Stretch marks

Hi guys

I have a major problems with stretch marks this time 2 years ago i weighed 4 stone and suffered for anoxreia and i met this amazing guy and he helped me through it and now im 13 stone and i love my weight but i feel like i embarrass him by having these stretcg marks ive tried everything to get rid of them, im embarrassed to wear short sleeved tios as i have them all over my arms on the inside, on my boobs, on my side, on my belly and my thighs.

I dont want to change my weight i just want to reduce the purply/ red colour of my stretch marks

I have stretch marks too because of the weight fluctuations that happen with endometriosis, their essentially scar tissue and since I had cystic acne I had a lot of acne scars and the only thing that's helped them go away was CeraVe, it contains proteins that rebuild skin.

You could also go to a dermatologist and ask them for a percription 'rosiver' which works as a chemical peel.


Where can you buy CeraVe?


Any drug store


I've heard people use bio oil which you can get in boots which is apparently good but I've not used that I only have some small stretch marks thankfully. Might be of help to you though?
