How Can I Get Rid Of These Tan Lines On My Back?

Postby Cadell » Thu Oct 05, 2017 9:24 pm

I am REALLY pale. And I never tan because I'm so fair complected, & I just burn really bad. My mom said I should have been a red head cuz I have skin like my red headed great grandpa, but I got stuck with light brown/blond hair and blue eyes..Anyway I always wear sunscreen, & I missed 2 spots on my back one day when I was painting a horse tank, & I burned super bad & I looked like the American flag! Now I have 2 stripes down my back..any way I can fade the tan/burn or make it go away??

use aloe so it goes down and feels cool ! and you could use a self tanner like jergens natural glow , to blend the color and get some color w/o sun . you can buy it at any drugstore

They will fade with time. Since you have fair skin, I would not recommend tanning too much. Skin cancer is a killer. I had a friend that past away because of it, he had a tiny melanoma on his nose. Sunscreen does not offer total protection, beside it doesn't cover you entirely, nor it is evenly applied. Cheers.
