If your attempt to use a self-tanner ends in a blotchy and uneven skin, there are a few tricks and skin care products that can help you fix that bad tan. Discovering that you ended up with streaks and smudges is both a beauty disaster and major disapointment – here is what you can do to fix the problem.
Streaks happen as a result of not using enough formula and baking soda can help you fix that. Since baking soda is a fantastic exfoliate, it can really help in such a situation. Mix it with some freshly squeezed lemon juice and treat the problem areas until the unwanted color disappears.
If you ended up with a #tan a lot darker than you initially wanted, apply a generous amount of baby oil on your #skin and leave it on for about 10 minutes. The top layer of the color will then loosen and lift and this will leave your skin lighter than it first appeared.
If your skin is drier in some areas, you will find out that your tan is darker in some spots than others. This happens because dry skin absorbs more color than necessary. To lighten those spots up, exfoliate and #moisturize them. Make sure to moisturize the dry areas, such as your elbows and knees, before you apply your self-tanner.
