Stretch marks are discolored striations that may appear on the abdomen, thighs, buttocks, chest or upper arms. When someone gains weight rapidly, the dermis layer of skin is stretched until it cracks, leaving fine scars on the skin’s surface.
Stretch marks can form as a result of pregnancy, puberty, bodybuilding or simply overeating. Most stretch marks will fade over time. Meanwhile, you can try the following home remedies to reduce their unsightly appearance.
