Default How I faded my Stretchmarks

Around 8 months ago I had severe stretchmarks that pretty much stumped my activity in the gym, I stopped going for around 3 weeks as the stretchmarks had a serious effect on my motivation. To paint an idea of how severe they are, here are pics of them around 8 months ago.





I know stretchmarks can immensely effect you're state of mind, So I'm making this thread to let people know who have them how I faded them.
Pics taken a few days
In terms of getting rid of them
I started with cocoa butter, then vitamin e cream, then I recently started using bio-oil and it seems to have done the trick

Also I don't know if this matters, it might not but I started taking vitamins/fish oil/ Flax seed oil and overall I started eating healthier.

I never had them up on the bicep like that. Mine are generally more around the armpit. And I've never seen them on the back.

I got them on my back from growing to fast, well half of them due to gaining like 6 inches of height in one year.

Did this happen while lifting? Gaining height and mass?
