If you have ever been overweight for instance then you will probably have noticed some stretch marks appearing. Similarly, young people who experience sudden growth spurts in adolescent can find that they develop stretch marks.
What Causes The Marking?
Stretch marks are often referred to as stria or striae by healthcare professionals such as dermatologists. Usually, stretch marks begin as a very noticeable red colour but this often fades to a silvery whitish colour; however even once they have faded, many people feel self conscious of them and avoid wearing clothing which will reveal them. The cause of the marks is down to the dermis (the middle section of your skin layers) splitting when the skin is stretched and this is why pregnancy, weight gain and growth are often the cause of stretch marks.
What Can I Do To Remove Them?
There are numerous creams, oils and lotions on the market which purport to “cure”stretch marks but the jury is definitely out on how successful these treatments are. Whilst some of the nutrient rich oils can definitely improve the texture of the skin, thus improving the overall appearance of the stretch marks, there is no oil or cream which can cause them to totally disappear.
