Stretch marks are thought to be due to rapid skin expansion, “such as from weight gain during pregnancy or puberty, and breaks in connective tissue and collagen found deep underneath the skin,” says Rachel Nazarian, MD, a board-certified dermatologist and assistant clinical professor at Mount Sinai Hospital in New York. Stretch marks aren’t inevitable, but according to Dr. Nazarian, some people are genetically predisposed to them. A good way to help minimize your chances of getting stretch marks is to make sure to moisturize skin liberally, especially during times of pregnancy and rapid weight gain or loss. Skin thats well hydrated is more supple and better able to withstand the forces of stretch.
