Post Best way to cover stretch marks?

Hi everyone!

I will be having my BA on the 30th September and prepping up to prevent stretch marks (i am prone to them) by slathering on generous amounts of Palmers Cocoa Butter (for pregnant women!) and bio oil on my breasts...

however.. if these pesky things do crop up, what are some tricks u girls use to cover them up?

I heard Dermablend is quite good, however does it stain clothing? Do any of you girls use this product?

Thanks in advance! xx

While my stretch marks are there, they are not noticeable to really ever have to cover up. Even in a bikini, you'd have to be looking very closely. So I don't worry about it. They never show up in pictures etc.

Now the stretch marks on my thighs/hip/butt need so much cover up haha, but I don't worry about it.. They are there, I can't change it.

I had the same problem; skin prone to stretchmarks and scarring - but after about a month the bright red stretchmarks faded, and now they're not to noticable. Cocoa butter and oils really helped out a lot - and you're already doing that. I put Mederma on mine religiously for about 6 weeks afterwards.

The best thing to hide them I find, is sunless tanner. It has darker pigments in it that will sort of temporarly dye the light/whitesh stretch marks. Makes them a lot less noticable, essp. if you have a tan (becasue stretch marks don't tan).

Best of luck! Take care! XOXO!
