Q: “Stretch marks are suddenly forming on my hips and thighs. What’s happening and what can I do to get rid of them?” – Wan Aishah, Digital Consultant

A: Aside from pregnancy, stretch marks may appear due to excessive weight gain. When this happens, the skin is stretched and the elastic fibres within breaks. While it may be hard to get rid of them completely, you can lessen the appearance and plump up skin’s surface with creams containing nourishing and moisturising ingredients such as vitamin A, aloe vera extract and shea butter.
