I devoloped some real bad stretch marks while i was pregant. i just delivered and would like to know what would be the best thing to do concerning tanning. is it ok for me to go to a sun bed and get in a good tan or just the normal tanning in the sun, or should i wait a while. will going in the sun make it worse??
Sun/sunbed will not make the stretch marks worse. Sun/sunbed cause ageing of the skin and promotes the development of skin cancer. There is no such thing as a good tan whether in the sun or on a sunbed. Stretch marks tend to improve with time.
