,Stretch marks…ugh. No one likes them and if you are a model or want to become one, this may seem like a huge setback to your goals. However, if you know about stretch marks and how to handle them, having these unsightly marks doesn’t have to be detrimental to your modeling career.
Unfortunately, there are many myths and so-called “miracle treatments” that promise to get rid of your stretch marks forever. Before you invest any time or money, it’s important to know the real deal.
You don’t have to be overweight or pregnant to get stretch marks:
This is a common misconception. The skinniest of people can still develop stretch marks and it affects both men and women, although women are more likely to suffer from it than their male counterparts.
Stretch marks occur when the skin is stretched over time. This happens not only during pregnancy (which results in stretch marks on the stomach and breasts), but also during growth spurts and even weight lifters that build up a lot of muscle will notice their new bulk can also be a common area for stretch marks.
