you!

Hello,
Welcome to healthcare magic
Treatment of stretch marks is not so easy even with lasers. And in a week no treatments will make the mark go. You can try a camouflage cream of your skin tone. Most of them are water resistant also.
You can apply a moisturizing cream containing aloe vera and massage it twice a day over the srtretch marks. It will become firm faster and will also lighten gradually.
Hope this helped.
Don't let the stretch marks prevent you from enjoying your vacation. Donot be so concious , almost everybody has it.
Take care
