Most of us are frustrated with the problem of stretch marks which is usually a result of weight loss or simple weight gain. These are typical lines and crack like marks on the skin which are of a much fainter colour and can at times also be very protruding.

Stretch marks are caused when the dermis tears. Rapid growth or rapid weight changes will lead to quicker stretch marks. They may also be influenced by hormonal changes that are associated with puberty, pregnancy, body building, or hormone replacement therapy. These are very stubborn and biological symptoms which take a lot of time to get removed. These narrow lines that occur on the surface of the skin, will take a while to go away permanently. They are usually red when they appear and then fade to a silvery white colour. These are common among women, and sometimes even among men.

When the body grows, the connecting fibres in the dermis slowly start stretching out to make pace with slow growth. However, rapid growth leads to sudden stretching. This causes the dermis to tear, making way for the deeper layers of skin to appear.

This Are The Causes Of Stretch Marks For Women

Stretch marks are a common phenomenon among the women. The skin has three layers. Stretch marks form on your dermis, or middle layer when the connective tissue is stretched beyond the limits of its elasticity. This is normally due to rapid expansion or contraction of the skin, like weight gain. However, below are the 4 causes of stretch marks.

1> Rapid weight gain will also the next reason why you may spot a stretch mark on your body. When you gain weight quickly, the skin stretches thereby giving rise to marks that you see.

2> Puberty is another reason for the mark. The rapid growth is typical in young people going through puberty. This can lead to stretch marks.

3> Certain medical conditions can cause stretch marks, like Marfan syndrome and Cushing’s syndrome. Marfan syndrome leads to decreased elasticity in the skin tissue, and Cushing’s syndrome can lead the body to produce too much of a hormone that leads to rapid weight gain and skin fragility.

4> PregnancyThe prime reason for the occurrence of stretch marks is pregnancy. Post pregnancy, the stretch marks will seem prominent. This occurs because of the sudden loss of weight and contraction of the stomach after birth.

> On Hips and Breasts: Hips and breasts will also have marks. When the body quickly puts on weight, these marks appear clear on the body parts like hips and breasts, that is an indication that your skin is stretching.

> On Under Arms: sometimes your underarms are also prone top stretch marks. Rubbing vitamin E cream in the initial days of appearance will help cure it. However, the prime reason is weight gain. Weight gain causes stretch marks pretty much everywhere on your body.
