    basically i just wanna know if gettin a spray tan or whatever can help to disguise scars/stretch marks. after gettin a really bad case of eczema over my stomach legs and arms i had to use a steroid cream and because of this most of the skin on my arms, stomach and legs got thin and given me stretch marks. i am really self conscious of them. someone has told me that tanning does help. i have brown skin btw cuz i am indian... i do use bio oil and rescue oil mixed with almond oil atleast once a day and properly massage it in... x

    i lost weight and ended up with loads strech marks and bit saggy skin i used bio oil twice a day, i exfoliated daily and also used coco butter twice a day obv exfoliated first. i use a sunbed and i cant see them nomore but the daily regime i did fadded them loads i guess it depends if they redy kind of colour or turned silvery white. but if you just want to hide them then yes fake tan but its really high maintence when it starts to fade after a week or so and goes patchy. my friend gets a spray tan once a week it costs her £50 a month

    sunbeds are working for me, I also have a similar routine to rachel-69. Cocoa butter & bio oil twice a day.

    Seriously though, I know sunbeds are bad, but as someone who was severely depressed due to my stretchmarks (all over my stomach and hips, some on thighs.) and not even obese, it has boosted my confidence quite a bit! I plan to keep going weekly untill they fade completely.

    i think a spray tan should work fine

    does anyone know how to get rid of stretch marks that have healed and HAVE LEFT INDENTATIONS IN THE SKIN? THOSE are annoying. they look like cellulite.
