Stretch Marks

What are Stretch marks?

When our skin stretches or shrinks quickly, stretch marks can form. This sudden change ruptures collagen and elastin, which supports our skin. Hence, during the healing phase, stretch marks may appear.

Causes of stretch marks

Not everyone will develop these narrow band scars. Some factors can cause more stretch marks to be developed.

  1. Genetics: people with a family history of stretch marks may have a higher risk of developing them.
  2. Hormones: Fluctuating hormone levels are one of the possible factors of stretch marks. The hormone, Cortisol, can play an especially major role. High cortisol levels can weaken elastic fibres of the skin, which then causes more stretch marks. 
  3. An abrupt increase of volume of our body: An abrupt increase in body weight can cause more stretch marks to be formed. Stretch marks can be prevented if the weight is gradually increased.
  4. Dehydration of the skin.
  5. Lacking minerals and vitamins.
