Stretch marks are a common skin complaint, often developing when the skin has shrunk or stretched quickly. They can look like streaks across the skin and are often silver, purple, pink, red, brown or black in colour.
So what causes stretch marks? These lines or streaks across the skin are often the result of the tearing of the dermis during periods of growth such as puberty, rapid weight gain or loss, pregnancy or taking certain medications can also impact the appearance of stretch marks. They can also be down to genetics, so if stretch marks run in the family you may be more susceptible.
