    stretch marks

    i bulked over the summer and got a few stretch marks..mainly on the chest and upper arms.....however this week they have doubled and my weight hasnt even changed....actually is down a little....on top of that i havent worked out this entire week due to work and school.....any thoughts on why the scars are coming out now? theres many that are not yet scars just minor indentions...any advice on how to make sure those dont turn to all out scars?

    try coco butter or drink a shit load of water... if your body retains some water then there is no reason for your body to shrink and your skin to stretch over the muscles. just a thought though

    Tried Mederma.... just one of those over hyped products in the market IMO...
    It did help reduce the stretch marks... i won't deny that fact...
    I tried some Pure E Oil however, and it seemed to have work half as fast
    compared to Mederma... Search and old post from me and you shall see a similar post on stretch marks...

    Try some pure E 1st...
    If ure seriously not getting any results then go get a tattoo
    over it... i have read previously of some members here
    who have had tattoos done to conseal their stretch marks...
    perhaps it might work... try and search for old posts...
    read their remarks and reviews on it... then make a desicion...
    just don't be too hasty and live to regret it later on. Good Luck.

    tattoo? no maybe less noticable but go tanning and now your can see them plus they are beige..assuming your white.
    im sorry no it'll be even more noticable
    i dont think its a good idea...well sorry but i think its not the smartest thing to do

    I have pretty much learned that if you got stretch marks...you got stretch marks. Nothin you can do about it, tan and they can be less noticeable but they are there pretty much for good man. As for why they have come up as of late I think it just takes some time for them to come out. I am not totally certain and I am no expert but I think it takes a lil while for them to come out. Its not like a cut in the skin that u notice as soon as you break the skin. But that is from my experience as sometimes i get a bunch outta no where. But I dont know if there is a firm answer to this. Try some remedies and see if they work, for me they dont. Good luck.

    iv got alot of stretchmarks on my chest and biceps, i find the best thing is just rubbing lots of vitamin E cream onto the affected areas after a shower. however, once you have them, you cant get rid of them, just hope theyll fade fast. iv been told that a bit of a tan makes them less noticable (or at least look less bad). maybe if its so bad you could consider laser surgery?

    as for the 'indentations', thats how most of minestarted out; really small little marks, then they got much larger and redder unfortunately. good luck!!!!

    wear um proud bro, that means youve exceeded your normal size in terms of bulk. You were predestined to be a certain size at birth, unless you got fat or muscular, and you accomplished it. Props to ya.
