Stretch marks are long and narrow streaks, people develop when the body changes. These marks start out as red or purple streaks but end up as silver shiny-like scars on the body. Stretch marks appear everywhere on the body. However, they are more prominent around the upper thighs, breasts, upper arms and tummy especially after sudden weight gain. 90% of pregnant women are also bound to have stretch marks.
Stretch marks are caused by the skin stretching out over a period of time. When we gain weight, the body tries to keep up with the changes by stretching out the skin. However, the human skin can only stretch so far and after that it loses its capability to return back to normal. It is this shortcoming that leads to a tear in the middle of the skin and voila…a stretch mark is born!
