Mederma and extra sunscreen when going outside! For covering I would suggest a thick concealer and powder foundation on top. That way it gives it a more natural look.

I bought this special scar oil and its called "bio-oil" it works fantastically at reducing my scars it's faded them to almost invisibility and now i can work in a t-shirt without costumers staring at my arms.

I'm so proud that you've stopped cutting, even if it was for a little while. Please remember you're important and your body is important. You can put Mederma on it since that's especially made for scars, or for a more natural alternative you can put on coco butter. Be consistant in applying these! And when you're home or alone, make sure your scars get air and can breathe. Drink a lot of water and take care of yourself in all so that your scars heal faster. In the mean time, wear bracelets or long sleeves or make-up on it. Goodluck, you wonderful person you!

If you need to cover them immediately there's this special makeup for hiding tattoos. I tried a sample on the huge scars on my arm and it works wonders. I forget what it's called, though.

It depends on how big and how deep the scars are. If like mine they are deep and raised then you can't really cover them unless you cover yourself in thick medical make-up. Just have to look after you skin and use something like bio-oil ( but this can take years to show any effects so be patient) and if you are still cutting make sure what your using is clean, look after wounds and no picking at them. This may help with future scaring. The other is to stop cutting yourself by useing the dislike you have for your now permanent scars. But only you can make that decision.

Fantastic that you have found a way of getting out of cutting,I know this was not something you wanted to do in the first place, but good on you!I dont know where you live as there are people from a few different countries here but if you can get a hold of a bottle of Bio oil and rub in on every day,it will fade them,but you do need to make sure you use it every day. It will take some time,but it will help.Also used for all type of marks blemishes on your face and body,its good stuff! Meanwhile use some make up to cover it up for now as well.May be though use the bio oil of a night when your ready for bed so you don't then need to cover the oil with make up and get you into a routine every night.If you were rich! lol you could have Lazar treatment to remove then.I wish you luck!,not just with the scares but your life ahead.

Well done for stopping the cutting you're now a step closer to being completely healed! :) There's something you can get called Bio Oil. Depending on where you are in the world I'm sure it wont be too difficult to get. I had scars on my shoulders and within a month they faded. It also works great for stretch mark. As well as making your skin nice and smooth :) Good luck!
