Stretch marks can appear literally… anywhere.
On your butt, your thighs, your arms, everywhere! But here’s the thing though, they’re completely normal and just about everyone has them.
According to Bustle, about 80 per cent of women in America have stretch marks and while we encourage you to do whatever it is you need to do to feel good about yourself and your body, understand this: there is no need to remove your stretch marks or feel ashamed of them.
Need even more confidence? Just check out the response real men have left on this Reddit thread asking them on their thoughts on stretch marks.
Darker Inner Thighs
If you’ve go thick thighs that rub on against each other, you’ll likely notice that you experience chafing down there when the weather is so hot and you’re sweating.
Chafing can often lead to skin discolouration and that’s completely normal! Just make sure you scrub once in a while to get rid of dead skin cells that can build up in the area and darken skin further.
Pretty much anyone who’s got some percentage of fat has cellulite. It’s a fact of life ladies, trust us!
Contrary to popular belief, cellulite isn’t excess fat. It’s just the connective fibres between your skin and muscle that create the orange peel-look. Once again, if you’re looking for some confidence, here are some real men and their thoughts on cellulite.
Another common body hang up is darkened arm pits. Whenever you shave or wax your arm pits, the hair that grows from underneath reflects a darker tone than what you’re used to, giving you darker looking pits.
No Thigh Gap
The lack of a thigh gap doesn’t mean that you’re fat at all.
Thigh gaps are generally a genetic. From wide set hips to the angle in which your legs grow, a thigh gap is generally a genetic trait so don’t fret if you don’t have one!
