    You treat stretchmarks with love and respect, and they will treat you to gawking stares from complete strangers.

    Emu oil
    or
    Palmer's Cocoa butter

    2x daily

    And drink more water.

    Stretch marks are kind of like callouses, cuts and bruises on your shins (deadlifts) and puking while squatting. Consider them medals of honor in the lifting world.
    Give chalk a chance.
