Stretch marks occur when the skin is pulled by stretching or quick growth. Starting out, these marks can appear pink, reddish brown, or dark brown, then fade to a silvery color over time. Stretch marks are often associated with pregnancy, but can also be a concern for anyone experiencing a growth spurt or weight gain. Fortunately, there are numerous products available to help treat and prevent these marks.
