Oh man am I angry at myself.
My wedding dress is strapless. I’ve been painstakingly staying out of the sun and covering up to avoid weird tanlines.
I was outside for 1 hour yesterday (!!!) with only light sunblock, and i got burned, but only in a square spot on my chest. My shower is next weekend, and I can’t wear the dress I bought for it because the tan lines will be too weird. But honestly, that’s the least of my worries.
The wedding is a month and a half away. How can I even this out before putting on the strapless dress?
Thank you so much in advance for your suggestions!

Spray tan… its new! It is basically air brush tanning… It will last 5 days (ish) thats what I would do if I were you.

aside from the cosmetics of it all, take care of your skin!! moisturize moisturize moisturize, then worry about how it’s gonna look!
i use "PCA" moisturizer after my acid peels, maybe ask your dermatologist what’s best for your sunburn??
dont worry it’s not so bad!!

yep .. agreed not so bad. Just wait a few days for your skin to relax. Then what I would do is use some of that Jergens natural glow lotion to try to even it out. This exact same thing happened to me last summer, and this worked for me (but I have darker skin to begin with). good luck!

If anyone ever gets a bad burn, noxzema will take most of the red out, seriously! I was soooo careful not to get burnt before my brother’s wedding in which i was a bridesmaid with a strapless dress and of course, at the rehearsal, the day before, yep, sunburn to the max!!!
I was soo mad at myself, but someone gave me the noxzema (the cream in the blue jar) and had me rub it on a few times that night and it took most of the red and the hurt out of it.
For now though in your case, I’d say even i out with some of the gradual tanner lotion.

wear a diff dress for the shower and for the wedding the burn will go away- there is plenty of time- and if you still have tan line spray tan it even
