Stretch marks back of thighs...????


Thought I was doing well on the stretch mark front UNTIL i turned around infront of a long mirror. i have a purple road map on each thigh. They are defo not veins but stretch marks. suprised to get them here but I have put the weight on. Anyone else got them here? Is it too late to start using bio-oil?

I have them on the back of my thighs. You can use anything to ease the annoyance of getting stretch marks but they happen on an under layer of skin taht lotions/oils can't reach. Your call- I'm not the best on lotions or anything but I use it when I can and it helps with the stretching itchiness.

Sticky- It's fine to use if you like the way it makes your skin feel. It isn't going to help you not get stretch marks but it will make it so that if you are going to get them they are less painful/annoying and so on. I started to get them from a large weight gain that happened from stopping my birth control right before I found I was pregnant and I believe it was because the weight came so fast. Good luck and I hope you don't get them.

i would just keep my fingers crossed and use ur money to buy a cheaper moisturiser which will help to make sure ur skin doesnt itch if u do get them. i think genes has a lot to do with it.....thanks a lot mum!!

I have them on my thighs too and back of my knees and hips and pretty much everywhere but not my bump! My bump is the only place i use bio oil (hips too but some of those are pre preg). I find it makes the ones i get less itchy and sore so i keep using it. I wouldnt have bothered only i got two big bottles during the half price sale in superdrug and it seems to last a very long time so it was worth it for me for a bit more comfort.

I have some stretchmarks from my last pregnancy, inside of thighs, both butt cheeks, sides, bottom of belly, bellybutton (due to piercing) and my boobs! Sounds bad but tbh they have faded away to nothin over the years! nothin helps or prevents them but I am lathering myself in bio oil this time just for the heck of it!!
