Stretch marks occur because the skin has become overstretched. There are several ways to help get rid of stretch marks but they are not a guarantee to get rid of them.

The best thing for stretch marks is time. Stretch marks fade over time. If you are willing to wait it out then this is one way to go.

There are also numerous creams that can be used such as retin A, vitamin E, and creams designed specifically for stretch mark fading.

Taking hot baths and massages are also great ways to assist in getting rid of those stretch marks because both increase circulation.

Tanning is another way to help with the elimination of stretch marks. Just make sure you use a sun screen.
