I recently lost 20 pounds and now have stretch marks on my hips and inner thighs. How do I get rid of them?
Congratulations on your success! As for those stubborn stretch marks, there’s hope.
The popular acne medication Retin-A (or tretinoin) has shown some promise in minimizing early stretch marks. In a study published in the Journal of the American Medical Association, people who used the cream daily saw improvements within two months. One catch: You need a prescription from your doctor to get Retin-A. It is also not recommended for women who are pregnant or nursing.
As for other commonly suggested remedies such as cocoa butter, vitamin E oil and other creams, you might try them, but with no such obvious evidences.
