Ladies left with stretch marks

Summer time is coming and I wanted to start tanning. Will this make my stretch marks look worse? They're finally looking better with the Trilastin that I've been using but I don't want to go backwards. I was thinking of putting sun screen on them. And I know this is gross but definitely a fact of motherhood, my belly got huge and I'm left with some extra skin, will it look funny when I tan my belly? It's not so bad anymore but I'm just so insecure now.

  • oh yeah, and you have to make sure you dont care what other people think, care about how frickin hot it is and how comfy that bikini feels at the beach/ pool or whatever, rather than pants and a t-shirt!

  • Yes, don't care. I wish I could do that. But I put loation with silicone in it after I tan and mine are looking better not great but better. I have to try the not caring thing.
