I work outside and despite wearing sunscreen, I developed a tan line on my face.

Yep. I have good old raccoon eyes. So, like an idiot, I thought I'd try and fix it with self tanner. Now....it looks worse than before and it won't wash off!!

Am I stuck like this for a week or so? Is there something I can do to fix what I tried to fix?

Help.

Do an almond facial scrub. Fake tan will be gone in 48 hours.

It doesn’t last long.

Pin on a tail to the back of your trousers. Embrace your inner raccoon.

So I'm assuming you're a gay construction worker?

Do NOT use scrub of ANY sort under or around your eyes to be clear OP.

R1 is hopefully referring to the rest of your face. I actually don't think that will do much though. Time is more of your friend. That, and zinc oxide. Desitin is the best.

Also, didn't someone recently post an article that stated American sunscreen to be ineffective?

No, R4, I'm an instructor at a railway.

Hydrogen peroxide will pull some color off. Use a cotton ball, do not get it in your eyes, and rinse afterward and moisturize. Otherwise passage of time is the only thing to get rid of it. A scrub is drastic so maybe real gentle if you do.

You need to wear a hat with three inch brim or greater for outdoor work. You probably also need better sunblock, use a sweatproof, like a stick sunblock.

You'll be fine. Nobody looks at you anyway.

Sit in a steam room for at least 20 minutes. The self tanner should then rub off on a towel

Is your hole hairy?

R6 Most American sunscreens are based on Avobenzone, which is an inferior UVA sunscreen. Both UVA and UVB rays contribute to tanning.

by Anonymousreply 1404/14/2019

it's ridiculous to think that silly man-made sunscreens will filter all effects of UVA/UVB rays.

R15 Yes, it is. But who’s making that claim?

wear sunglasses until it wears off.

Use a tinted sunscreen you stupid git.

I got nothing except my dermatologist said to reapply sunscreen every 15 minutes when outside.

How humiliating! Reminds me of when Bunny Bixler and I were in the semi-finals—the very semi-finals, mind you—of the ping-pong tournament at the club and this ghastly thing happened. We were both playing way over our heads and the score was 29-28. And we had this really terrific volley and I stepped back to get this really terrific shot. And I stepped on the ping-pong ball! I just squashed it to bits. And then Bunny and I ran to the closet of the game room to get another ping-pong ball and the closet was locked! Imagine? We had to call the whole thing off. Well, it was ghastly. Well, it was just ghastly.

This happened to me, but we had to keep filming.
