Best Stretch Mark Removal Products

Updated on November 4, 2011

Have you been attempting to ward off your stretch marks during pregnancy? You're not a lone! Over 50% of woman get stretch marks while they're: going through puberty & pregnant. These lucky little scars don't just effect woman either. Any sort of weight gain can cause them to happen. However, this doesn't mean that there isn't anything that you can do about them! There are many different tried and true methods, but I'd like to share with you what's worked best for me. Here's an over view of: Shea Butter, Bio Oil, and Neosporin.

Stretch Mark Removal Products

Shea Butter (raw)

I picked this up at a health food store, 2 for $10.00. Shea butter has honestly been the least effective for me. I've been using it since I found out I was pregnant, and I haven't noticed it either fading my stretch marks, or warding them away. I was putting this stuff all over my body twice a day for months, and still I've got a few stretch marks on my stomach & quite a few on my thighs. Sorry shea butter, but we just don't see eye to eye.

Bio Oil

I have noticed fading in the marks with the use of bio oil. My dark marks have turned into a pale pink. Although some people complain about the price of this stuff, I don't really see the problem. Especially because such a tiny amount goes a long way! I've been using it twice a day for two weeks now and I still have around half a bottle. I do believe my two ounce bottle was around $11.00 at riteaid. I think its definitely worth the try.

Neosporin

Now maybe its just the way that things got lined up. I'm not quite sure. However, two days after using this I began to notice that my stretch marks were changing in color. They have became much much lighter. I noticed the lightening at first with the use of bio oil but I feel as though I've seen results with this within a few days.


Basically, on terms of stretch marks, I think the most important thing to do is be patient. Everyone's body is completely different, and you've got to find the right treatment for your own skin. Not one thing will work for anyone, but its worth a try in my opinion. Those three things together cost around $30.00 or so. I think risking that much is worth getting rid of the embarrassing marks. I am pregnant, so lord knows how many more I'll acquire (I'm 7 months) but I can say that they have began to fade already! You can also attempt cocobutter (which I haven't bought, because I feel its similar to shea), mederma (didn't want to spend the money), and other over the counter scar products. You can also use topical products from a dermatologist, as well as look into laser treatments. You pick your poison & let your body show you what's best!
