Do they shrink,fade away, or what? I have a lot on my stomach from my kids. Also up on my arms.

Use lots and lots of moisterizer--shea or cocoa butter--to help minimize them.

Unfortunately mine became more visibie, but I have really fair and sensitive skin so I don't know if that has anything to do with it. Plus every person is different, hopefully yours will diminish with the help of some creams like suggested above!

I have been using Bio Oil ALOT (like daily) and it has helped TONS! I had watermelon tummy after my son, and stretch marks elsewhere from weight gain over my life (yes I know Im only 23) but I moisturized my entire pregnancy and wish I had used Bio Oil!

same here and they got lighter. My fiance calls them light wave lines.
Just thankful to see them light and not dark. I hardly notice them.

Mine got way more noticeable. I can't afford any of the good stretch mark moisturizers, so I can't recommend anything other than staying covered up. lol

Hmmmmm mine have improved ALOT over time, when I was pregnant I wil always remember the midwife being shocked and remarking 'oh my they're really bad' .... no kidding thanks for that lol You need to moisturise/exfoliate etc keep them in good condition, I used Strivectin at the end of last year and that again helped them to improve but I still think when I lose my belly it'll look like the tide's just gone out ohwell

ditto. I have lots on my stomach and it's annoying and they are not going anywhere. I'm trying to come to terms with them, lol

i know everyone says this but i was the worst one for pulling a face when they said it ' be proud of them you got a beautiful baby at the end of the day' well in my case 4 beautiful baby boys and the last one killed my body off completely lol, im worrying about the weight first and then will worry about the stretch marks, i found a spray tan works wonder though
