Stretch Marks

A bit of a stretch

Stretch marks appear when your skin is rapidly stretched following pregnancy, sudden growth or rapid weight gain. Skin is naturally elastic and can cope well with some degree of stretching. But if it is overly stressed, the dermis can tear, allowing blood vessels and deeper layers of skin to become visible. Stretch marks are often red or purple when they first form but will later fade to silvery white when your blood vessels contract. Some people are more prone to stretch marks than others. There is evidence to suggest that genetics may play a role and that those suffering from Cushing’s Disease or Marfan’s Syndrome are more likely to develop such marks.

Can you improve the appearance of stretch marks?

If you are prone to developing stretch marks, you can’t change your skin but you can help it out a little. Eating healthily, exercising and keeping hydrated will all make a difference.
