Okay, I got annoyed at my mum, and I cut... thing is, I don't want anyone to find out... How do I cover it up? I don't know what to do. I want it, so they are NOT noticeable. I won't even mind if they look like scars... just no where near cuts... Please help

Hey there Zara!

Have you tried any lotion, etc with Cocoa butter in it? Using that helps to fade cuts/scars a little faster then just letting time do its thing. Although it might be better if you try to find alternatives to cutting so you wouldn't have to worry about this at all. Hope I've helped some!

I've had the same problem. What I usually do is cover up with some foundation, liquid usually worked the best, or wear gloves that go to the elbows, although like wheels4life said, alternatives may be best but I know how that can sound. Sometimes alternative just isn't an option at the time. If you need anyone to talk to I'm here! Hope this helps!

Zara! (My twinzie. )

I'm sorry to hear this happened. I've never used cocoa butter lotion, but I think it's a good suggestion. It seems to have worked well for other people. Personally, I always use bio oil, and that can be useful also.

And hang in there, okay? I'm here if you need someone to talk to. Stay strong.

[Edited] Cover it up with a few braceletts. [Edited] What I use to do is use cover up. It has to be a good kind of make-up to really cover it up. I suggest Mary Kay's liquid and powder cover up. It makes it almost look invisible.
