Vitamin E: oil can be applied to the skin to help fade scars. It's worth a try. You can get a bottle of it at the drug store. Peace and good health. ...Read more
Stretch marks: Stretch marks are scars in the deeper layer of skin, so just like any other scar they can't be removed. Shea butter or cocoa butter may help prevent them (e.g. during pregnancy) but won't remove them. I treat stretch marks with a series of 6 fractional Erbium laser treatments which for most patients can reduce their appearance by up to 75%!!! Don't know of anything else with similar success rates. ...Read more
Is it safe to use pure cocoa and shea butters on belly during pregnancy?not a cream,the pure butter itself,to prevent stretch marks
Not if they're there: Cocoa butter can help moisturize the skin and reduce the chances of developing stretch marks.

However, some skin products do contain chemicals that can harm fetuses. Visit http://www.Ewg.Org/skindeep/ to check these products (it does mention moderate hazard of flat iron spray due to allergy potential but it has low developmental ; reproductive toxicity). ...Read more
Not effective: Acne scars are forever. Vitamin e oil in my experience is not good at treating these scars. The most effective means to treat acne scars (there are 3 types of acne scars) is usually to have skin resurfacing with an instrument called fraxel. You will need several treatments and they aren't cheap, but they are among the most effective and safest ways to treat acne scars. ...Read more
Which oil - coconut, olive, castor, bio oil or Johnson's baby oil with vitamin e, is best to remove stretch marks on legs, thighs and buttocks?
Can refined sweet almond oil be used over glyc acid or retinol to prevent redness and help hydratation? I read that this oil helps exfoliate the skin
Not alone: Almond oil alone isn't an exfoliant which "removes dead skin cells" that requires the addition of either an acid(like glycolic or alpha hydroxy which chemically remove cells) or mechanical means(like sugar, salt, walnut shell). It is an emollient which "hydrates" and softens skin and may reduce redness. Retinols work at a molecular level to alter skin thickness, pigmentation and collagen. ...Read more
