    Have any of the members here gotten stretch marks on their skin from rapid weight gain while bulking or just getting fat?

    yep. everyone is going to tell you not to worry about them, but to you it will be a big deal.

    but seriously...don't worry about them.

    They eventually fade and turn skin color. Still noticeable up close though.

    you can buy shit to put on them to help them fade. use lotion on the area after taking a shower and it should slow it down.

    Nope.
    Its genetics folks. Your skin either has elasticity or it doesn't.
    Plenty of vitamine E manufacturers and other "snake oil" products have been forced to change their claims due to false advertising.
    Yes, there have been one or two studies, funded by the manufacturers, that "claim" success, but, it comes down to genetics.

    Easiest way to prevent them is to slowly gain your weight. I have them on my legs, belly, arms and neck. All from various stages of growth throughout my life.
    Comes with the game, wear em like commitment badges.

    All up and down my biceps, into my armpit, some on my groin area, some on my calves, couple on the back of my triceps. One time a chic thought I was in a horrible knife fight or something..... no, those are just stretch marks... she was like OH I have those.

    Really you stupid bitch? Let me guess, they are all over your fucking fat ass...

    no non prescription lotion can penetrate that deep

    tretinoin might be able to help

    the lotion is more preventative than fixing it. Just do some cuttting.
