Skin brushing  supposedly helps the appearance of stretch marks. I started a few days ago and I'm hoping to see some positive difference on my hips and butt--didn't even know I had stretch marks there until I started brushing, lol.

Stretch marks can be described as lines on the surface of the skin, with a little risqué. These lines are mainly in the abdominal wall below the navel, but may also occur in the thighs and breasts. Although pregnancy is the leading cause of stretch marks, other reasons include weight gain or loss, rapid growth (especially teenagers), the factors of heredity, stress and changes in physical conditions.

I just read up on the Vicks Vapor Rub & most people say that it really works. I wish I'd read this before purchasing Bio-oil. I am going to give it (vicks) a try.

Here is what works. I did a rotation at a burn icu and when we send pts home we would always tell them to use shea butter or cocoa butter on the scars 3x a day.
So one day I asked the doc "so shea butter really helps remove scars?"....now he's like 60-something yr old burn surgeon so I assume he's seen his fair share of scars on patients pre/post burn.

I thought he would say "YES" and I'll feel happy about what I do at home. Instead he said "NO". He said what works is the "massaging" of the skin when you apply lotion/cream. It doesn't matter what you use as long as you spend time each day massaging the area to generate new skin cells? I guess.
So doing this several times a day will help stimulate skincell turnover and viola...new skin...less visible scar. Clap Makes sense.

Now I still use my shea butter and cocoa butter mostly because the consistency (they are hard like butter but melt easily) aides in the "massaging" of my skin. If I use a lotion, I realize I don't spend as much time massaging the lotion into my skin. But with the hard butters, it's like I'm kneading my skin which is good and helps stimulate it a bit better and it takes longer to do.

Hope that helps.  Not to say some products don't have beneficial intrinsic properties for scars (like vit e,shea butter, cocoa butter) but nothing is scientifically proven and if it is, they have to somehow find a way to claim it does so by removing the confounding factor of  "skin massage" involved in the application of the product to your skin...

I have stretch marks all over and it really kills my self-confidence. I espescially hate the ones on my arms and the back of my legs. Coco Butter worked for the stretch marks on my stretch marks between my thighs but no where else. I'm going to start derma rolling and using Japanese Camelia Kissi Oil, it's supposed to penetrate deeper than any other oil.

Peachi - thanks for providing this information... I like facts! Geek  And I do understand that the massaging the skin helps to stimulate new skin cells.. it makes perfect sense.  Also not discounting the shea butter method.. it incorporates what product works best to create successful results.  
 
I have some on my tummy area and my arms from my 80lb loss of weight and my after my daughter.. they have lightened up after I did a 6mos regimen of Palmer's stretch mark cream... I will invest in the raw shea butter to see if I can get better results.
 
This is a great/helpful thread!Tongue
