  • In my experience, tanning has never darkened my stretch marks. I think they make them blend in a little more. Of course, they're still noticeable, but I feel a lot more comfortable with my body when it's tanned.

    It probably depends on the person though. Everyone's body is different. Unfortunately.

  • they do make them less notciable plus your lotioning your body before tanning , so if your tanning daily your getting moisture into your skin and stretch marks daily which really helps.

  • Yeah they blend in really well. About a month of tanning 3 days a week you couldn't tell I was covered in stretch marks on my butt. Use a good after tanning lotion though to keep it moisturized.
