I'm proud of my bod--but not my stretch marks

 
I’m only 13. I’m proud of my body, but I’ve been noticing I’m getting stretch marks on my breasts and thighs. Is that normal?

 

 

Good for you for loving your bod, babe! It’s important to be proud of the body that gives you so much, from PRs at swim meets to smooth moves on the dance floor and so, so much more.

 

As your body grows and takes on a more mature shape, though, your skin stretches to cover everything underneath. That’s what leads to stretch marks. So, as your breasts develop and you hone those moves on the court, it’s completely natural to see changes all over your bod, including in your skin. Take care of it, exfoliating in the shower to clean off dead skin and moisturizing afterward to make sure it’s not dry, and your skin will be in tip-top shape.
