How to Cover Stretch Marks

How to Hide Spider Veins, Stretch Marks, and More This Bikini Season

Don't let bruises, blisters, blue veins, and stretch marks keep you from baring your legs this Summer. You can don the shortest shorts, high-cut bikinis, and miniskirts with just a little bit of extra coverage (that is, if you choose, of course.) Read on to discover three ways to hide your tiny imperfections during the warmer months.

Problem: Stretch Marks
Solution: Self-Tanner
Giving yourself an allover bronze this Summer will distract from an uneven skin tone. To camouflage stretch marks, strategically apply a self-tanner like Sally Hansen Airbrush Legs ($14) with a Q-tip on lighter marks.

Problem: Bruises
Solution: Body Cover-Up
Somehow, Summer seems to lend itself to more unidentified bumps and bruises. For excellent coverage, turn to body makeup, such as Dermablend Leg and Body Cover SPF 15 ($31). This professional-grade product can even mask tattoos. Just apply over dark spots and top with the setting powder ($26) for all-day coverage.

Problem: Spider Veins
Solution: Yellow Concealer
Minimize the appearance of blue-green lines caused by varicose and spider veins by using a yellow or orange waterproof concealer like Maybelline Cover Stick Corrector ($5). Then apply a body foundation over the top to cover the problem spots. You can also help minimize the appearance of veins prior to slipping in a bikini by wearing support stockings on the airplane before your next vacation.
