Another Tan Post

5 posts in this topic

The regimen works great for me, but its always looked like I'm tanning, and only tanning my face.

I think its mostly the moisturizer. Although the BP also make me look tan, the moisturizer just makes it look silly.

I'm from Norway, so I have naturally very pale skin, and the skin from the neck to the face looks just silly.

Recently started using AHA+ (50/50 4 times a week and 100% 3 times a week, pm), which makes it a lot more silly looking.

What can I do about this? Is there some other moisturizer that wont make me tan (keep in mind I'm quite flaky/ dry, been on the regimen for about 4 months now, will it ever go away?)?

Also the tanning, will it go too go away with time?


Dreams do come true.

When I was on the regimen, I actually liked the tan. Maybe you should just tan the rest of you and just...see it as an added benefit? :P

Well for me the tan never went away. I have tanned patches all over my face that's buried deep beneath the skin (Probably in the dermis). I got rid of the brown marks from acne, but the tan BP gave me looks permanent, so be careful.
