The only thing more stubborn than eyebags is stretch marks. Stretch marks can be found in the breast, hips, buttocks and abdomen area, and they often appear after pregnancy, the use of Corticosteroid creams, lotions, and pills, or if a person loses or gains a significant amount of weight. Stretch marks naturally fade over time, but for those who want them gone asap, here are a few products and methods you can try.
- Retinoic acid and Tretinoin creams restore collagen in the skin and flattens uneven skin. However, these creams may be harmful during pregnancy.
