    Exclamation I should have done this sooner

    Advertisements
    So our ceremony is about a week away and I have the worst tan lines. I know I should have tried to fix them sooner but I've been so busy with our move that happens the next day. For those who tan do you think I have enough time to get rid of the lines? What do you recommend? What kind of tanning bed is the best?

    It all depends on how sensitive your skin is. Do you have really light skin? Dark skin? Do you burn easy?

    You're like me Which in that case, my suggestion is to get a really good tanning lotion, and go into the tanning bed every day. If the max is 15 mins, the first day go in for 10 or 11, the 2nd go for 13, and then tan at the max the rest of the days. Your tan lines should be close to gone if not completely gone by the end of the one week.

    If you say you don't burn easily, I'd go to a tanning bed, and stay in for about 8 minutes (I go in stand up beds, and ten is the max, idk what the max is for your salon, or the watts either.) If it gets too hot in that time, just get out early. I use Australia Gold Bronzer, or TOA, which is a desinger skin lotion... AGB is definately the better for your budget, but TOA has twice the bronzer & is firming/anti-aging (but it's about 40 bucks more expensive too lol)
    If you don't see like how slowly the lines are going away enough, just spray tan.

    be cool.

    I like Denim and Diamonds - it's about $40 per bottle.

    You could always try to do the whole spray tan thing - but I wouldn't recommend it if you've never done it. I turned slightly orange.

    Make sure to ask at the salon which bed to use - explain your situation - they should be able to direct you down the right path!
