The most common and effective way to get rid of stretch marks after pregnancy is by using creams containing Vitamin E or Cocoa Butter.
These two products can help nourish your skin, and aids healing in the damaged areas of your skin which show the visible marks.

Stretch marks can be caused by pregnancy, rapid growth or weight gain. Once you have stretch marks there really is no way to repair the skin completely. However, there are a few treatment options that can refine how they look.

Stretch Marks happen to look very ugly if they are dark and are in the most visible regions.
Post pregnancy wearing a saree can take quite a dent on your self confidence.
I have tried a lot of creams , but I have been using this cream for the past month and a half and my stretch marks have faded.
Hope this helps http://bit.ly/ijqayv
