    I just shaved my arms like models do, and errrr, not only do I look like a 5 year old boy all my old self harm scars are extremely visible :culpability:

    What do I do? Will boots sell something to help? Do I have to wear long sleeves for the rest of the summer, fuckkkkkkkkk :(

    Go to your pharmacist and ask what they recommend in the way of concealer, (such as Thin Lizzy) - it's stuff that the movie stars use to cover up tattoos - good luck!

    I've googled one of the store websites. Does bio-oil work like it says it does?

    Hache your arm hair will grow back - give it four or five weeks and they will be exactly the same as they were. Definitely in time for summer.

    Bio-oil is okay for scars but it isn't going to make them disappear and certainly not as fast as your hair will grow back.

    Live and learn :hug:

    The hairless part is growing on me, I think it's ok, it's the scars that suck :( I wish they weren't visible

    It'll probably grow back faster and much longer now :/ I know, my sister did this too.
