Stretch Marks?


#1

Getting stretch marks, what have you boys found is good for em?


#2

Once you've got em, you need surgery to get rid of them. Prevention is key.

You need to stretch on a regular basis. In addition to stretching your muscles, your skin will stretch, but at a pace it can cope with.

Also keep your skin hydrated. Use lotions or oils in the problem areas (pec/armpit area seems to be the normal candidate for men)


#3

I know pregnant women have had success with cocoa butter and others w/ vitamin E. I never tried either. Wish I had.


#4

Try some gamma linoleic (sp?) acid capsules (similar to vitamin E pills). Some good GLA pills are evening primrose oil and borage oil. Rub that on your skin like you would the oil from vitamin E pills. The above suggestions work too.


#5

usually i've moved on to another girl before that becomes a problem.
