- Renee Maudlin Farr I’m using Maderma Scar gel and it seems to be lightening it up. Hard to tell because it is still a pretty fresh scar.

- Julie Highland ‎…had a tummy tuck 2 years ago, and I used maderma, really did work. And I don’t even believe in creams. Can’t even see the scar, and it was a hip to hip cute.

- Julie Highland ‎…or maybe I just had an incredible plastic surgeon.

- Julie Highland cut* ..not cute. Although I am now. lol

- Victoria Lambah-Stoate Used Strivectin and Bio oil – but not for stretch marks or scars more for general smoothing and nourishing – interesting how originally made for stretch marks or scars – then later sold widely to reduce lines

- Latico Leathers LOL Julie! :)

- Stephanie Eldreth i use a red light therapy booth with vibra-shape platform in it at our local tanning salon…i’ve been using it for almost a month now and although i can still see some of the stretch marks

- Stephanie Eldreth they are definitely not as deep and are fading very well

- Holly Ann Mesa I use theobroma oil or theobroma cacao…….I love the smell and I believe it works for me……

- Skin Guru Joyous Body Milk from French line Sampar- it works against collagen breakdown, deeply nourishes and smells amazing!

- Elaine Robinson Arbonne RE9 Body Firming cream – fabulous stuff. Available at www.ernation@myarbonne.co.uk

Lierac Celebrates the 35th Anniversary of Phytolastil


Last week, Lierac celebrated the 35th anniversary of its signature product, Phytolastil. A French physician created the gel and serum duo as a gift to his wife to remedy her post-pregnancy stretch marks, and lo and behold- Lierac was born.

Many of us know all too well that stretch marks work their way into being during times of quick weight gain, such as pregnancy. As the holistic plastic surgeon Dr. Shirley Madere explains, the stretch marks are better prevented than treated, since no treatment, not even surgery, can completely remove the unsightly lines.

To that end, the gel ($33) contains a 35% concentration of their patented alchemilla, ivy, and horsetail to prevent stretch marks from forming, while the Phytolastil Solution ($39) uses an 80% concentration of the same formula to fade existing marks.

In some countries (not ours) health insurance plans cover Phytolastil because it’s considered the best treatment for stretch marks in existence – its potent concoction of flavenoids and tannins smooth and tighten the affected skin like no other. So here’s to 35th years of stress-free bathing suits and low cut blouses. With Phytolastil, women afflicted by stretch marks can diminish them into near-nothingness. Phytolastil is available in select Duane Reade’s, CVS stores, and at www.lierac-usa.com.
