Unhappy Concealer doesn't cover my cuts!!!

I know I've posted heaps in this section, and I'm really sorry, but I keep having so many problems. Concealer cant hide my cuts/scars!! They are too deep!!

My mum nearly saw them today and my brother has asked about what they were in front of my dad, but I managed to survive that with lies. Please help!!

Also, in Australia, I literally can't wear long sleeves! It's too hot!! Sorry again...

Concealer isn’t made for covering up deep scars, it’s made for your face/neck...

The only thing that can be suggested is long sleeve things, unless you fork out for body paint for your arms (skin shades can cost $$$ since it would be used on a daily basis and would also seem weird to family)

As always, I would greatly recommend NOT using makeup to cover cuts that haven’t scarred over - that screams “infection” to me.

If it’s really impossible to do either of the above, I would find the most visible ones and cover it up with a bandage. Since they can’t see the wound, it’s easier to blag.

Some advice is to stop cutting or reduce the amount you’re doing it. Try doing something else that doesn’t bleed/scar, for instance I use the “elastic band” coping method which doesn’t scar - worst case scenario, it bruises slightly. It’s easier to cover up to parents/peers if you used a hair band which doesn’t look out of place on a girl's wrist.

I haven't cut in months. And yes, body paint is very expensive for this matter. The bandage feels risky to me, but I guess I can try long sleeves (without sweating 24/7)
Thanks.

You can get used to wearing long sleeved clothes. I live in warm humid climate and always used to wear long sleeves when I was younger so nobody would detect any scars or injuries.

I have given up hiding some time ago. I try to stop self-harming and even if I do I don't care about others knowing about.

But I know how difficult this is but I also can tell you you won't be able to hide it forever from your family unless you manage to stop it.

Great to hear you haven't self harmed in months, that's something to be proud of yeah putting makeup on them is a bad idea. Applying a lotion/serum that contains vitamin E oil should help your scars fade. Until they're less visible, you could just wear long sleeves. I know it's stressful having to hide them and come up with lies to explain them away, so this would be a good option to avoid drawing attention to them.

Yeah, I put make up on my scars. But things are going downhill again and I wish I could restrain myself. I hope I can, because a few times, Ive been on the verge of cutting. Thanks for the help.
