I’m getting married next month & have a slight problem..
When driving recently it was super sunny & got burnt on my driving arm.. I was wearing a t-shirt so now have a really dark arm that doesnt match the other & a bad t-shirt tan line 🙁
My dress is strapless so it will be super noticable, does anyone have any tips/ideas how to cover it, blend it.. or anything that will help not make it stick out so much??
i’m not interested in getting a sprat tan, dont like the way they feel – makes me all sticky and gross and also look very unnatrual.
I really just want a super natural look – I dont even want a tan at all!
has anyone tried body makeup or anything similar? any help would be hugely appreciated!

It should fade out almost completely in a months time and will be hardly noticeable by the wedding. Just try to be careful and wear sunscreen up until the wedding?

I’m not sure how much it will fade in a month’s time. The last time I had a really bad sunburn (which then turned into a tan), I had a one-shoulder tan for almost a year!
I think your options are get a spray tan to match, go to the solarium (not something I recommend), or use foundation to cover it up on the day. The thing is, it would probably be easier to make the rest of your body and the other arm dark, rather than lighten the tanned arm. MAC does a Face & Body foundation that’s quite good.

Just be diligent about exfoliating when you are in the shower. Use a loofa. A month from now everything should have evened out! Don’t stress!

@kriss85: Depending on your skin, you should be able to let it fade and be totally fine. I actually had something similar happen to me when i was a bridesmaid. I got a spray tan done, and I wore a bandeau top (because it was being done by hand) and totally forgot that the dress was low-backed. So I bought some Tan Towels and applied them over the lighter spots. Worked perfectly.

go to your local tanning salon and see if they have a tan line pen. I can’t remember the brand name of the one I used but it worked like magic. It had my super obvious tan lines gone in a week. I got mine form ultimate exposure tanning salon. It comes in a little stick like lipgloss and your brush it on the line its super easy and it was only 10.00 ! Good Luck!
