There are tons of articles you can read on stretch marks. Topical recommendations for ‘curing’ stretch marks are hit or miss, so you can decide whether to spend your money on those. The consensus to prevent excessive stretching of the skin is to treat internally by eating right so your skin is healthy. This doesn’t mean you won’t get stretch marks, only that they’ll be less severe than if your skin had the elasticity of tanned leather. Keep in mind the marks you do have will fade in time.
Really, I don’t think you should worry much about it. Many federations consider stretch marks to be a byproduct of lifting and don’t count them as skin blemishes, and the tanning products hide them anyway during competition. Also, you shouldn’t be scared to walk around in a tank top because you have stretch marks, you should be scared of rabid badgers. You ever come across a foamy-mouthed badger - run. And when you think you’ve put enough distance between you and it, add another mile for good measure.
Thanks for the suggestions. My friend claimed the cocoa butter stick he used several times a day helped, but to be honest his stretch marks still looked horrible. I have a bunch of vitamin E lying around that can be ingested or applied topically and am going to give it a try for a month, but I’m not expecting much.
I have stretch marks all over. They look horrible but honestly I like getting them, they’re like a badge of honor. Of course it’s easier to get them if you’re tall and/or a fatass.
