Spray tan?

get an airbrush tan where someone actually sprays you so they can focus on those pale areas and blend. Start now so you can go back and build up your tan over the next week. Good Luck!

You’re gonna have to go with a fake bake. ๐Ÿ˜‰ Just take care of it sooner this week rather than later so you don’t have any risk of that “orange” look on your big day. Breathe in… it’s gonna be okay! ๐Ÿ™‚

Exfoliate your skin like crazy with a good scrub, take cool showers, and moisturize A LOT. This promotes fast rejuvenation and your skin cells will grow back quicker versus, waiting for them to fall off naturally. Start using a daily “Glowing Lotion” such as Jergens in the places that are much lighter. Use a mirror, or have someone lotion your pale spots. It will fill in the weird blank parts and since it isn’t a rapid result, you have a lot of time for it to even itself out. That’s just what I would do, but I wish you the best of luck!

I just wanted to agree! Call a sunless tanning place and make sure they do the hand-spraying before you go!

Or just apply sunblock to the areas that are already tanned and get back out in the sun.

@Mrs.ChubbyBunny: This works for me and would be what I would try first. After that I’d try the spray tan. Just don’t try to fix it yourself with at home tanners as I’ve heard horror stories.

@Mrs.ChubbyBunny: Great advice! The Jergens natural glow works really well for this dilemma ๐Ÿ™‚

I’m not a fan of the spray tan and I don’t like self-tanners (the smell, the streak).  I covered my tan parts with sunscreen and left my white parts uncovered.  I was pretty much able to blend in.

I third the Jergens! I love love love that stuff. You can go with the gradual tan lotion and they also have an “instant” tan that is supposed to work in one application. If you go with the instant, I’d suggest testing the colour on your ankle or inner thigh first and then having somone *carefully* fill in your spots. Good luck:)
