Tights (yes, I'm that exciting)

Can anyone recommend tights that my skirts wont stick to? I live in trousers but have just bought a couple of dresses and skirts in honour of the summer. However my legs are not great -pale, blotchy, scarred so I would feel lore comfortable wearing them with tights. But in the past, whenever I have worn tights, the static makes my skirts stick to them.
I realise that, by the age if almost 40, I should have figured this out for myself, but does anyone have an recommendations (or top tips)?

my only tip to conquer the static would be to put body lotion on legs before putting on tights and then put more body lotion on legs once you have tights on - I read that tip on here and it does work. Also you can spray tights and dress/slip with hairspray - I am told...

I picked it up in store after asking the ladies in lingerie about static. It was in the laundry/ fabric dye/ clothes pegs section...

ok this is it but it was half that price in JL [http://mydeco.com/p/go-stat-anti-static-spray-200ml/GB69BF68AVO6S7IGMX4TT3QH3HOXWS3I3FHKWVC6/ here]
