I have the same problem with stretch marks. Bleck. They're annoying but like you said I don't go strolling around town nude either lol
Palmer's body creams have several that are supposed to be good for stretch marks. A friend used the Cocoa Butter with Vitamin E cream during pregnancys and she never got marks. Another is Palmer's Cocoa Butter for stretch marks
with elastin. I have both but I haven't tried them for a very long time. At the moment I'm trying Nivea Firming body lotion because of my weight loss but I'm not sure if that will have any effect on stretch marks.. All those are available at woolies/coles/kmart etc for about $10 or $15. Some chemists have little sample size bottle of Palmer's too for around $2.
Apparently they fade over time and genetics play a part in who gets them. My counsin is a size 8 and she even has stretch marks on her B cup breasts! >.<
Some fake tans can hide them as well apparently. But if you go to dark they stand out more I've heard! Very annoying! lol
At least you know you aren't alone huh! Good luck
Please let me know if you find anything works well for them!
