    Dear Ilites,
    Like most of you, i'm also on diet program and also doing workouts.I have started to notice strech marks in thighs/butt.Its looking similar to the post pregnancy strech marks.I checked with a doc. immediately and she told, it's because i have lost weight and hence the marks.Gave some kinda vaseline solution and i'm applying that.Still i have not seen any improvement.

    Friends,are you also experincing anything like this? Please let me kno any special oil or solution to get rid of these marks.There are not many, but they cannot be ignored though :-(.I'm very upset.

    Thanks in advance.

    Dear Ilites,
    As said in my earlier post, my stretch marks have increased because of my heavy work out and losing weight.
    Have any one used cocoa butter cream/lotions for removing stretch marks? If yes, can you give me he name and place where to get one in chennai? Does himalaya product have any cream for removing stretch marks?
    Plese help.

    Dear Padma,
    Thanks for the reply.Let me try out Franch oil for some time.
    I heard from few friends of mine tell about cocoa butter cream/lotion which is rich in Vitamin E and it nourishes the skin and the strecth marks go invisible within a weeks time.All of them are out of INDIA and so cannot suggest shops where i can get it here.So just wanted to chk if any one had any experince with that.

    Dear Narma,
    I used olive oil, but it did not help for me.Try it out anyways, coz my strecth marks are intense and widely spread.I have attached the pic of FRANCH OIL NH, as our fellow Ilites have suggested that in my earlier posts.Chk that out and try to get it.
