Are stretch marks genetic?
The cause of stretch marks is stretching of the skin. Their severity is affected by several factors, including your genetics and the degree of stress on the skin.
Can anything prevent stretch marks?
Researchers have discovered that many remedies said to prevent stretch marks don’t actually work. In studies, neither almond oil, cocoa butter, olive oil, nor vitamin E prevented stretch marks.

Unfortunately, stretch marks are permanent scars. But while they never entirely heal, the marks will become lighter, thinner, and less visible over time.
