Now a days many creams are available in the market that claim to lighten stretch marks from skin. Although I have not tried any such cream or not asked any person who has used such creams, but these companies claims to give postive results.

Cucumbers are various nutrients and skin lightening compounds that lighten the stretch marks. It provides a lot of moisture that leads to growth of new cells that repair the cracked skin. Take the smaller cucumber and cut in into slices. Now take one slice and rub it slowly over the stretch marks for 5 minutes.

This will not only heal the skin but also make it soft and more flexible. You can add some lemon drops to avocado paste for getting better and more effective results.
Use an electric massager
Take a electric massager and daily give 5 minutes massage to the cracked skin. Giving massages will speed up the blood flow to the area with stretchmarks, thus providing essential vitamins and minerals to skin. Using such massagers also help to increase the elasticity of skin preventing further marks.
Exercise provides more blood and oxygen to skin that helps to give extra nutrients and vitamins that repair the cracked skin. Remember to exercise more for the region or part of the body where you have more stretch marks. Usually the stretch marks are on chest thighs and stomach, so chest push ups and pull ups are good.
Similarly for stomach crunches are good and for thighs cycling, swimming and sit ups are helpful. One can also massage the area where you have cracked skin. Take one ice cube and slowly rub in on your marks. Follow this method daily to quickly remove stretch marks.
