Stretch Marks.. help!

I gained a little weight early this year, rather quickly, and now I have an abundance of stretch marks all over. What do you ladies do for stretch marks?

    Whilst I’ve not used it specifically for stretch marks, I used BioOil for scars, and it’s pretty impressive for those. It claims to be good for lots of other skin issues, including stretch marks. Worth a try!

    Nothing to be done about them, sorry. They are literal scars, and unless you're willing to shell out for hugely expensive laser surgery, you're stuck with them. Collagen lotions can reduce their appearance a little, but they'll never disappear completely.

    They will fade with time. Can't get rid of them completely, but they will be less obvious, i guess.

    I found taking collagen powder helps a bit

    No matter what products are marketed out there for stretch marks, there is no magic potion to make them go away. They are genetic and will fade overtime.
