Doctor Oz says stretch marks are below the layers of skin that creams can help with. I would think that he would jump on the chance to endorse something. So if he isn't, I tend to believe him.

Actually, lemon juice is great for skin, especially wrinkles. So yes, it's possible it could work a little, probably not a ton by itself. However mixing it with other things could help, and improve the look of stretch marks.

I'm 20 years old and a mother of two and one more on the way. I've had stretch marks since my first child and I didn't really mind because they were the light ones. But now that I'm pregnant with my third, I have these dark ones showing all over, even on my legs.


I keep telling myself that it's OK because I'm pregnant, but lately I'm getting more and more self conscious about them. I'm embarrassed to wear shorts. Someone said lemon juice works to remove them. Does lemon juice really work?

I am quite sure lemon juice will do nothing for stretch marks.

When I was pregnant with my son, I used Palmer's cocoa butter for stretch marks. I lathered up the areas prone to stretch marks (breasts, thighs, love handles, and especially the stomach) twice a day. I made it through my entire pregnancy with no stretch marks, and the ones I already had before becoming pregnant, got lightened to the point where you couldn't see them unless you were looking ultra hard for them!


Hope this helps.

I have stretch marks on my calves and lower legs. I would love to find a way to remove them so that I could wear dresses again. Maybe a cream or something I can do at home. Any suggestions?

Stretch marks are scars. You can not make them disappear in thin air. Laser treatment is the way to go.
