Depending were they are you can wear a ton of bracelets to hide them and it won't be suspicious at all. Or you can try cover up it won't completely hide them but they won't be as noticeable. arm warmers(there fashionable and they hide scars really well) Long sleeves but it is still pretty hot out. That is all I can think of right now


We may shine, we may shatter,
We may be picking up the pieces here on after,
We are fragile, we are human,
We are shaped by the light we let through us,
We break fast, cause we are glass.
Cause we are glass.

Bracelets, makeup, you can try to get a scar remover - if you wanted to, and long sleeves.

Yup, what everyone else said, but just don't try and put makeup on any slightly 'new' cut because it will effect the healing process, and I must say, it stings quite a bit


People say I'm happy, and I'm good at what I do, but what people never realize is that I'm a damn good actress too...

I would also add, by using a green cover stick under, you neutralize the redness, and with a good concealor and foundation applied (powder to help it stick longer) it can be hard to see. Like the other say, various accessories also help and also just manovering so your arm can't be seen helps
