The skin possessed remarkable capabilities to stretch and adapt as we need it to throughout our lives, thanks to useful proteins called collagen and elastin that it produces. However, during periods of sudden growth when our skin needs to adapt quickly, often the inner layers of skin cannot keep up with the production of these proteins at the necessary rate, causing a tear and allowing the inner layers to show through. When this occurs, it results in the appearance of stretch marks.
