Stretch marks can affect anyone, regardless of gender, age or skin type. While pregnancy is a common cause of stretch marks for women, men are also prone to stretch marks caused by growth spurts during puberty, sudden weight gain or a quick increase in muscle mass during exercise.
Maybe your stretch marks don’t bother you or you don’t care about them, but you probably don’t want to let them tell your story. While your stretch marks will most likely never completely disappear, they usually fade with time, especially when properly cared for. The sooner you start caring for your stretch marks, the better the results.
