(posting this over in the health section as well) So I know they'll never totally go away... but I have a few on my breasts that are really really red and angry looking that i'd love to lighten a few shades at least. During pregnancy for a little while I was using this special skin conditioning oil from a skin care company. It helped to lighten them quite a bit. But... it's expensive and the bottle was small. So, I was wondering if there are any great do-it-yourself recipes?

My mom swears by plain old vitamin E - just poke a hole in the capsule and rub it in.

When your breast get smaller again they will go away. Sweet almond oil helps too.
