How Do I Get Rid Of Stretch Marks?

Dear BeingGirl Experts,

I have stretch marks. How do I get rid of them?



Dear Cynthia,

Stretch marks aren't uncommon during puberty as you are growing rapidly. The lines start out as purple or reddish and eventually fade to a silvery color. The texture of the lines feels different than the rest of the skin in the area.

There really isn't anything you can do to make stretch marks go away. There are creams and products that say they can prevent or repair stretch marks, I do not know of any that work for sure. Remember the lines will fade to a silvery color.

If stretch marks really bother you, talk to a dermatologist (skin doctor). He/she may be able to help.

Hope this is helpful,

Your BeingGirl Experts
