Stretch marks occur when the skin is asked to expand beyond its elastic abilities. This most often occurs when one gains weight too quickly or during a pregnancy when a woman's abdomen and breasts grow larger in a short period of time. The skin tries to stretch and adapt during these times, but when it cannot expand, connective tissues are formed that look like bands of scars across the skin. These scar-like bands are stretch marks and few people find them pretty.
In fact, stretch marks can be a source of embarrassment to many people - diminishing their self-esteem. People with stretch marks might not going swimming or take a stroll on the beach because it means wearing clothes that would reveal the marks on their skin.
But there is no reason why your stretch marks should get you down. There are natural ways to eliminate stretch marks or prevent them from occurring in the first place. Through good nutrition and stress relief, along with not taking certain medications, you can fade stretch marks and feel good about looking in the mirror again.
There are many foods that can help you: Olive Oil (The Moisturizer Of The Ancient Greeks), Vitamin E Oil (Protects Skin Cells With Antioxidants), Castor Oil (A Potent Skin Remedy), Ground Coffee, (The Little Known Exfoliator), Peanut butter, (Maintain Normal Skin Function In A Jif) and Aloe Vera, (The Beauty Secret Of Cleopatra) are just some of the foods and natural products that can make a difference in your life.
If you gained weight quickly and then lost it again, you may have stretch marks you want to get rid of.
