An airbrush tan make help that.  I’d aviod the fake bake.  I heard on the radio this morning that it’s one of the top three cancer causers

I’ve got the same problem. I’m thinking of using self-tanner or else crossing my fingers and hoping it fades.

Oh I get tan lines all the time and the best thing that works for me is Jergen’s Natural Glow lotion. Its like $8 at walmart or target and it doesn’t make anyone I know turn orange or have that weird yellow palm look. Its also much more mild and so it takes about two weeks to get a good result. But the beauty of it is you can use it all over and it can become part of your beauty routinue everyday without a huge cancer scare. Unfortunately most things give you cancer these days but I would avoid tan beds at all costs right now till they fix the kinks more.

Self tanner should help (just test it out ahead of time, as it is easy to mess up if you are new at it, and you don’t want to look streaky.) If you have hired a makeup artist that does airbrushing, she should be able to even you out a little on the day of the wedding.

I have the exact same problem. I look like I am two different races, that is how dark I get. So my arms are darker then the rest of my body, lol, and I too am wearing a strapless dress.

@Missboulevard – I was thinking about trying the Jergens. I think I may picks so up now. Hopefully I don’t breakout though.

I think a spray tan might cure that pretty quickly — but you can’t shower for a day so just make sure you get it done early enough!

I agree with all the above advice. I am lucky – I am not only wearing a dress with sleeves but I live WAY out in the boonies and let’s say I have no tan lines anywhere! LOL

I’ve been careful about wearing sunscreen the last couple months, but I had some residual tan lines.  Jergen’s Natural Glow worked for me in like 3 days.
