If you've spent the summer season having lots of fun outdoors you may have picked up quite a fine sun-kissed complexion. If you happen to suffer from stretchmarks, you may have noticed something else - they don't tan! Sorry ladies, but these scar-like marks don't absorb pigments the way that healthy skin does.
So what's a girl to do, you ask?
The good news is that there are a few tricks you can use to reduce the appearance of these blemishes on your glowing summer skin.
1. Stretchmarks don't change color in the sun - but they do absorb pigments provided by self tanners. If you want to camouflage your marks, try applying a product such as Bliss A Tan For All Seasons. Not only will this superior self tanner help you hide these lines, but it will do the same for cellulite, too!
2. Practice regular body skincare in affected areas by applying specialized creams and lotions to reduce the appearance of stretchmarks. Products like Elemis Body Sculpting Firming Cream will work to feed your skin and minimize unsightly markings.
Don't let stretchmarks stop you from enjoying the sun all summer long. Instead, use these simple tricks to make you feel like the beautiful goddess you are.
