When Men suffer from stretch marks problem?
Men suffer from the problem when they get enough fat (stomach and arms are the most affected areas). In order to avoid stretch marks the skin should be well hydrated. Since dry skin damages their natural elasticity, and when there is a need to stretch the skin, there is greater ease in the disruption of elastic fibers and the consequent appearance of stretch marks.
Women suffer more than men:
Yeah, women are the most affected with stretch marks than men. This is due to the fact that a woman has two hormones – estrogen and progesterone – which are primarily responsible for the rupture of elastic fibers in the skin. Women bears pregnancy and gaining weight is indispensable in such situation.

What causes Stretch Marks?
Gaining and losing weight, stretch marks usually appear in more people who always win and lose weight which is known as accordion effect. This is because, with increasing weight, the epidermal cells do not have time to double the proportion that new fat cells require. Thus, the striations appear in regions where the weight gain is larger, as in the butt, belly, arms, thighs and breasts.
Phase of growth spurt, when rapid growth occurs during puberty and adolescence, the body needs time to adapt to the growth of organs, and when this occurs, the streak appears. So many teens, even skinny, have stretch marks due to this body change
Muscles jet: when the muscles appear very quickly, others end up stretching the skin and breaking down their fibers. The result of this is of course, ‘Stretch Marks’! So, walk away from taking food supplements on your own. If you want to increase muscle, it is best to double check the physical trainer and nutritionist.

Dry skin: the abuse of the sun can contribute to the appearance of stretch marks. The sun makes the fibers more fragile and undermines their properties. The very hot baths that remove the protective layer of skin and lack of moisture also facilitate the appearance of stretch marks.
Always use moisturizing oils and moisturizing properties (those based on urea, grape seed oil and almond are the ones that have moisturizing power) after bathing because this is the right time when the skin absorbs more easily and the product is the first path to avoid them. Hot baths and sun without sunscreen are other reason for this problem. Always remember from the first sign of streaks, schedule an appointment with your dermatologist. The sooner you start taking care of the problem, faster and easier for you to wave goodbye to the ugly stretch marks on your skin.
