An article I wrote for Vine Vera Skincare on Stretch Marks, and how to treat/diminish the appearance of them.
Stretch marks can be embarrassing and cause a woman to lose confidence in themselves. Wearing clothing that exposes the areas, such as a bathing suit, shorts, or a crop top may cease to happen. Stretch marks effect some women so badly, it can even interfere with their sex lives and cause complications in their relationships.
What are Stretch Marks?
Stretch marks are caused by the body’s inability to properly expand when excess weight is gained. The skin and tissues tear due to needing extra room for the expanding body mass beneath. Many women during pregnancy develop stretch marks on their stomachs, and even on their sides and back. Stretch marks have become increasingly common due to the fact that two thirds of Americans are overweight today. This is an extremely disturbing fact being that obesity has doubled since only 1980.
