Stretch marks are indented streaks of discolored skin that appear due to the stretching of the skin. For some pregnant women, stretch marks are unavoidable. You can try to prevent them by drinking plenty of water and exercising regularly. Water improves skin elasticity, so it is less prone to stretching. Healthy eating habits can also help ensure that you put on the right weight at a gradual, healthy pace to avoid stretch marks.
