Basically I’ve put a little bit of weight on not even that much but for some reason I’ve got stretch marks literally everywhere nearly. Boobs, legs (even at the bottom of my legs like the calves) and my bum and it’s making me feel so rubbish cause summer is approaching and cause they’re red they’re so obvious!
I honestly don’t know why they’re as bad as they are cause I’ve not even put a massive amount of weight on

Stretch marks can also be a genetic thing! I have some on my inner thighs, boobs and I have noticed some developing on my hips. I just try and moisturise regularly to help with skin elasticity but once they are there, there isn’t a lot you can do as the deeper layers of skin have already ripped and it will take time to heal up. Honestly try not to worry about them, no decent human being cares as they are perfectly normal and natural. I’ve never had anyone comment or noticeably look at mine and I’ve had them for a few years x

My parents don’t have any and my grandparents don’t as far as I’m aware. Oh really? I thought you could get rid of them? I mean your probably right no one probably cares I don’t notice or think anything of people who have them too but I just don’t like it. X

Try Lierac Phytolastil gel and solution. It won't get rid of them, but the red or shiny aspect will disappear and it prevents you from getting any more. Costs a bit but good stuff.
