They are most common during pregnancy and the teen years, when growth spurts and increased levels of steroid hormones cause significant changes throughout the body. Stretch marks can also be brought on by obesity and weight lifting. also Genetic factors -- including inherited defects of connective tissues.

 PREVENTION
"Avoiding rapid weight gain or loss is a good start. For those who are pregnant or experiencing the hormone changes of the teen years, it is crucial to moisturize, "Skin becomes more pliant, more plasticized and better able to stretch when it's well hydrated."

HOW TO GET RIDE OF IT
The appearance of stretch marks depends on the color of your skin; they can start out pink, reddish brown, brown, or dark brown, and fade over time to a more silvery color. Once stretch marks have appeared, it's essential to treat them as early as possible. Research has focused exclusively on the early stages of stretch marks, when they are still red or purple and most readily respond to treatment, Baumann explains

RECOMMENDATION
Apply moisturizing three or four times a day with products that contain cocoa butter or shea butter as a prime ingredient. Massage the moisturizer deep into Bosom s, belly, hips, and buttocks.

Anything from weight gain to weight loss can cause that, my brother wanted to build muscle so he started working out, and as the muscle started like showing his skin started to stretch to accomodate the muscles and he started having stretch marks like on his shoulders.

a bit wrong. is nt about weight loss. stretch marks appear wen ur skin stretches i.e wen ur bcomin bigger or mo fat. also dey very often appear wen ur a teenager cuz teenagers grow very fast n skin dsnt hav tym 2stretch normally. beside if ur skin is in gud condition n ur takin care of it + ur fit den u wil neva hav stretch marks afta child birth

I think they are caused when you gain or loose size in one area too much too fast.  Skin is kinda like a head band...it has a certain amount of elasticity to it but when you stretch it too far too fast and it has to hold this new stretched out position, it cant shrink back to its original size so that's why you get the marks.  Taking care of your skin helps it to have better elasticity so you can avoid getting stretch marks, even after pregnancy which I guess is the most extreme case of skin stretching in people.

Most of the stretch mark in females are caused by bleaching that is my on believe, the issue of pregnancy is a recent discovery. so i would advice you watch the kind of cream you use.

stretch marks is caused by lack of collagen and elastic fibres responsible for tightness of hte skin. it is a form of tearing of the skin
the elasticity of the skin varies from hormonal to genetics and is therefore different for diverse individuals.

Most creams would just blend it in with your skin color and possibly stop from getting more but not really cure the 1's you already got, you can try bio oil or cocoa butter.

Read highlighted. Rapid weightloss can also cause stretchmarks, i can't get into it, if u still aint clear check it with a dermatologist.
