    they will be really red and angry after uv had LO but they fade to silvery grey not long afterwards :think:

    use bio oil after uv had a bath to keep moisture in the skin, theyre just 1 of those things that comes with bein preggas im afraid :roll:

    i saw on that how to look good with gok wan thing where they had concealer to hide stretchmarks but it was really fussy with a brush and powders and stuff :shock:
