    Cocoa butter is supposed to be good, anecdotally. I'd recommend checking maternity-oriented websites and see what they're recommending for new moms. However it works for them, it ought to do the same for you.

    Mustela makes a great stretch mark cream. Â They will never fully go away but you can make them a little better by using a stretch mark minimizing cream for a while. Â You can lighten them up. Â Depending on teh severity and your financial position there is a laser process that can make them almost unnoticeable. the Fashion Spot

    I have some nasty stretch marks around my arms and chest. Although they never fully go away, Vitamin E lotion will help fade them. You can buy it at any drug store.
