I took a golf class for school and now I have the most ridiculous tan lines! The farmer’s tan is the worst, but my chest is three different shades. I have bridal portraits on the 25th of this month… Any ideas how to even things out? If I were to go to a tanning bed, would it just exaggerate the problem? Thanks!

I have them from running outside- mine aren’t too bright but I did use a tanning bed to even them out- I went 3x. It did help a lot. That said, I put sunscreen on the parts that were already tanned, so that the un-sunscreened part would get darker. I daresay it looks better now, not perfect, but better.

@jouissance: Thanks! I had thought about doing the same but wasn’t sure how it would work out, but at this point, I’ll try anything!

You might also consider enlisting the help of a friend or your FI and using a self-tanner to even it out. I’ve been using L’Oreal Sublime gel on my legs this summer and have also used it to cover up some swimsuit tan lines that conflicted wtih various necklines. Follow the directions carefully and know that it’s best on the first or second day. When it starts wearing off it may fade unevenly, which requires a good scrubbing with a rough washcloth to take off that first layer of skin and starting over. On the plus side, the color is realistic and long-lasting. I’d have a helper so that you could apply only to the areas that need to be evened out. Good luck!

@WhiteWedding: I understand you aren’t sunburned but instead, tanned. Still, aloe vera will help speed the cooling and regeneration of new skin cells, helping things to even out that way, too.

@Cornflakegirl: Never would have thought of that!!
