Loving and accepting our body is the truest form of confidence.
That being said, there’s nothing wrong with taking care of yourself. Most of us have stretch marks and a lot of the time it truly comes to genetics, which is a factor we have no control over. I have had stretch marks since I was 13 years old on both sides of my butt. I've never hated my stretch marks because they were apart of who I was and as I grew older I quickly realized it's impossible to find someone with stretch mark free skin.
That being said, there’s nothing wrong in wanting to diminish the appearance/ prevent stretch marks. I have finally found a 3 step routine that has helped improve the appearance of my stretch marks significantly.
