|BETTER BUT NOT CURED (1)||13%|
[YEA] Well I have strech marks since I was 13 and I'm 23 now.. I have strech marks on my hips, buttocks, thighs, inner knees.. You name it... Beacuse they're old now they have this silvery/white color.... My natural skin tone is light brown, so the difference is rather noticeable.
Recently I was searching for natural remedies .. I've spend money on drug store expensive treatments with no results... I heard about Vicks on this site... and I I gave it a try..
Well this is week 3 and I m very content with the results :) My stretch marks are gradually fading:)
This is what I do: every night after exfoliating (and morning sometimes) I apply vicks on the strech marks and on top of it a layer of olive oil (which sometimes I switch for karite oil ). I noticed however that on my right side the strech marks are fading faster than the other side.. I guess this is because I rub the mixture more vigorously on the right side.. Well I will continue and post my results.. God bless!

[NAY] Vicks doesn't work for stretch marks, the smell is so intense, and its the worst thing to use postpartum especially if your a breastfeeding mother because of the smell and stickiness of the gel, and you wouldnt want your baby smelling that. The smell lingers.Replied by Myra

[YEA] I must say that I too have been using the Vicks vapor rub. And after only 5 days my husband says that they are fading. I have really long stretch marks from my first pregnancy (and my son is nine now) across my stomach. WOW!! Thnx EC!!!Replied by Shon
