    Hi GEmma

    I get those too and no, its not a weight thing, my sister is a size 6 and gets them as well. You can get some cream for them or just use a good scrub which will get rid of them as well. Its just where your pores are more open. x

    In actual fact E45 works well, after using a good scrub twice a day. Not expensive at all :).

    I use that and mine are now under the surface, hardley see them at all. x

    I have had them for years! They are blocked hair folicals! My sister has used an aloe vera scrub on them (doctors recommendation) and hers have practically gone! I keep forgetting to do it and I still have mine!

    I always find that in the summer the sun makes them go away! Also the doctor can prescribe a cream, but once again I haven't got round to doing that!

    hey, bio-oil! like i suggested for your stretch marks :) also agreeing with other posts, a good scrub and yes definitely the exfoliating mitts, i could never go back to a regular loofah now! i have them on pretty much my entire upper arms and legs, a lot nicer to look at after a few months of keeping to the scrub-exfoliate-oil routine :) xxx
