How to reduce stretch marks? Theobroma Balm of the Gods


Stretch marks , these unwanted marks which affect nearly 80% of women, often reflect rapid changes: growth, weight fluctuations or pregnancy period.

Although natural, these marks can raise aesthetic concerns. Rather than giving in to fatalism, consider the possibility of preventing them and, if necessary, mitigating them.

What are the causes of their appearance? How can we prevent them? And once they appear, how can these marks be reduced? Discover our detailed explanations.

1. Types of Stretch Marks and Causes:

Stretch marks come in two distinct categories: those that signal a health problem, such as Cushing's syndrome, and classic stretch marks that result from hormonal fluctuations and rapid stretching of the epidermis.

a. Cushing's syndrome

Cushing's syndrome is characterized by an excess of corticosteroids in the body, resulting from an overproduction of the hormone cortisol, commonly known as the stress hormone. Stretch marks linked to this syndrome appear as large, red and vertical marks, appearing mainly on the abdomen, the roots of the thighs, the arms and the breasts.

b. Classic stretch marks

Classic stretch marks , finer and more discreet, are generally not linked to health problems, but rather to hormonal fluctuations . They commonly appear during puberty , in response to sudden changes in weight or during pregnancy . During the first pregnancy, between 50 and 70% of women observe the appearance of stretch marks, mainly due to hormones and influenced by genetic factors.

These marks are often the result of excessive, rapid and sudden stretching of the skin, leading to loss of collagen and breakdown of the skin's elastic fibers . They are mainly located on the breasts, hips, stomach, arms and thighs.

Stretch marks, whether red or purple, generally indicate recency, while those white or silver in color indicate more seniority.
