How to Get Rid of Stretch Marks on Your Boobs

Stretch marks, those inevitable badges of motherhood, may not seem like an honor when you see lurid pink, purple and red striations coursing from the dcolletage of your low-cut couture. According to the American Academy of Dermatology (AAD), 90 percent of expectant women get stretch marks during the sixth and seventh months of pregnancy, not only on the breasts, but the abdomen and thighs, too. Stretch marks are tough scar types to treat, says dermatologist Eric F. Bernstein, M.D., of the University of Pennsylvania Medical School. The rapid expansion of your skin, coupled with excessive levels of the hormone cortisone released during pregnancy, weakens the skin’s elastin fibers. Breathing new life back into damaged elastin is next to impossible. Before you resort to medical treatments to make a serious dent on the troublesome areas that have made a dent on you, try less expensive ways to get rid of your stretch marks.
