    So i'm 17 years old and since i can remember i have stretch marks,i was little bit chubby in 7th grade but since i started high school i lost more then 10 pounds,and then when i started working i lost even more and i was skinny,now i gained like 7 pounds i still look skinny but it's in borders of normal weight,the thing is i had stretch marks even before 7th grade and they look like white lines but there's so much of them on my hips ,on my back,i do some exercises every day for 20 minutes and i do look good,but this damn stretch marks make me so insecure and i never wore shorts or skirt in my life because of this .It's just we are all humans but society expects from females to be flawless and we can thank media for that ,but the point it what can i do to reduce them ?

    I think you can buy certain creams/pasted that reduce them but I don’t know any specific ones
    Personally I like to view my stretch marks as a sign my body can grow/change- not positive or negative- but I can see why you don’t like them: they aren’t exactly nice are they?

    Bio Oil is famous for getting rid of stretch marks, I haven't tried it for that reason but I had dark marks left on my face from acne and it improved them massively.
