Stretch marks appear when your body starts to grow at a much faster rate than your skin, which makes it hard for the skin to keep up. The elastic fibers that are under your skin’s surface break hence the stretch marks. The two most common areas that get stretch marks during pregnancy are the breasts and belly. They can also be seen at the upper arms, buttocks and thighs. The marks start off as purple or reddish marks and gradually fade after pregnancy to gray or white.
It is estimated that about 90% of women globally get stretch marks after the 6th or 7th month. Genetics also play a role in determining whether you will have stretch marks or not. Therefore, if your mother had stretch marks when pregnant, there is high likelihood that you will also get them.
The color of the stretch marks also depends on an individual’s skin complexion. If you have lighter skin, your stretch marks are more likely to be pinkish. Women with darker skin get lighter stretch marks, lighter than their skin tone.
The rate at which your pregnancy is growing also determines whether you will get stretch marks or not. There is, however, no proven ways of treating stretch marks or stopping them from appearing. Luckily, their color fades to a tone that is less noticeable. There are some things you can do to ensure that they are less noticeable even in your last trimester. The key is starting early enough.
