is there anything you can do to avoid getting stretchmarks as you grow?

I have them around my shoulders/arms (at least I can hide them!)
Stretch Marks techincally are permanent, but it all comes down to skin type how elastic your skin is, they say that vitamin E oil might help but i doubt it

Exactly what Zeek said. Vitamin E cream certianly can’t hurt. Stretch marks are really, really common for bodybuilders. You get used to them after a while! You can actually use them as a gauge of new growth! ;) I knew when I got new ones on my triceps that I’d gotten some good tricep growth happening.. Ok, they're not a really good gauge of growth.. But they are very common!

a few regard stretch marks as badges of honour , war marks , showing them off with pride

yeah sorry, man.. Try the cream though, who knows. If it helps they storta fade over time, well more they change appearance.
