Why do stretch marks occur? -------------- The skin though quite elastic it's elasticity has limits - its breakable. Whenever skin is stretched beyond its elasticity, there are breaks in fibers leading to stretch marks. Hormonal changes in pregnancy play a role. Also there is the genetic factor, if your mother had it, you are more likely to get it during pregnancy. How to avoid stretch marks? -------------- Though there is not much you can do to change your genes and the hormonal changes in pregnancy, you can certainly keep your skin moisturized to keep it elastic. Dry skin looses its normal elasticity and is more liable to break resulting in stretch marks. There are commercial stretch marks creams and oils but I'm not certain about their efficacy and authenticity of their advertisement. How to treat stretch marks once you get them? -------------- Stretch marks are permanent though they can fade overtime. There are commercial solutions to that like the much talked about Bio Oil and few others but I'm not sure how helpful those are going to be.
