Dirty little secret...

Ok so everyone was asking what I used on my scars from surgery thanks to my lovely photos from yesterday. Did I use a miracle cream? Well I wish there was such thing but apparently there's not. I will be honest in saying that I didn't really use anything in particular religiously. Every once in a while I would rub a little Vitamin E oil on them and I always use lotion on my whole body after I shower. I recently purchased some Mederma which I probably used for one week and then stopped. I get lazy with my routine for stuff like that.

So now for the dirty little secret.....




ahhhh!!!! Yes, in a tanning bed. I don't know how many of your do this. I used to tan every year and then last year I decided I was too afraid of skin cancer to do it anymore and I basically became Casper-ella, the friendly freakin ghost girl. I decided about a month ago that I would start tanning again but not as often as I have in the past. I just want a little base tan and then I will maintain that by going a couple times per month. I have only tanned maybe 5 times in the last month and already my scars are almost unnoticeable. So yeah, you wanted to know what kind of magic I was using....there it is....a tan!

A little NSV or is it? I don't know. The hubby has been giving me all kinds of compliments lately about how great I have been looking. He has said in the last week and I quote:

"Well, your butt is getting smaller, more toned."
"I think you look better now than you ever have before"
"You are getting so small."

YAY! When the husband truly notices and isn't just saying so to make you feel good, that is great! I think this is the first time he has ever really stopped and looked at me hard and realized, well, holy shit, she really is changing!


  1. As the saying goes "Tan fat always looks better than pale fat" :) But seriously, I have heard that tanning can actually make the scars darker? Not sure if there's any truth to that. But hey, if it makes you feel good, no biggie, right?

  2. Well slap my ass and call me happy - apparently I share your secret. I have a freaking tanning bed DOWNSTAIRS in my workout room! I only use it about once a week or sometimes once a it though.

  3. I am doing a bit of indoor tanning myself in prep for my mexico trip on Saturday and sweetheart my tummy doesnt look half as HOT as yours! After two babies and a million yo-yo looks BAD! I need a tuck but too afraid of the pain!

  4. It's definitely working. I don't do tanning beds...I use the evil sun instead. Skin cancer either way. LOL.

  5. I just cant do it. I cant go tanning anymore. I used to go when I was in HS, and then a little about 4 years ago...but I spend so much time in the sun during the summer...I feel like I am already pressing my cancer luck button.


Thanks for the comment! Appreciate it!
