Some of the marks: Some of the marks but not vompletely. The substsnce in vitamin e can help with yhe collagen in the skin but cannot restore it to the original state.

This will do nothing: Vit e will do no more than any other lubricant. Are you pregnant or gaining weight? Many products claim to be good for this, but they are not honest in attempting to make the sale. The one that may help a little is retinoic acid ( tretinoin, retina). Nothing will erase them.
