Getting the much wanted bronze color is quite an arduous task. If you’re the type of individual patient enough to lie under the sun to soak up the much needed rays, kudos to you. Not everyone enjoys the prone experience of getting a tan as it can also lead to tan lines.
Tan lines can get in the way of providing an even tone to your body. It’s also quite frustrating with how these covered patches of skin can get in the way of getting the head to toe bronze color. One way to rid these tan lines would be to wait for your skin to shed off the dark hue but that is quite time consuming and unpredictable.
One can’t lie naked in just any beach therefore tan lines are always a bane when it comes to sunbathing. No need to beat yourself with this little hurdle as you can erase the presence of tan lines without having to expend so much for it.
Here are some tips to help you blend the lighter lines for the much beloved bronze color:
- Make sure to exfoliate your skin prior to getting a tan. This makes your skin more even and eliminates the layer of dirt and dead skin thus giving your skin more chances of earning the dark color.
- Since we can’t lie around naked, a good way to cover up tan lines is by using self-tanners. Using a paint brush, dab a good amount of self-tanners unto the lines. Continue to apply until the color evens out. Continuous usage of a self-tanner will erase the lightness of the tan lines thus providing you with an overall tan.
- If you’re a little short on time, using a bronzer to cover up your tan lines is a great idea. Much like how it is applied to your cheeks, dust some of the powder on the lines and slowly work it on the skin.
- If you’re more on the natural approach to getting rid of tan lines, no need to worry. Some of the quickest home remedies are cucumbers and potatoes. Due to the high water content in cucumbers, puree into a paste and applying it to your skin will aid in ridding off the tan lines. Let the concoction sit for twenty minutes before washing off. Potatoes on the other hand are best used sliced and applied immediately to your skin for a good fifteen minutes.
With these nifty tips, tan lines should not be an obstacle to enjoying a good time of tanning.
