A tan can grace our complexions with a tropical, sun kissed glow, but maintaining a perfect tan cant always be practical or safe. Tanning can not only darken the skin but damage it as well. The sun's ultraviolet radiation can contribute to premature aging or even skin cancer. Sunless or faux tanning is a popular alternative for those who would like to achieve a bronzy look without exposing their skin to the sun for long periods of time. Self tanners are great for those who live in cool or mainly overcast climates.
Faux tanners can cause tons of embarassment for some. Spray and lotion tans can leave streaks, or the just leave us with the skin of an oompa loompa.
So if you ever expierenced a fake tan dilemma here are a couple ways to fix it :]
Scrub Away Streaks.
Streaks are caused by missing spots or not using enough when you apply. If you end up looking streaky, use a sugar body scrub which can even out the color.
Using a facial buffing pad doused in lemon juice can buff out a splotchy tan while exfoliating the unevenness of the skin's surface.
A Blend of Baking Soda
A mix of whitening toothpaste and acetone applied with your fingers can remove splotches. It will work the same way as your teeth. It will lift any dirt or darkness while the acetone will remove the color.
Baby Oil Bath.
