    Exfoliate and moisturize to minimize existing stretchmarks. A lotion with vitamin E helps.

    it is said eating right and making sure you take the necessary multivitamins and minerals

    A diet rich in vitamin E should help.

    Since they are caused by muscle growing too fast for the skin to keep up, you may want to consider your muscle growth phase

    Lots of pregnant women use cocoa butter, and vitamin E.

    Consistent weight gain, that's not too fast, will slow, but, not prevent, stretch marks. Some folks have skin that get stretchmarks easily.

    Since you're to lazy, or to stupid, to complete a profile and upload pictures, that's just a guess. You were to lazy to even enter your weight and height. It would be reasonable to assume you exhibit such poor performance elsewhere in your life, as well.

    I lost weight too fast, and was left with stupid tiny stretch marks. But hey, there another part of me so......

    Maintain your weight and maintain a diet and your body doesnt lose or gain weight and no stretch marks will happen

    That's all well and good, But what if I have a 'growth' resulting from an incident enticed by the best man, a cheap bottle of champagne and a broken condom after my sisters wedding icon_lol.gif

    The guy that owns my gym is a former competitive body builder. He's in his early 50's and the skin on his body is smooth and flawless. He said that after every single shower, he applies lotion and has since he was in his teens.

    Strivectin is supposed to help with stretch marks. And face wrinkles.

    Strivectin.......a bit expensive and you have to apply it and use it for a while, but it works to reduce the stretch marks.
