Stretch marks, happen when your skin changes shape rapidly due to growth or weight gain. They aren’t a sign that anything is wrong with your health. Both men and women can get stretch marks.

Pregnancy and puberty are the two most common times in life to get stretch marks. Especially as a new mom, you might be feeling not so confident about your body anymore. You might have gained some weight, some tummy fat and some lovely zebra stripes!!. Do not worry yourself too much about that it is just a normal body change after giving birth, I mean you just brought another human being into the world, like a whole human being.

Most stretch marks fade and take on a lighter or almost translucent colouring, and become shiny. Getting rid of stretch marks in a completely natural way isn’t likely. They’re a type of scarring that rarely fades enough to become invisible. However, there are some remedies that can help minimize the appearance of stretch marks and help them to fade more quickly.
