More than often people want to cover up their tan lines when they have an important event approaching. The kind of dress they would want to wear at the event might reveal the tan lines, which can ultimately spoil the overall appearance. Wear on the dress or the outfit that you are considering and you will be able to figure out how much area of the skin is exposed.
Another thing that you could do to cover up your tan lines would be to invest in a top or outfit that has a neckline similar to your tans. This will help camouflage your tan perfectly for the upcoming event. However, this will require a little investment.
You can gradually merge your tan lines with the rest of the skin by exposing the tan lines to sunlight. However, this will require a little patience. Apply a highly effective sun block on the darker areas of your skin to prevent further tan. Use a lighter sunscreen on tan lines and be in sunlight for some time. Repeat this a couple of times and you will be able to even out your tan lines.
Tanning salons can also prove to be of great help to even out these tan lines. They can tan the specific area and merge them with rest of the skin. Alternatively you can even use tanning sprays, lotions and creams. But you need to be careful whilst you use them because you are never sure whether these products will give you exactly the desired skin shade or not.
Using make up to cover up these uneven tan lines is yet another thing that you can do. If you are not too good with make up, you can consider the services of a professional makeup expert. He/she will help camouflage your tan lines perfectly.
It is true that tan lines are bad but you need not be disappointed. Just the right techniques and a little patience is all that you need to cover them up.
