Stretch mark madness

I'm 13, and I have some stretch marks on my boobs. But I'm also very skinny for my age. Is that normal?


Babe, the stretch marks you’re seeing are totally normal. Think about it: Why do we call these lines “stretch marks”? It’s because you get them when your skin stretches. As your breasts develop and grow larger, girls start seeing stretch marks on their boobs (and around their hips and bums) because the skin itself has to stretch to cover the breast tissue.


Not a fan of the way they look? Using a loofah or washcloth in the shower to exfoliate, and following it up with lotion or moisturizer once ya drive off will help them become less noticeable over time.
