When you get to a plateau, think of it as a landing on the stairway to your goal. And maintenance is a lifelong plateau, so a bit of "rehearsal" for maintenance isn't the worst thing in the world

There is a newer product Bio-Oil that has Vitamin E along with many other healing products.

Bio-Oil® is a specialist skincare product that helps improve the appearance of scars, stretch marks and uneven skin tone. Its advanced formulation, which contains the breakthrough ingredient PurCellin Oil™, also makes it highly effective for numerous other skin concerns, including aging skin and dehydrated skin.

I bought some recently to help with my several scars I have on my knees from knee surgery....I was using straight Vitamin E oil before without too much success...and to be honest after only 1 month of using it I have noticed a drastic difference.
Check it out:

Antedotal means that some claims have been made but there is no scientific proof.

Vitamin E oil helps block UV radiation and softens skin. There is antedotal claims that it helps stretch marks.

Sadly, there is very little that can be done about stretch marks...although there's a billion dollar industry that would lead you to believe that there is...lol. If anything, staying well hydrated might offer the greatest benefit.

I was hearing that Vit E oil is great for your skin but what exactly does it do? Is it better than other lotions out there? What about stretch marks? will it soften them?
