How did i get them?

Additional Details
I'm 5"3 and 53kg

welcome to the club baby. they won't go away, i don't know why we get them even when we aren't fat, and there is no one currently conducting a telethon or research project to fix the problem... Lotion up with cocoa butter. it helps diminish the appearance and prevent more sretch marks. and tanning will too.

I <3 sushi!
Stretch mark cream gets rid of the stretchmarks.
And also I have them too, it might be because you gained muscle too quickly or you gained or lost weight quickly so your skin stretched, also your growing and so that might be a part of it.

Get some Shea Coco Lotion for stretch marks. Use it now and it will probably help. As for the reason, you probably hit a growth spurt.

you get stretch marks from growing in puberty and ask a local dermatologist for a medicine best for you

Jana W
well its not that ur fat its where ur body is growing. The coconut oil will help you alot. keep on dancing.

Hun, I hate to break it to you, but I got stretch marks on my hips and thighs when I was 13 ... basically when I hit puberty(I wasn't fat either!)Aaaaand, sorry, but I STILL have them. I am 21 now, so after 8 years, they are very faded, but hey it's a part of life, and unfortunately, we're just a couple of those unlucky chicks who get them. There isn't really anything, short of laser surgery, that can get rid of them. You might try using those new creams though. I've seen this one at Costco that basically guarantees to fade them ... but it's like $135.

It's natural. Every one has them, even me and I am a health freak who is addicted to working out. It's where you are growing from like being a little kid, and your skin streches. I don't think you can get rid of them unless you get surgery or something.

Cassie D
Stretch marks aren't necessarily because you're fat. You're growing - it's as simple as that. When you grow very fast, your skin has to stretch.

Your best bet is to keep the skin moisturized. Be sure to drink plenty of water and apply lotion daily. Use a gentle soap in the shower and put on more moisturizer afterwards. Stretch marks do fade over time, but it can take a while.


PS - There was another question about this that I've referenced, so look there for more info.

this is normal coconut butter helps though

yea..its me
you are growing............just use cocoa butter on them and they will fade

i have really long legs and i have them on my inner and outer thighs. it's pretty much the elasticity in your skin tearing because of growing to fast or stretching your body in different ways like dancing.

Ok firstly almost EVERYONE has strech marks I have them and I keep healthy! So dont worry, your not on your own! Its not that big a deal, but if you want to try and get rid of them a little I'd say that Bio oil works really well. I have tried it on mine. But I think its less of what you actually put on your skin and more about the movemet you'll be doing on your skin when you rub it in. This seems to...relax the skin. And make them less visable.
I think mostly though you should just try to love them because they are after all a part of you! ^^

you don't get rid of them they fade.
try using cocoa butter to help them fade

I would think about consulting a dermatologist. They should be able to help you much better than anyone on Y.A.

Hey I'm 16 and I've stretch marks since I was like 10. I'm not fat either. 135. From what I've heard you get them b/c your body matures or you get taller or whatever and your skin stretches to keep up. I have them on my inner thighs and on my hips. Cocoa butter does the trick when their coming in they should be red. Or lotion w/ vitamin E. If you've had them for a year or so there's nothing you can do about it. Usually the sun helps fade them out.

MY oWnselF
cocoa butter

I'm 15 and I got them around 13/14 as well.. I'm not fat either I'm bout 5"3 and 120lbs... I think the earlier you treat them the easier they are to get rid of or at least reduce.. use coco butter oil and good luck. I know how self contious they make you feel x x

edit: if they annoy you a lot.. there is lazer surgery which will definetly remove them but is obviously quite expensive.

A LOT of people get stretch marks there. i'm 17 and i have them and i'm not fat either. i'm not really sure what causes them but most of us get them. i use cocoa butter to reduce their appearance. you can get it at any drug store and it helps a lot.


Anna B
i had them at your age too. Its not really a big deal and people tend to not care about them so long as you are not fat. Ive actually had them since like that 5th grade and now im a senior in high school. some people have told me that it is just hereditary, my boyfriends brother is a personal trainer and he says that if you just work out they go away. There is this stuff walmart with cocoa butter and vitamin E for pregnant womens stretch marks. Just go in there and ask somone who works there to find it for you. Good luck! ; )

Im 14 and i have them there too. They started off quite big but they have gone down a bit now, partly beause ive lost weigt but i think they just fade with time. i ocasionally put bio-oil on them but its not regular so i cant say for deffinate if that works. Give it a bit and they should go silver and less noticable, its all because your growing. Dont worry :)

Stretch marks don't only occur on heavy people. If you recently had a growth spurt (at 14 this is probably the case) they are normal. Cocoa butter is great for preventing, but the only lasting treatment for old stretch marks is lasers.

i heard that grapes are good.. u could mash them and just put it on top (saw that on tv.. but never really did any research online)

also, u dont always have to be fat in order to get them.. when i was hmm 14 or 15, i had this friend that was SO SKINNY! she looked like she was anorexic! and amazingly she still had stretch marks!!!!!!!!! so yea it was crazy :S

I have some too and I'm 14. I'm a dancer too and I guess they're probably just from stretching and dancing alot. My mom said you can also get them if you loose alot of weight or grow alot. My cousin is 6'4" and he grew like three inches in a year and he has strrtch marks on his back. I don't really know how to get rid of them but they'll probably go away naturally.

i have stretch marks on my outter thieghs too and im 13. i asked my mom about it and she is a nurse. she said that you have to put lotio on your legs everytime you get out of the shower. and im not fat either i do competitiive cheerleading 2 times a week 2hours a night every week of the year and im starting field hockey. she said its because you grew so fast and your skin doesnt stretch as fast as you grow. my mom said that the stretch marks will not go away completely but they will be barley noticable. i hope this helped you because i know it helped me

try coca butter lotion

They are caused by tearing of the dermis, and over time can diminish but not disappear completely. Stretch marks are the result of the rapid stretching of the skin associated with rapid growth (common in puberty) or weight gain (e.g. pregnancy). Stretch marks are generally associated with pregnancy and obesity but can also develop during rapid muscle growth from regular exercise.

Between 75% and 90% of women develop stretch marks to some degree during pregnancy. The sustained hormonal levels as a result of pregnancy usually means stretch marks may appear during the sixth or seventh month.

Only one randomised controlled study has been published which claimed to test whether oils or creams prevent the development of stretchmarks. This study found a daily application of a cream (Trofolastin) containing Centella asiatica extract, vitamin E, and collagen-elastin hydrolysates was associated with fewer stretch marks during pregnancy.[2][3] Another study, though lacking a placebo control, examined a cream (Verum) containing vitamin E, panthenol, hyaluronic acid, elastin and menthol. It was associated with fewer stretch marks during pregnancy versus no treatment.[4]

Though cocoa butter is an effective moisturizer, no research studies have shown its ability to either prevent stretchmarks, or improve their appearance once a stretchmark has already formed.

Various treatments are available for the purpose of improving the appearance of existing stretch marks, including laser treatments, dermabrasion, and prescription retinoids.[citation needed] Some cream manufacturers claim the best results are achieved on recent stretch marks; however, few studies exist to support these claims.[citation needed]

A study in the journal Dermatologic Surgery showed that radiofrequency combined with 585-nm pulsed dye laser treatment gave "good and very good" subjective improvement in stretch marks in 89.2% of 37 patients, although further studies would be required to follow up on these results. In addition, the use of a pulsed dye laser was shown to increase pigmentation in darker skinned individuals with repeated treatments.[5]

A surgical procedure for removing lower abdominal stretch marks is the tummy tuck, which removes the skin below the navel where stretch marks frequently occur.

A new modality, fractional laser resurfacing, offers a novel approach to treating striae. Using scattered pulses of light only a fraction of the scar is zapped by the laser over the course of several treatments. This creates microscopic wounds and as such is a "no downtime" procedure. The body responds to each treatment by producing new collagen and epithelium. In a 2007 clinical trial, 5-6 treatments resulted in striae improving by as much as 75 percent.[6]

its bc of the stretching and toning from dancing. i have some as well (20yrs old) danced in HS too many jump splits i assume and things like that. cocoa butter lotion!

Shea Coco Butter Formula for stretch marks

You probably got them from a growth spurt.
Put cocoa butter on them. Just go to the store and look int he lotion dept for cocoa butter. They will go away after a while.

Don't worry too much. Alot of girls get them in their teens, either on their breasts, thighs, or butt.

You might have them because you grew too fast. My brother had them on his back because he grew really fast in highschool. You can try caffeene. Yeah they like actually sell caffeene cream now lol
