(HealthDay News) -- Stretch marks aren't confined to pregnant women. Youngsters in puberty also may develop these lines on the body due to rapid growth.
Skin is typically quite elastic, the Nemours Foundation points out, but when it overstretched, small scars known as stretch marks may develop.
Nemours suggests how to make stretch marks less noticeable:
- Use a sunless self-tanner.
- Apply body makeup that is the same tint as your skin.
- Wear board shorts or rash guards to help hide stretch marks on the buttocks, upper thighs and chest.
