I would believe that once the skin has stretched and lost it's ability to "bounce back" there is not a lot that can be done! After my first child I had stretch marks and with time they faded from ugly purple to a shade lighter than my natural skin tone. However after another 6 children the ol' body aint what she used to be and no matter how many sit ups, crunches or otherwise the skin isn't going to snap back, although under there the muscles are all good! I've had natural and c-section delivers and the upside of natural is you are up and on your feet again so much quicker, and able to carry on as normal. In reality, any woman who dosen't have a million dollar a year pay check is going to have stretch marks, and without all the surgeries they can afford and skin lighteners, airbrush atrists and everything else, they too would and do suffer stretch marks we just don't see them. It's a badge of honour for us Mums!
