I haven't self-harmed for a year and a half now, but I have a lot of scars on my upper arm, differing in size, colour etc. there's a few that are raised but a lot of white, flat marks too.
I am a bridesmaid/MOH very soon and it is a sleeveless dress, nobody knows about my past self-harming, I never told anyone and intend it to stay that way, plus it wouldn't be the time or place. I've bought a shawl to cover myself but I won't be able to wear it during the ceremony itself. I have bought some make up that is supposed to be good for scars but, I'm useless at all of that so my hopes aren't too high there.
I do use bio oil etc, I know that scars are scars, they stay with you but, has anyone had any similar situations and how did you deal with it? Was makeup an effective solution or am I going to end up doing a runner for a wedding that isn't even mine!
Any advice/tips/cover up ideas would be helpful.
