Hiya gals, I got this info from a wonderful site www.pioneerthinking.com I thought of sharing these tips with ya all and I quote:

Olive Oil - by DK2THOU
Olive oil is the answer to everything! I learned from reading the Bible just how valuable olive oil is. It is so good for your body inside and out. I use it all the time in the kitchen but also also on my skin, hair and lips. I believe this is why I didn't get stretch marks when I was pregnant.

Stretch Marks - by BARBARA B/ LOS ANGELES, CA
A family member told me years ago when I was pregnant with my daughter to rub pure cocoa butter twice daily over my stomach and breasts. When my daughter was born, there were no stretch marks at all on my stomach. Now in my fifties, I've been passing this information on to my daughter, daughters of friends and anyone I knew who was pregnant. My daughter now has 3 sons and no stretch marks. But once you have stretch marks it is difficult to get rid of. The key is prevention.
Some seemed skeptical but they did it and no stretch marks. It really works.
I used to buy the Hersheys cocoa butter directly from a pharmacy.

Wish u luck... cheers.

When you are feeling stressed and about to breakdown, just remember: STRESSED is just DESSERTS spelled backwards... Its a piece of cake!

This is a Flabby Thigh Recipe

1/2 cup of sea salt
1/4 cup of clay
1 tsp of ground coffee
1 tsp of cinnamon
1 tsp of dried and ground peppermint leaves or 10 drops of peppermint oil
15 drops of grapefruit essential oil
15 drops of orange essential oil 
Coffee stimulates fatty congestion and grapfruit stimulates the lymphatic system removing toxins from the body

combine all the ingredients together, breaking up and clumps.
Store in a airtight container for upto 1 year.

To use combine 2 tbs of the mix with enough water or milk to form a smooth paste and massage into the thigh and buttocks area.

Normally I'm not the "Beauty Secrets" type, but since it came up - Stretch Marks.  the Avon Stretch Mark Minimizer.

I bought it a year or so back (and the tube is still going strong!) because I gained a lot of weight and have stretch marks on my breasts, thighs, hips, tummy, .. pretty much everywhere.

It really works. Within a few weeks of using it (every second day) my (purple) stretch marks were gone. The white ones remain, I think there might be no hope for those, but the "new" purple ones? finito.

isn't there anything that helps against white stretchmarks? not even a little?

Oh I feel so delightfully white trash! Mommy, I want a mullet!

i'm pregnant, and every doctor i've been to so far has advised me to use almond oil to prevent stretch marcks.
as the oil smells, well, of vegetable oil, i advise u add some essential oil such as lavander and camomile, they're the perfect combo if u put the oil on after a bath or relaxing evening shower and are planning to have a nice sleep.

Ok, sense we are talking about stretch marks, I'll tell you what worked for me.  When started to develop, I also had stretch marks all over my breast, the white ones on my rear and thighs.  I lost a lot of weight in my 20's and then became pregnant.  I knew I was going to have stretch marks and looked for whatever I could st prevent them.  Yes, the key is prevention.
  Anyway, 3 totally different people told me peanut oil.  Yes, you read that right, peanut oil.  See, i grew up in Va. Beach, the home of the ARE, or the Edgar Casey (sp? it is so early for me right now) Foundation, which was something he said was to be used for massaging the skin, and for stretch marks.  Now I didn't read that myself, my Mom was one of those three people, and to be honest, I didn't believe her until two other women who didn't know my Mom or each other told me.....I didn't get any stretch marks, and my other ones didn't go away, they are just faded.  You can hardly see them. 
   I think the Olive Oil would be good, I have read a lot about how good it is for you inside and out too.
