How to Get Rid of Stretch Marks: Your Definitive Guide



Before we start telling you how to get rid of stretch marks, let it be known that we always applaud A-listers like Chrissy Teigen who flaunt their tiger stripes with pride. And for some people, those silver lines don't bother them. But for others who find it more difficult to embrace them on the same level (mainly because it can be hard for us non–Sports Illustrated model types), we have some good news: We've got the ultimate guide on how to get rid of stretch marks while looking after your skin.

Whether they're silvery-white threads here and there or sprawling red and purple vines, either can knock self-confidence. We'll be covering not only what causes them (no, it's not just pregnancy) but also what you can do to stop more from turning up, as well as helping to fade those that you'd like to stop magically appearing on your skin. Keep scrolling for our guide on how to get rid of stretch marks.
