I am a 16 year old girl and I have stretch marks on my inner thighs which have been there since I was about 12. I'm really embarrassed about them and it makes me very self-consious in the summer when people can see them, when swimming etc. I have heard on tv that there is a new product called bio-oil which is supposed to be able to stop stretch marks being so visible. I was wondering if there was anybody else who has the same problem as me or who has tried the product. It is quite expensive for me and I didn't want to buy it if it wasn't going to work. I would be very grateful for any help or advice.

Hi, when I was around your age I got stretch marks on my inner thighs, but they do fade with age! I'm now 25 and I can hardly see them. I didnt use anything to get rid of them because they will always be there. But dont worry too much about them. Everyone has them!! And they will fade!
