TRIGGER:// Scars
 
So in Nov I put my left leg through a glass door after my dad slammed it in my face during an argument. I ended up at A&E. It's scarred pretty badly and I am going to have scars there for the rest of my life.

I hate them! I hate my legs being on show, I am dreading when my sister gets married that they are going to be on show. At the moment they are a reddy purple colour.

Any tips of how I can reduce them? And make them fade a little bit

Bio oil and cocoa butter can both help reduce scarring.

^ Those two are what I'd recommend too. There are all sorts of scar reduction creams and patches though.

There's skin makeup you could use as well.

You could also wear tights to cover your legs for the wedding. Not necessarily skin coloured, you could wear a funky pair and make it part of your outfit.

I've tried vaseline which is what the nurse who stitched me up said to use. It has faded a little tiny bit but not enough that it won't be on show. I do have some heavy duty stage foundation here, I am wondering if that will be enough to cover them up.
