I have heard that extra virgin olive oil is suppssed to vanish your
stretch marks. Is there any truth to this before I start dong this?!

I don't think so. Unfortunately, depending on the type of stretch mark, they don't really go away. You can lighten them, but generally you'll still be able to see them. As for olive oil, never heard that one. Bio Oil, and vitamin E oil is usually what people use.

I can't see it working - sorry. Oils, cocoa butter, and rich moisturizers are often used to try to prevent stretch marks (by easing the skin) which occur when the body is growing too fast to keep up with skin growth. Those marks are actually a form of deep scar tissue when the skin has 'torn' all the way to the dermis and reformed - tied to the growth spurts of teenage years or pregnancy etc. The lines can fade (time helps!), or look better with some of the newer peptide formulas. (Warning these can be expensive - I'd love to hear from chicks who have tried either Snoxin or Mederma for stretch marks.) Honestly I don't stress mine... I've had them on my hips since I was 15. Lets just call them character lines

There isn't anything that can make them disappear. But moisturizing is a great way to make them less obvious.

I'v heard the same thing so i figured I'd give it a try I mean it cant hurt and is extremely moisturizing. I have been using it before bed (you end up looking all oily and nasty) for the last month and I have seen no difference on my really noticeable streach marks but I can say my skin is a whole lot softer and smoother then before.

that would make anything on your body "vanish" is plastic surgery.

Nothing makes them vanish but bio oil,lotions and exfoliating do help minimize!!
